50 Hour Yin Yoga and Functional Anatomy 

Teacher Training 

This comprehensive training is available for both already qualified yoga teachers, wanting to build their skill set in order to teach Yin Yoga, and also for students with a love of Yin Yoga wanting to deepen their experience and knowledge.


This course will enable you to draw from a deep bank of knowledge and information regarding the body, skeletal variation, and meridian theory.


Most importantly after this course you will feel very confident in approaching students in your classes who need assistance or alternative postures, as your teaching skill set will be broadened immensely.


Fully accredited with Yoga Alliance, this 50 Hour Teacher Training emphasises the importance in having the sensitivity to ask the right questions, and work collaboratively with each student until they feel at ease.


You will develop skills in this course that go beyond the scope of Yin, and will be invaluable in all of your yoga classes as a teacher.
