Yin yoga is becoming increasingly popular, with a growing awareness that our often over-dominant, active, yang lifestyles need the balance of the more restful, deeper and slower practise of yin yoga. This training course will give you the knowledge and skills to bring yin yoga to your students, as well as deepen your own experience of the practise.

This course is open to all qualified yoga teachers and is also an additional optional module for those completing Amy's 280hr foundation yoga teacher training and wish to bring their accreditation to 300hr.

Non-yoga teachers looking to deepen their own personal practise and understanding of yin yoga are also welcome to complete the course, but you are only able to teach yin yoga to others if you are already a qualified yoga teacher.
