Teacher Training: Elemental Yin (Level 2)

"Elemental Yin: Weaving Together Strands of Science, Practice, and Nature" delves more deeply into aspects of physical anatomy, breath/energetic work, meditation, and the nervous system, relevant to Yin Yoga. Using the Elements of Nature (such as Earth, Water, Fire, etc.) as a centerpiece, the training ties together time-honored techniques and traditional wisdom with the growing wealth of scientific knowledge about the body and brain. This training is designed to help you bring it all together – old and new, big picture and detail, theory and practice – into an integrated and personalized practice. You will add to your repertoire of Yin Yoga poses, and also refine your approach to class design. We’ll also cover the neuroscience of mindfulness, the biomechanical and neurophysiological science behind stretching, skeletal variation, and recent research on fascia.

Addie deHilster (E-RYT 500) has studied Yin Yoga in Vancouver, BC with renowned teacher, Bernie Clark, as well as in workshops and retreats with Paul Grilley and Sarah Powers, the primary founders of this style of yoga. Also a dedicated practitioner of Vipassana (Insight) Meditation, she continued her studies in the Mindfulness Yoga & Meditation training program at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, in which Yin Yoga is included as an embodied meditation practice. Having earned her 500-hour credential in the therapeutic Yapana Yoga style taught by Leeann Carey, Addie brings a gentle, healing perspective to the practice of Yin Yoga, informed by current research on the biomechanics of yoga. Addie leads Yin Yoga teacher trainings regionally, as well as leading the 200-hour teacher training program at Spiral Path Yoga Center.
