This intensive level II 50-hour training is a certified stand-alone teacher training course and is also the second of four modules that make up Yin Therapy’s 200hour Yoga Alliance recognised Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.

In this Level II Teacher Training, the focus is on sensing, feeling and experiencing the Yin Yoga practice and the unique anatomy of our individual bone structure for ourselves.

You will be analysing yourselves and also each other, working in pairs or small groups conducting passive assists as well as gaining experience teaching this unique form of yoga. Through this very much hands on, practical approach your knowledge and understanding will be increased tenfold.

This training also delves deeper into our wondrous human anatomy – in particular, the exciting world of fascia – the fascinating “yin” tissue and the interconnectivity of our body.

Students must have completed our Yin Therapy’s Level I Yin Yoga and Anatomy Teacher Training to be able to participate in this level II training.
