Yin Yoga and Meditation Teacher Training with Jenn Thomas and Dr. Tracey Sondik
A Yin Yoga and Meditation Training for Teachers, Mental Health Professionals, and Serious Students. Part ll: Integration, Mar 30-Apr 3
Discover the rich potential that Yin Yoga can offer to your personal teaching and practice! Join Jenn Thomas, All That Matters Yin Yoga and Meditation teacher, and Dr. Tracey Sondik, Clinical psychologist, 500-E-RYT Yoga Instructor at Samadhi Yoga Studio in Manchester, CT and teacher for the Center for Integrative Yoga Studies, for this 2-weekend immersion program designed for yoga teachers, mental health professionals, and serious students. Gain insight into the ways of quiet surrender and learn how seeing things as they are acts as a gateway to the peace you and your students/clients long to experience.
Yin Yoga invites you to meet yourself fully, in a direct way, infused with kindness and experienced through the body. This practice, which takes place primarily through long held floor postures, transforms your physical practice and develops concentration, mindful awareness, and ease. When coupled with a blend of ancient wisdom teachings (tantric philosophy and buddha dharma) and western psychology, it also revolutionizes personal growth.
Immersion Objectives: This Yin Yoga immersion sheds light on the quieter side of yoga that is very often eclipsed by the frenetic pace of life and the more yang versions of yoga currently in demand. In both sessions learn how to slow way down through Yin Yoga and meditation practice, be immersed in the body, and have time to feel into the core channels of your being. Explore your subtle nature emerging as you gain a deeper understanding of your mind, your inner emotional world, and the blockages and barriers that keep you from living a more authentic life.
Combining Yin Yoga practice, meditation instruction and practice, presentation/lecture, demonstrations, dyad work, and group dialogue/discussion provides a broad container and give space to dive deep.
Required Text: Instructors' Manual for each weekend, $40 each. Payment made directly to instructors on the first day of immersion.
