Yin Yoga 50-hour Teacher Training Program 2019

Due to problems arising in the Yosemite Place studio, the Fall training has been cancelled.

Learn how to teach Yin Yoga in this 50 hour training course.

Yin Yoga is a profound practice that opens up energetic blockages in the physical, emotional and mental bodies.  It is a courageous and nourishing practice as it is directly meeting yourself through the raw sensations in your body. Like in meditation, your awareness is sharpened as you bear witness to your conditioned patterns. Yin invites the harmonizing of the pervasive connective tissue in the body by ’stressing’  and breaking down entangled fibers from physical/emotional/mental tension or from physical immobility resulting in smoothly textured flowing pranic (called chi in Yin Yoga) energy. These rivers of energy in the body are important for the passage of water and pervasive communication throughout your body. After a Yin Yoga practice the fluidity of your energy is strongly palpable and pleasant.

Yin Yoga helps you cultivate kind engagement with your inner self. It is a practice of self-inquiry and ease. It is a spacious practice that opens your breath and understanding. It is a beautiful complimentary practice to active, Yang Yoga.

This qualifies for Yoga Alliance continuing education credits.
