ONLINE 2 Day Yin Yoga for Yoga Teachers with Nina Goldberger E-RYT

Date: Saturday 20th & Sunday 21st February 2021
Time: 10am-5pm
Venue: Online, via Zoom

In this training we will not only practice & feel the effects of unblocking our energy lines, but learn about the science & purpose behind Yin Yoga and its roots in Traditional Chinese Philosophy.

Yin Yoga offers us an opportunity to ‘clean house’ so that the body can function more harmoniously and potentially aid healing, reduce stress & anxiety and calm down the nervous system, bringing about health & wellbeing, in body and also mind.
Please note: This course is open to previously certified 200hr Yoga Teachers

The workshop will cover:

  • Exploring the traditional yin postures and why we practice them in this way
  • The benefits of this ‘sweet surrender’ practice as a whole
  • The role of the nervous system
  • Exploring the Meridian Lines
  • Modifications for people from different walks of life or those who are experiencing injury or are pregnant
  • How yin practice correlates to the seasons and the complementing elements & Sense Organs
  • Pranayama
  • Philosophy
  • Yoga Nidra session

An opportunity to learn from your teacher and from each other; part practice, part philosophy, part exploration and discussion for you to share your own experiences and stories about Yin practice.

Yin Yoga is the perfect accompaniment to a very Yang practice such as Ashtanga, or any other kind of higher intensity sports to find balance and lead a healthy lifestyle.

This course is led by Nina Goldberger (www.withnina.com), it includes a training manual and will be held online.

Dear Sally, Thank you for making the week in Spain such an inspirational and transformative experience. It was wonderful to have the head-space and time to really absorb a yogic practice and all the wonderful yoga philosophy as well as some life-changing meditations and chanting. Both of you and Chris have a wonderful, caring and heartfelt attitude towards teaching a subject which you clearly love and I have come home ready to simplify my life and make some significant changes. This wouldn’t have happened without the week in the beautiful Hacienda.

Thank you so much for the last 6 months training. Your course has given me an excellent grounding and a real launch pad to get out there and teach yoga. My first proper class last week had a lady with a post pregnancy abdominal hernia I wouldn’t have had a clue about that if we hadn’t had discussed on your pregnancy day! The course structure is excellent and having a mix of teachers is great

T. Samworth, Yoga Teacher

Sally, you and your team have been amazing and I’m so pleased and blessed that I’ve had the pleasure of training with you and the other Laxmi ladies! I hope that our paths cross again very soon. Thank you

I wanted to say thank you for such a wonderful training program. Before I embarked on this journey I had no personal direction, and my life has always been about survival, work – giving everything I have to others and really not getting any nurturing or self development back. Your program has changed my life around. I have retrained in something completely different, something I didn’t think was ever possible and have discovered a new and wonderful world I didn’t really knew existed, and a subject that I find so interesting I have such a thirst to continue my learning and self expansion. The first yoga lesson I went to, was not quite two years ago, and here I am nearly ready to teach my own class, I can’t quite believe it. I think you are an inspiration and thank you for your wisdom, guidance, humour and support, and I really look forward to seeing you in 2017.
