Expand your Yoga Practise with Chinese Medicine 

Chinese Medicine for Yin Yoga is a theory based course, that begins with a broad overview of Traditional Chinese Medicine, and how this system of health approaches the body diagnostically.

The course covers each Zang/Fu (Yin/Yang) organ system and respective meridian system in depth. From a teaching perspective, yin yoga postures and sequences are suggested as templates in which to bring this information into your teaching to provide a holistic framework for your students.

As we cover each major organ/meridian system, together we will be looking at the signs and symptoms that manifest in the body when this organ system is out of balance. We will also look at the elemental and energetic functions of that system. When does that element shine during the seasons of the year, what foods support each organ, what emotions are stored or released when that organ is out of harmony, as well as the specific pathway of the meridian that flows through that organ network.

It is not the intention to take this information and provide diagnoses to future yin yoga students, that is reserved for practicing clinicians. This online Yin Yoga Teacher Training is specifically intended to enrich your understanding of how and what the body needs to stay healthy and harmonious with the seasons, and to have this information to draw from when you are inspiring your students to take care of their bodies and minds.
