€1,650.00 – €2,899.00
Yoga Foundations & Yin Yoga Healing with Daoist Elements, Meridians, Acu Points & Mindfulness
Want to learn a style of yoga that’s focused on bringing balance – physically, energetically and mentally? Get all the knowledge to start teaching with a focus on Yin Yoga in this month-long training and gain the certificate to share it.
For an embodied experience of the theory behind the practice students will have the opportunity to teach from the second week onwards. Stretched over 4 weeks there is time to practice teaching and the student will leave this training feeling confident to lead a yin yoga therapy class.
Yin Yoga waves all layers of our being -body, energy and mind- into a seamless whole, allowing a sublime experience of stillness and peace. The stillness of the long held static stretches with relaxed muscles in Yin Yoga allows the space for awareness and the opportunity to reveal and release deep layers of tension held within your fascia. The healing wisdom of the Daoist philosophy and the Meridians provides insight and guidance.
In this Yin Yoga teacher training you get an unique opportunity to learn to release physical and emotional tension, free stagnant or blocked energy, and to cultivate a peaceful quality of mind. By practicing Yin we are practicing acceptance and surrender, connecting our body to a Zen state of mind and we create the space to allow energetic and physical healing to take place.
In our 200hrs training you get to know the basics of a classical yoga teacher training plus we will guide you through a journey through all the Daoist elements and their healing wisdom. There is no specific prerequisite required but an open mind and commitment to put some work into your personal development. You will learn all about the ancient wisdom of the main Acupuncture Meridians and Chi flow in the body. We will give you a deep insight in each element and the correlating acupuncture meridians and organs. Find out more about their subconscious value and the applied body acupressure points and Yin Yoga poses to help balance those. In detail we explore each body target area and its correlation with the meridians. We explain you ways to emotional healing and the releasing of energetic blockages in the poses. As we put our bodies in certain positions different meridian energy streams get stimulated and we activate our body’s own healing powers.
You will get to know more about additional tools and different meditation techniques to support this process. We offer you insight into the power of visualization and breath, Yoga Nidra, Mantras, Mudras and Chakras. There will be different meditations, acupuncture healing sessions and chanting circles.
To complete a basic understanding of yoga in all its variations we will look into the anatomy of the muscular and skeletal body, in the Ayurvedic Dosha system and share different aspects of yoga philosophy and foundations like the eight limbs and Patanjalis yoga sutras.
In our Circles of Transformation we create a safe space to connect and share. Together we open the gates to a long lasting transformation.

An experience of a lifetime! It’s hard to find the words to describe this training. It was a mix of challenging, soul searching, beautiful, safe and so many other things. I truly feel so many of us came out the other side with a different view on life and yin yoga. Alex has such a beautiful approach to TCM and yin yoga, and she teaches it in a way that challenges the experienced and makes it understandable for beginner. The teachers are all very knowledgeable and inspiring. I loved every minute of my time here, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a yin yoga training.
