Yin Yoga

Materials Included:

  • The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga (294 pages) is an in-depth look at the practice and benefits of Yin Yoga. All forms of yoga can provide benefits physically, emotionally, and mentally and Yin Yoga is similar, however Yin Yoga works the deeper levels of the body/heart/mind: the connective tissues of the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones and the energetic channels of the meridians, nerves and blood system. One big difference noticed by students of Yin Yoga is the long held, passive nature of the posture, which gives time for a deeper journey to unfold, a journey into the meditative aspects of yoga, a bridge to living life mindfully.

Inside The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga readers will find complete information on how to do the practice, including a deep look inside over two dozen Yin Yoga postures showing the benefit of the pose, how to get into and out of the pose, contraindications and warnings for those who may have trouble with particular aspects of the posture and other important information. Classes, or flows, are also provided that target specific areas of the body such as the hips, the lower back, the legs and the upper body as well as flows that help stimulate particular organs and energy centers. As important as how to practice Yin Yoga, are the benefits: the reader will find lots of information about why anyone would want to practice Yin Yoga. The benefits are explored in three main sections: the physiological benefits, the energetic benefits and the mental/emotional benefits. Within each section the philosophies of the East (India and China) are contrasted with the current science in the West.

  • Yin Yoga (Book) – An Individualized Approach to Balance, Health and Whole Self Well-Being (118 pages)
  • The Yin Yoga Kit (131 page book, 75-minute DVD and 15 cards) In The Yin Yoga Kit, Biff Mithoefer presents poses used in Yin Yoga and explains each posture’s benefits, including which chakras and meridians will be most positively affected. The individual posture cards included illustrate the poses, provide advanced and modified variations, and assist users in designing a personalized practice sequence. The 75-minute CD contains a sample-guided routine narrated by the author, with each pose presented on a separate track so listeners can rearrange them or shorten the routine as needed.
  • Yoga Posture Adjustments and Assisting Book
  • Anatomy of Yoga Book (Contains Step-by-Step instructions on archiving correct form and alignment in each pose. This book also contains colorful photos and illustrations of all asanas covered.)
  • The Language of Yoga Book (By Nicolai Bachman, a comprehensive Sanskrit course with two interactive audio CDs that help you with pronunciation. "The Language of Yoga," includes more than 200 Asanas with illustrated Yoga postures and 300 Sanskrit definitions.)

The Yin and Yang of Yoga: a Taoist Perspective The fundamental insight of the ancient Taoists (Chinese Yogis) is that on one level of awareness there are always opposites called Yin and Yang, but on a higher level of awareness these opposites are united in a single purpose called “Tao.”

When we are ambitious and energetic, the life force flows through our muscles, the Yang layer of the body. This is the essential attitude of Yang, the creative force without which there would never be anything new. When we are peaceful and contented, the life force flows through our skeletal system, the Yin layer of the body. This is the essential attitude of Yin, the quiet insight without which there would never be peace of mind. The Tao of health is to embrace, nourish and cultivate both of these essential layers of the body. Only by doing this do we find true balance.
A Taoist analysis of Yoga practice emphasizes the critical difference between Yin and Yang tissues of the body. Muscles and blood are Yang, connective tissues and joints are Yin. Yin and Yang tissues do not respond to training in the same way and a student’s practice becomes more effective when the difference is understood.

Balancing Yin and Yang Most forms of Yoga practiced today are Yang—they emphasize muscular movement and contraction. By contrast Yin Yoga targets the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Connective tissue responds best to gentle stress over a long period of time, so Yin postures are held for longer periods. This type of practice complements the more muscular styles of Yoga and is a great aid for learning to sit in meditation.

Many people find that a Yin Yoga practice has transformative effects on body and mind. The gentle but consistent stimulation to the connective tissues encourages long-term health and flexibility of the joints, recharges the energetic system of the body and naturally draws the mind inward into a relaxed, meditative state.

  • Meditation For Beginners and Yoga Relaxation DVD/CD Set (1 Hour 23 Minute DVD and 53 Minute CD)
  • Anatomy for Yoga DVD (Nearly 4 Hours of instructional material. This will help you to understand and manage Yoga safety issues, effectively, in your own classroom.)
  • Yin Yoga DVD with Kim Eng (146 minutes)

    Meditative Movements and Postures to Cultivate the Energy of “Allowing”

Most of our lives are directed by the energy of doing—known as yang in the Taoist tradition. To bring life into balance, we need to cultivate its opposite, yin, the energy of “allowing.” Now Kim Eng offers a powerful program of conscious movement to help us balance these forces and accept each moment just as it is. Join her on Presence Through Movement: Yin Yoga to learn postures and practices that take you into this state of presence.

Set in a serene garden, this video begins with gentle instruction on a variety of meditative poses including the Long-Legged Butterfly, Sleeping Swan, and Dragon. By inviting us to hold these postures and sink deeply into the inner body, Kim enables us to discover our “comfortable edge”—a process that can release deeply held traumas and bring about true stillness. Complete with both long and short practices inspired by Kim’s own awakening process as well as a variety of other traditions, this program helps us “be the space”—by allowing, accepting, and opening to whatever arises.

“By learning to move—and hold—our body with intention, we can begin to balance our inner and outer worlds,” teaches Kim. Suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners, Presence Through Movement: Yin Yoga is a portal to the beauty and serenity of the Now.

FIVE Special Bonuses (Valued at $221.95):

AT NO EXTRA CHARGE, you will receive all five of the following bonuses:

1. Our Yoga business starter manual: "How to Grow Your Own Successful Yoga Business." This comprehensive resource, valued at $147, contains all the vital information you need to start, run, and grow your own profitable Yoga business.

Most Yoga teacher training camps will teach you what you need to know to become a Certified Yoga Instructor, but won't say a word about how to operate your own business. Our Yoga business starter manual will reveal all the "behind the scenes" secrets that will put your Yoga practice on the fast track to success.

2. You'll also receive Aura Wellness Center's "Yogic Relaxation CD" a $15.95 value, for personal use and a handy learning tool. When you first listen to this CD, you will feel very relaxed. This is the initial purpose, but since you will be teaching guided relaxation and meditation, as part of your Yoga classes, you can also use this CD to improve your cueing skills.

After regular practice with this CD, you will also develop your own cueing techniques when guiding friends, family, and your students through a relaxation sequence or meditation.

3. Additionally, you'll get the 105 page Aura Hatha Yoga Teacher Training Manual in PDF (e-Book) format.

4. To round out your business knowledge, the 47 minute DVD "Yoga Business Secrets" is included. This information is valuable to a Yoga Teacher whether you decide to become a independent contractor or a studio owner.

5. Lastly, you'll also receive Yoga Marketing 101, a DVD that gives you enough marketing strategies to earn $50,000 to $100,000 per year. It's unfortunate that many excellent Yoga Teachers and Yoga Masters don't know how to market their Yoga studios. Instead of a happy and rewarding Yoga lifestyle, they scratch out an existence. You don't have to!

Dear Dr Jerard,

I wanted to thank you for all the help and support you've offered while I completed my Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training Course. The course content was excellent and covered a broad range of subjects, including the history and philosophy of Yoga, the asanas, alignment, modifications and also some practical advice on getting started as a Yoga Teacher. I had many questions over the course of my studies and really appreciated the swift, kind and detailed responses received from Dr Jerard. I put in a lot of hours and managed to complete my course in 6 months and have now almost completed my first series of Yoga classes here in Edinburgh, Scotland. I have felt prepared and able to teach from my first class (even with some beginners nerves!) and have really enjoyed putting what I've learned into practise. My students have asked if I'll offer a further series of classes which I hope to begin next month. I have learned so much about myself, and about Yoga, and feel such a sense of achievement. I would thoroughly recommend Aura Teacher Training products.

I will definitely be back to do a further course with you in the future!

Dear Paul,

I've enclosed a picture of myself (front row far left) and a group of very supportive friends, practicing sun salutations by my favorite lake on a chilly morning . This is the nucleus of fellow yogis and colleagues that were so encouraging during my Yin Yoga Teacher Certification Training from Aura Wellness Center.

After years of practicing many different forms of Yang Yoga, I decided to pursue teacher training in the Yin Yoga tradition. I'm a full time musician/piano teacher, and knew I could not leave my large piano studio for any length of time to become certified. I'm so grateful I happened upon your distance learning program through an Internet search . It was perfect for my situation, and was one of the best decisions I ever made.

The Yin Yoga Teacher Training is a 300 Hour, Platinum Level Course. The materials were extensive, interesting, and well laid out. I finished the course in 4 months, but likely could have done it in 3 if we hadn't run into the holidays . I truly can't imagine having a more thorough Yin training anywhere else . I did combine my Aura studies with onsite workshops ( when I could schedule it) closer to where I live, which was also very helpful .

I have set up shop in a classroom in my church...A modest beginning to be sure, but one of which I'm very grateful . The word is out that "Yin is In", and I have many new students emailing me daily to inquire about my
Classes . I'm very excited about the future of my studio ( the name of which is below ).

I thank you for your prompt, patient, and kind replies to every question I had , even when I was repeating myself. I've already purchased the Aura Wellness materials for the Meditation Certification, and will likely follow that up with a 3rd certification . The sky is the limit with Aura!!

Thank you so much for helping me make my dream become a reality.
