Yin Yoga Fundamentals Teacher Training
During this training you will learn how to teach Yin Yoga from a functional approach rather than an aesthetic or performance-related approach to yoga, with the aim of creating a meaningful experience for yourself and your students, to explore a personal yoga. You will study Yin Yoga with an approach to promote awareness of what is happening in the whole person through the body. The training is aimed at those who want a deeper understanding of Yin Yoga.
