The Three Treasures
Jing, Qi, & Shen
May our study be enlightening...
Yin Yoga is so much more than asana – it's also a platform for growth and transformation. If we want to help our students build up the inner resources to meet life's challenges, then we have to share the practices that train them up.
According to the Taoists, Qi originates from the Tao and permeates all manifest things. A life form is comprised of three essential types of Qi, and each as a unique roll to play in our health and longevity.
In this workshop, you'll learn how our lifestyle enhances or depletes these energies and how Yin Yoga can affect them. You'll learn how to accurately talk about Qi and weave these essential teachings into your classes.
In this 2.75hr online workshop, we'll explore the following:
- What is Qi and where does it come from?
- The three main levels of Qi: Jing (Essence), Qi (Energy), and Shen (Spirit)
- How these energies relate to one another and influence our health and wellbeing
- How to accurately talk about Qi and how Yin Yoga affects it in your classes
- How to bring these concepts into your sequences and classroom dialogue
