Course Description

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

This 50 hour foundational program will immerse you in all things yin, the slower, cooler side of Yang.

From the Daoist history and philosophy, practical meridian theory, anatomy that is inclusive of all body types and learning at least three variations of each yin pose. You’ll get a full education in the type of breath for yin, types of cueing styles, yin for pregnancy, introduction to meditation and holding space and many guided styles of yin classes used in this quiet practice.

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