Yin Yoga Teacher Training Certification

50-Hour Course
with Master Paulie Zink

Session THREE: July 18 - 24, 2020

Our bodies are mostly water. Our natural state is to move fluidly like water and adapt to our environment. When I do yoga I want to be like water pouring from a vessel.
—Paulie Zink

This is the only official Yin Yoga Teacher Certification Course authorized by The Yin Yoga Institute and taught by the founding master of Yin Yoga, Paulie Zink. Learn to teach the art of Yin Yoga as it is intended to be taught.

Yin Yoga was developed by Master Zink from the Taoist spiritual traditions and health practices of ancient China. In Taoist philosophy, the entire universe is regarded as a living organism imbued with life force. Being in harmony with the flow of this energy in nature is the essence of Taoist attitude. The primary purpose of Yin Yoga is to restore and enliven our innate ability to move with fluidity, power, and grace.
Participants learn to open to their intuitive hearts, to discover the individual expression of the artist within, to awaken the spontaneous and playful spirit, and to transcend the boundaries of the analytical mind in order to advance beyond techniques for doing yoga into cultivating a way of being yoga, of living it in our day-to-day lives, and sharing these gifts with the lives of those we touch.

Session three will cover:

  • How to become attuned to your own yoga flow; how to create
    posture flow sequences for students
  • Level 2 and 3 Yin and Yang yoga postures
  • Advanced alchemy using birthing and yielding cycles with
    accompanying postures
  • The relationship of the organs, emotions, and the five elements
  • Medical chi kung standing forms of exercises
  • Alchemical meditations for cultivating elemental energetic properties
  • Practice teaching with evaluation and guidance from Paulie to enhance
    your teaching efficacy
  • Demonstrative exam of proficiency in content from course
    sessions 1 and 2 (no written exam).
