Course Description

woman practicing kind karma yin yoga

Kind Karma® Yin Yoga uses gentle long held postures – "shapes," with a compassionate, open-minded attitude of self-acceptance to awaken and free the yin parts of our physical, emotional, energetic, mental and spiritual selves.  Yin Yoga practice is perfect for anyone who wants to bring more freedom, flexibility, mobility or energy to their hips, pelvis, hamstrings, spine and shoulders.  Often, these areas of the body become stiff and less mobile because of aging, old injuries or chronic overuse.

This course, "Kind Karma® Yin Yoga Teacher Training: Replenish, Nourish and Expand your Three Treasures", is intended to provide students with a deeper understanding of a yin yoga practice through Jing, Qi and Shen – the essences of who we are, in Traditional Chinese medicine.  The study will be forged with direct yin yoga experience, training and practice.

This course combines yin yoga with meditation, breathing exercises, and the introduction to healing applications of sound therapy. Our yin yoga class sequences tailor the practice to target certain emotions, meridian, and the three treasures.

"Each practice of yin yoga offers you a unique window of opportunity to notice and listen to the messages of your emotions, feelings, body sensations, reactions and inner voice.  In such a beautiful and skillful way, yin yoga offers you the time, silence, stillness and space to listen to embrace and, ultimately, cherish your authentic self." – Dean Telano
