Join me and travel to Tuscany next spring!! I will be teaching a 60hrs CEP Yoga Alliance® certified course of Yin Yoga
Giving yourself the time to fully immerse in the teachings of Yin Yoga while being pampered like you are on a retreat. Being surrounded with like-minded others at the communal table with organically harvested vegetarian meals, enjoying each others company and conversations, but as well being immersed with the silence of the rural Tuscan countryside.
Yin Yoga is a slow paced and passive style of yoga practice where postures are practiced on the floor in a static way for an extended period of time ranging from two to five minutes. In this style we position our body in a particular pose and then let go of all muscular efforts and surrender it to the floor for gravity to do the work. By doing so we relax our muscles and apply moderate stress to the deepest layers of connective tissues of the body -tendons, fascia, and ligaments- improving the health and mobility of joints.
In this training, you will learn the concept of Yin and Yang, the difference between them, and how do they complement each other. You will learn how to practice and teach more than twenty main Yin Yoga postures with their modifications and variations. You will also study in depth the comparative and functional anatomy, difference in bones and the joint structures and how these differences affect the asana practice of each individual.
When combined with internal awareness Yin yoga also becomes a highly meditative tool to cultivate inner silence, enhance awareness and explore the deeper realm of our consciousness.
For you, to be on the receiving side of the teachings of yoga. To let yourself reconnect to your purpose as a teacher, to learn new, physically and mentally. A gift to oneself, to fully recharge and experience how the teachings of yin yoga will enrich your niche as a yoga teacher or deepen your personal practice, if you have no yoga certification yet.
We will have as well some quality time together, away from the yoga-mats, to fully enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Maraviglia. A nature walk in the countryside near and around Maraviglia with our host, so do bring a pair of comfortable shoes!! A visit to the beautiful Chianti area, with the winery Badia a Coltibuono, set inside a 1000 year old Benedictine Abbey can be part of this trip and if the weather allows it, we will walk in the middle of the Chianti forest where there are some incredible hidden natural springs where we can swim… this is a special and very loved place.
