Yin Yoga
What is “Yin Yoga?” The answer is not fully discovered through words. To really understand Yin Yoga, or any form of yoga, one must experience it! Immerse yourself in a weekend Yin Yoga Certification program that is designed to be both personally and professionally transformative.

Explore Yin Yoga through the perspective of Yogic philosophy. Enhance your own personal practice through the lens of Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy. Teaching skills will be cultivated as you gain insights into your own personal practice coupled with guidance on intelligent sequencing from a functional point of view.

The program is led in three modules (practice, teaching methodology, and mentorship).

*Please note that the Traditional Chinese Medicine section of the program does not count towards continuing education credits with Yoga Alliance.
