How will these sessions work?
We use Zoom.
The first thing we always do is to welcome everyone in a group, as we do on our trainings in a welcome ‘circle’. As in real life you can get to know each other a bit and get a sense of the group energy.

Then we have a series of talks on different aspects of Yin Yoga via powerpoint presentation screen share, working in line with your manual, which you will receive via email.

For your teaching practice you will be split into smaller groups with one teacher and two or three students. Melanie and Jennie will be able to “pop in” to your group to listen in and give feedback (if you request this). If you prefer to do the teaching practice in person, you can do it as a homework and record it and send it to us.

We understand it can be very hard work to listen and watch the screen for long periods so we will include plenty of breaks and a chance to get up and stretch and move (we need this too!) 🙂


I want to learn more about Yin Yoga – but I am not interested in becoming a teacher…

You can attend the course and learn about the nurturing and healing benefits of Yin Yoga just for yourself!
If you don’t want a certificate, you don’t have to do any homework and you can skip the teaching practices. If you change your mind and DO want a certificate – no worries at at all: you can complete these segments later and you’ll receive a certificate upon completion.


Can I ask questions?

We always welcome questions! These can be posed via the chat function in Zoom, where you can also chat to each other and share ideas. There is also a facility to “raise you hand” and ask a question verbally.

After each session we will collate the questions and circulate within the group.


What if I’m a total technophobe?

Nothing in the technical online stuff is hard to do. We have had many participants who had very little/no experience and they all managed it fine! We will send full instruction before the course and if you need any help during the course we can work it out together.


I’m not a huge fan of working online…

We understand some people are very used to working in this way and some people are very resistant to video meetings. So, in a similar way to our in person trainings, there is no pressure on you to talk if you don’t want to, you don’t have to do the practice teaching on zoom if you don’t want to – we are here to support you and help you have a nurturing time – not to put you on the spot or make you feel uncomfortable. If you have any concerns about any of this, talk to us in advance and we can sort it out.


Recording sessions 

We pride ourselves in delivering a live, interactive course where students can ask questions, get involved and provide feedback, thoughts and input to the course as it happens.  There are many pre-recorded options available, but we think that it makes for a better learning experience to really get involved and to keep that group atmosphere, so we don’t record our sessions.

We also want to respect the privacy of our students and friends, this is a safe learning space where growth and personal development can take place and we want to keep that safe space open for everyone.

Then there’s also GDPR: it’s against data protection regulations to record and share events without the permission of ALL participants.

However, if you do want to repeat or catch up any of the course material in your own time, we do offer access to pre recorded content of this course for just an admin fee. 

What happens if I miss a session? 

We have courses happening throughout the year so you can either join another group for just an admin fee or buy access to pre recorded content. 


It’s all in the manual! 

Our course manual is a work of many years. It has been moulded and shaped into quite an in depth and detailed guide, so if you miss anything during the course, it’s all in the manual. 


My house is super noisy!

Some people have expressed concerns about noise/disturbance in the background. Most of the time when you’re listening you will be on mute – so no one can hear what’s happening in the background, and if a pet or child runs around a bit that’s very welcome! If you can’t get quiet to do your teaching practice it’s possible for us to re-schedule it at a time that suits you. So that shouldn’t be a problem.


Can we meet up in person?

We very much believe that in person work it very important so we sometimes offer in person meet ups in Stockholm and London.

We also arrange workshops in yin yoga adjustments, open to the public, which you can attend to a reduced price.

We sincerely hope you will meet us online soon and hopefully in real life too at some point.

Any questions let us know – as always we are here for you


With love
Melanie & Jennie
