Creating and guiding a classroom space of quiet and introspection through Yin Yoga and meditation is essential “medicine” for our students. As yoga teachers, fostering meditative focus and awareness is crucial for our students in developing a committed yoga practice. Additionally, Yin yoga and meditation provide not only an important balance to our active, multifaceted and often fragmented day to day lives; these gentle practices can also be a continual source of insight, rejuvenation and compassion.

In this training intensive, we will cover the foundations and technique of Yin yoga: the differences between and relationship of Yin and Yang (active Hatha) yoga practices, our meridian and organ systems and the relationship to our connective tissue, Yin yoga pose technique and benefits, with pose modifications & alternatives for contraindications and injuries. We will also delve into developing and deepening your meditation practice, with an emphasis on how to share these techniques with others. Each training day will combine lecture with a Yin Yoga practice (workshops open to drop-ins), meditation, and time for questions.

Heather Tiddens teaches yoga and leads ceremony to empower people in embodying their most authentic selves. Her teaching is grounded in her training and studies integrating Yin and Yang (active Hatha) styles of yoga, hands-on healing modalities, mindfulness practices and indigenous ceremony ways. Heather, E-RYT500, has been teaching yoga full time since 1998. She has maintained a consistent and evolving personal practice since 1996. She has trained extensively, studying with a variety of teachers including Erich Schiffmann, Lisa Walford, Ana Forrest and Sarah Powers. From 1998-2004, Heather completed a personal teaching apprenticeship with Ana Forrest and trained teachers as a faculty member in the Forrest Yoga teacher training courses. Since 2004, Heather has expanded the focus of her practice and training to include Yin Yoga and meditation practices.

She continues to train teachers as a faculty member for both 200hr and 500hr Yoga Alliance Registered Yoga Schools. Her trainings specialize in the practical aspects of teaching (teaching methodology, teaching techniques, hands-on assists and working with injury & health conditions), personal growth as teachers, Yin & Yang (active Hatha) Yoga, as well as programs designed to fit individual yoga studios teacher training needs. Heather's vision for each of us, both as teachers and students, is to create a healthy home for our spirit; to walk our life's path with strength, openness and grace. www.heathertiddesyoga.com.
