Yin Yoga and Storytelling – Module 3
with Biff Mithoefer, E-RYT 500
November 29 - December 4, 2020
Join Biff Mithoefer, author of The Yin Yoga Kit, for a Yin Yoga training that explores the impact of storytelling on your life.
Storytelling is the most ancient of the healing arts. Stories remind us that our lives ebb and flow. Understanding how your life moves through the universe’s bigger story can help you recognize what stories to let go of and what stories to nourish.
By putting yourself in Yin postures and accessing your deep connective tissue, you will begin to connect with your stories on a very deep level. Some of these stories are healing and can be embraced, while some no longer serve you and can be transformed. When you understand the role storytelling can have in your life, you can learn to genuinely listen to your own stories and respect them for what they can teach you.
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.
Continuing Education (CE) Opportunities
The training will consist of approximately 45 contact hours. In order to receive a certificate of completion, each student will be asked to complete an additional 5 hours of independent study during the 30 days following the training. After completing the independent study, each student will communicate their experience to Biff by mail or email. Your communication won’t be judged or graded, and each participant will receive a certificate of completion for 50 hours of Yin Yoga teacher training.
- Yoga Alliance (YA): Approximately 45 contact hours. You can input your contact hours using your YA login information.
Integral Yoga Teachers Association (IYTA) can provide you a CE certificate with your program’s total contact hours for a $10 fee (free for IYTA members.) For more information, email [email protected].
