Joe Barnett, ERYT-500, based loosely in both Cincinnati, OH and Tucson, AZ, has been teaching for 14 years. He travels nationally and internationally year round offering presentations and trainings on Yin and Yang (Vinyasa) forms of Yoga.He provides a deep study (both experiential and anatomical) of the crude physical Skeleton and Fascia, as well as the more subtle Meridians and Chakras. Joe is a senior student and primary teaching assistant of Paul Grilley, a true Yoga Scientist and founder of Yin Yoga. After several years of apprenticing under Paul, Joe began roaming the globe to spread the word of his teacher’s work: 1) Yin Yoga, 2) a Functional Analysis of the Skeleton, and 3) Chakra Meditation. Naturally he began training yoga teachers across the world how to begin using these practical models to help others find a quiet practice of surrender.
“Joe Barnett has been our friend and assistant for many years. He has two qualities that make him an excellent presenter: he knows the anatomical principles and he relates to people in a sympathetic manner. His presentations are unhurried, hands on demonstrations, this is the easiest way to absorb these ideas.” ~ Paul and Suzee Grilley
Teaching Yin Yoga 7 Windows of Communication ; Level 1 Training
Yin Yoga is a very simple practice. We settle into a posture for 3-7 minutes and slowly relax our muscles to allow the deeper drier tissues–-the connective tissues that wrap our muscles and make up our joint capsules-–to be safely and therapeutically stretched, stimulated and strengthened.The rules of the postures are also simple, but more importantly they are functional and organic: Listen to the body and find the posture according to the unique and natural contours of spine, pelvis and hips. However, simplicity can be challenging, especially for the Yoga teacher trying to guide a room full of individuals with unique body types, structures, injuries, needs and interests without overwhelming them with chatter. With his 7 Windows of Communication, Joe will help teachers of Yin understand the Functional Objectives of the poses, and the simplest most effective language to help guide each individual student to their optimal and distinct variation of the posture.The training is meant for anybody who has been practicing yoga for at least a year, and has done Yin Yoga before. Students should also have an interest in deepening their understanding of the more contemplative side of the practice including; meditation, pranayama and further energetic practices.If you are new to yin this course will give you the basic training to start teaching. If you have been teaching you will deepen your understanding of this ancient practice and be able to immediately apply your learning.
Students will be awarded a yoga alliance 25 hour certificate.
