Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Biff Mithoefer: Taoism, Anatomy and Sequencing
1st - 6th June 2017
TAOISM, ANATOMY & SEQUENCING
A Yin Yoga Teacher Training
Yin Yoga uses gentle long held postures practiced with an attitude of compassionate acceptance to awaken the more Yin parts of our physical, emotional and spiritual selves.
This Training, formally known as Level 1, is a stand alone course. In this 6-day training we will look at how this practice, with its ancient yogic roots, can affect our physical, energetic and emotional bodies. Through this understanding we will explore ways to lead a Yin class, and to incorporate Yin postures and philosophy into any practice.
The training includes:
• Taoist philosophy
• The Yin practice of non-striving and how it influences our lives and our teaching
• The movement of Qi or Prana in the body, and how it can be affected by Yin practice.
• Anatomy and the understanding of our own natural pattern (li)
• Understanding the postures and sequencing a Yin class
• What it means to hold a safe, sacred space for a Yin practice
The training is suitable for teachers and dedicated practitioners. You don’t need to be a teacher or even experienced in Yin, just come with an open heart and a willing mind.
Participants will receive a certificate of completion in a 50 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training.
The syllabuses for both trainings have been submitted to Yoga Alliance through certain Yoga Schools and are part of their 500 hour Teacher Trainings.

I was born at 1970 in Greece.
I teach many different kinds of Yoga, Chi Kong, Thai Yoga Massage and Meditation. I assist my teacher Krisnataki in Thai Yoga Massage seminars and Biff Mithoefer in Yin Yoga trainings in Greece and around the world.
My teachings is a combination of the knowledge and the experiences of my life, integrating aspects of contemporary dance, chi kong, and the wisdom of the native traditions.
For four years I cooperated with the N.G.O. “Child Care Foundation” in Uganda.
For me yoga is the best way to live a mindful life, to experience every moment in a sacred manner and as a celebration.
I have traveled to many parts of the world. I feel that every step that we make on this earth is a sacred pilgrimage to the miracle of life itself.
