Description :

How does the ancient wisdom of yoga philosophy & spiritual inquiry translate tangibly into our practice of modern yoga asana?

 As we unravel that which is repressed and stuck in our bodymind, what are the practical tools to help us be with what arises and liberate us from suffering to Self Realization? What is the path to ‘awakening’ really all about?

 In this 100-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training , we meet these inquiries directly, drawing from the combined wisdom of traditional Hatha Yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine & Taoist Five Element Meridian Theory, and the Mindfulness Meditation practices of Tibetan Buddhism.

 ·      Learn how to release the deep tissue/ fascial trains of the body and create increased fluidity, suppleness & flexibility, & nourished healthy joints .

·      Learn how to influence the chi flow through the 12 primary meridian pathways, recognised by traditional chinese medicine, fueling the 12 main organ systems with life force, influencing organ health &  optimizing physical vitality.

·      Learn how your body, mind & spirit are connected via these energy pathways, and discover how to meet and align all dimensions of your being directly in your practice, influencing not only physical but mental, emotional & spiritual health.

.      Learn the specific therapeutic benefits of each yin asana & how to most effectively practice, sequence & teach classes for each of the organ systems.  

·      Learn practical mindfulness tools to meet the internal and external challenges of life, as gateways for transformation and awakening. 

 This 2-week immersion offers a holistic map and practical pathway for potentialising freedom and liberation within ourselves, and in turn, assists the development of direct teaching tools to support and guide our students.

Tina Nance

Tina Nance has been practicing Yoga for over 19 years and teaching yoga & women's work around the globe since 2003, in classes, workshops, retreats and yoga teacher trainings.

Tina is trained in both Classical Indian Yoga &  Chinese Taoist Yoga, & specialises in Yin Yoga & Yoga Therapy.

Tina is deeply passionate about creating opportunities for people of all backgrounds to connect directly & experientially with their body-mind and Spirit via the Yogic Arts, & is the founder of TNYT Yoga Therapy; a fusion of Indian Hatha Yoga & the 5 Element Meridian System of Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Tina works within the understanding that many of the contractions of the body-mind, are a manifestation of an identification with thoughts and behaviors that are misaligned with the truth of who we are.  Tina's yoga is therefore focused on consciously unraveling our body-mind's contractions with guided awareness. Cultivating the art of deep presence, focused awareness & conscious breath within each asana, exploring all eight limbs of yoga simultaneously, on the mat. Re-establishing health and harmony by un-obstructing the flow of prana through the body's energy channels, while connecting to our innate essence as loving presence, containing & embracing all that arises . Inviting Integration of body, mind & Spirit.

In recent years Tina has specialised in Yin Yoga & Mindfulness, and Yoga Therapy for Women's Wellness,  travelling and teaching throughout Australia, Europe and Asia.

Tina is currently a resident yoga teacher & teacher trainer at The Yoga Barn in Bali, Indonesia.
