A unique 50hr Mindful Yin Yoga Teacher Training & Continued Professional Development Course.

With an emphasis on awareness of the present moment and focus on being in your practice, rather than doing your practice, the course includes in-depth instruction on all aspects of Mindful Yin practice and teaching.
The course is suitable for those with at least 2 years of Yoga asana practice and either an established meditation practice (not necessarily Mindfulness) or keen interest in learning how to incorporate Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction MBSR Meditation into your personal and/or teaching practice. You do not have to be, or have the desire to become a Yoga teacher, but you are expected to have a passion for Yoga. For those who are teaching, Continuing Professional Development CPD Units are required to maintain your status as a Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance.
Upon completion of this course and full payment, students will receive a Certificate of Completion documenting participation and attendance. In order to be a certified yoga teacher, students must also have completed a 200 hour Yoga Alliance Yoga Teacher Training.
Please come along with an understanding of the quieter Yin practices and a strong interest in committing to the further exploration of both Yoga and Meditation.
The class's and workshops balance essential theoretical knowledge with lots of skills practice and include the Yoga Alliance 5 educational categories of Practice and Training, Practicum/teaching experience, Anatomy (subtle and physical) Teaching Methodology and Philosophy. We have a short morning and afternoon tea break.
By the end of the course, you will have the skills and knowledge to deepen your personal practice. Yoga Teachers will also have wonderful new teaching skills to add to existing classes, along with new business opportunities with Mindful Yin classes. This includes the key elements of MBSR Mindfulness-based Stress Reduction meditation as they relate to Mindful Yin Yoga.
