This foundational training will teach you to safely and effectively guide students in the practice of yin yoga.  We will explore the archetypal pose families in depth --- learning to analyze what is going on in terms of muscles and joints in each pose, and, importantly, in each individual's body.  We will also explore beyond the physical to energetic theories and to the level of mind and emotions, learning to take a personalized, mindful and holistic approach to the practice.

LETA LAVIGNE (E-RYT 500) is founder of yogaROCKS studios and one of Finland's senior yin yoga teachers. She has been greatly influenced by studies with Yin Yoga pioneer Paul Grilley over the last decade of teaching. As a devoted Grilley student, she teaches yin with a functional approach rather than relying on alignment rules based on how a pose should look. 

A functional approach stresses the “why” as much as the “how,” and encourages students to customize their practice for their unique body. It builds confidence in the individual to proceed on the yogic path verified by their own experience, and acts as a platform from which a teacher can use her artistry to facilitate greater presence/awareness/healing/peace.

As an experienced teacher trainer who still teaches full time herself, Leta infuses her trainings with a wealth of practical experience and a love of helping new teachers identify and develop their unique strengths.

This program is open to anyone who wishes to dive deeper into the practice and offering of yin yoga....current teachers who wish to broaden their skill set (yes! this program can be counted as Yoga Alliance continuing education hours) or dedicated practitioners who want "more" but may not be sure about teaching yet.
This 50 hour module is also a requirement for yogaROCKS 200 hour certification program -- if you are interested in the joining full program, please contact Leta for more information.

"Hyvät ystävät - jos harkitsette Yin-joogan syventävää koulutusta, suosittelen tosi lämpimästi Leta-An LaVignen funktionaalisen lähestymistavan kurssia. Hinta-laatusuhde on huikea ja kurssin anti on 100% käyttökelpoista opetuksessa. Olen tosi tyytyväinen ♥"
- Nina Pyykkönen 

"Leta on ihanan lempeä ja ammattitaitoinen opettaja. Asioita kerrattiin paljon ja lähestyttiin eri näkökulmista mikä teki opiskelusta mielekästä ja asiat jäi hyvin mieleen. Sain erinomaiset eväät Yin-joogan ohjaamiseen!" - Outi Heiniö
