Our Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training is designed to help you in creating a strong foundation of Yin Yoga and Yoga Anatomy for your own practice as well as for teaching. The training has been created truly for anyone that wants to dive into their Yin Yoga practice or for someone that wants to go out and share their love of Yin Yoga through teaching. The training is a perfect blend of an open- minded approach to practicing/teaching, while also helping you to learn all the skills to teach and the technical side of the Yin Yoga practice.
Students will leave this training with the ability to teach a 1.5 hour Yin Yoga class as well as the tools to work with students with a variety of different goals and abilities. The core philosophy of our training is creating a fun, safe and creative space for future teachers to develop and deepen their Yin Yoga teaching knowledge.
