  Yin Yoga is a powerful style of yoga that teaches us how to "be." These teachings are necessary for our current world state. 

This training is open to all beings focused on finding  balance and peace and helping others do the same. You do not need to have any formal yoga teacher training in any other style of yoga to take this training. All you need is an open heart and mind. 


This training is highly therapeutic. It is created for those who want to deepen their yoga practice and for those who want to be a yin yoga teacher. We will sit in each pose for anywhere from five  to ten minutes to gain deep insight to your self through the medicine of the poses. If this is not something you are comfortable with, it is ok. This has been shown to, at first, stir up feelings of extreme  discomfort followed by pure. bliss. Through sitting in discomfort, intense comfort follows. This lesson will follow you off the mat and into your life. Take this training to make serious, positive shifts in your life and

then help  guide   others do the same.

Due to the Covid 19 pandemic, this special training is needed more than ever. It will focus on you helping you be ok with being in the moment, teach you how to nurture inner patience and support others in being present, patient, and slowing down.
