Learn to teach the foundations of Yin Yoga in this immersive teacher training with Leah Adams. Yin Yoga is a meditative and centering yoga practice that is often described as the other half of exercise. It is a complementary practice to more active styles of yoga, supporting maintenance of mobility, and an opportunity to explore mindfulness and the more subtle aspects of a yoga practice. Yin Yoga offers a container to coax the nervous system into balance and promote deep rest. Yin Yoga is both ancient and modern, designed to enliven the tissues, soften and steady the heart, and enhance and balance our energetic system.

This Yin Yoga Teacher Training offers a blend of Yin Yoga classes, lectures, hands-on exploration, and practice teaching.

Our training curriculum covers the following topics:

  • Classic Yin Poses (benefits, considerations & cautions, body types, modifications, variations, sequencing)
  • Benefits of Yin Yoga
  • Anatomy of Yin Yoga
  • Exploring sensation (tension, compression, opening, edges, discomfort, pain)
  • Inner Practice: Introduction to Meditation & Visualization
  • Restorative breathwork for nervous system support
  • Bioelectricity and the subtle body
  • Qi and meridian theory
  • History of Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture
  • Difference between Yin and Restorative Yoga

This training is for yoga teachers, acupuncturists, massage therapists and anyone that practices Yin Yoga who wants to dive deeper into the philosophy and practice of Yin Yoga.
