This course is a Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program, and hosted on the beautiful tropical island of Koh Phangan, Thailand
This yin yoga teacher training is a 12 day immersion, and includes 12 nights of accommodation & 3 vegetarian meals per day.
We recommend that you have already completed a 200 yoga teacher training, or have a consistent and established home practice, but this training is open to all Yin Yoga enthusiasts.
This course is designed as a Yoga Alliance continuing education course (YACEP) for yoga teachers.
Yin Yoga blends the introspective power of meditation with the energy-enhancing properties of yoga and pranayama. It is a perfect complement to active lives and yoga practices, and suitable for practitioners of all levels.
This training has been designed for yoga teachers and yoga practitioners who seek to enhance their teaching or personal practice by turning inward and further discovering the body, breath and mind in ways that are rarely worked in more dynamic “yang” yoga styles.
Enrich your teaching and discover new ways to explore the body-mind connection using the tools of Yin Yoga in this training that combines hands-on instructive teaching and powerful spiritual inquiry.
SHARED ROOMS, are available only to 2 students. If you are arriving alone, indicate in the comment section of your application to place you on the shared room waitlist. If another student wants to share a room, we will notify you that a Shared Room is available.
