From our former students
“I had the pleasure of doing a 200 Yin Yoga TTC with Alex and her team. All of them are amazing people who love to share their knowledge, I got so much information! Meridians, asanas, the human body and more. There wasn’t a question that was left unanswered. One of my favourite parts was that we began teaching ourselves as soon as possible, so we got to practice the theory first-hand multiple times. Their energy created a safe space to succeed and fail. Every student’s class was analyzed in order to give us a better understanding of how to improve according to our abilities and personalities. In the end, what I loved most was that Alex and her team are truly passionate about what they’re doing and are generous with sharing it.”

“As the course was progressing I was blown away by the level of integrity, devotion and commitment from all of you. As I think being back now and reflect on all that I’ve learnt and the experience in itself, it is truly one of the best things I’ve ever done in my life. I now know why my heart called me to it. Not only have a learnt so deeply about the physical aspects of yoga and understanding the benefits (as well as experiencing them) of yin yoga from a physical therapy perspective. I have also learnt so much more, about understanding how to cultivate deeper rest and relaxation, inner connection, focus, resilience, strength and so much more. I don’t think I knew what true stillness even meant before experiencing one of your yin yoga classes! You are a master of what you teach and share with insight, lived experience and passion. I’m not sure my life will be the same again after the past month but in a good way. Limitations/ fears or doubts in my mind feel like they have been replaced with a sturdy and stable core guiding me. Thank you so much for all that you do. It is life-changing and so needed in this world. I would recommend your course to anyone with the highest regard and wish you blessings, health, happiness, harmony, peace and abundance in all your future training. Warm Wishes, April“
April Barrie – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador UK
“It was amazing. I had such a wonderful time and I’m so glad I decided to come. I absolutely loved the training.
Whether you are already a yoga teacher or not I am sure you will find value in this beautiful training and practice. I have learned so much from Alex and I like how she teaches (both yin classes and theory classes). I cannot say enough good things about the Yin Yoga Therapy Training with Alex.
I had such a wonderful time during the training and I learned so much. I really think it was a fantastic teacher training and I’m looking forward to doing many more trainings and retreats with Alex in the future!”
Heidi Kokborg – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Denmark
“My Yin Yoga session by Alexandra was simply exceptional. Overall, it was a fantastic experience. I look forward to continuing my Yin Yoga practice.”
Manil Gupta, India
“I had no idea what to expect when I signed up for the Yin Yoga course. All I knew was that I loved the yin yoga classes I attended in Australia, and wanted to deepen my understanding and practice. The course surpassed my expectations, it was awesome.
Alex and Eva are deep with experience, knowledge and wisdom on yin yoga and how it relates to the body mind and soul. They expertly, clearly, and deeply cover the many elements of yin yoga, such as:
Asanas, the Meridian system, the Daoist 5 elements, the different organs of the body that the different Asanas effect. How to teach a class, and much more. This information is repeated, gently again and again, to help our systems absorb the information.
The class itself is held in such an encouraging, warm, and supportive holding that overcomes any fears that may come up, and makes you feel that anything and everything is possible. The class was not only deeply informative, it was also fun, and the class I was with became very connected and supportive of each other. New, deep friendships were made. I can highly recommended this course to everyone.”
Vinito – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Australia
The setting was an extremely peaceful and spiritual resort in Ubud, a little bit outside of the hectic hustle and bustle, with two yoga shalas and a lovely pool. Plus, our YTT group was the only people staying there (a combination of the 100hr and 200hr groups). I learned so much about Yin Yoga and yoga philosophy, had my first ever experience with teaching yoga, got to enjoy some amazing sights in Bali over the weekends, and Alex even gave us a mini acupuncture session at the end as a parting gift. Alex, Heidi and Jenny all had exceptional knowledge and wisdom about yoga and the yogic lifestyle, as well as a high level of empathy and lovingkindness towards every student. All of the students who were part of this training were also super kind and loving people with whom I quickly developed strong and meaningful friendships. One day towards the end of the trip, I ventured outside of the resort on our lunch break to explore Ubud on my own, and I fell and injured my ankle pretty severely. Alex made sure the staff cared for me and brought me my meals, moved me to an upgraded room on the ground floor for convenience, and supported me physically and emotionally throughout the rest of my time in Bali. This meant a lot to me especially because it was my first time travelling solo and I was overwhelmed by dealing with the injury in a foreign country. I was even able to still receive a modified version of my yoga alliance certificate. Overall experience was AMAZING!
Phoebe Pumilia – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador USA
“Feel super blessed to have had this opportunity to do a yin yoga therapy course. We live in such a yang (active) world. Always on our toes. So to learn and apply the concept of yin in life feels like a real treat. As I give vinyasa classes and I really loved practicing yin and I’ve found this combination of vinyasa and yin to be beautiful. They go really well together.
To get a deeper understanding from a real acupuncturist (Alex) and understand how the meridian (energy) lines work and how they are connected to the different organs and what are the emotions attached to it was a brilliant bonus! Specially since I’m also into bodywork. This was giving me a deeper insight to the anatomy from oriental medicine perspective. I have learnt and touched concepts that were “beautifully” integrated!
Forever grateful and SO in love with Alex!
She is a extraordinarily wonderful guide and creates such a serene and safe space for all of us to feel our best, gain the most and guiding in the best possible way. By letting things just flow into its rightful space! Truly living the Taoist way of life! I just felt super humbled and extremely grateful to have been a part of this journey! Thank you BODY-MIND-SOUL CENTER 💙”
Tara Kurian – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in India
“I really love everything about this training, the quality of the courses was very thorough, with teachers who know their field very well, in particular Dr Alexandra who is really amazing, sweet, and a powerful woman. She knows what she is talking about, I learn so much about yin yoga through her teaching. Then you have the impressive Jenny, who teaches Yoga philosophy, but also Shivananda yoga, the amazing Manuela who teaches meditation, but she is also an incredible organizer, and the talented Tina, who teaches yang Yoga. You feel very surrounded and supported in this course… We have the opportunity to learn very quickly the core of this instrument which is Yin Yoga. I am very happy to have taken this course and I recommend it to everyone.”
Noelle Rivas – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the United States
“Super grateful! To be honest, at first I was doubtful but something deep inside me told me that I had to go, so I did.
And I came back feeling reborn.
I know this sounds cheesy but I really feel like something clicked during this course and I started to understand what healing really means and what it feels like in the body. It was such an intense but beautiful journey.
The location is just perfect, I still remember the first yoga class we had and I did not want to close my eyes because the sight was just to beautiful, jungle trees (+ monkeys! :D) all around.
I immediately felt save, accepted and inspired. Mostly because of Alex and her loving vibes but also the other teachers, they are all very special with a lot of knowledge. I could feel this course coming from the heart, all so well organized and taken care off. That’s probably why this experience also went straight into my heart where it took a very special place.”
Lieke Vernooy – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the Netherlands
“I learnt so much more than I had expected, Alex was a passionate teacher with a lot of knowledge, and here crew was also great, it was a magical month. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to teach after because I had no experience, but after the first week in the training I knew I would. I feel so secure and ready to teach yin yoga therapy no. I am so grateful for every ours in this ytt. I am for sure coming back for more learning with Alex and her team for another ytt. I loved it. Thank you!”
Jannike K. – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Spain
“The Yin Yoga Therapy Teacher Training at The Suly Centre in Bali by Alex & Tina was just phenomenal. This was my very first International teacher’s training and it was worth attending. I’ve no complaints nor any regrets. It was beyond our expectations. Each and everything was just perfect. It was a magical journey. Jay cooked really healthy, nutrious and scrumptious food for us. Vegan and vegetarian all options were available. Each and every person was catered, fulfilled and entertained individually. The Suly Centre is a very beautiful, comfortable and a peaceful resort. The rooms are very cozy, clean and hygienic. The room service is very efficient and flawless. Rini, the owner of the resort is extremely kind and caring. They all made us feel like home. We all were very safe and secure. They took really good care of us. Just like mothers take care of their daughters. I would really highly recommend them. You can trust them blindly. They will never let you down. I vouch for them. I assure you that you won’t only learn professionally but also grow as a human being. They are family to me and I feel so blessed and grateful that I met them and learnt so much from them. They all are beautiful souls. Angels on Earth. Truly devoted, dedicated, passionate and selfless. I’ve immense love and respect for them. They hold a very special place in my heart because they are so compassionate, empathetic, kind, loving and their patience and understanding level is just impeccable. Their character, experience, knowledge and training is worth recommending. I’ll go million times to learn from them because they are the best teachers and trainers I’ve ever witnessed.”
Maha Abbas – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador Pakistan
“Life-changing experience! I had the most amazing time learning to teach Yin in Bali.
Both Alex and Tina were not only experts in their craft but also deeply passionate about this style of practice. I would recommend this Yin Yoga training to anyone looking to explore this profoundly healing practice. It not only deepens your physical practice but also nurtures your spiritual and mental well-being. It was a life-changing experience, and I am grateful for the wisdom it has brought into my life. This training has not just given me the confidence to teach but also to live my life with more Yin balance.”
Ellah C. – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador USA
“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.”
Marte Nerdahl – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Norway
“Alex and Heidi provided a wonderful yin yoga training for us, they have so much knowledge and experience to share. Thank you for creating an incredible space for everyone to share and learn. It really is such an incredible training, looking forward to joining more when they come up!“
Gayle Dyball – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Australia
“This was a wonderful experience for me for many reasons but what certainly stands out is the instructors dedication, love for yin yoga and passion to spread the message and make a difference. A truly holistic experience for your body mind and soul. Really well organized, super nice people with in-depth knowledge and plenty of valuable content was shared. I have very much enjoyed the whole setting and the group of wonderful people from around the world. An experience I will always remember with a smile on my face ☺️🙏.“
Mia Preuss – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador Switzerland
“Alex and Heidi and the entire Yin Therapy yoga teacher training was a truly transformative experience. Beautiful teachings, beautiful space. Alex and Heidi have a wealth of knowledge whilst also creating a space in which you can share your own and feel truly supported to step into your power as a teacher Couldn’t recommend it enough“
Coleen Mann – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador Australia
“I had been teaching yin as a self-taught practitioner for several years and felt the calling to be trained and confident in what I knew.
This retreat really stood out as a therapy program, that merged both western and eastern modalities. I really liked that Alex was an acupuncturist and is very knowledgeable in healing, breath work, eastern medicine and yin.
The location was amazing and I felt the schedule was well put together and manageable. There were a lot of amazing additions to our training, such as Kirtan, sharing circles and even an acupuncture circle. The staff at our accommodation was SO nice and the view, WOW. Thank you Alex, it was wonderful!”
Alana Kane – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the USA
“Wow. What an experience. Alex has created something so special with this training – the content and learning was second to none but the life lessons, connections and experience will stay in my heart forever. I also now feel so empowered and confident to teach yin yoga and that was mainly down to the advice and encouragement of Alex – so thank you! I would recommend this training over and over again. Heidi’s classes and yoga Nidra were also wonderful and both teachers brought so much energy and support to us all. Thank you, thank you, thank you!“
Charlotte Cullen – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador UK
“Thank you Alex for another extraordinary teacher training. Having completed my 200hrs with you I just knew I had to come back for another 100hrs with you and it was yet again a life changing experience. It was so well organised and the content was so complete. And of course the food was divine! I feel truly lucky to call you my teacher. And hope to be connected to Yin Yoga Therapy for a long time.
If you’re considering signing up for one of Alex’s courses and reading this- do it! You’ll be so happy you did!”
Adele Verdier – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador Maldives
“The Body-Mind-Soul Centre provided a high quality and thorough teacher training course. I have come away from Alex and Jenny’s professional teachings feeling more confident and ready to make the next step to teach my own classes. The environment of the school also provided a safe space to learn, share and grow with my peers. I made some fantastic bonds for life. I will be hoping to return to The Body-Mind-Soul centre for my future training needs.“
Kelly Nunn – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador UK
“If you are serious about teaching Yin yoga (or just gaining more knowledge), this training is for you. I did the 200hr yin yoga training but they offer other paths and 100 hrs special modules. Alex is very knowledgeable, very clear and structured; the way she teaches really prepares you and gives you the confidence to go out there and teach yin yoga. There are different teachers for different subjects and all of them were experts in their own areas. It was great to experience that variety of passionate teachers. Alex, generously shares with the students more than enough material to fill many, many hours of self-study! And more importantly, you’ll have ample opportunities to practice teaching so you leave the course confident in your ability and as part of a wide network of yin yoga teachers.”
Montserrat Gili – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from Ibiza
“Incredible online yin yoga training. Highly recomended! I participated in training online with Alex and four other amazing, talented, lovely women. I had no idea what to expect from training online but feel wholly satisfied and in awe, by the high-level training, conversations, and knowledge I gained from this intimate experience with Alex and the other participants.
I walk away with a wealth of insight and a new awakening to healing. I highly recommend this training to anyone with an interest in Yin yoga, you will not be disappointed! I hope to meet you in Goa, Alex!
Andrea Wilkins, Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in South Korea
“Alex provided a superb course to us. I have learnt a lot from her and even through the Internet, I can feel her love and passion to her work and Yin Yoga. She is so knowledgeable and willing to share with others. She is an amazing teacher and healer. Thank you Alex and I would love to see you again in India.”
“Inspiring and educational experience!”
I really enjoyed this 50hr Yin Yoga Therapy training! Alexandra is a very inspiring person and I feel grateful for all the knowledge that she shared with us. I’m looking forward to apply all the techniques in my personal life and to transmit all this wisdom throughout my classes. Thank you Alex and I hope we’ll meet again 🙂 love, Kathelijne”
Kathelijne Schaaphok – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Louxembourg
“I loved this online training and really recommend it. Even if it was online, we were really able to connect with Alexandra. She was such an amazing teacher and gave us so much knowledge and learning. I had an amazing time during the theory part as well as the practice which felt really amazing. Each day’s practices felt so great and gave us such a great understanding of yin yoga and the tools to teach it. So, thank you Alexandra for this amazing time and amazing training !”
“I recommend this training because it will give you more than you can imagine. Not only Alexandra is full of knowledge, very professional, experienced and thrall but she also inspires as a teacher, healer, someone who enricher and loves to share with who attends her training.
I was planning to come to Goa for training but attended the Online program instead. I must admit I am in awe of the vastness of the program teachings and I hope to come to Goa and meet in live. For some acupuncture too.”
Erika Milost – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Slovenia
“Impressive Wealth of Knowledge! I attended a 200 hour Yin Yoga online teaching course with Alex during Lockdown in June. It was wonderful to connect to Goa in India and Alex’s unique and uplifting teaching style from my office space in Dublin. I was impressed with Alex’s breadth of wisdom and knowledge of acupuncture, philosophy, Yoga and life. Her willingness to share expanded my heart and I looked forward to the days logging on. We were a group of five women from all over the world, meeting across time zones and language challenges. But we supported each other and felt safe. In the second week we each did a short teaching lesson which was a great way of learning. Alex provided detailed notes on the practice and origins of Yin Yoga which is a beautiful Yoga form. As a practicing Acupuncturist she has so much to offer in showing the healing of Yin Yoga postures alongside acupressure points. This is a very rich and nourishing course and has really deepened my practice. I hope to see Alex in Goa!”
Rosemary St.Leger – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from Dublin, Ireland
Yoga Nidra & Reiki YYTT
“I just completed the 100 hrs Yin Yoga Therapy Training in Goa and I loved it! After completing this training I did’t only got the confidence to start teaching Yin Yoga, but I also learned how to sequence a yoga nidra class and how I can conclude this in my teaching. For this money, you get a 80 hrs yin yoga and a yoga Nidra certificate but besides that, you also get a 20 hrs Reiki Level 1 and 2 certificate from Dr. Renuka. I did not have the intention to become a Reiki Healer but in this classes, I learned tools to protect my own energy in daily life. Alex shared so much knowledge about the yin yoga meridians, the scientific ideas behind yin yoga, how to sequence etc. Her knowledge about acupressure is a really nice extra as we learned how to integrate acupressure points in our yin classes. The manual is amazing and after this training, I still have a lot of food for the mind by reading and remembering all we learned. This training has a really good structure as the day also starts with meditation and a yang practice to balance all the yin yoga and yoga Nidra classes. I am very happy I chose this training as my 30th birthday gift with a lot of new knowledge to take back home!“
Annelien Gadeyne – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador Belguim
“The Yin Yoga Therapy Training with Alex was exactly what I was looking for. I gained a lot of knowledge about the traditional yin teaching (asanas, rebound), meridians, acupuncture points, Taoism and mindfulness. The training gave me a better understanding about myself and finding my own way of teaching.
Alex has a lot of knowledge and experience and is creating a nice group atmosphere. I definitely recommend this training.”
Julia Bauer – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from Austria
“This has been the best journey on and off the mat ever. Alexandra is absolutely amazing as a teacher and a person. She is the guru of yin yoga and leads you so gently on your path to becoming a good yoga teacher while transforming yourself on a personal level at the same time.
All the detailed and high quality materials provided will guide you on your teacher journey when you get back home.
Alexandra works with amazing teachers who all embrace you and have so much knowledge to share.
The place in the jungle is absolutely stunning, the staff are so helpful and you feel safe. We enjoyed delicious daily vegetarian food prepared with love while overlooking the beautiful jungle and ocean.
I will definitely see if I can join Alexandra somewhere in the world another time. Thank you for everything and for sharing your wisdom with us all.”
Signe Bøtter-Jensen – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Denmark
The training of Alex and the other teachers (Azuka, Dr. Renuka, Preet) was for me a journey of knowledge and self-healing. I stayed for one training (yin and yang in balance), which was perfect for me.
This whole month was just so well organized. We had yang classes in the morning and yin classes in the afternoon. The theory classes were super interesting and always taught with a spark.
The schedule had mostly the same structure with some nice workshops on Saturdays. Alex and Azuka were super flexible, to adapt the schedule for some free time events. Already in week 2, we had opportunities to lead some parts of the classes and experience ourselves, which was great.
The venue is located in the middle of nature, more or less a 10 minutes walk to the beach. Magical yoga shala, peaceful surroundings and basic but clean and comfy cottages.
Also big praise to the kitchen staff. The food was amazing and diversified.
All in all, I can definitely recommend doing a training with Alex and her team. It was so much fun and motivating to learn from them. Our group was very loving, caring and grounding as well. Alex attracts unique and inspiring people from all over the world, which gives the course a very special something and opened for me a safe and comfortable space to be. I´m deeply thankful and grateful for the opportunity! Yin within – Nina 🤍
Nina Blaha – about her ‘Yin & Yang in Balance’ training in Goa
“I was feeling a little fragile mentally due to some challenges in my life and after leaving another yoga training with a hostile environment.
I read many positive reviews about yin yoga with Alex and her website was informative and professional. I contacted Alex before I applied for a place and she was extremely helpful and provided me with all the information I needed to make my decision.
The experience was truly life changing. I didn’t want to leave and arrived home with fond memories. I highly recommend this training both for quality and excellent support. I may even go back and do it again!”
Rebecca Wahi – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador UK
“Alexandra you are the best yin yoga teacher and yin therapist. Thank you for facilitating my healing process. I am forever grateful and sending love and light always. I am so excited to start my first yin teaching session tomorrow.”
Jennifer – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador USA
“I have attended the Yin Yoga Teacher training in The Maldives and I can absolutely recommend it. Alex is an extraordinary talented teacher, I have learned much more than expected. Alex has inspired me to dig deeper into the topic. Can’t wait to have another course with her.”
Isabell Maron – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Austria
“Alex is an incredible teacher and full of knowledge that she shares in a very effective way. Jenny, her assistant is also fabulous and is passionate about yoga history, her teaching is very inspired.
The month-long course in the Maldives was one of my top 10 life experiences and the boat trips, arranged for our days off were superb. We got to swim with dolphins, reef sharks and snorkel the coral reefs.
The food was really tasty and all our needs were catered for.
Thanks Alex and Jenny for a magical month.“
Frances Claire Stehpens – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the UK
“I was at a point of transition in my life with family now grown and husband recently retired.
I ended up choosing this training as I was drawn to it based on Alexandra’s credentials and philosophies. The teacher training seemed truly to address the whole person; body, mind & soul. I have had a developing interest in the yin side of yoga and Alex’s teaching and training materials provided me with everything I need to go home and confidently teach a yin yoga class.
My experience at this training was life changing, I was provided with a safe space to recognize my strengths and weaknesses. I truly appreciated the night circles where we had the opportunity to explore healing modalities through dance, art, etc. I was able to find more clarity in my mind and heart, while learning that the wisdom of the body is sometimes greater than the mind. With Alex’s unique background in acupuncture, I feel that I received a solid understanding of the meridians and Daoist elements which are the foundational aspects of yin yoga. I would readily recommend this course to anyone who is ready to grow in their practice and their life!”
Rebecca Evans – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador USA
“I took this course wanting to expand my yin yoga practice after taking my 200hr Hatha YTT the previous month. Alex and Azuka complemented each other perfectly, Yin and Yang. The balance of classes and theory was great. We learnt the fundamentals of Yin Yoga, Taoist principles, key people and their contributions (Paul Grilley, Paulie Zink, Sarah Powers, Bernie Clark etc…), sequencing classes and more. Very detailed course manuals provided. The teaching element was done very well without any pressure, even those who did not intend to go straight into teaching enjoyed the process. The jungle shala was beautiful, immersed in nature and naturally kept cool during the day. The sky shala, where we had meals and special classes had the most incredible view of the jungle and ocean in Goa.
I was hesitant at first with travel right now, but was able to get into India easily (you do need a visa, covid test, air suvidh form) but it is possible! And Alex arranged an awesome driver Dinesh to pick up from the airport, and he continued to take us wherever we wanted to explore throughout the two weeks for good prices.
Alex and Azuka went above and beyond for us, it was a very personalized and special experience. I recommend arriving early or staying a few days after to enjoy the beaches. There are plenty of places to stay close to the training, really good restaurants in the area and some yoga holiday/retreat hotels also.“
Lucy Knowles – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador, USA
“I recently completed a yoga course, and it exceed my expectations. The instructor Alex and Tina were knowledgeable and created a welcoming environment for all students. The course covered a variety of yoga poses, breathing techniques, and mindfulness exercises. The instructor patiently guided us through each pose, ensuring proper alignment and adjustments when needed. The course also emphasized the importance of self-care and taught me valuable techniques to reduce stress and improve my overall well-being. Overall, I highly recommend this Yin yoga course to anyone looking to deepen their practice and enhance their mind-body connection.”
Simon Wang – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from Macau
“So happy I went with this training! I spent a lot of time researching different yin teacher training offerings, and I am so happy I went with Yin Yoga Therapy! After this training I feel completely confident teaching this practice.
Alex shared her vast knowledge and wisdom in easily-digestible chunks, and provided thorough manuals and resources for those of us who wanted to dive even deeper. This course provided what I wanted…an intensive experience guided by experienced teachers. We were able to practice teach more than a fair amount, which I really appreciate as many programs just throw information at you and send you on your way. Tina was also a delight. She carefully curated our mornings to give us the support and energy required for the long days. Her energy always put a smile on my face. She genuinely cared about developing our practice and teaching abilities in a loving way.
Even those of us quiet ones felt comfortable asking questions. If you are serious about embarking on a yin training journey then rest assured that Yin Yoga Therapy will prepare you to guide others in this practice.”
Kelly C. – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the USA
“If you are “a picky seeker as I am “looking for the top quality teachers that will guide you on your path– you do not have to look further no more. You are on the right spot here – In BODY-MIND – SOUL CENTER with Alex and her team of amazing teachers. Alexandra’s energy +deep knowledge of yin yoga are unprecedented and she shares more than that with you. She cares about your well being and she wants you to get the best experience possible.
As the name says (yin yoga therapy) – it is more than a training. It is a journey of self-exploration and path of self- healing at the same time, (and thanks to all teachers) in the safe space, where you can allow yourself to “let go of“.
Quality of the program is exceptional. Fantastic point is that students start teaching practise from 2nd week of the course – so there is lots of room for practice and picking up the practical details of teaching. The curriculum was divers and beside yoga philosophy, history and yin yoga practice, we learned different forms of meditations and breathing techniques.
The whole experience is intensified by the presence of the jungle. Thanks to Alex we were allowed to become part of the especially beautiful environment and share the space with all kinds of fascinating creatures.
The words can not express my gratitude to Alex and all the teachers present on my training – Jenny, Patrycja, Eleonora, Manjeet – you all are my inspiration. Hope I can carry and share the knowledge you shared with me. Namaste 🙂 “
Petra Pekarova – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Canada
“This training was absolutely enjoyable and packed with information! Alex has so much knowledge on so many areas of healing she is fascinating to listen to. I learned so much about Yin Yoga, Acupressure and philosophy and helpful wisdom along the way.”
Rosemary – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Ireland
“The yin & yang trip inside your heart! First of all if you have any doubts about travelling alone to India you can start packing your bags now. You are going to be safe and all is there organised for you. You only need to be ready to challenge yourself and to listing to your heart. Alex who is the guru of Yin Yoga will take you to unbeliever trip. With her you will leave your comfort zone forever and transform yourself to become a yin yoga teacher and to helps others like she did for you.
She works by her side with wonderful selected teachers who just embrace all your learning process and atmosphere there. You will receive amazing printed to support your study materials and teachers always will have time to answer your questions. You will have a time in a jungle where you respect the nature and your body and mind will follows. This all is complimented by fantastic, simply vegetarian food prepared freshly there. So if you ready for transformation and deep spiritual trip – Go !!!”
Agnieszka Baranski – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Berlin
“Highly recommended! It was a fantastic inner journey! Exploring the ‘I am’. Releasing emotions, feeling chi flowing. Very grateful to make this choice and to decide to give this training to myself as a gift. Living your true self… is possible (also you can learn at this training).”
Marianne Timmermans – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the Netherlands
“Like for most people all my plans of 2020 got an unexpected twist and turned out very different. My name is Kathelijne, I’m originally from Holland but live in Luxembourg (Europe) I am a yoga teacher since 2019, qualified in Hatha and Ashtanga. My favorite quote , probably the one I use the most in my classes is « the only constance in life is change » Buddha. Changes in life are for a lot of people very difficult to handle, especially the unexpected changes. We all had to learn to deal with them for the past year and yoga is definitely a great tool to adapt more easily to changes, because we gain in flexibility and strength in our body and mind. I was supposed to travel to India in March 2020 to complete my 300hrs training and seeking for more experience in Yin Yoga, as I am drawn by the therapeutic aspect of yoga. Well, those plans did not work out. Instead Corona arrived to us and before we knew what was going on, we where all locked down. Our studio in Luxembourg closed, like everything else and we switched to online classes. This scared me a lot in the beginning, but turned out to be a very great option and we even reached more people this way, as everyone could practice from home, nationally and internationally. And when then all the sudden Alex’s training appeared I did not hesitate and directly booked the training, without any regrets!
Alex is a great and fun teacher, extremely experienced and very knowledgable. She gives many examples that are easy to refer to in your daily, personal or professional life. She takes time to repeat things as many times as needed and pushed us to remember the theory 😉 I did not know much about Yin Yoga and basically nothing about the meridians, after the training I felt like I absorbed a whole new library and I am so grateful for all the experiences and wisdom Alex shared with us.
We had a very small group, only 4-6 people, so it was very familiar and we had enough time to ask all the questions we needed to be answered.
If you are looking to enrich your knowledge, rather for your personal or professional life, about Yin and the meridians I absolutely recommend a training with Alex. Our training was only 50hours but it felt like we got material for a 200hours training! It also felt very refreshing learning from a european woman, this was a big change for me compared to my 2 first trainings held only by indian men 😉 No offense and I’m not saying that one is better than the other, just different, a bit less traditional and strict. I felt very inspired and empowered to learn from such a strong women 😉 Thank you again Alex and I am looking forward to meet you for real in Goa…one day 🙂 distant hugs and much love, Kathelijne”
Kathelijne Schaaphok – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Louxembourg
“The teachers were first class. Not only were they excellent teachers they were first class human beings. I really enjoyed the location. The rooms are not luxurious but my room was spacious and it was wonderfully quiet. The Suly centre itself has everything you need in one location and there is a feeling of peace and calm as soon as you come in through the entrance. Outside is busy Bali with its traffic and noise but inside it’s serene The class experience was wonderful. I was the oldest by several years at 61. The youngest was 20 and the others in the group ranged in between. I was made to feel welcome and fully integrated into my group. Don’t let your age give you any doubts. Go for it. The yin yoga itself totally lends itself to the mature person while at the same time was loved by all the members of the group. I think it is an invaluable part off yoga as a whole entity.
The food was excellent and plentiful. The yoga shalas were great and there was also a meditation room where we went every morning to start our day. It abuts the rice fields where you can go for a walk and it’s so peaceful. The swimming pool is wonderful. The water was perfect for me and the views from it are stunning. This course not only met my needs for the yoga aspect it also filled some spiritual need I didn’t even know I had.
If you get the chance, go with Gela to the spiritual cleansing. It was a highlight.
Gillian K. – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from Canada
“Don’t think, just come! I highly recommend this Yin Yoga teacher training. My month spent in Goa was incredibly enriching. I have gained deep insight into the Daoist 5 Elements and Meridian energy flow in the body, and am now equipped with the teaching tools and confidence to take my students (and myself!) on a truly transformational journey.”
Camilla Marsh – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from South Africa
“Alex has an in-depth knowledge of meridians and acupuncture and this validates the yin yoga course she offers. It was a brilliant experience for me, hard work but well worth the results in the end. Eva taught me yin yoga theory, she was very clear and concise and has a very gentle but effective teaching approach. This style of teaching also applies to her yoga classes which I really enjoyed.”
Valery Gregory – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in UK
“Big time love to our Yin Yoga Therapy team and thank you for the learning experience with our beloved Body-Mind-Soul Centre ♡
When I first underwent my Reiki training I’ve never experienced Reiki before. I was sceptical to say the least 🤪 and I didn’t believe it was real. I honestly thought that it was all a bit woo woo 🤣
But once I had my Reiki training it opened up a world of new experience and healing for me in my spiritual journey 💗
I’d honestly say that it was just as impactful on my life as my yoga teacher training.”
Abigail Jones – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Manchester, UK
“This teacher training exceeded all my expectations. Truly an amazing experience on so many levels. Alex and Heidi created the most inviting and safe space for learning and spiritual growth. The training was deeply inspiring and I highly recommend it for anyone finding yin and the terapeutic aspects of yoga interesting..”
Ane Tronsted – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from Norway
“I loved my time in Goa. The training is absolutely inspiring. You’ll learn a lot about yin yoga, but besides that, Alex integrated also a lot of interesting workshops, like acupuncture, sound-healing, human design and adjustments/ massage techniques. The place is on top of a hill, in the middle of the jungle, but only a 15 min walk to the beach and the lovely little town Morjim. If you want to get inspired, in a lovely place, with amazing teachers: this is your course. Alex, thank you so much for this once in a lifetime experience.”
Crissy Mulder – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from the Netherlands
“I think that I met very few teachers in my life who have such an extended knowledge about the subject they teach as Alex. It was so impressive but also inspiring! And it’s amazing that after so many years in yin yoga she is still able to teach it with such lightness and fresh approach. I loved the classes, the insights, the amount of very useful practical tips. The materials provided are wonderful and I think I will get back to them all the time. But most importantly, the training was very transformative. That’s something I was personally looking for because I didn’t feel like a yoga teacher at all before the training and now I do. I feel confident and prepared enough to start teaching and spread to the love for Yin.”
Anna Wlazły – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from Poland
“From day one I was made to feel comfortable by the instructors. During the course, our group was united but also respectful of each individual’s need for space and time on any particular day. The structure of the course was great with theory and practice. The fundamentals of yoga and the foundations of yin yoga were explained exceptionally. We were provided textbooks, videos and practical work to help us in our studies from the start to give us a strong discipline and understanding.”
Sinead Ryan – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the Netherlands
““I did the 200 hours Yin yoga therapy training and it was definitely a life-changing experience. The teachers are very skilled and have lots of knowledge to share. I really feel like I have a solid base now in Yin Yoga, although this is just the beginning of a journey. The training really gives you the opportunity to practice teaching, which is great, if you have the ambition to make this your profession. For me personally, the training did not only provide me with tools to pass on to my future students, but it also contributed to my own healing. What further contributed to this is the very peaceful venue in the jungle and my own cottage for personal space. Also, more crowded areas and places to discover are not too far away.”“
Lisette Hirschhauser – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the Netherlands about the Body-Mind-Soul Centre in Goa
“The training was beyond expectations. Alex is an exceptional teacher and she shares her knowledge with passion. She knows what she’s talking about she will make sure you feel secure enough to step up and teach and will motivate you to dive deeper in the yogic way of life after the training.”
Wendy Stolmann – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the Netherlands
“Great teachers, lots of love, attention and quality. Alexandra and her team shared credible knowledge and experiences about yin yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Taoism.
The course really helped me find more peace and connect with myself, and feeling confident and inspired to share the yin yoga practice. I can highly recommend these high quality and wonderful trainings!”
Yorick Michelbrink – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the Netherlands
”The Yoga and Acupuncture Retreat was a week well spent tapping into the earth’s vibrations, connecting with one another and ourselves. We are ever grateful to Alexandra Denkinger, who was the ideal stimulus to guide the retreat towards achieving higher levels of well being, through Yoga and Acupuncture. She reminded us that the world is full of magical things, igniting within us the spark to listen intuitively, cultivate inspiration and clear the fog of confusion.”
Meghna Kapoor from Kyo Spaces, India
“I took part in the 100hr yin, yoga nidra and reiki training in Sri Lanka. It was an incredible course and a wonderful location, I highly recommend it. The knowledge and experience that these ladies have is truly amazing, they create a wonderful space for everyone to learn and participate, thank you so much 🙏✨🙏✨.”
Gayle Dyball – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador Australia
“The Yin Yoga Therapy concept offers wonderful teachings with a comprehensive and holistic approach to our eveyday issues in life. Of course there will always be a lot more to learn, but this training is a very good foundation to gain insights into our body and mind guided by an ancient wisdom tradition and inspiring teachers.”
Gela Zenker – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from Germany
“This training has been one of the best experiences ever. The knowledge that Alex has is impressive and she has a great way of teaching. Alex is so generous human being in there is a great feedback culture throughout the training. I learnt so much in these two weeks and also very practical guidance on how to structure and theme a class. That gives me great confidence in start teaching yin now. The connection we had as a group with the fellow students were special too. I am very grateful for this experience and leave with a bag full of new insights. “
Franzi Lehman – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the Netherlands
“I would 100% recommend this Yin Teacher Training to anyone, whether you are looking to become a Yoga Teacher or simply to learn for your own practice. I have learn so much about not only yoga but also about myself. I know what I have learn I will continue use and benefit form for the rest of my life.”
Nikoline Ekelund – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador USA
“If you want to excel in the Yin Yoga community then this is the course to do. Diving deep within the meridian and Daoist philosophy will give you that ‘edge’ as a yin yoga teacher. “
Abbey Brinklow – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in the UK
“I did a 100 hrs yin yoga therapy teacher training in Goa. Highly skilled and simpatico teachers like Alex and Azuka, very interesting classes in theory and practice, very friendly staff and great food made my day. Great nature, beaches, not the last time I have been here.
Defenitely the best teacher training I did. “
Goetz Schmidt-Rimpler – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Germany
A comprehensive introduction to Yin Yoga for students who wish to build a solid foundation of authentic Yin Yoga theory and practice with its contemporary possibilities. Alex, is a generous and professional teacher able to tune in with a wide range of student profiles and who shares her in-depth knowledge from a place of passion, making it accessible and easy to memorize.
I personally love the way the course grounds theory into practice and how the wide curriculum opens up for extensive opportunities of further self-study through the generous course material that Alex shares. I arrived new (and sceptical) to Yin yoga with a background teaching Yang classes and was looking forward to an all-around Yin/Yang week not only as a course but also as a personal treat…Now I know why Yang needs Yin and vice versa and I discovered an element within Yin which I wish to dig deeper into going forward as a teacher.
Every morning started with a creative Yang class as delivered by the kind-spirited and experienced teacher Tina who skillfully build up classes from gentle to fiery across the two weeks, allowing entry-level students and advanced Ashtangies to ease into our bodies across the weeks. Tina also brought daily end-of-the-day classes with mindfulness exercises and elements of dance which creatively complemented the overall training. In short: THE Yin Yoga training that I’d choose again if I had to redo it.
Jenny – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from Sweden
The whole experience was perfect. First, the training is very qualitative, the content is delivered in the best way with lots of authenticity and generosity (and in a joyful atmosphere). The classes schedule is nicely done between yang practices, theory, yin practices and opportunity to teach, moments of sharing, time for study, time to discover another way to do yoga (karma yoga – beach cleaning, acro Yoga, meditation…) and some flexibility for us to enjoy our wonderful surrounding. Which is actually showing us what a balance between Yin and Yang is.
The location is a paradise and it was magical to discover the Maldives this way. Staying more than a few days allowed us to embrace the local culture and enjoy some excursions (like diving, swimming with sharks…). Food was super yummy, accommodation was basic though very functional. The island is tiny and everything is within walking distance which is good so we can completely focus. I am so happy I got to meet Alex and her team. I would go again tomorrow!“
Ambre Mahieddine – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from France
“I have been attending the 200h yin yoga teacher training with Alex and her amazing team this summer on Bali.
I really can’t recommend the course enough! If you are thinking about doing a yin yoga teacher training, stop thinking and apply for this course right away.
I attended the course on Bali, more specific at the Suly Resort. It was kind of a magical place; old in a mysterious and fantastic way, but very beautiful and a great location for a yin yoga teacher training. Close to Ubud center (you could walk there following a path through the rice fields or take a scooter ride on the main street), but still located in very peaceful and quiet surroundings away from the main street and traffic. At Suly there were 3 nice and open yoga shalas, a meditation pyramid, a restaurant (with delicious vegan food cooked by Alex’ husband!!!), various study spaces and also a swimming pool to relax by and cool down in the free time. All in all great location!
I did roughly 40 hours of the course online (3 weeks in person and the rest online). I really liked this, because the 40 hours could be managed in my own pace and I could only take 3 weeks off from work. The online course was split into anatomy done by David and philosophy done by Jenny. Both managed to make it interesting and interactive which I really liked. My favourite part of the online course was Jennys inclusion of meditation in every lesson. This was my first time getting a routine of meditating; so thank you for that Jenny!
All in all, I think everything about this course was amazing! I had high expectations and still Alex, Tina, Gela and the rest of the team managed to impress me :)) I couldn’t have wished for a better first time teacher training experience.
And if you are totally new to teaching, like I was, don’t let that stop you. The teachers made the theory easy to comprehend and the space very safe, honest and open, where it was more than okay (almost expected) to make mistakes you could learn from! The most important thing is that you want to learn, study, open your heart and get out of your comfort zone.”
Laerke – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador in Denmark
“My yin yoga teacher training was truly a transformative experience. Over the course of three weeks, their unique teaching styles and energies left a lasting impression on me. Alex, with her deep knowledge and peaceful demeanor, created an environment that fostered both relaxation and learning. Her expertise in yin yoga was evident, and I found her teachings to be incredibly insightful. Tina, on the other hand, brought a contagious passion and vibrant energy to every session. Her enthusiasm was infectious, and I could feel her genuine love for the practice of yin yoga. Her ability to motivate and inspire us was truly remarkable, and it kept me engaged throughout the training. Together, Alex and Tina formed the perfect balance. While Alex provided the depth of wisdom and serenity, Tina injected a sense of excitement and joy. Their collaboration created a nurturing environment where I felt safe to explore my practice and challenge myself. The three weeks of training were intense, but incredibly rewarding. I learned so much about yin yoga, as well as about myself. The training gave me a deeper understanding of the practice, and it transformed the way I approach my own yoga journey. I am grateful for Alex and Tina’s guidance, as they played a significant role in shaping who I am today as a yin yoga practitioner.
Hermina He – Yin Yoga Therapy Ambassador from Macau
“This training is exceptional, and it has be designed with love and generosity. I did not expect to learn so much in three weeks! Not least, I learned how to craft, and teach, a yoga class grounded in mindfulness towards a potentially transformative physical and energetic experience for the participant. Alex facilitates this capacity in her students by modeling the skill in her yoga classes and in her lectures where she is exceptionally skilled at explaining complex content in a practical way and fun way. She also does so with genuine warmth and care. Alex delivers this course in collaboration with Tina and they make up the dream team! Experiencing Tina’s yoga classes, infused with her contagious passion for yoga and movement, was a privilege. My practice as well as my understanding of asanas, sequencing, and anatomy, improved significantly through Tina’s teaching. Beyond that, she is an inspiration! Overall, the course was a beautiful, enriching experience. The training is not easy but the schedule is carefully crafted and balanced to enable deep learning, reflection, personal development, relationship-building and new experiences, all towards a feeling of immense accomplishment by the end. I highly recommend!”
