Yin Meets Yang: Cultivating Strength, Mobility and Ease
March 06 –
March 08, 2020
Yin and Yang forms of Yoga are often differentiated with respect to movement speed, targeted tissues, and the length of time poses are held. But, these ancient Chinese concepts are terms based on relativity that apply to all phenomenon, and in fact, can be applied to our movement practice in a number of creative ways to cultivate greater joint integrity and tissue balance.
Join international teacher trainer and Samdhana Yoga founder, Alicia Cheung, for her integral anatomy and movement series: “Yin Meets Yang: Cultivating Strength, Mobility and Ease”. She will take you on a journey to explore creative and challenging movement in less traditional ways to increase mindfulness, reduce common overuse injuries as seen in asana, enhance flexibility, active mobility, strength, neurological control, and ultimately, surrender.
Her lecture series will be based on the latest, evidence-based findings in movement research, functional anatomy, pain science and fascial health. You will develop new ways of improving joint integrity, neuromuscular function, reducing pain, and narrowing the gap between passive flexibility and active mobility, all of which will enhance your current asana practice. Open to practitioners wanting to deepen their practice, and for teachers, you will also cultivate a thinking process that will inspire creativity in your sequencing.

Attending the 200 hour yoga teacher training is definitely one of the most amazing and life-changing experiences for me, also the most challenging experience I have ever had. As an ESL student, I had a hard time studying philosophy and anatomy. It was like learning new languages for me! But thanks to my teachers Alicia and Oliver, who are so supportive, encouraging and passionate about their students, they made sure I was up to where I needed to be every week. Alicia would use her spare time on her day off to review the classes with me, and make sure I knew what I needed to know. Oliver would answer any questions I had after class. I knew I was in the right place then. The place we stayed for 5 weeks, Prana Dewi was just perfect for the training. Remote, quiet and beautiful. I was so excited to be there because I grew up in Tokyo and I had never been to a place like that before. I enjoyed doing homework by the pool, walking through the rice fields with my bare feet and gazing at the stars at night. I am so grateful for this experience with Alicia and Oliver. Before I went to Bali, I did not think I would be ready to teach by the end of the training…but I am! I left with confidence and felt stronger than ever. And this, I could not have done without them. I highly recommend this training to anyone who is interested in YTT…even if English is your second language. It is challenging but well worth it. You will be amazed how much you can grow.
