What’s on offer urban training style?

Join again in 2020 for 5 days of teacher training urban-style with Melanie McLaughlin for her inspiring 50 hour Yin Teacher Training program. We will slip off the radar for a 5 days of yin “chill-pill”. Exploring our ‘Yin-sides’ of deep immersion into the other side of the yoga coin. We are keeping it small and intimate and you will be fully versed in the art of teaching yin when you are finished.

Synergy Yoga and Pilates Presents:

Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Melanie McLaughlin
“There is a yin and yang to everything in the universe. They are like two sides to the same coin, one cannot exist without the other and they compliment each other”

Join us for this unique opportunity to explore your “yin-side” over a 5-day Urban Retreat.  This course is open to those who are either already 200-hour qualified yoga teachers, and who want to deepen their knowledge and practice of Yin yoga.  There by cultivating teaching skills that will allow them to facilitate this practice for their students, or dedicated students wanting to dive in and learn more for their own personal practice and enjoyment.

Yin yoga is growing in popularity, largely in response to what has become a very “yang”-dominated yoga culture.  People are discovering the benefits of a quieter, more still practice – not just in their physical bodies, but also in their nervous and energy systems.

About Melanie

Mel has been passionate about a yin-style practice for over 11 years, through her own personal practice and self-study.  In 2012 Mel formalized her training with Paul Grilley through his 200-hour Teacher Training program in the USA. She recently revisited for ongoing training, and now shares this wealth of experience, insight and expertise through her very own Yoga Australia recognized 100-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training course.  Mel is accompanied by a highly qualified team of guest teachers in the fields of Anatomy and Physiology, Acupuncture, and Myofascial Therapies.

The course material you can look forward to will include:

  • A study of Yin asanas
  • An alternate look at anatomy and physiology for yoga
  • Explore the differences between a yin and yang practice
  • Yin sequencing and class themes
  • Pranayama and meditation in a Yin practice
  • Muscle meridian theory and related organs (courtesy of Dr Motoyama & Paul Grilley’s research)
  • The energy system and Chakras
  • Fascia research and its function and qualities relevant to YIN
  • The concept and importance of Chi/Qi
  • Teaching styles and methodologies in Yin yoga, including “partner yin” and “wall yin”

Jo Phee from Jo Phee Yin Yoga – Yinspiration | Teacher

“Synergy Yoga Pilates has been an excellent host to all my teacher trainings in Adelaide. They take care of all the promotions and registrations, on-site administrative and logistical support. Monique has been incredibly organised and attentive to student’s needs. So taking very good care of me each time I’m there. Adelaide is a beautiful city to visit and explore. I always look forward to return.”

Heather Agnew – Yoga Trinity | Teacher

“Synergy Yoga & Pilates has been hosting Yoga Trinity for the past 6 years as we share yoga teacher training programs in Adelaide and I would highly recommend Synergy as a place to practice, study, and teach yoga.  Because, we have shared  7 successful programs with Synergy during the past three years, with 2 more training’s upcoming in 2019/2020.

So I can certainly credit the success of these programs to the efforts of Monique and her team.  Monique has been a tremendous support throughout the hosting experience. Offering professional, organized, and creative hosting.  Including support, such as great pre-course marketing and administration. Being available onsite during courses to assist, and offering invaluable post-course guidance, care and community for graduates.  Synergy feels very much like a family, and it’s an honor to be a part of this dynamic, compassionate, and evolving yoga family in Adelaide. “
