A Comprehensive Yin Yoga Course

In yin yoga there is time…lots of time: time to explore sensations, time to learn the appropriate depth for you in each posture, time to develop the habits of attending, noticing, and making appropriate decisions. This is one reason that yin yoga is so beneficial; you are provided time to get to know your body, what it needs, and what it does not need. Yin yoga explores the edges where resistance arises. This resistance may be physical, but there are other edges to become aware of as well—emotional and psychological edges are also to be noticed and honored.

On a physical level, yin yoga targets and affects our deepest layers: the connective tissues, which include our fascia, ligaments, joints, cartilage, and bones. All tissues need exercise to regain and maintain optimal health, and these deeper tissues are no exception. But, to safely exercise the deeper, yin-like tissues of our body we need to use yin-like stresses.

In this course you'll receive eight yin yoga practices, and you'll learn:

  • The three principles of the yin yoga practice
  • How to adopt a functional approach to your yoga practice as opposed to an aesthetic approach
  • How to avoid fragility and develop anti-fragility
  • How to stimulate energy flow and remove blockages
  • To develop mindfulness and hone your ability to attend

This course is for:

  • Total yoga beginners
  • Experienced yin practitioners
  • Seasoned yogis who are new to yin yoga
  • Yoga teachers looking for inspiration
  • Anyone who wants more mobility, energy, and to know their body better

Join Bernie Clark, leading yin yoga teacher and author of The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga, for an in-depth course that will transform your practice. Once the course is live, take it at your own pace. You can even download all the modules and practice anytime, anywhere.

What Is Yin Yoga?

Meet the Presenter

Bernie Clark

Bernie has been traveling the yogic path for over 35 years, starting with a daily meditation practice that he established in his mid-twenties, in order to deal with stress in his business career. In his early forties, he was introduced into the physical practices of yoga through Hatha yoga, which assisted him greatly in his meditation practice. He has a degree in science and spent 30 years as a senior executive in the high tech, space industry, but he also continued to feed his intense curiosity about psychology, mythology, anatomy and philosophy, which culminated in his writing several books about yoga, mythology and anatomy. Today, Bernie is a yoga teacher and edutainer offering classes, teacher trainings and workshops in Vancouver, Canada.
