Chinese Medicine Immersion

March 27-30, 2017 | New York

Join Yoga Medicine in New York this spring for the Chinese Medicine Immersion (25hrs) led by Tiffany Cruikshank. This format is a shortened version of the full 60-hour Chinese Medicine module that we offer. Immersions are a great way for our teachers and dedicated practitioners to continue their education without having to commit to an entire week or a long plane ride. The price of these immersion trainings includes the training tuition only, making it accessible for local teachers or those who want to find their own food & accommodations.

Yoga Medicine’s immersions usually begin with a daily 2-hour morning practice relevant to the course content & follow with afternoon training lectures and a short evening review assignments to help you retain the information.

This immersion will give you a foundation in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theory to help you understand your student’s unique individual constitution and how that can allow your work to be more effective. You will learn the basic five-element theory, yin and yang theory, and the differentiation of the organs or Zang Fu theory as it applies specifically to yoga. By understanding the framework of Chinese Medicine it gives us a basis to individualize the practice for our students needs. 

Each student must bring 2 tennis balls to lecture.

This module counts as 25 hours towards your 500hr or 1000hr certification. You do not need to be enrolled in our 500hr/1000hr program in order to attend, though you are welcome to apply before the immersion. After the immersion, you also have the option to apply to our program if you would like to continue studying with Yoga Medicine.
