On demand Yin Yoga Teacher Training

For open-minded, curious yoga teachers and students

Have you ever wondered if there’s a better way to teach yoga, one that doesn’t involve putting your students into uncomfortable, unsustainable postures?

Maybe you’ve considered teacher training, but it’s been hard to find like-minded, compassionate and curious people and an inclusive space to learn.

Would you love to arm yourself with new skills, but also build connections, exchange ideas and ask questions in an intimate environment, not be just one of many in a crowded course?

  • Inclusive and open-minded

    Yin yoga is for everybody and for every body type. A flexible mindset is more important than being physically flexible. This is what makes a Yin yoga practice sustainable in the long-term.

  • Compassionate and curious

    By understanding functional anatomy, and the philosophy of Yin yoga, you’ll unlock a new way of instructing, that respects the abilities and limitations of your students and keeps them returning to their mat.

  • Flexible delivery

    With no travel time needed, just roll out your mat in the comfort of your own home and let’s get started.

Meet Leonie Lockwood

Yin Yoga Instructor & Trainer

I began offering Yin yoga training because I felt teachers needed a better understanding of our individual anatomy and how that affects our ability to ‘do’ poses. I’d seen so many students come to classes, be adjusted by teachers, but unable to maintain the adjusted shape. They wouldn’t return to yoga because they thought they were too inflexible. Something was missing.

Amy Livingstone

Leonie’s passion for Yin is inspirational. She has such skill and depth of knowledge - but her practical approach makes Yin so accessible.

Gabby McMillan

This course gave me a whole new experience of the functional approach to yoga. It made me understand how to move energy and target areas as part of a sequence for every body type, not just super flexible young students.

Jessie Wenborn

The layout of this course was fantastic. It was crafted and sequenced well so I never felt overwhelmed.

Tracey Cherchia

This has been a really wonderful experience, thank you. It has been so empowering to explore more options and confirmed my gut feelings that I was already working with as a teacher. This has nourished that inner feeling.

Tamsyn Wymer

Leonie is grounded, caring, incredibly well studied and very passionate in her teaching. The filmed and interactive content was so engaging which really supported my learning and integration of material. Leonie created a safe container to practice, explore and learn from others. Although we didn’t meet in person the group felt friendly and like no question was a silly question.
