Neuroplasticity and mindset: We will explore the power of conscious thinking and acting, mindset and how we can restructure our thoughts, patterns and beliefs on a neurological level. You will also gain insight into your unconscious habits and explore ways in how to rewire them in a more positive light.

Mindful Ways of Teaching: Understanding the emotional depth that is involved with this sacred practice and honouring everyone’s personal experience and practice. You will gain a general understanding of the mental and emotional health considerations that may arise as well as what is appropriate in your scope of practice.

Teaching Responsibly: Teaching from the heart while understanding the great responsibility you hold. You will gain practical experience in holding space for others mentally, emotionally and energetically but also keeping yourself and the student’s safe while practicing yin yoga. We will explore things like communication, propping, sequencing and other components that make a strong teacher. You will be able to confidently sequence and guide a safe and accessible class while understanding the power of the language we, as teachers, use as well as offering ways in which your students can further explore the capacity of their thoughts, beliefs and patterns.

Experiencing is fundamental to learning 

Translating scientific research and case studies into a foundation of understanding to benefit your practice and teaching of Yin Yoga will put your knowledge, wisdom and experience high above the majority of teachers. This course us unlike many other Yin Yoga training’s and is where science meets spirituality.

You will be walked through how we can use Yin Yoga as a positive tool to re-wire our brain, both in theory of science and teaching methodology, as well as your experience of application to practice.  This will not only highlight the power of our brain, linking directly into the theory of meditation and mindfulness, but will give you a fundamental understanding of its power and capabilities, explaining why and how meditation and mindfulness should be taught alongside Yin Yoga.

**This course has a strong thread of art of teaching**
The art of teaching will prepare you to understand the responsibilities of being a Yin Yoga teacher, looking at key aspects within teaching methodology. Specific techniques shall be shared pertaining to meditation and mindfulness based on the concept of neuroplasticity. Being an experiential, positive and inspirational learning environment, you will embody the physical, energetic, mental and emotional realms within the yin yoga practice from two points of view: the practitioner and the teacher.

Small Groups = Time With Trainers
We believe that no yoga course is effective without giving time for integration, questions, answers and support that are personal to you. The second week focuses on you and supporting you to integrate your knowledge into a workshop based class and beyond. Working with students on a one on one basis is what puts this course apart from others. Every student receives time to ask questions to trainers on how to confidently move forward with their Yin Yoga teaching path.

Yin Yoga brings you home to yourself, where you become whole


The Day

This course will take you into the brain on Yin Yoga like no other training. Understanding the inner workings of the brain, the neuroplasticity of how and why it functions in the way that it does, will give you a strong understanding of patterns and behaviours that unconsciously affect our every day living.

Morning Nurturing Practice:

This is the main practice of the day and is with a lens of the mind, and how we can shape it during Yin Yoga. We will dive into the depths of what it means to fully present in the mind, understanding and embodying the principles and benefits of Yin Yoga from the scope of your mindset. Taking a detour from the body, we will focus on the mental habits and how one can break free from what holds us back, using Yin Yoga a positive tool for self- development. This will give you more than a unique twist to your teaching and practice. This course will give you a depth and spice to your yoga teaching like no other.


This is the juicy bit of the course where we will have the opportunity to intricately break down the components of Yin yoga in relation to the mind and reveal what it all means. These theoretical classes provide you with an opportunity to take a deeper look and specifically evaluate, question, discuss and develop the topics which make up the backbone of teaching, exploring and developing your experience and expertise in yoga. Some of the theory classes will have supporting educational videos and workshops to accompany the lecture. This session is to give you the scientific and theoretical foundation needed for a deeper understanding of experiential Yin yoga.

Art of Teaching: These classes are where we will breakdown what it means to teach yin yoga. This is the ‘how to’ and the ‘why’. You could call this the ‘behind the scenes’ of yin yoga teaching. The art of teaching is a discussion-based class and participation from students is welcome and encouraged. We will be focusing on breaking down the asanas from a mental approach that leverages off the physicality of the pose.

Asana breakdown is a practical class where we break down the Yin yoga asana (target area, cueing, propping). This requires small group work from students for experiential learning. This session is ultimately about you and to build your teaching expertise.

Empowering Evening Practice: Evening practice incorporates a multitude of inner practices that range from yang styles of yoga and movement, to a meditation circle and spiritual practices.

I needed a breath of life in my yoga practice. I needed a different angle on Yoga that the one I currently had. I really enjoyed the focus on ‘how to’ teach. I feel that this was something I was greatly missing in my teaching. Yoga can be an open source to everyone and I realised how many ways there are to uniquely teach Yin Yoga. Thank you! Om, Shanti Shanti John
