Do you want to become a Yin Yoga Teacher?

With four decades of experience, Jennie and Melanie will guide you in a deeper knowledge of your own practice, as well as give you the tools to teach an inclusive and safe Yin Yoga class.

You will receive:

  • Plenty of time to reconnect with your own practice, and to recharge if you’re feeling drained.
  • The support and guidance of two experienced yoga teachers throughout the course.
  • Lots of practice in non-judgmental non-dogmatic environment.
  • Support in finding your own unique teaching style and your authentic voice as a teacher with expert constructive and supportive feedback.
  • Upon completion, you will receive a diploma, Yoga Alliance 50 hrs (RYS 300 & YACEP). This course also counts as Continuing Education (CPD) hrs with Yoga Alliance Professionals (UK)
  • The course is in English – but we always have several Swedish students joining our courses, so you’ll get the option to practice teaching and have group discussions in Swedish, in breakout rooms.

We will cover:

  • Theory and science behind the practice
    • Meridians and the energy system
    • Fascia
    • Updated research, the different aspects of yin yoga and how it is applicable to different body types and how personalities, and how movement patterns play an important part.
  • Anatomy
    • We’ll look into the specific areas of the body in more detail, how they move and respond to the Yin poses,
  • Teaching the poses: Our focus is very much on teaching the practice in a way that is inclusive and safe for everyone, making this a nurturing and healing practice, a way to connect and go deep inside; a way to truly relax and rejuvenate. For each pose we will cover:
    • How to teach yin yoga poses
    • How to use props
    • Modifications for each pose
  • Sequencing & Class planning
    • Sequences for specific meridians, for specific yoga poses (eg for back bends, opening the hips, twists, forward bends), and a general all round class
    • How to plan a class, when and how much to talk, what to talk about and themes.
  • Contraindications and modifications
    • How to develop your classes for conditions such as pregnancy, injuries and hyper-mobility, making the practice accessible for individual bodies etc.
