Why Train?

For teachers dedicated to a higher standard of learning looking to deepen their knowledge.
  • You now want to take your Yin Yoga further: Great! Now we really look at the upper body, Eastern models of the body including meridians and Dantians (chakras).

  • You just love your meditation and Yin practice and want to get deeper into traditional motivations for meditation and Yin Yoga. Right On! You're covered here too. With the combined training, reading and discussion and interactive opportunities to learn, you'll be amazed at the depth of the Yin tradition.

  • You want to be more than just a "me too" Yin Yoga teacher.  Fantastic! We believe that an experienced Yin Yoga teacher is a key component in our healthcare today and with our credentials people know we have a teacher who is knowledgeable and experienced.


This Yin Yoga course is for those who have completed module 1.



This 100hr Yin Yoga Training Foundation is specifically designed to:

  • Give you more detailed subtle body theoretical knowledge you need to lead excellent Yin classes. It's not just about the body anymore.

  • Spend significant time delving into the rich Taoist philosophy that Yin is born out of.  This will empower you to teach based on the Taoist and Chinese Medicine understanding of the body and mind. 

  • Educate you more on the upper body. We have focused in module 1 more on lower body. But that's only half the story!

This training will give you the most advanced skills necessary to step into a classroom upon graduation and confidently teach Yin Yoga. Applying long-held non-muscular torque on our bodies, Yin stimulates & strengthens our skeletal, connective, fascial and ligament tissues, mobilizes our joints and regulates and soothes our nervous system.
