Part 2: Friday-Sunday, July 26-28, 2019

Yin Yoga creates space for slowing down & returning to balance.

While most asana practice embraces the yang nature of effort & movement (like the sun salutation),

yin yoga embodies the complimenting qualities of softness, stillness, receptivity & inward awareness.

In Yin practice, long, grounded stretches help cultivate intuition & encourage surrender, releasing physical & emotional patterns that close us off.


In this teacher training immersion, we will explore the theory, science & anatomy of yin yoga, balanced with experiential & energetic aspects of practice. We will unpack contemporary research on fascia & healthy stretching.

We will also incorporate other traditional and therapeutic tools including pranayama, meditation, yoga yang, yoga nidra, restorative yoga and myofascial release. Our myofascial release sessions will share simple self-massage techniques with therapy balls, which will to release constricted tissue & complement & enhance our yin yoga practice.


The training is open to new and experienced teachers, as well as dedicated yoga students who desire to deepen their yin practice. Graduates will feel competent theming, sequencing and instruct meaningful yin yoga classes. Offering this unique expression of yoga to your students will create diversity within your teaching & support your students (& your own) busy life.

Hot Stone Restorative Yoga Workshop

What is Hot Stone Restorative yoga? It is a deeply soothing inward form of yoga where the body is placed in highly therapeutic postures that are supported with soft bolsters, blocks and cozy blankets while the mind is invited to slow down. As you relax in the poses, heated basalt stones are gently placed on the body. The heat from the stones gently penetrates into muscles, melting away layers of physical and emotional tension, resulting in a deep state of relaxation.
