Yin Yoga and Storytelling – Module 3
with Biff Mithoefer, E-RYT 500
December 1 - 6, 2019
Join Biff Mithoeffer, author of The Yin Yoga Kit, for a Yin Yoga training that explores the impact of storytelling on our lives.
Storytelling is the most ancient of the healing arts. Stories remind us that our lives ebb and flow. We move between our youth stories that teach us to triumph over obstacles, our mid-life stories that help us to transform things in life that no longer serve us, and our elder stories that teach us transcendence and acceptance. Understanding how our lives move through life’s bigger story can help us recognize what stories to let go and what stories to nourish.
By putting ourselves in Yin postures and accessing our deep connective tissue we begin to connect with our stories on a very deep level. Some of these stories are healing and can be embraced, and some of the stories no longer serve us and can be transformed. When we understand the role storytelling can have in our lives, we can learn to really listen to our own stories and respect them for what they can teach us.
This training is a stand-alone training and is open to any dedicated Yoga students and teachers who are interested in deepening their practice or teaching. If you haven’t studied with Biff before and plan on coming to the third module only, we ask that you read The Yin Yoga Kit and familiarize yourself with the basic concepts of Yin Yoga.
If you’d like to deepen your understanding of Yin Yoga before the start of this program, join Biff for Introduction to Yin Yoga, August 30–September 1, 2019, and Yin Yoga Training – Module 2, September 1–6, 2019.
