Yin Yoga Teacher Training

Yin Yoga, the practice of holding a floor passive pose for 3 minutes or more to access mobility in the connective tissue, is sometimes misunderstood. What is this connective tissue? Where is it? Why should we stretch it at all?
Join Joe Barnett, one of Yin Yoga’s most respected teachers, as he reveals the truth behind the philosophy and physiology of Yin Yoga and its benefit to practitioners. Through a hands-on interactive study of skeletal landmarks and joint range-of-motion Joe will lead you to appreciate natural anatomical variances and how they should inform you as a yoga teacher in adapting postures for different people. Flossie Park will serve as a support teacher leading some practices and practicums.
