Event description
20hr immersion for qualified Yin teachers who want to delve deeper into TCM, Yin & Mindfulness

About this Event

This 20 hour advanced Yin Yoga Teacher Training is designed for those who hold a 50 hour or more teacher training in Yin Yoga. Yin Yoga is rising in popularity and can be misconstrued as a stretch class, missing the deeper energetic benefits of the practice.

This training will dive deeper into the principles of TCM relevant to the Yin Yoga philosophy of working with the subtle energy lines of the body. The second limb of this advanced training is to deepen students personal mindfulness practise to better equip them to create potent Yin Yoga classes and workshops. Led by Clare Lovelace (trained by Sarah Powers in 2015) and Andrew Dowler (TCM expert & practitioner). This is your chance to fall in love with Yin all over again, take your teaching and practice to the next level and stand out from the crowd.

  • About Clare

“I believe that yoga does not just take place on the mat but intertwines with every element of our lives. Through my practice I have understood that happiness is not based on external conditions and can be achieved by living simply and mindfully with generosity and compassion. This is a philosophy I want to share with the world.

Yin Yoga is an incredibly powerful practice. I have seen huge shifts within myself and my students on a very deep level. One of the most powerful teachings within Yin Yoga is learning how to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. During the long held, passive postures we learn how to look within, with compassion and acceptance at all parts of ourselves, both the shadow and the light. This takes huge patience, strength and courage and by practicing regularly we become very kind, compassionate, patient and resilient. The practice of yin yoga begins in stillness on the mat. We start by going inwards. When we become adept at viewing ourselves in this kind and objective way we start to realise the interconnectedness of all humans and all life on earth as well as our interconnectedness to the planet itself. When we see struggle and suffering within ourselves we become tolerant of others because we understand the human condition. The more able and willing we are to make peace within, the more able and willing we are to spread peace outside of ourselves. Yin yoga is the silent revolution that will change the world.”
