50HR YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
teaching yin yoga
Join our signature yin training and gain the knowledge to confidently teach yin yoga - in just two weekends
At the start of your journey, teaching yin yoga can feel overwhelming
Even with a 200hr teacher training under your belt and experience teaching other classes: when you try to teach yin classes, your confidence falls away.
You can guide yogis into yin asanas, but then you feel lost. You're not sure of the purpose of each pose or how they help your students. Worse still, when you've guided your yogis into your chosen pose, what do you do?
Do you talk? And if so, what do you say?
Or do you stay silent? And if so, why does the silence feel awkward?
And what do you do if your yogis start fidgeting? How do you help them re-settle?
Remaining stuck and not knowing how to improve can affect your confidence and your income. But what if you had the knowledge and guidance you need to teach yin yoga from a place of ease?
Helping you connect back to your heart, so you can teach from a place of aroha
Our 50 hour yin yoga teacher training is specifically designed to help you confidently teach yin classes. Whilst we spend time diving deep into yin asanas, our real 'mahi' is connecting you back to your heart.You see, we believe, when you're supported by experienced guides, surrounded by a community of like-minded yogis and given time and space to gently explore your own yin practice - magical things happen...
As you find more stillness in your yin practice, your body, your mind and your heart all begin to feel safe, supported and at ease. When your own heart is at peace, you build the confidence to guide students to open to the wisdom of their hearts too.Over (a total of) six training days, we guide you into deeper states of mindfulness. We do this through a unique training approach we've developed over 10 years of teaching fledgling yin teachers.
Our unique, two-weekend training:
WEEKEND ONE (FRI, SAT & SUN)• Get familiar with the 32 essential yin asanas• Learn how to intelligently and thoughtfully sequence a Yin class• Start discovering words that support students in your Yin classes and know when to say them and when to leave space• Discover the foundations of Mindfulness and complete mindfulness practices everyday• Begin your discovery of the energetic body• Learn the pathways of the Lung, Large Intestine, Heart, Small Intestine, Liver and Gallbladder meridians. Discover how poses move energy along the meridians
MID-WAY CHECK-IN• Take part in a 75 min video call with your guides and fellow yogis to reflect on how you're tracking• Ask questions and explore topics that come up after your first training weekend• Connect back into the yin yoga community that surrounds you

When you train with us, we want you to lose as little of your daily income as possible. So we run our training over two long weekends.
We also want to make sure you have time to practice teaching yin out in the real world.Because it's only when you embody what you've learned, that all the juicy questions and reflections bubble up. And we want to be there for you when they do!So, between our two training weekends, we meet online to check-in on how you're tracking. We share ideas, hold space for and support you. If anything tricky comes up.
