The power of our words as a Yin Yoga Teacher is a key skill you can develop & which can become the magic medicine to an effective practice for our students. Our words can add so much meaning to this beautiful practice.

The words we use can be the primary way in which our students receive the qualities of our Yin teaching.

Our words have the power to integrate fully our class intentions, promote better self awareness for our students & support them in their journey of body/mind connection, in addition to nurturing students in just the ‘right’ moment. Whether we realise the impact or not.

There is so much to explore about the use of language, from what we say to allow students to feel welcome on arrival, how to easily explain this reflective style to both beginners or our more active style students, learning how to produce the right words that link smoothly to our intentions when creating lessons, together with knowing when to effectively drop in any practice principle cues that may be required & how to evolve our own observational skills, which become the key to our use of language during a Yin Yoga class.

In addition to effectively weaving your intentions throughout your class for both embodied learning & therefore the possibility of inner transformation for our students.
