What is Yin Yoga? Many will say it's a slow yoga class. But truthfully, it is so much more.
Yin Yoga is a beautiful meeting of traditional Indian Hatha & principles of Chinese Medicine. It is an intentional practice that can benefit tissues in your body often ignored by other styles of yoga and movement. It is a rich offering informed by modern science and ancient meridian theories that have unique importance in a modern world of constant movement & activity. It honours each individual's unique structure, supporting them to find stillness & peace.
Unfortunately, many people receive the impression that yin yoga is just "slow yoga," partially as so many teachers offering yin classes have no formal training in this style. And this prevents our students from accessing the deeper benefits of this potent practice.
Are you seeking supportive education in yin yoga to weave this wisdom into your yoga classes?
Learn how to teach safe & meaningful yin yoga classes, holding space for your students to melt into stillness with our upcoming Live Yin Yoga Online 30-hr YTT immersion, held over two weekends this November.

The course will be facilitated as a 4-day immersion, using teachable for a professional interface for class videos and extra resources, but lectures and tutorials will be delivered live via zoom to allow a more interactive learning experience. Students will receive the 80pg+ Yin section of my textbook. The only sections not delivered live will be the morning and evening asana practices. This course will support you to become a confident yin yoga teacher, as well as share skills to refine your overall teaching of any style.
There will be a daily quiz, final exam and all students must submit a filmed class as a teaching practicum so I can give you some personalized feedback.
Sincerely, I long resisted bringing my trainings online as my priority as a yoga educator is maintaining high standards and interactive support in all courses I offer. To bring the experience of my in-person YTT's into a virtual space, I have I converted my existing in-depth Yin Yoga course into a new online alternative that is primarily be delivered LIVE. And we always keep the groups small for a personal atmosphere and great discussions!
I’ve learned so many styles of yoga and yet I keep coming back to Yin as a way to soften into stillness and help students release stress and anxiety on a return to wholeness. Yin yoga is the practice of still, grounded stretched held for a longer duration of time to release constricted tissues & create a healthy circulation of energy. It helps us to release resistance, deepen awareness, become present and find surrender in the moment.
I also teach this course with an inclusive mindset, humbly focusing on the proper respect for the traditions and cultures that brought us these beautiful gifts. It’s very important to me to honor those who came before and for whom this practice is their birthright.

Online Yin YTT | Frequently Asked Questions
I want to take this course, but I'm not a Yoga Teacher & I'm not very interested in teaching....
Keen students are welcome! Many people take my educational courses for personal interest. There are no pre-requisites for this YTT. Just a love of Yin Yoga and experience practicing this style. You can take this course to learn more about Yin Yoga and build a more dedicated & knowledgable self-practice.
I want to take this course, but I'm not a Yoga Teacher (yet). I hope to take my 200-hr training soon but can I do this first?
Generally in this program, I get a mix of people who have completed their 200 or who are on the path towards it and all are welcome There are no prerequisites required and I’ve been told from other students in the same situation that they appreciated the foundation they received from this mini YTT when they then went onward to do their 200. Many felt more confident to pursue further training! I give a good introduction in this course to the anatomy of the spine, hips and shoulders so if you are new to anatomy, you will receive a basic overview. And we create a really warm environment and share lots of foundational information. There’s no energy of competition or judgment.
Can I start teaching after this course if I have not yet completed my 200-hr training? Regarding then moving on to teach, if you are yet to complete your 200-hrs, I recommend you begin teaching friends or family for experience or donation. Most studios, as well as yoga insurance providers, will require you to have completed your 200, which I agree is extremely important. But this program can still be a great first step. And you can still log this certificate with the Yoga Alliance to start building your experience. Then when you start teaching professionally, you will already have a niche offering to share.
Will I receive CE (continuing education) credits with the Yoga Alliance for this online training?
Yes! Based on the current Yoga Alliance temporary provision, you will receive a full 30-hrs of CE credits for this course (provided you complete your two homework assignments).
What do I need to complete this training?
Find a spot in your home that's generally quiet with a good wifi signal You'll need a device (laptop, tablet or phone) to access zoom and teachable. Just a basic zoom account will do! You can film your final practicum on your phone, no professional equipment necessary.
For your yoga props: yoga mat, 2x blocks, a blanket, a bolster, strap & rubber/tennis ball (or improv with whatever you have at home! its okay if you don't have all the kit. get creative.)
Will I get a textbook?
You will receive a comprehensive digital Yin Yoga Textbook emailed to you in advance of the course as a PDF and also downloadable within Teachable. You can print it if that's possible, but if that not an option no stress! A notebook and pens are helpful for extra notes.
What about technical difficulties?
Before the YTT, I individually contact each registrant to make sure they have easy access to all necessary platforms and content.
All of our live calls are recorded and added to teachable after our sessions. If you get logged out or have any issues, you can access all lectures later to get caught up. Your presence on the calls is still mandatory for certification, but you can just send me a message to let me know if you are having any challenges and I will do my best to support you. I know technical difficulties may arise and will be helpful and understanding.
How long will I have access to the course content on Teachable?
The course content will be available to you (all tutorial videos, guided practices, and lecture recordings) for a minimum of six months following the YTT.
(I do not offer a lifetime guarantee as I may not always utilize these platforms, however for the foreseeable future, they will defintiely be part of my work)
"I completed Eva's first yin on-line teacher training course and I really enjoyed this. The format was easy to navigate and the workbook was very in-depth. I would say if you are worried about doing an online format, not to be. It felt so interactive as we had sessions with our group virtually, although it was nice to have time on our own to do the yin classes assigned each day. It was great the group was small to allow participation from everyone and constant support from Eva throughout. I have never done a course with Eva before but I definitely would in the future; online or in-person when we are able to do so again. I feel I have learned so much over a relatively short space of time and it will work perfectly in conjunction with my YTT 200 hours course I am doing at present. " - Helen
"I highly recommend Eva's Yin TT to anyone interested in yoga- students and teachers. It provides a well-rounded introduction to anatomy, yoga history and philosophy, meridian theory and practical teaching considerations. The course gave me a fuller appreciation for my own practice and more confidence in my teaching. Eva's wealth of knowledge and comprehensive textbook offers so much valuable content that will give you lots to work with and mull over, plus a fab list of resources to continue your learning. The lectures evoke and encourage thoughtful discussion where all opinions and experiences are welcome. Eva is a patient and considerate teacher; she answers any questions with honesty and compassion. I am very grateful I was able to take part! Thank you. Love and lunges," - Mhairi
