HOW TO PREPARE FOR THE IN-PERSON MODULE?

To make the most of the practical part of your YTTC, we advise you to:

  • Watch as many videos/lectures of the online module as possible. (Ideally -but not necessarily-, you may finish this module before attending the In-person Module; otherwise, you can complete the Online Module at your own rhythm and pace)
  • Make notes, write down your questions and doubts
  • Practice Yin Yoga -at least- 3 times a week
  • Print and bring the Student Manual, the Study Guide (all provided in the Online Module), and any other resource you think you may need. This is completely optional, but take into account that we won’t provide any printed material during the In-person Module.
  • Take enough comfortable and appropriate yoga clothes. (You may change clothes a few times a day).
  • We will provide yoga mats and all the props you may need during your course, but if you want to bring your own yoga mat is totally up to you.
