50 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course

Most forms of yoga today are dynamic, active practices designed to work mainly the muscular body or the Yang tissue. Yin Yoga on the other hand allows us to address the other half, the deeper, Yin tissue of our ligaments, joints and our fascia network. More than that Yin Yoga offers a great opportunity to learn to release physical and emotional tension, free stagnant or blocked energy and cultivate a peaceful quality of mind.

Learn all essential aspects of practicing and teaching Yin Yoga and find out more about the Mindfulness Principles and the Daoist Elements and Meridians this contemplative method integrates. The philosophical and energetic aspects of Yin Yoga can be a gateway to healing and offers resources of inspiration for your practice and your teaching.

What Yin Yoga is about:

  • Maintain and expand flexibility and mobility, rejuvenate the body
  • Apply mindfulness principles in your practice and create peace in our mind
  • Harmonise body, mind and soul through the Taoist wisdom of the Chi and the Meridian flow in the poses


Three principles for the yin practice:

  • Come into the pose to an appropriate depth
  • Resolve to remain still
  • Hold the pose for time (3 to 5 minutes on average)

Yin is an incredibly meditative practice, allowing space to be created and experienced in the body and the mind. Using the breath to calm the mind and in turn release the thoughts and bodily tension, finding comfort in the discomfort that may arise.

The Yin Yoga training is suitable for yoga students of all levels and teacher alike, who have an interest in exploring a complementary practice to the active, dynamic, yang, yoga styles. This training will strengthen both your knowledge and your practice of yoga.
