With ever-growing interest in Yin yoga, this is a unique opportunity to plunge into deeper exploration of the quiet, insightful and empowering Yin yoga practice.
We believe that each person is unique, and so should be your yoga. We also believe that practicing poses (asanas) becomes even more satisfying if we understand them and can make informed choices.
We would like to give you keys to the anatomical and energetic principles behind Yin yoga poses, so that you are able to practice in a way that suits You best.
While Yin yoga practice might seem simple, its underlying concepts are less so and have far-reaching consequences. Therefore, we offer an extended 100h course where we can take time to clarify and assimilate these concepts.
The course will take place mostly on weekends. Each bloc will be a mix of lectures, interactive exercises and asana practice. Between the study weekends you might be assigned reading and/or homework. The main language of instruction will be English. Questions can be asked also in French or Dutch.*
As this is the only 100h Yin yoga training in Brussels, we expect significant interest. Therefore do sign up quickly!

Two years of consistent asana practice of any Hatha yoga style (for example, Ashtanga, Vinyasa, Power, Iyengar, Hatha, Sampoorna, Sivananda, Anusara, Restorative or Yin yoga). Curiosity and open mind. If you are not familiar with Yin yoga, we recommend taking at least three classes prior to the beginning of the course.
Dace (RYT 500) has been studying with Yin yoga founders Paul and Suzee Grilley since 2010. In addition, she has completed several other Yin yoga teacher training courses with internationally renowned teachers such as Bernie Clark (2014), Joe Barnett (2016), Sebastian Pucelle and Murielle Burellier (2015) — in total, almost 700h of Yin yoga TT-level courses, as well as several workshops with Sarah and Ty Powers.
While she loves sharing her enthusiasm for Yin yoga and functional anatomy, Dace’s deeper passion is to help persons reconnect with the inner truth of their body and soul.
