FAQs about Yin Teacher Trainings

I get a lot of questions about the structure of my Yin Teacher Trainings.  So, I thought I’d take the time to answer some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS) here in one place.  When a studio decides to host a Yin training, we work together to offer discounts for studio members or for yogis purchasing more than one Yin module at the studio.  So, once you’ve decided when and where you’d like to do your training, you can visit the studio website for those details. But, this is all the other good stuff you need to know to train with me and work […]

Yin Yoga Autumn Newsletter

Time flies! (which is my way of saying sorry I didn’t send a Spring Newsletter)  Instead of sitting at my computer writing said newsletter, here’s what I’ve been up to instead. In February, I ran my first movement workshop at a CrossFit gym (the amazing CrossFit Freefall in Seaford) and we played around with efficient and fun ways to mobilize hips and shoulders so these Crossfitters can jump, squat, and lift better.  Later that month I returned to Perth (and one of my favorite studios Beyond Being) to lead Yin Sequencing training.  Then I squeezed in a weekend of education for myself with MovNat.  And by education […]

Anatomy Training for People Who Don’t Like Anatomy (Yet) !

This year Movement by Design founder Luke Bryan and I have partnered to create and facilitate a new kind of anatomy training for yoga teachers.  Rather than asking teachers to memorize muscle origins and insertions or scripted alignment cues, we challenge teachers to think critically about what good movement means and how to achieve it.  We focus on teaching movement principles that hold true whether you are extending into a backbend or diving under an olympic lift.   So how did an Olympic Lifting coach and a yoga teacher meet and decide to develop training together in the first place?  Well, funny […]

Last Yin Training of 2014

It’s hard to believe how quickly this year has flown by!  These photos are from the last Yin L2 training of 2014 at Grass Roots Yoga.  In the L2 trainings the students spend more time developing their own sequences so they can integrate what they have learned about myofascial meridians and the pathways of Traditional Chinese Medicine. As part of the training, the students break out into small groups and each one gets a chance to lead the group in a short Yin class.  The designated teacher guides her students through a 15 minute Yin practice and at the end she […]
