Embodied Yin with Satu Tuomela & Lina Jarl

For those of you who want to become a Yin yoga teacher or deepen your own practice, deeply rooted in the understanding of somatics, Embodied anatomy & non dual Tantra.

What is Embodied Yin?

Embodied Yin™ invites us to explore our multidimensional capacities for healing by listening and sensing with the whole body-mind.

In Embodied Yin Yoga we create gentle (sometimes more dynamic) long held postures and somatics practices with an attitude of Maitri, loving kindness. The practices stimulate energy flow in meridians, energy channels, restore, rewire and replenish our nervous system.

During these Yang infused times, Yin, and the rebalancing of YinYang dynamics, help us to stop, reset and respond as we start again.

Want to become a Yin yoga teacher of the NOW with deeply rooted understanding of the tradition, non dual Tantra, somatics and Embodied anatomy among others things?

Hungry for cutting edge knowledge and embodiment of yourself in movement and stillness and then share it with others?

Who is it for?

Embodied Yin™ teacher training is for anyone to embark on a journey towards becoming a yin yoga teacher/facilitator. If you haven’t completed a foundational yoga teacher training, you wont be getting a certificate to teach just yet. This training is also for anyone already teaching yoga/movement/dance etc. who want more tools and a more embodied way of facilitating. You can also join to deepen your studies, if teaching is not in the books just yet.

Topics and practices:

  • Chinese medicine in relation to Yin yoga (the five Phases/elements theory and Meridians)
  • Trauma release, movement therapy
  • Embodied experiential anatomy and energetics
  • Trauma sensitivity in yoga
  • Taoism and Classical Non-dual Tantra (not Neo tantra)
  • In-depth study and understanding of the main yin poses + some unconventional poses
  • Explorations of Body-Mind Centering and other somatic practices
  • Tools for self-healing
  • The power of Touch- and what that power means + different ways to use props and give some healing assists
  • The power of holding space
  • Authentic teaching
  • Illuminating soundscape
  • and much more!

With a focus on the process of self-inquiry, self-discovery and transformation, students will deepen their own journey in Yoga, particularly in Embodied Yin yoga, while preparing to lead others on the path with skill and authenticity.

The full training (training material + some independent work) is +50h. The price includes the 50h yoga alliance certified training (part of the Authentic Flow 300h training), extensive manual, online content to study after the course and snacks.

Training is not limited to teachers. You will get a certificate on the participation.

All teacher participants that also finish the certification pathway (homework and practicum) successfully will get a certificate and can begin teaching Embodied Yin™ and “normal” yin yoga classes.

Authentic Flow / Embodied Yin™ is a RYS200 and RYS300 registered school with YA since many years and the training can be added as continuing education at Yoga Alliance for anyone that successfully finished the full training and certification process.


In this teacher training we will be practicing several different approaches and protocols into more somatic and embodied way of moving and being. These will include tools like Yin Yoga asanas, QiGong, free movement, Body-Mind Centering but also approaches from Music Therapy, Movement therapy, Authentic movement, Continuum, Somatic Experiencing and more.


Experiential anatomy is an embodied means of gaining increased somatic awareness and understanding. This approach to learning goes beyond conventional anatomy study methods that typically rely on images and diagrams to learn the map and function of the systems of the body. Experiential anatomy brings us into the felt sense of the actual territory through direct experiencing. With an experiential focus, we can directly discover, and embody, movement of fluids, bones, organs, meridians etc.


Traditional Chinese Medicine is rooted in the ancient philosophy of Taoism and dates back more than 2,500 years. In the universe the harmony between two opposing yet complementary forces, yin and yang, supports wellbeing and happiness. Disease results from an imbalance between these forces. The Five elements, or Five Phases: water, wood, fire, earth and metal, symbolically represent all creation and phenomena. The relationships between these elements explain the functioning of the body, how it changes during disease and how to best ensure that Qi (pronounced chee), blood and body fluids that are the most important fundamental substances necessary for life, continue to flow through the body, maintaining health.

“Chinese cosmology suggests that life’s movement is like a spinning ball on a flowing river, a tide of wind and water, a vortex revolving while rhythmically contracting and expanding ( Yin-Yang ) as we are carried along by the currents of Tao” - Harriet Beinfield
