Last minute discount:
YOU WILL RECEIVE
Online via Zoom – from the comfort of your own home!
We’ll also have optional in person meet-ups at several locations in Sweden and in the UK in 2021, if you want a follow up or extra support after the course.
We recommend that you have done a 200 hour teacher training (any style) but this is not mandatory! If you haven’t: send us an email and let us know and we will look into what other experiences you have and we’ll give you extra support during the course.
The intention is to give you, as a teacher, more tools, to broaden your teaching skills as well as your target groups. Perhaps you have done a training in a dynamic yoga style and would like to add a slow style to your teaching menu as well – to be able to teach back to back classes at studios and retreats?
We have a set structure in line with Yoga Alliance’s criteria, but on top of that we have a certain amount of hours that we can tailor for YOU – and as far as we know, this is quite unique: for you, as participants, to be able to take part in forming the course content!
We (Melanie and Jennie) have worked together for almost 10 years and have 45 years of teaching experience between us from teaching yoga and teacher trainings full time.
We have experienced a lot over the years – and what we keep coming back to is how important it is to be authentic, to find “your voice” as a teacher and to have the courage to be YOURSELF when you are teaching! Working as a yoga teacher is amazing – but it also takes a lot of energy – and can be very draining if you are not looking after yourself. (And it’s so easy to not give ourselves that time/attention/selfcare – so in the training we will also put emphasis on how to create space for your own health and practice: to stay balanced and mentally strong!
We will cover
Theory and science behind the practice
- The nervous system and the brain
- Meridians and the energy system
- Updated research, the different aspects of yin yoga and how it is applicable to different body types and how personalities, and how movement patterns plays an important part.
We’ll look into the specific areas of the body in more detail, how they move and respond to the Yin poses
Teaching the poses
Our focus is very much on teaching the practice in a way that is inclusive and safe for everyone making this a nurturing and healing practice, a way to connect and go deep inside; a way to truly relax and rejuvenate.
For each pose we will cover:
- How to practice and teach the poses
- How to use props
Sequencing & Class Planning
- Sequences for specific meridians, for specific yoga poses (eg for backbends, opening the hips, twists, forward bends), and a general all round class
- How to plan a class, when and how much to talk, what to talk about.
Contraindications and modifications
How to develop your classes for conditions such as pregnancy, injuries and hyper-mobility, making the practice accessible for individual bodies

9 am – 5.30 pm (UK time)

We use the term Homework loosely here, there is a requirement of 18 hours of learning outside of the course, some will be written but mostly to establish a Yin Yoga Practice (students have said that this is their favourite ever homework!) and to read a book (you’ll get several options) and write down your thoughts and questions.
There won’t be any exams. Rather, we are interested in seeing that you have gained an understanding and knowledge that you can apply to each individual student depending on their needs. This course is intended to spark your interest in embarking on or continuing this fascinating journey.
