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.
With no travel time needed, just roll out your mat in the comfort of your own home and let’s get started.
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?
Based on Yin Yoga founder Paul Grilley's 14/10/7 model, the course provides the rationale for why our yoga practice should be based on the function of poses, rather than the aesthetics of how a pose looks.
Keen students with a good understanding of the Yin poses will also find this course invaluable.
