About the course

Part 1-3 days Our goal is to focus on learning the basic 20 plus poses with a focus on the lower body and  focusing on the Gall Bladder, Stomach and Urinary Bladder and Liver meridians. Creating sequences in line with the these elements and the therapeutic use of the poses to balance the individual meridians thus releasing tension and restoring  the flow of energy through the meridians and in the overall body.

Part 2 3days Our goal is the upper body with the sequencing and poses focus on The arms , shoulders and neck. Students learn the corresponding sequences for the Heart, Lungs, Large and Small intestine, Triple Heater. Participants also learn several Myofascial release techniques using balls and body-weight to release restrictions in the fascia and Fascia yoga techniques to enhance the re education of the body.

Level 1 and 2 give you the  teacher or practitioner a very comprehensive set of tools and understanding to be a effective knowledgeable teacher of the Yin Yoga Practice.

Yin brings the qualities of patience, awareness, clarity and spaciousness to the practitioner. The space we create in the body manifests as space created in the mind. This connected mirroring is essentially the foundation principle of yoga, everything is connected. For all those looking  for an effective reboot back to being calm and relaxed, this a great training.

200 hour teacher training is helpful but i do make exceptions as the material is unique.

Valid Yoga Alliance continuing eductaion Certificates wil be issued after succesful completion of the training.

  • Yin Yoga is a powerful therapeutic practice for body and mind complementing and

    counterbalancing greatly other yang practices such as Power and Vinyasa Yoga

    styles. It is a quiet and simple practice, but not necessarily an easy one. Yin Yoga

    works deeply into our body. Long and steady holds target at our deepest tissues

    of the body, such as ligaments, joints, bones, and the deep fascia networks of

    the body rather than at the muscles. Yin Yoga releases deep tensions, improves

    the energy flow, enhances the energy in the organs and provides us with vitality,

    flexibility and focus.

    This training is a comprehensive education in the practice of therapeutic Yin

    Yoga, providing students with in-depth knowledge of the human body and mind.

    Ranging from a bio mechanical perspective to a subtle energetic approach.
