Neuroplasticity: 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 everyday living.
Yin Yoga: 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 mindfulness, but will give you a fundamental understanding of the brains power and capabilities
Emotional Intelligence: Diving into emotional intelligence you will learn how to acknowledge and manage your emotional ebb and flow using Yoga and essential oil practices. Not only your Yoga path will be empowered but your understanding of how to manoeuvre and navigate your teaching from an emotional aspect will flourish, exploring why and how emotional intelligence matters more than IQ.
Aromatherapy: Discovering the earthy power of essential oils and their connection to the emotional body, you will learn how to use their interplay with emotional intelligence in Yin Yoga classes to promote emotional well-being, both on and off the mat.
Art of Teaching: Developing your teaching technique to facilitate a class beyond the basics, being mindful of the challenges in each dimension of our existence, adapting the practice for who is in your class to create a safe environment to practice in, internally and externally. This is where you craft your authenticity in your teaching.

Week 2: Yin, Emotional Intelligence & Aromatherapy with the Art of Teaching
Morning Nurturing Practice:
This is the main practice of the day and focuses on Yin Yoga from the mental landscape and raising emotional awareness. We will dive into the depths of what it means to fully present in the mind, journeying into the fuller scope of Yin Yoga, we will attend to mental and emotional habits and how one can break free from what holds us back, using Yin Yoga a positive tool for self- development.
This is the juicy bit of the course where we will intricately break down the components of Yin Yoga in relation to the mind and mental and emotional landscape. Breaking down the neuroplasticity and linking it to meditation and mindfulness will give you a confident and new angle of understanding when teaching Yin Yoga responsibly. Adding on the layer of emotional awareness you will learn how to soothe the nervous system and emotional brain with essential oils, creating a nurturing space for Yin and restorative practice. These classes specifically evaluate, question, discuss and develop the topics which make up the backbone of teaching safely from the mental and emotional dimension. 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 and how it connects to mind and spirituality.
Art of Teaching: These classes are where breakdown what it means to teach Yin Yoga. This is the ‘how to’ and the ‘why’. The art of teaching is a discussion-based class and participation from students is welcome and encouraged. When it comes to teaching from the mental space we must dive deeper than simple cueing and sequencing. This is your chance to understand how to support your students through their transition into the mental landscape in a safe and nourishing way. This is the most important part of being a Yin Yoga teacher.
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. This allows you to learn how to keep the physical body safe while nurturing the gateway to the mind.
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.

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. This is where your teaching skill will develop.
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. 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. When we are unveiling the power of the mind, we must have space to consistently ask questions. We acknowledge that and facilitate that.
