Where Yin Yoga is possibly the fastest growing trend in the Yoga world, it is often confused with restorative, or “easy” style of yoga. Far from it!
Learn why Yin is so crucial in helping you break through your physical barriers, how Yin educates the body about the subtle energy inside, and what makes Yin Yoga so transformative to any physical or yoga practice.
In this training you will learn more than just the history and philosophy behind this modern practice (which is based on ancient martial arts principles):
- Discover what is the “Yin Principle” and how to apply it to daily life and practice.
- Meridian theory and how it relates to Western Anatomy.
- The power of correct sequencing – how to build sequences for hips, knees and low back.
- The beauty of spiritual humour and how to weave it into your practice.
Gabe has been teaching Yin Yoga since 2000 and is heavily influenced by both Paul Grilley and Paulie Zink, though his years with Thai Massage have provided him with the insight into the deeper results that happen when working the connective tissue. Gabe shares Thai Massage principles in how they enhance appreciation of Yin Yoga.
Gabe’s Book: ‘How Yin Yoga Healed My Student’s Knee’ shares how Gabe’s guidance helped his student recover from a knee injury. The student who was a massage therapist had other ideas about why the pain was happening, and Gabe’s suggestion that the root of the pain was elsewhere both surprised the student, yet she decided to explore Gabe’s ideas. Together they wrote the book to highlight the importance of Yin, and the power of correct sequencing.
