Residential Program
Because of the transformative nature of this 100 hour training we present it as a 2 week residential program at Land of Medicine Buddha . This beautiful retreat center is located in a redwood forest on the California coast. Its meditation hall, temple and shrines, coupled with its natural beauty, make it an ideal place to rest and reflect between sessions.

Anatomy is the key
The backbone of the YYTT 1 is anatomy because without an understanding of muscles and joints true confidence in teaching is elusive. This anatomical insight is crucial when dealing with injuries, contraindications and the logic of adjustments and variations. Anatomy is a vast subject but the basics, properly understood, clarifies and simplifies all yoga practice, regardless of style.

Learn by touching, learn by doing
Yoga anatomy cannot be learned from a book but must be directly experienced in ourselves and our classmates. Our practice of poses is augmented with movement tests we perform on each other. These exercises give a teacher confidence to assess the needs and limitations of their students. Hour by hour, day by day, with patient repetition, the fundamentals of yin yoga become crystal clear.


Yin and Yang Asana practice
In addition to lectures and demonstrations we will have two hours of yin and yang yoga each day. Yin Yoga is the relaxed practice of floor postures for three to five minutes at a time. A Yin practice emphasizes the connective tissues of the hips, thighs, pelvis and lower spine. It prepares the body and mind for longer meditation practices. Yang Yoga is the rhythmic, flowing repetition of movements that require strength and balance. A Yang practice emphasizes the muscle tissues and circulatory system. Yang Yoga leaves one feeling invigorated and alert.
