Yin Yoga Teacher Training: 30 hours with Jo Phee
Yin Yoga bliver mere og mere populært som supplement til vores travle livsstil. Der er så mange lag i Yin Yogaen, som jeg desværre ofte oplever går tabt. Derfor har Jo og jeg aftalt, at hun kommer til København for at øse ud af hendes enorme viden om Yin Yoga, anatomi og kinesisk medicin. Jo har studeret mere end et årti med både min lærer Sarah Powers og Paul Grilley, og de anbefaler hende begge. Sarah Powers har valgt at inkludere Jo's Yin Yoga Trainings som en del af hendes Insight Yoga Institut's program. Jo har nemlig styr på sit kram!
Denne teacher training er for både mænd og kvinder. Vil du fordybe dig i din yinpraksis og/eller blive en bedre Yin Yoga-underviser, så læs med her:

Jo is one of the first certified Yin Yoga Teacher in the world and is also a senior trainer in Yin Yoga teacher training programs. She first studied Yin Yoga with Sarah Powers a decade ago and continues to receive on-going teaching mentorship with Sarah, as well as regularly assisting her in her trainings. Jo is also the direct assistant of the founder of Yin Yoga, Paul Grilley and was personally mentored by Paul to teach his entire Yin Yoga training curriculum.
Brought up solely with Chinese Medicine by her Chinese Taoist parents, Jo has been familiar with Traditional Chinese Medicine ("TCM") practically her whole life. Much of her knowledge about TCM was mostly experiential exposure passed down from generations in her Chinese family. To complement her personal experience with TCM, Jo went on to study Chinese Medicine at the Singapore College of TCM, as well as the Academy of TCM. She has also completed a course on Chinese Meridians with American Acupuncturist, Dr Susan Stumpf.
Jo holds a 3-year teaching Diploma from the Bihar School of Yoga (Satyananda Yoga Academy) that popularized the tantric relaxation practice of Yoga Nidra, which she often incorporates into her Yin classes. Her deep knowledge in the Chinese Meridian system inspired her to develop the full visualization practice of Meridian Nidra based on the Meridian Clock and Yoga Nidra.
She has a deep interest in anatomy and fascial studies. She has completed several cadaver dissections and continues to attend these dissection laboratories every year. She has studied with renowned pioneers in fascia research - Gil Hedley, Thomas Myers and Robert Schleip. Jo has also attended fascia school at Ulm University, Germany. She is a founding member of the Fascia Research Society.
Jo is currently the Director of Teacher Training at True Yoga Singapore and spends most of her time traveling around the world delivering Yin Yoga Teacher Training programs. Her popular Yin trainings are very much sought after by yoga teachers seeking to add Yin Yoga into their teaching repertoire. She teaches in 200hrs and 500hrs training programs, and leads retreats and workshops in Yin Yoga. www.yinspiration.org
