30 hours - Level 1 training overview

​The Yin Yoga 1 training is suitable for yoga students of all levels and yoga teachers who would like to deepen their practice and understanding of yoga and like to explore and learn a complementary practice to all the dynamic yoga styles. This training will amplify both your knowledge about and your practice of yoga, therefore supplementing the unfolding of your spiritual path.

After this 30hrs Yin Yoga 1 training you will have all `basic tools` to teach a Yin Yoga class with the 35 Yin Yoga Asanas and to give your students individual assists and variations in every pose. And of course you will do your own Yin Yoga practice with awareness and respect to the limitations of your body. You will understand why two people will never experience the same yoga posture in the same way, and the same pose may look different on every person due to the individual bone structure.
Total 30 hrs of profound Yin Yoga practice, theory and exploration.​
