During your training, you will stay in Can Jou, a beautiful accommodation with a spectacular view over the Pyrenees where you can enjoy the entire peace of mind you need to reconnect with nature. You will have the possibility to choose from a private room, a twin shared room, and a shared room for three people.

Yin yoga is the gentle application of tension and compression to the body, which induces a healthy phase change in the tissue. The practice is characterized by long, static holds, using floor based asana, for muscle relaxation and myofascial release, allowing for a meditative focus. Yin yoga focuses on Daoist principles of the energetic network, embedded within the body, using the energy pathways to harmonize the body.

At the end of the course, you will be able to follow a path in Yin yoga, incorporate techniques learned into your teaching and self-practice, broaden your teaching expertise with new knowledge from a Yin yoga perspective, and in the end being able to offer your students a new style of yoga, which complements and balances other practices.

You will learn Yin and Yang yoga practices, Yin asanas and their target areas, but also the principles and history of Yin yoga, and its function over form approach. You will learn how to teach the methodology of Yin yoga, how to sequence a Yin yoga class, focusing on the energetic body through meridian channels, the physical body through myofascial release, and the mental body through a variety of techniques of meditation and pranayama.

You will learn about muscle mandalas, with physical and energetic target areas and about fascia's connective tissue and the body’s living energy web. You will hear about the Meridian theory, Qi theory, Chinese medicine, and the five elements.

You will get back to the nature of Yin and Yang yoga and get deep into the yogic philosophy of Patanjali’s eight limbs and their connection to Yin yoga. Also, the Buddhist philosophy and meditation will be an important part of the training. The meditation part will also include Qi Gong practices.

You will breakdown of Yin asana and the art of propping, to increase and decrease stress, to make Yin yoga accessible for all body types. This way you will discover your body and mind.

Testimonials

  • Review by Emma from Netherlands

    "The structure was concrete and it felt like a very intimate course with lots of freedom and openness towards ideas. The part that spoke to me most was Chinese Medicine but the first week has been very beneficial for my anatomy knowledge. I really like the energy you put into it. Thank you!"

    "I liked your knowledge and ability to connect concepts and make them accessible. You answered many questions left open after previous courses and workshops. Many breaks help to lighten the mood and it made it feel like a bit of a retreat. I enjoyed the most that the course was small and intimate. I felt comfortable and safe to let go."

  • Review by Karolina from Poland

    "I liked the anatomy and connection to the asanas. I liked the practices in the mornings as they were themed to one of the elements we were learning about. The mix with yang classes was a good idea to break up the yin. The course was well thought out and I enjoyed it a lot."

  • Review by Farah from Jordan

    "For me it was so challenging to stay still for a yoga class. That is why I decided to join Yin TTC. The energy of the teacher, students and staff was very helpful. The way that yin yoga is introduced and practiced with a yang evening class was excellent. The course was given from the heart and with passion which leads into students delivering classes from the heart and with passion."

  • Review by Jenn from United States

    "I really enjoyed having multi-style and individual attention in a supportive environment. It allowed me to really work on my practice, try out new asanas and I felt that I really improved because of it. A lot of other yoga classes assume that you already know or just don't give the opportunity to try out new postures. This was so different and needed."

    "I am going to start practising yoga every day because it creates space, allows you to find time for yourself, helps you hear what your body is telling you, stretches your muscles and relaxes your mind. Thank you for showing me yoga, it is so much more than stretching your muscles."
