Transform your Yoga Teaching

Online 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?

with Leonie Lockwood

The online course includes 15 hours of pre-recorded modules, plus 5 hours of live stream content and 5 hours of self-directed study for a 25-hour certification. In a small, intimate group of no more than 12 students, you’ll have every question answered and a chance to build skills and community with peers.

This training is for yoga teachers (part-time, new and mature teachers all welcome) and Yin students with a minimum 12 months’ experience.

  • 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.

Qualifications & experience
  • 11+ years of yoga teaching experience
  • 19 + years of yoga practice
  • 550 hours of Yin yoga study with Yin Yoga founder Paul Grilley

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.

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

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.
