Yin Yoga Teacher Training Yoga Alliance
At the Body-Mind-Soul Centre, a registered yin yoga teacher training Yoga Alliance school, we are honored to collaborate with teachers from a wonderfully diverse and experienced background.
The ethos of the Body-Mind-Soul Centre is to apply the teachings and practices of the yoga tradition to go on an exploration to investigate the relationship of our body, mind, and soul. Ultimately to gain clarity, understand our nature, create harmony between us and others, and experience freedom and joy.
In a Taoist / Zen way, we emphasize the value of breath, meditation, and intuition rather than ritual worship or rigorous following of old scriptures and perfect alignments. Everybody is different, so how a pose feels precedes how it is supposed to look.
At the Yin Yoga Teacher Training Yoga Alliance school, we see teaching yoga as an art fuelled by authenticity and creativity. A student’s personal practice and the understanding that follows subsequently spark the inner teacher and sharing with others will come naturally and spontaneously.
The Body-Mind-Soul Centre, Yin Yoga Teacher Training Yoga Alliance school acknowledges and emphasizes that every student and teacher has his or her own unique presence, energy, and teaching style. The Body-Mind-Soul Centre provides an ideal environment for learning and a practice process, where yoga teacher training courses are presented and practiced in depth.

Alexandra Denkinger M.D.(Acu)
Founder of The Body-Mind-Soul Centre (RYS), Yin Yoga Teacher Training Yoga Alliance school, and creator of Yin Yoga Therapy™ is an inspired Body-Mind-Soul Bio-Hacker, dedicated to helping people empower themselves to live the most authentic, healthy life possible.
As an all-time seeker on a soul-searching journey, she traveled the globe and came in touch with many different healing systems and yoga styles. Eventually, she moved from her native place Germany to India to immerse herself in Ayurveda and Yoga nearly two decades ago.
In her Yin Yoga teachings, she integrates the ancient healing wisdom of the Acupuncture Meridians and the Chi flow in meditative yoga practice. In a Daoist/ Zen way, the focus is on the value of breath, insight & intuition – supporting a lifestyle that feels in alignment with our deepest self.
Alexandra lives in Mandrem, Goa, where she offers counseling sessions and a variety of holistic treatments. Here she looks at the patient’s whole system, environmental, emotional, and physical. She breaks down complex theories from different healing systems into digestible chunks for use in our daily life and offers practical information and encouragement to feel healthy, vital, joyful, and free.
Alexandra about herself:
”I like to see myself as a Body-Mind-Soul Bio-hacker. I counsel people and I help to heal their wounds. Physical, but mostly emotional. I did not intend to do this. When it came to me though, I knew it is my calling. I am passionate about it.
For me healing ourselves is our responsibility and an expression of environmental activism. We are healing the world by healing ourselves. And healing is actually very simple, it is an uttermost natural thing. Of course not everything can be healed, but most things thought incurable can be. Every organism has a basic instinct to be healed.
Energy flows where attention goes. I believe the good life is a matter of mind and soul and open to everyone. The body never lies. I listen, look and reflect to help you to activate your own healing abilities.
My goal is to empower you to live the most authentic, healthy life possible. A life that feels in alignment with your deepest self. Nothing brings me more joy than watching this happen.
I live and work with dedication, extraordinary intention and the spirit of liberation from convention”.
Right after her first yoga class in Laos in 2015, she made the yogic-lifestyle part of her daily life. In 2016 she completed her first yoga teacher training and ever since she is fortunate to explore different yoga styles during conscious festivals, and workshops, living in different ashrams and yoga-oriented communities. She quit her job and life in Germany to become a full-time pilgrim, searching for truth, answers and the meaning of this precious human life.
Curious to combine mindfulness meditation and yoga asanas she found yin yoga – a wonderful start in a new relationship! Yin yoga for her is a unique tool to support physical exercises and mental relaxation, combined with the Philosophy of Daoism – going with the flow and radical acceptance- that’s what she practices and teaches.
Yoga, Meditation, and Yoga Nidra are playing a big role in that request and she is very grateful and happy to share this love with her students. Her YinLove is sparkling and she is offering her signature classes Yin Yoga & Sound healing with success all over India.
Jenny has been yoga practitioner since her adolescence and is now already 12 years into her journey of her personal sadhana. She has been teaching pranayama, asana and yoga philosophy globally since 2014.
Besides teaching our online yoga philosophy course and guiding our morning practice classes, Jenny is facilitating transformational conscious connection games and sharing circles, incorporating connective communication, movement medicine and bodywork into our training program. The practices with her are an integration of more than 8 years of teaching, vast studies, research & authentic experience in yogic healing arts and movement modalities. Students appreciate her encouraging vibe, skill set and variety of offerings she always brings to the space.
Along with Alexandra Denkinger M.D.(Acu) she has synthesised techniques and created Aerial Yin Yoga Therapy™ modality – a method of bridging the science and spirituality of Yin Yoga to the Aerial Silk Hammock. The main goal of this aerial yin practice is to provide optimal health and well-being through the alchemy of long holds, gravity, inversions and body-mind awareness.
Dr. Renuka Yadav

She pursued her passion for Ayurved and Panchakarma by taking formal training in Panchakarma from Sane Guru Rugnaaya in Nashik and Vaidyaratnam in Kerala. She shares her profound knowledge of anatomy and Ayurveda with our students in Goa.
She has been associated with many reputed Ayurvedic Clinics and Centres, have helped many patients with their health issues but ultimately was never satisfied with the way Ayurved was projected and Wellness therapies were addressed. Her passion to promote Ayurved as a science and not as a product and drove her to establish the only government recognized Vocational Training Institute in Goa in the field of Ayurved, Spa and Wellness.
Her personal quest for knowledge and enlightenment has led her to pursue various modalities of healing. She is a Pranic Healing Arhat, a Reiki Grandmaster, a Clairvoyant, a Crystal Healer, an Aroma Therapist, and a Tarot Card Reader. She offers the best out of all of them in her healing sessions. But beyond all, she is a wonderful, humble being who simply loves to nurture. You can also book an appointment with her for a pulse diagnosis, an Ayurvedic consultation, an authentic treatment plan, an energy healing massage, or maybe just to speak a few words.
A Healer… In its true Essence!
