Want to learn a style of yoga that’s focused on bringing balance – physically, energetically and mentally? Deepen your knowledge about yoga with a focus on yin yoga and gain the Yoga Alliance Certificate to share it.
Yin yoga is simple, but not easy. Sometimes being still is the hardest of all asana. The stillness of the floor-based, long held static stretches (with relaxed muscles) create the space to practice mindfulness and cultivate awareness. We embrace our own physical limitations rather than trying to fight against them and work with the body just as it is, and that in and of itself is an amazing thing. We are practicing acceptance, surrendering to gravity, connecting our body to a Zen state of mind. While we are expanding our flexibility and rejuvenate our joints, we reveal and release deep layers of tension held within your fascia. The healing wisdom of the Daoist philosophy provides insight and guidance to get in touch with our body, mind, and soul. We get a unique opportunity to release emotional tension, free stagnant or blocked energy, and to cultivate a peaceful quality of mind.
200hrs YIN YOGA THERAPY TEACHER TRAINING – YOGA FOUNDATIONS, YIN YOGA THERAPY, MERIDIANS & MINDFULNESS
In our 200hrs Yin Yoga Therapy Training you get to know all the basics of a classical yoga teachers training with the Parimukti Yoga School team (www.parimukti.com) and I will guide you through a journey through all the Daoist elements. You will learn all about the ancient wisdom of the main Acupuncture Meridians and Chi flow in the body. We will give you a deep insight in each element and the correlating acupuncture meridians and organs. Find out more about their subconscious value and the applied body acupressure points and Yin Yoga poses to help balance those.
We explain you ways to emotional healing and the releasing of energetic blockages in the poses. As we put our bodies in certain positions different meridian energy streams get stimulated and we activate our body’s own healing powers.
You will get to know more about additional tools and different meditation techniques to support this process. We offer you insight into the power of visualization and breath, Yoga Nidra, Mantras, Mudras and Chakras. There will be different meditations, acupuncture healing sessions and chanting circles.
To complete a basic understanding of yoga in all its variations we will look into the anatomy of the muscular and skeletal body, in the Ayurvedic Dosha system and share different aspects of yoga philosophy and foundations like the eight limbs and Patajalis yoga sutras. But besides all the theoretical information we will guide you to put this knowledge into action. There will be lots of practical teaching opportunities for every student and you will leave feeling confident to teach yin yoga yourself.
And last but not least in our Circles of Transformation we create a save space to connect and share. Together we open the gates to a long lasting transformation.

“I had no idea what to expect when I signed up for the Yin Yoga course. All I knew was that I loved the yin yoga classes I attended in Australia, and wanted to deepen my understanding and practice. The course surpassed my expectations, it was awesome. The teachers are deep with experience, knowledge and wisdom on yin yoga and how it relates to the body mind and soul. They expertly, clearly, and deeply cover the many elements of yin yoga, such as:
Asanas, the Meridian system, the Daoist 5 elements, the different organs of the body that the different Asanas effect. How to teach a class, and much more.
This information is repeated, gently again and again, to help our systems absorb the information.
The class itself is held in such an encouraging, warm, and supportive holding that overcomes any fears that may come up, and makes you feel that anything and everything is possible. The class was not only deeply informative, it was also fun, and the class I was with became very connected and supportive of each other. New, deep friendships were made. I can highly recommended this course to everyone.” Vinito
