The Healing Yin Yoga Teacher Training Bali is a powerful way to transform and connect with yourself. The last few years as a Yoga Teacher Trainer I have explored the Yoga practice primarily for one intention – that is healing. The reason I became so interested with healing is simple. I needed to heal myself. Seven years ago I was suffering with severe pain in my body! Even though I practiced Yoga regularly, I used to live with spinal pain, neck pain, pain in my left hip. I was also chronically fatigued for a while. And I used to have really poor digestion. Wanting to go deeper and learn how to heal all of this and much more was what attracted me to my healing journey.

I wanted to be healthy. Not just healthy physically, but in every way. I wanted to enjoy my life to the fullest. I wanted flow in my relationships, flow in my education and travel, and flow in my finances. But all the good food and exercise did not give me that. There was something much deeper I need to release and let go of.
Let me be completely honest, the process of healing took serval years. I had a lot to work on! But the key thing that over time allowed me to shift into health, in all aspects of life, was letting go of the mental-emotional-energetic blocks I was holding on to in my body. Yin Yoga is a very helpful tool for doing this.
First lets describe in simple words what Yin Yoga is. Yin Yoga is a style of yoga that opens up the connective tissues of the body called the fascia. The fascia is also where the acupuncture meridians are. By holding the poses passively for 2-5 minutes. We can clear and release energy blocks in the meridians. This helps to build and regulate the flow of energy (life force) in the body. Which leads to deep health and balance.
Some of the benefits of Yin yoga are:
-Calming and balancing
-Increases mobility in the body, especially the hips
-Lowering stress levels
-Relief of migraines

The practice of Yin Yoga trains us in the habit of slowing down, paying attention and listening. Listening to our body, and letting go of our mind. Yin goes hand in hand with the practice of awareness, feeling deeply into the body, and helps to fine-tune the various skills that bring us back to the here and now.
In my personal experience I gained great benefits from Yin Yoga because it helped me really clear the mental-emotional-energetic blocks I was holding on to in my body. I was able to let my energy flow through my body. I got really connected to my body and my breath through integrating this into my morning routine. It created more balance and freedom throughout the day. And over time I saw the pain in my body reduce more and more. Nowadays I can happily say that I am pain free. But even more than that my life has significantly shifted in all areas.
I would explain the way that Yin Yoga helps us shift our life off the mat is all about the awareness we develop during the practice. When we practice Yin Yoga regularly in a safe environment it can easily transfer off the mat. When we are stuck in our everyday drama (worry, rumination, frustration), we can bring the same kind of attention to the sensations in our body. In this way we become awake, and observe feelings and reactions. This awareness in our body gives us the power to choose to stay present rather than run away and fall into habits and unconscious patterns. Things can release only when we have acknowledged them and we accept them fully as they are. With that kind of quality of presence in our body and in our life things will eventually heal and life shifts into a state of flow and balance.
