Whether you are a yoga practitioner looking to deepen your knowledge or a qualified teacher wanting to expand your teaching, this training offers the perfect balance of practical knowledge and experiential embodiment.

Who is this for?

This training is for both dedicated yoga teachers who would like to teach Yin Yoga and passionate practitioners who wish to deepen their personal practice.

Program Details

This training is broken down into two modules facilitated over two weekends. You can choose to sign up for either the Foundational 20hr training or your 40hr Advance Yin Yoga Training (module 1+2).

Module 1

The Foundations of Yin Yoga, teaches you everything you need to know about the physical aspects of teaching and practicing Yin Yoga: the postures, principles of the practice, fascia, functional alignment, and how to lead a safe and effective class.

Module 2

This module will build upon the first and is designed for anyone looking to refine their teaching and explore a deeper understanding of the more subtle dimensions of Yin yoga. In this training we will uncover Yin Yoga and the emotional body through the lens of Traditional Chinese Medicine & Taoist Five Element Meridian Theory.
