50 HR Yin/Restorative Yoga Teacher Training – Ottawa

bv02YogaWe are running a 50 HR Yin/Restorative Yoga Teacher Training in  Ottawa, Ontario Canada beginning in April  2016.

These days much of what you see in the yoga classroom is yoga acrobatics and yoga workouts. The yang component is strong but the yin component of the yoga practice has been gaining ground for years.  Although there is benefit to moving quickly through poses.  Most of our lives are already so yang in nature, and not enough people have a restorative or yin aspect to their practice.  With the practice of Yin Yoga is experiencing a dramatic increase in popularity. Both teachers and students alike are expressing a desire for more depth and knowledge about this contemplative, restorative and energizing style of yoga.

With the practice of Yin Yoga and Restorative Yoga sharing many common attributes we have combined them into one training.  We have also added a Trigger Point therapy section that mixes in so well with both styles of yoga giving you all the tools necessary for a healing, reenergizing, and calming practice!  Used alone these are 3 amazing tools, but used together they are even that much more powerful!
