Yin yoga is a complementary and synergic practice to the most dynamic yoga practices. It brings back the balance and the attention to the self. In Yin yoga the positions are mainly on the ground, the prerogative is the maintenance of the same position for several minutes, to allow our body to come into contact with the fascia, tendons, and joints, to do this, being a deep practice, it needs time. Yin yoga brings enormous benefit in strengthening the joints, while from an energetic point of view, it allows the Qi and Prana to flow through the whole body, eliminating the blocks, bringing a free flow of prana and qi through the meridians (blocks deriving from the emotions connected to them), moreover, being a static and introspective practice, it allows to recontact one’s own self, to bring one’s emotions into balance and to take the necessary time to listen to one’s body, with sweetness and care. This practice allows the individual to take a deep listening to his emotions, let them flow and prepare for a deep meditation.

In this Teacher training, we will deal with the extraordinary meridians, or the meridians responsible for the rebalancing of the Qi (or prana, of our vital energy) within the body. These meridians are concerned with absorbing excess Qi and integrating our defensive energy and ancestral energies when they are deficient.

The extraordinary channels and viscera are linked to our origin, to our birth, to what we inherit from our parents and our karma, from our energetic path, and allow our vital essence, our nutritive energy and the defensive energy to circulate inside our body, eliminating the blocks that are at the origin of diseases, according to Traditional Chinese Medicine.

The Extraordinary Channels and Viscera play a fundamental role of balance of the yin and the yang and of all the energies (defensive and ancestral) of the body.

They are related to organs considered relevant in all Western and Eastern philosophies (Brain, Marrow, Bones, Blood vessels, Biliary Bladder, Uterus) Remember that Biliary Bladder is also an ordinary Viscera and therefore has a double function ).

  • Theory of the main energies in classical yoga and their synergies

  • Philosophical/practical analogies and synergies in the philosophy of traditional yoga
