Yin & Restorative Immersion
This course is an immersive dive into the world of Yin yoga as taught by Tucker Shelton, M.A., E-RYT 500, YACEP, KYM 100. Tucker's Yin classes blend traditional Yin with Restorative Yoga, Myofascial Release, guided meditation, Chakra theory, Thai Yoga Massage, and more.
This training will give attendees a deep understanding of Tucker's approach to teaching Yin, making ethical and juicy adjustments, guiding meditations, and leading breathwork. It will provide those who wish to teach Yin with everything they need to get started on strong footing.
An incredibly nourishing experience for all, this weekend is also just a great way to spoil yourself and spend time with Tucker and bond with other Yin enthusiasts.
With four Yin classes (open to the public), there is a chance to immerse yourself in the practices, and to try your hand at adjusting students in the poses.
During lecture hours, Tucker will discuss the history, theory, and philosophy behind Yin and Restorative Yoga as well as the many other traditions he pulls from to weave his classes together. You will learn how to sequence poses as well as how to modify for and work with the many bodies you will encounter as a teacher.
