OVERVIEW

In this training course, you’ll study the what’s, why’s and how’s of Yin Yoga.

You will learn that what we practice is important but how we practice it is even more important. In Yin Yoga, we position our body in a particular pose and then let go of all muscular efforts and surrender to the floor for gravity to do the work. By doing so, we relax our muscles and apply moderate stress to the deepest layers of connective tissues of the body -tendons, fascia, and ligaments- improving the health and mobility of joints.

Our foundational 50-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course provides all the tools, resources and knowledge you need to deepen your practice and to start teaching Yin Yoga to others. The functional approach of the course -based on skeletal variations and uniqueness of every and each practitioner- provides a renewed perspective of the yoga asanas.

If you love the benefits of the Yin Yoga practice in your body and mind, and are ready to take it to next level, this is the perfect start for you!
