100HR YIN YOGA & CHINESE MERIDIANS TEACHER TRAINING
NOVEMBER 11-22 , 2020
SACRED VALLEY, CUSCO, PERU
The 100hr Yin Yoga & Meridians Teacher Training is designed to develop skillful and soulful Yin yoga teachers. We welcome 200hr or 500hr yoga teachers and those who simply are passionate about physical, emotional, and spiritual self-growth.
This Yin yoga teacher training focuses primarily on emotional and spiritual growth through the understanding of our physical composition. We begin with looking at our current limited beliefs and welcome the potential of infinite growth through study of anatomy & physiology, Chinese meridians system, energy work, pranayama, meditation, Qi Gong, different philosophical approaches on worldview, nutrition, and self-care.
There are two essential pillars that we emphasize on while providing you the important techniques to lead intelligent and soulful Yin yoga classes. The first pillar is to have a thorough understanding of our unique skeletal differences, how fascia works and how our physiology affects our emotional growth. The second pillar is to simulate spiritual expansion through self-awareness and self-love. These two fundamental pillars are your building blocks in becoming an insightful Yin yoga teacher.
The 100hr Yin yoga teacher training program is very theoretical as well as practical. In addition to learning the theory of the ancient Chinese meridians system and anatomy & physiology, you will also learn how to design your own intelligent Yin yoga sequence, Yin poses variations & modifications, leading Yoga Nidra (Yogic Sleep), and apply Thai Acupressure massage & adjustments.
One of the most important aspects of teaching Yin yoga is your ability to hold space in silence and as well through story-telling. In this training, you will learn the fine art of how to guide your students energetically onto a transcendental Yin yoga journey.
To expand our physical and emotional growth takes courage and vulnerability. We’ve created a safe space for you to shed away your worldly identities and allow your true self to shine bright!

SOME HIGHLIGTHS OF THE PROGRAM
Include in training (no additional cost)
Experience a true Andean ritual! Give thanks to Mother Earth (or the Pachamama) with the guidance of a Shaman, an Andean priest. The Pachamama Offering ceremony is part of a system of reciprocity between the material world and the spiritual world and seeks to give back to the Earth all that it has given us. According to Andean beliefs, it helps establish balance in our lives. During the Pachamama Ceremony we can ask for our most desired wishes, what we dream for our future, and what we want for our loved ones.

A spiritual pilgrimage to Paru-Paru the highest community (4200m) in Pisac, where we will engage ourselves in a round walk around the three lakes surrounded by beautiful mountains that hold a deal space for meditation. An opportunity also to meet the local people of the community and share with them local organic dishes and see the most representative kinds of potatoes from over more than thousand varieties that are grown here in the Sacred Valley.

Optional: Pisac Ruins (additional cost - $50USD)
The Pisac Ruins are reputed to be the second most sacred site in Peru aside from Machu Picchu.

These ruins are reputed to have served military, agricultural, and religious purposes.
