RELAX. RELEASE. RESTORE.

Learn the Incredible Healing Power of Yin Yoga with our 100 Hour Teacher Training. The world moves and changes at such a fast pace that we find ourselves chasing for answers, peace, health and happiness, externally. Yin Vikasa provides the precious time and space needed to look within; to get to know your body and your true self. Yin Yoga teaches you to relax, to release trapped emotions and stress, and to restore health – and restore the REAL you.

WHO IS THIS TRAINING INTENDED FOR?

- You are ready to dive into a an enlightening journey.
- You feel a pull to experience the magical energy of Thailand.
- You are motivated to heal using the incredible power of Yin.
- You are curious to experience a unique bonding.

We welcome you to join us, no matter what your background, experience or intention once you’ve completed the course. Our teaching program includes daily yoga practice, lectures, workshops, time to practice teaching skills and techniques, and adequate rest and relaxation. Unlike a local Yoga Teacher Training, where you go to classes and otherwise live in your normal surroundings (with the stress and responsibilities that come with it), this course is designed to be all-inclusive and immersive, so you can focus purely on your growth for the life-changing time you are in Thailand.

WHAT IS YIN YOGA?

The key benefit of Yin Yoga is that it allows us to access the calm, quiet centre that lies within. Due to our busy, chaotic, stress-filled modern lives, stillness and patience are rarely practiced. So accessing this inner softness and kindness is not just a relief, but necessary for many, to balance our mind and body. Yin Yoga is a slower, more subtle, more meditative and introspective style of yoga. This change of pace allows us to tune-in to our thoughts and feelings more easily, going deeper into the mind than other faster paced styles and working with deeper layers within our body.

Yin Yoga has a big focus not only on the physical body but the subtle, energetic layers that we can’t see with the human eye. While there is a lot of attention placed on connective tissues, Yin Yoga also looks into our energy points and channels – bringing together traditional Hatha Yoga and Chinese Medicine. Yin Yoga examines in greater detail the mental aspects of yoga. Cultivation of stillness and the Buddhist concept of mindfulness, is one of the main intentions of a Yin Yoga practice. Practicing Yin Yoga alongside the more active, dynamic styles, will give you a more balanced level of health - yin in harmony with yang.

WHERE WILL THE TRAINING TAKE PLACE?

The 100 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course takes place at VIKASA Yoga Retreat on the tropical island of Koh Samui, in the Gulf of Thailand. It is said to be built upon a bed of rose quartz crystal, giving it a unique healing vibe, perfect for Yin Yoga. Koh Samui is a lush, green island and you’ll be surrounded by soothing plant-life such as coconut trees, banana leaves and the perfumed scent of frangipani flowers. You’re never far away from fine, white-sand beaches, clear azure ocean and breathtaking natural waterfalls set amidst thick jungle.
