functional anatomy & physiology in the context of YIN yoga)

You can participate in each 100-hour module separately, or if you wish to get a 300-hour
Yoga Alliance Certificate, you can choose to participate in three modules together (after completion
of 200 RYS), which allows you to become RYT 500 (RYT 200 + RYT 300).
* For your best benefits, we put these 3 modules in a certain order, but you can choose to
participate in them in a different configuration as well.
* Each module can give you 100 hours of CEP (Continuing Education Program) if you are
already RYT 200 or RYT 500, and all together they can give you the accreditation of RYT 500.
About Yin Yoga
During the last few years, Yin Yoga has become one of the most popular yoga styles.
Perhaps our typical modern ‘Yang’ lifestyle makes us so exhausted that we naturally need to
connect more with our “yin-side”.
Yin is a great answer to counter-balance the intensity of our contemporary times. It is nourishment
for our parasympathetic nervous system, and a deeply healing, meditative practice.
Yin Yoga is a slow-paced style of yoga with set asanas that are ‘held’ for longer periods of
time (usually five minutes and longer), which allows us to apply gentle pressure and
compression on our tissues. The whole point of Yin practice is to relax the muscles as
much as possible, to target the deeper connective tissues - especially fascia, our amazing
Yin Yoga is based on TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine), and therefore works in tandem
with meridians and acupressure points targeting our vital organs and balancing the 5 Elements:
Water, Wood, Fire, Earth and Metal.
Yin Yoga brings our focus more inwards, and can be an excellent bridge towards
meditation, or can become meditation itself.
