OCTOBER 20-24, 2023 - IN GERMAN

50h YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING

"In the age of constant acceleration, nothing is more exhaling than going slow. In the age of constant distraction, nothing is as luxurious as paying attention. And in the age of constant movement, nothing is so urgent as sitting still."

 

- Pico Iyer

In the western world we often live according to the motto "Higher - Faster - Further"; everything has to go quickly, strength is required, we have a lot to do and our calendars and to-do lists are bursting at the seams - even for us experienced yogis. All of this is pure yang. The yin as a counterpart - pausing, stillness, softness and passivity - is often neglected, although we are coming to realize that this is exactly what we need physically and mentally. Yin Yoga creates a wonderful balance to the hectic everyday life, the hustle and bustle of the world, but also to powerful sports and dynamic yoga styles.

Especially in today's world, which is changing faster than our nervous system can keep up with, so many of us long for more peace in mind and body. More and more of us are longing for an everyday life that is not always about performance and perfection, but rather about inner peace, clarity, balance and an answer to the question: what makes me special as an individual? How much would our world change if we could all settle down a little more and find mechanisms to regulate our stress and not pass it on to others? This is exactly where the Yin Yoga practice offers helpful and profound impulses - with very simple means that are accessible to all people and bodies.

 

Teaching Yin Yoga is something very special –  you support your students to keep the body healthy and supple and to release blockages that have arisen from years of stress and one-sided strain. As teachers, we help them, through the individual variations of the postures, to arrive more consciously in their own bodies and to listen more to their very own needs. We teach - sometimes very subtly - that it is not a question of forcing ourselves into an external form or an ideal image, but of perceiving our individuality and always adapting our postures so that they fit our body and to how we are feeling that particular day. We offer our students a series of postures that stimulate the flow of energy in the body and can therefore always have a holistic effect. We also invite them on a wonderful journey towards a relaxed nervous system and new mental and emotional balance.

THE INSTRUCTOR

Caro (E-RYT 200, YACEP), who learned from Bernie Clark and Paul Grilley, among others, is convinced that the world needs a slower pace. That the silence and energy work in the Yin Yoga postures strengthens the connection to our own body and intuition and that we can find out more about ourselves. As a business psychologist and life & embodiment coach, she is particularly interested in the mental-emotional benefits of Yin Yoga and the connection between mind and body. She continues to educate herself in the areas of mental health, yin yoga and Traditional Chinese Medicine. She is also pleased to see how the students often exhibit a completely different posture, calmness and energy after a Yin Yoga class.

"Caro has a way of gently giving others space for their being while being very present. Her knowledge and excitement for the topics and especially how she incorporates embodiment into everything are very inspiring and keep helping me experience my body and view of the world in new ways. Thank you! <3"
