Eight-day Yin Training

Advanced Yin Yoga Teacher Training

Norman - eye of the needle

About the course

This eight-day training will enable participants to teach Yin yoga. This is a wonderful way to deepen and reflect on Yin yoga practice and teaching. 

Participants will learn the skills and the tools of teaching this practice. Sequencing and theming of classes will be covered in detail. During the course, there will be homework. Each person will at the end of the course teach a 30 minute class to the other participants and there will be feedback given. There will be sessions on meditation practice and teaching; a thorough understanding of anatomy and Yin yoga; a session on energy channels (meridians) and Traditional Chinese Medicine and how this relates to Yin yoga.

The aim of this course is to give participants the abilities, the confidence and the knowledge to teach Yin yoga. Participants will get a course manual and other handouts. After the course, each participant is eligible for a one hour interview. Numbers on the course are limited to twelve and this small group experience can be a significant factor in encouraging the process of learning. Training hours (60 in total) are eligible for Yoga Alliance continuing education (YACEP).

Payment of £200 non-refundable deposit * secures a place with the balance due two months before the course begins.
