"When you undergo a transformation, the world is unchanged. Your environment, situation and immediate circumstances are all the same. How you feel, see, listen, think and act are what have been altered, and who you are and how you relate to individuals and things in your life is what shifts. Imagine feeling completely renewed without having to change a single thing about your physical reality."

- BARON BAPTISTE, Founder of Baptiste Yoga

Yin Yoga Teacher Training - March 20-22, 2020


A yin yoga practice is designed to balance you: physically, mentally and energetically. Inspired by the teachings of hatha yoga, Taoism and Traditional Chinese Medicine, yin yoga is a complement to a stressful, active fitness routine. In this 30-hour training, you will practice and learn to teach the foundational yin yoga

poses. You will gain a concrete understanding of the physical and energetic elements of a yin yoga practice. You’ll leave this training with a well-developed understanding of the physiological effects yin yoga has on joint health and connective tissues. This training is suitable

for yoga teachers and practitioners of all experience levels. Upon completion, you will be able to safely and confidently sequence and lead your own yin

yoga class and receive a yin yoga teaching certificate.


This course will count toward Yoga Alliance continuing education credits.

  • The physiological effect of yin yoga: fascia, connective tissues and joint health
