The Power in Passive

A 30 hour foundational training on yin yoga and yin energy

January 20-22nd and February 24-26th, 2023

Your yoga practice has sacred value. It’s the space where you feel most whole + complete - and you want to make this practice & feeling accessible to others, or gain more understanding to guide you on your own mat. 

Join us for a 2-Weekend Format that offers a yin immersion to students and certification to teachers...

DOES THIS SOUND LIKE YOU?

You have always gravitated toward the stillness of yoga and feel a great affinity for yin and restorative practices.  Maybe you’ve been dabbling in workshops and retreats to deepen your practice, or, you’ve even taken a full teacher training.  You’ve gained something every time you unroll your mat but you’re hungry for more.  You want to go deeper into the esoteric qualities of stillness and pass the wisdom you’ve found within yourself through your practice on to others in a way that is clear and succinct.

  • You’ve practiced yoga for a long time and are struggling with injury or emotional pain you cannot heal (and you want to gain an understanding of anatomy, alignment, physiology or dig into the psychological shifts that occur on the mat so that you heal yourself and grow stronger)

  • You took a teacher training but haven’t put it to work and feel re-inspired (but you want to teach in a way that is simple, clear, and can impact your students the way yoga has impacted you)

  • You are teaching already, but your training didn’t cover everything you think you need (and you want to add depth to your classes by understanding the science behind the practice and learning ways to integrate science into the soul) 

  • You consider yourself a “yin aficionado” but have never studied the practice in depth.  You feel called to learn more about Chinese Medicine and the practice of yin whether to integrate into your own home practice or to integrate into your teachings.

2T_A9590.jpg

For Yin-Lovers, Students and to deepen a personal practice

You’ll attend our first weekend of training where we focus on the embodied experience of yin and take time to breakdown the concepts of this practice.  You’ll get hands on guidance for making the shapes more approachable for you. Through conversation we’ll learn from each other and be able to refine our own approach to yin on our mat.

If you’re a yoga teacher or are interested in taking a full teacher training, you’ll attend both weekends of our immersion.  In our second weekend we work through more detailed aspects of yin including breath work, methods for teaching, and provide real time mentorship as you establish your voice as a teacher.

ABOUT YOUR GUIDE

Annelise_Atlanta_Yogi_SacredThread_2019_31_edited.jpg

With a deep respect for the power behind "contentment" ~ I love exploring the passive energy of yin.  I am a 20+ year student of yoga who first fell in love with athletic styles of practice.  It wasn't under I had burned off my youthful energy that yin surfaced and became appealing to me. 

 

I have been practicing since 2001 and teaching since 2004.  I hold a 500hr certification from Laughing Lotus NYC with a 100HRs of training in yin and energy work.  I am also working toward a 300HR with Yoga Medicine.  These two programs touch on the opposite spectrums of "what I love about yoga" --- it's innate ability to heal and connect us to our physical body and it's ancient wisdom of what's beyond the physical body.  

 

While yoga has a deep, history - yin is a relatively new application of yoga asana.  I began writing this program based on a deep need to explore the foundations of yin through the lens of western medicine and eastern philosophy and to fortify teachers who love sharing the practice want to expand their knowledge of Chinese medicine and the foundations of the nervous system.
