The Yin Yoga Link

In recent years and with the emergence of Yin, and the new Yang Yoga, there has been a surge of Chinese Medicine information which could be giving misleading information about the healing properties of certain forms of yoga, and which seem to differ from one school to another.

As a result, many Yoga Therapy trainees, yoga teachers, and their students are confused about these new approaches and their claims based on Chinese principles.

Chinese Medicine Foundation

If we wish to teach and care for our students in a safe, respectful manner, it is important to obtain clear, science-based knowledge of the basis of Chinese Medicine, so we can apply these principles in our practice and teachings without causing harm.

Well sourced knowledge and safe professional practice are the main reasons behind the launch of this new course.

We hope that with this module we will be able to give our students a strong platform to feel confident in themselves and when teaching others.
