• About yin vs. yang practices
• How yin tissues differ from yoga tissues and how to work with them
• How to teach yin yoga
• Sequencing yin poses for a class
• How to adapt postures for stiff bodies, injuries, as well as mobile bodies
• About the meridian system of Chinese medicine and how it relates to yin yoga
• About the physical and energetic qualities of the organs related to the meridians
