Yin Yoga Certification


100 Hours / 2 Weeks


Receive your yin yoga certification and get a solid understanding of yin yoga as a healing modality. In this yin yoga certification program (Yoga Alliance Continuing Education), you will learn all the essential elements of yin yoga with the focus on how to integrate the Daoist healing wisdom of the chi flow and the meridians in your teaching. We look into the yin side of yoga from all angles and dive in deep into the subject of how to apply yin yoga as therapy.

When you awaken and align your body’s underlying energy, you activate your innate process of healing and transformation. We will demystify how energy affects everything you do and feel—and show you how to work with your body and your mind. You will learn about acupressure points applied in the poses and sequencing according to physical or emotional issues. The alternative medicine aspect of Daoism offer the opportunity to deep healing and profound transformation. You will learn everything you need to know for your yin yoga certification and additionally get to know simple principles, tools, and practices that balance your subtle body—which is how physical, emotional and spiritual healing begins—so you can build vitality, unravel energetic blockages, and boost your immunity. The five Daoist Elements give you resources of inspiration for your practice, teaching, and your yin yoga certification. Mindfulness will be a subject in focus and we will guide you on how to integrate mindfulness principles to transform a yin yoga class into a meditation practice and a healing session.

By the end of this yin yoga certification course, you will not only receive your yin yoga certification but you will feel stronger, more balanced, healthier, and better able to thrive and flow in the life you are meant to live. In this yin yoga certification program, you will find the opportunity to practice teaching yourself and develop your own style in the art of teaching yin. Focus is to imply sequences according to the Daoist Elements, understanding their energetic value and the subtle art of creating the ideal environment for a transformational experience of body, mind and soul to take place.
