"Yin Yoga meets the 5 Elements" Teacher Training, with Betty & Andreas / 02-08 June 2022 @ Sunshine House, Greece

This is a stand-alone Yin Yoga & The 5 Elements training with Betty Papadopoulou & Andreas Karousos at Sunshine House...

You don’t need to be a teacher or even experienced in Yin, just come with an open heart and a willing mind. If you are a yoga or/and a yin yoga teacher, student, or lover, this training will expand your knowledge and help you in gaining new tools and experiences.

About the Five Elements

The cycle is one of the most symbolic forms in all Cultures. As a shape, it shows no beginning, no end. One of these endless cycles
is the eternal movement of the Five Elements. Five “transformations” in every whole cycle.

In the day it is the switching between night and day, in the year it is the alternation of the seasons, in our heart it is the time-space between
the heart beats. In this very simple but comprehensive concept, one can see and admire the continuity of life, of every creature,
every system that we know till now, even if this happens on Earth or also to the eternal space of the Universe.

Truly, someone could describe and explain every phenomenon that humans can observe as a part or as a whole of a Five Elements cycle.
This theory, practically applied in life, stands on the base of the Chinese & Eastern Healing Arts.

Merging the wisdom that the Five Elements embrace with the spirit and the practical application of Yin Yoga,
you will see and experience how they come together in creative and holistic practice.

About Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga uses gentle long held postures practiced with an attitude of compassionate acceptance to awaken the more Yin aspects of ourselves.

Together we will dive deeper into experiencing the Physical, Emotional, Mental, Energy and Spiritual body of the Yin Yoga asana,
mainly through the lenses of Chinese Medicine & the 5 Elements.

Fascia Theory and Myofascia Release Techniques, Chi Gong, rituals and ceremonies inspired by Taoism, Buddhism, and the traditions of Indigenous American Indian and African people, will assist our experience and will expand our awareness of this new magical world.

Through this understanding, we will explore more creative ways to lead a Yin class and to incorporate Yin postures and philosophy into our lives and into any practice. Cultivating body awareness through mindful practices results in personal growth and real wisdom.
Our aim is to share with you a mindful experiential training process.

“Mastering others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power.” – Lao Tzu

Mastering thyself is neither a Yang or Yin attitude.

It’s an act of love.
