Workshop in London, UK 2014
From Monday, June 09, 2014
To Friday, June 13, 2014

PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS WORKSHOP IS A ONE TIME EVENT AND IS NOT A YYTT MODULE.

Yin Yoga: principles and practice.

We are pleased to be able to return to TriYoga and guide an immersion into the anatomical principles of yoga. These principles apply to all forms of yoga but the focus of this immersion will be on the floor postures of yin yoga. The long, gentle poses of yin allow us the time to explore anatomical principles. Please click here for registration.

The various styles of yoga have different and sometimes conflicting rules of alignment, why? This course helps to resolve these contradictions by demonstrating the fundamental anatomical differences between students. The standard skeletal variation in the human population is quite startling and once it is appreciated teachers begin to understand why the rules of alignment work for some but not others, and why rules of alignment vary from style to style.

In addition to anatomy this course will also explore the basics of pranayama practice, the yin of breathlessness and the yang of controlled rhythmic breathing.

Topics covered:

The four segments of the thigh.

The six segments of the torso.

The fourteen skeletal segments.

Skeletal variation: tension and compression.

Yin tissue vs Yang tissue.

Yin exercise vs Yang exercise.

Yin pranayama vs Yang prananyama.

Location Triyoga
