About the course
Level 1- 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.
Level 2 e continue with 5 more additional Yin poses. 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. Students learn how to use the TCM colours sounds and emotions of the Meridians. as well as joint release and Tapping the meridians to enhance the Yin Practice
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.

THE YIN 30 HOUR TRAINING
Yin as Yoga Therapy
YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
30-Hour Teacher Training
with Michael & Birgit Johnson
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.
In this 30-Hour Course, you will learn fundamental Yin poses and its variations also the effects of the Yin poses from physiologic, anatomic, energetic, emotional, mental, and therapeutic perspectives
functional anatomy & physiology applied to Yin Yoga (fascia system,
fascia lines & spiral loops, skeletal ranges of movement and the
the basics of traditional Chinese medicine and 5 Element Theory and how
to balance the energy flow in specific meridians to improve your physical,
emotional and mental health
how to embody the Yin quality in your life, opening up to surrendering,
stillness and self-love
how to modify the practice to make it safe for different types of
how to use props to adapt the challenge of each pose to different needs
how to deepen your the Yin practice and teaching with meditation
techniques and breathing practices
What do our students have to say;
YIN Level I
Perfect kombi of personal experience and knowledge transfer
High amount of lectures (not too much, but definitely more than in level II): what is yin, 5 elements, fascia/superficial lines, effects on central nervous system plus and learning to teach the poses; Therefore for me at the edge of what I can absorb - but still ok. Definitely a lot to digest – also in a cognitive way
Small group create high level of trust and openness – Teacher fostered that openness as well
Intense experience of all the poses – not only on paper and in theory – great!
Enables you in a perfect way to go out and teach yin yoga classes immediately
Improved my breathing techniques through practice a lot – I use calming and balancing pranayama in a more conscious way during Hatha and Yin practice and during meditation
Gained a lot of experience and positive feedback that I can endure discomfort easily.. also in uncomfy poses, this “success” helps me in daily life as well
Integrated yin poses in my personal practice – and can focus on organs/meridians
YIN Level II
Higher amount of personal practice and additional elements (e.g. Osho and yoga nidra)
Not soooo much lectures (compared to level I) but the content is even more intense and a real game changer!
Not so much about teaching the classes (just a bit incl sequencing – liked it) – but experiences enables group to teach them any how
Perfect group size (not bigger!!) – again a high level of openness, compassion and trust; practicing and making the experiences felt really safe
Flow of the 3 days was perfect – intensity increased constantly and led to the experience of day 3
Best invested 3 days ever ever ever
During practice: body spoke to me very clearly, where I have blocks and stuck emotions. I was not aware of them in my mind – emotions and feeling correlated to the organ/meridian are THE personal assessment tool that you just can`t ignore
No coaching or self-reflection / mental self-assessment could ever be such an eye opener
Personal exchange with you accelerated it even more (you ask bloody good questions)
Process of getting access to my body, mind and soul climaxed in a feeling that I really got rid of deep (and suppressed or ignored) stuff. Totally reached a new level of energy flow, lightness, confidence and balance
To summarize it:
Level I is about to get you out there as a yin teacher and improve your own practice
Level II is about bringing yourself to a next level in your personal and spiritual journey
