The practice of Yoga is a pathway to profound happiness and health and its aim is to cultivate a balance between all the facets that we are made of. Just like everything around us, our existence is defined by the interconnectedness of opposing aspects, we are Yin and we are Yang.


Yin Yoga is the complementing practice to the dynamic and muscular Yang yoga styles widely known in the West. Yin Yoga aims for the deeper layers of our body, working on the rejuvenation and mobility of our bones and all connective tissues. Yin Yoga is soft, still and nourishing, cultivating receptiveness and inward awareness. While holding poses for a longer period of time, this practice provides the opportunity for connecting with the innermost self and for releasing physical, emotional and mental tension. Yin Yoga as a distinct style has been coined in recent decades by Paul Grilley but its underlying concepts are rooted in the ancient philosophies of India and China evolving around the aspects of health and energy.


Yoga Nidra is the practice of yogic sleep, an ancient technique rooted in the Indian yogic philosophy and brought to light by yogic master Swami Satyananda Saraswati. Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation, in which the practitioner is lead to enter a state of deep physical relaxation while remaining in an awakened state of mind. In a different manner but yet with a similar aim as Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra aids to release tensions on a physical, emotional and mental level. Yet Yoga Nidra goes further and as release and relaxation is induced, it acts as a tool to restructure and reform our whole personality from within.


Yoga Nidra is a scientific method that allows deep healing and the awakening of our creative genius. It therefore makes a highly valuable addition to the teaching of Yin Yoga.

Yin Yoga Teacher Training: MODULE 1

Yin Yoga & Functional Anatomy
In this 50 hrs Yin Yoga & Yoga Nidra Teacher Training we embark on a journey to discover and work with the deepest layers of our being. Both practices aim at healing and empowering on a physical, emotional, and mental level, while giving space to the potentiality within. In this teacher training you will learn a variety of tools to guide experiences into stillness and awareness in order to provide overall wellbeing.
Yin Yoga is a functional practice in nature, therefore we will dive into functional anatomy, looking into the skeletal variations and understanding their consequences for the practice. We will examine the different poses, their functions – or target areas – and explore variations that could help different bodies to achieve those functions.
We will also go into the basics of the Daoist philosophy, the concept of Yin and Yang and how they relate to anatomy and Yoga practice. Graduates of this course, will feel competent designing, theming, sequencing and instructing meaningful Yin Yoga classes.

Topics covered

  • Yin Yang Philosophy
  • Yin & Yang Tissues
  • Functional Anatomy
  • Skeletal Variations
  • The Poses Archetypes & Their Variations
  • Yin Posture Analysis

“Yin Yoga is like a conversation with your body; listen carefully, and you’ll learn profound truths.”
– Paul Grilley

Yin Yoga Teacher Training: MODULE 2

Yin Yoga & Chakra theory
In this training we will explore how ancient concepts like chakras, karma, samskaras, vrittis and vasanas can be relevant to our development and well being, especially in this modern world. During this course we will practice different chakra meditation techniques, yin (and some yang) asana sequences, and investigate the physical, emotional and mental characteristics of each of the chakras.
We will also go through a review of the main anatomical and philosophical principles behind yin yoga, (re)visiting target areas, skeletel segments and the archetypal poses.
The training is based on the philosophical teachings of Paramahansa Yoganandya, Dr. Hiroshi Motoyama and Paul Grilley.
