PRICING SCHEDULE

Melissa Christensen has been teaching yin yoga for over a decade. Having studied under all the founders of this practice, Bernie Clark, Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley (and his senior teachers), she brings a wealth of knowledge and understanding of this transformative practice. She has been sharing this knowledge in weekend trainings since 2015, training over 350 students and teachers across the US and Canada. You can find more information about her on her website, www.yoginimelissac.com.

 

During this weekend, we’ll focus on this rapidly growing style of yoga called Yin Yoga. Working from the “yinside” out, we will explore the main postures of yin yoga, the benefits of this style of practice, and basic anatomy necessary to understand how different bodies create different shapes. You'll be introduced to Paul Grilley's "Functional Approach to Yoga" and how it works with the teachings of yin.

 

This training is open to both current and aspiring yoga teachers, as well as enthusiastic students who wish to spend the weekend immersed in all things Yin. You’ll leave this weekend with the foundation and ability to guide yourself and your students safely and effectively into a wide variety of yin poses. (This course also qualifies for 15 hours of CE credit with Yoga Alliance for registered yoga teachers.)
