Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings
In-Studio + Online Options

with Eva Maxine Hamilton,
E-RYT 500, YACEP

Upcoming course at RESET YOGA in Glasgow, Scotland

Yin Yoga is a beautiful convergence of traditional Indian Hatha & principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine. It is an intentional practice that can benefit tissues in your body often ignored by other styles of yoga and movement. 

 

Informed by modern science and ancient meridian theories, yin yoga invites us to slow down and sink deeper into each pose. Complementing more active approaches to yoga, this patient and passive approach influences our fascial networks, helping to reduce constriction in the inner fabric of our bodies. Anatomically, yin yoga also takes into account individual bone structure variation, supporting students to be adaptable in each posture. And perhaps most beneficial to our students, yin yoga offers stillness and internal reflection in our modern context of constant rush and activity.

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 soft but powerful practice. 

Finding Balance...

Inhale. Feel awakening and expansion. Activity and outward awareness. The heat and light of summer or the full moon. This is the energy of the yang. 

Exhale. Feel surrender and softness. A more intuitive and reflective state. The cool, quiet of winter or the calm grounding of the new moon. This is the energy of the yin.

 

The correspondences of yin and yang are always present, but often the busy pace and fullness of our lives prevents us from finding balance between our inner and outer aspects.

Yin yoga is an invitation to slow down, step into this moment , and find harmony within ourselves.

About the training

In our immersive trainings, we’ll take a deep dive into yin philosophy, variable anatomy, fascial health and the meridian system so that you can learn how to sequence and theme meaningful yin yoga classes that fully support your students (and yourself) to slow down, release stress and welcome peace.

 

During the training we’ll explore the theory, science and anatomy of the practice, balanced with experiential and energetic aspects of each asana. We'll unpack contemporary research on fascia, a sustainable approach to stretching, and an individualistic perspective of the body. You'll also learn about the foundational principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, the five-element theory, and how to work with the meridian lines in your yin practice and teaching. 

 

In our asana analysis, you'll explore an adaptable approach to instructing, propping and modifying classical and creative yin poses. Not only will you learn how to teach the shape safely but you’ll also learn why to teach each asana as you gain an understanding of the physical, emotional and energetic benefits.

Weaving these concepts into classes, you'll learn how to confidently sequence and theme yin yoga practices, as well as how to mindfully communicate and hold safe space. The training also incorporates other traditional and therapeutic tools including pranayama, meditation, yin yang yoga, yoga nidra, restorative yoga, and myofascial release.

This course is open to new and experienced teachers, as well as dedicated yoga students who desire to deepen their yin practice. Offering this unique expression of yoga to your students will create diversity within your teaching & support your students' (& your own) busy life.

The frequently asked questions about our yin yoga ytt

(We recommend you review this section prior to your registration)

 


 

I’m not a yoga teacher, but I love yin yoga and I’m interested in participating to deepen my own self-practice. Can I join the course?

Yes. Dedicated students are welcome and we would love to support you in developing your knowledge and love of this practice. Please note that while there are no prerequisites for this training, it will include a lot of theory and anatomy. We also like to advise all participants that regardless of whether you are a teacher or not, this is a professional certification program and everyone will be required to teach a short practicum in the final days of training. For our yin yoga training, this will involve teaching a short, focused 15-30 minute session to our group during the final days of training (guidance will be provided at the YTT). 


 

How does the online training option work?

Our online 30-hr Yin YTT is taught as a live immersion divided into two weekend modules. This is a condensed format, but still covers most of the content of our live modules. Each training day includes eight hours of course work, including live lectures and two guided practices. You will receive access to a course platform, a digital textbook, and our live zoom classroom. Generally, we run the online teacher training on Saturdays and Sundays (8am - 4:30pm EST/ 1pm - 9:30pm GMT). Full attendance to live lectures is required to receive certification. We love offering our training in this medium to allow teachers and students from all over the world to learn together. We currently do not have an online yin course scheduled, but you can share your details in the form above if you wish to be undated on future online courses. 

 


 

I am not an advanced practitioner of yoga. Or I’m recovering from an injury. Can I join the course? 

There is no prerequisite of physical flexibility or strength in order to join our course. You are welcome exactly as you are. Our courses do not elevate certain body types and we are always dedicated to creating training environments which are inclusive and adaptable for all bodies. If you are concerned about a specific injury or condition you are experiencing or recovering from, please speak with our course organizers. It will probably be fine for you to attend, but we want to make sure that the program is appropriate and supportive to whatever your present needs are.
