Teacher Training

with Tanya Popovich

Nov 9,10, 16, & 23,24
Swaha Yoga Center, Athens – Greece

We live very active, stressful lives filled with stimuli. Our nervous systems are constantly tensed. According to Chinese Taoist philosophy, this active quality is called yang. Even our yoga practices in the last few decades have become very yang. This is why Yin Yoga has become a very necessary practice that is gaining more and more demand across the world. Too much yang activity in our lives causes an imbalance in our physical, emotional and mental bodies, and this is where Yin Yoga comes in to bring about balance.

Yin Yoga combines teachings from Indian Hatha Yoga and Taoist Yin Yang philosophy. It is an antidote to our extremely active and yang daily lives. Wellbeing comes when the Yin and yang, the passive and the active, the calming and the stimulating are balanced.

This training is for Yoga Teachers that wish to incorporate Yin Yoga into their offerings, or for any Yoga Practicioner that wants to gain a greater knowledge of Yin Yoga practice and philosophy.
