Yin Yoga & Chinese Medicine 25 hours Module

Next year the Arboga Yin Yoga Academy will be hosting a workshop with Marieke Vliegen, an internationally experienced yin yoga teacher trainer with special knowledge in Chinese Medicine. The training will take place at Jädersbruks Herrgård between August 18-21, 2021.

In Yin Yoga, postures are held for longer periods of time to stimulate the energy flow in the body. It’s a practice focused on cultivating stillness and helps us to turn ourselves more inward while stimulating the connective tissues, fascia and joints, in the body. Especially in our daily life, a lot of our activities are yang in nature and have a ‘go for it’ attitude. Engaging in yin activities helps our body and mind to find the necessary balance between doing and observing – being. We need both aspects, yin and yang, in our lives in order to feel healthy. According to Chinese Medicine, there are energy channels running through the body, meridians. In order to feel healthy and happy, the energy needs to flow smoothly through these meridians. A Yin Yoga practice can help to stimulate this energy flow so that the physical body can feel at ease, inviting the mind and emotional body to follow. In this 25 hour Yin Yoga and Chinese Medicine Module we will dive into the world of yin yoga and the holistic view of Chinese Medicine.

This course will introduce you to the wisdom of Chinese Medicine and how to integrate this into your Yin Yoga practice & teachings.

You will learn about:

  • Yin Yang Theory
  • The history of Chinese Medicine
  • The Meridians in the body
  • Meridians and the Emotions
  • Chinese Medicine lifestyle and Diet
  • The Five element theory
  • The Meridian Clock
  • The different treatments in Chinese Medicine
  • Meridian Nidra
  • Guasha treatment

There will be a combination of lectures, practice and self-study.
