Acquiring an intellectual understanding of the rich diversity of Yoga and Buddhism inspires one’s dedication to the path of awakening; it also fosters a clear level of communication and discussion with others.
Students are required to read the books and view the DVD assigned for this training before they arrive. Readings from these books and viewing of the DVD are an integral part of the training so please order the materials upon registration of the course so you have ample time to read/view them before the training begins.
Outside reading prior to and during the course will be required to enrich one’s overall understanding.
A teacher-training manual will be handed out on the first day of class.
To be eligible to receive the certificate, you will also be asked to write a 2-3 page paper on the purpose and methods of Yin yoga upon completion of the course for assessment.
