Yin Yoga Teacher Training Certification Course
These are the only official Yin Yoga Teacher Training Certification Courses authorized by The Yin Yoga Institute and taught by the founding master of Yin Yoga, Paulie Zink. Learn to teach the art of Yin Yoga as it is intended to be taught!
The 100 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training Certification course is presented in two separate one week long sessions: Session 1 and Session 2
The purpose of Yin yoga is to grow the body flexible and promote healing, to develop our flow of energy, and to enliven our innate ability to move with fluidity, power, and grace.
Paulie’s approach to yoga is about following our own individual path. Paulie gently guides students in opening to their intuitive hearts and discovering the artist within, and in trusting and expressing their own unique way of being in the practice.
In this training participants will explore both the yin and yang aspects of yoga postures that are inspired by the movements of animals and that activate the elemental forces contained within our energetic field. Through this process we fully engage our connection with the natural world, we awaken to our spontaneous and playful spirit, we transcend the boundaries of assumed limitations and learn more than just a technique for doing yoga, we learn a way of being yoga, of living it in our day to day lives. We can then bring these gifts to the lives of those we touch.
Participants receive a 41 page Yin Yoga Teacher Training Manual which includes 18 pages of illustrated postures.
