Yin Yoga Teacher Training


Course Description

Yin yoga teacher training will change how you feel about slowing down and all other yoga practices.

This 55 hour foundational program will immerse you in all things yin, the slower, cooler side of Yang.

From the yin/yang philosophy, meridian theory, anatomy that is inclusive of all body types to learning at least three variations of each yin pose. You’ll get a full education in the type of breath for yin, chill cueing style, yin for pregnancy, holding space and many guided meditations used in this quiet practice.

The awareness that you will cultivate from this style of yoga, will inform any other yoga & meditation practices that you currently do. Yin is an exercise that will reveal how to find your center among the busyness of life.
