Yin Yoga Training Module 2

with Biff Mithoefer, E-RYT 500, Julia Kupke and Eric Archer

November 13 - 19, 2022

Immerse yourself in this Yin Yoga training to envision our journey as humans and teachers through the archetypes of Warrior, Healer, Teacher, and Visionary. Learn to hold space for your students, perceive energy, develop unique strengths, engage in intentional sharing, and through these archetypal figures, relate to the parts of ourselves that we all share.

This training includes:

  • The practice of holding space
  • Body and energy literacy: deepening our range of perception, learning to follow our inner teacher, and supporting others to do the same
  • Embodiment: grounding your teaching in your body
  • Collaboration and community: encouraging mutual support and peer learning, taking our practice into the world
  • Self-realization and creativity: exploring and developing our unique strengths and styles as teachers
  • Personal growth and mindfulness: identifying and addressing our blind spots and “growing edges” as teachers
  • The use of story, poetry, and metaphors to invite a deeper somatic experience

Since the beginning of humankind’s adventure here on Earth, indigenous societies throughout the world have sought guidance through their relationship with archetypal figures.

In this training course, you will explore the connection between these archetypes and the Taoist understanding of the relationship between Yin and Yang. As you look within this relationship of Yin and Yang, you can see how important the balance between your Yang Warrior nature and your Yin Healer nature, your Yin Teacher nature and your Yang Visionary nature, is for the equanimity of your students and yourself. You will use the tools of Yin Yoga, body meditation, and intentional sharing to help you experience these archetypes in yourself.

By opening to the wisdom of your own body, you will begin to feel where you may be out of balance. Does your strong Warrior nature lack the heart of the Healer? Does your heart’s path lack the power of the Warrior? As a teacher, are you open to your students finding their own path, or are you attached to the outcome of your teaching? Like the Visionary, can you see and tell the truth without blame or judgment, or are you wrapped too tightly in your own stories?

If you can’t stay for the week-long training, join Biff for the weekend workshop from November 11–13, 2022, Introduction to Yin Yoga.

Receive 10% off both programs’ tuition when registering for Introduction to Yin Yoga (Nov. 11–13, 2022) and Yin Yoga Training Module 2 (Nov. 13–19, 2022).

The discount of $115 will be reflected upon Module 2 registration.

Training Information

This training is a stand-alone training open to anyone who has taken Taoism, Anatomy, and Sequencing (Yin Yoga Module 1 Training), as well as to any dedicated Yoga students or teachers who are interested in deepening their practice. It 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.

To create and hold a safe space for peaceful acceptance is the privilege of the Yin teacher. In this 50-hour training, we’ll look at ways through which we can best support our students in their own journeys as we explore creative and collaborative approaches to teaching and learning.

Introduction to Yin Yoga or Module 1 Yin Teacher Training (Taoism, Anatomy, and Sequencing). If you haven’t studied with Biff before, please get a copy of The Yin Yoga Kit, familiarize yourself with the basic concepts, and do some of the practices in the book or CD.
