AdvertisementLevel Two Yin Yoga Teacher Training: Meridians and Qi
with Dr. Eric Baumgartner and Leah Adams
Our inner and outer worlds are inextricably linked, and this connection influences our psychological, emotional and physical states. Living in alignment with nature — including our own — is the ultimate form of self-care. Join Dr. Eric Baumgartner and Leah Adams for their fifth iteration of level 2 Yin Yoga Teacher Training. This program offers a blend of lectures, hands-on learning, and practice that delivers wisdom teachings with a sense of lineage and science. Students will gain practical tools that can be applied to their own lives and to their yin and yang style teaching. It is an immersive training—a deep dive into understanding fundamental aspects of your own nervous system, becoming rooted in ancient practices, and learning how to fuel sustainable and healthy bodies, hearts, and minds through the perspective of the Eastern lineages of energetic healing arts.

Connection between Yin Yoga and Eastern Medicine
Qi and meridian theory
Fascia and relationship to meridians
Introduction to five element theory
Sequences to balance and enhance energy
Breathing practices through Eastern perspectives
