  • A tailormade teacher training focusing on what you would like to dive deeper into.
  • Small group setting: lots of personal attention and feedback.
  • Plenty of time to reconnect with your own practice, and to recharge if you’re feeling drained.
  • Support from non dogmatic and experienced teachers: the empashis is on empowering you to find YOUR authentic way of teaching yin yoga and to obtain knowledge to see what is needed for different students; there isn’t one size fits all for this practice (or any style really!)

For whom?

We recommend that you have done a 200 hour teacher training (any style) but let us know if you haven’t and we will look into what other experiences you have.
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 made 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 (yoga teacher trainings and retreats in India and Europe) and have 20 + 13 years of experience 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: 1) YIN YOGA

  • The theory and science behind the practice
  • • The nervous system and the brain
    • Meridians and the energy system
    • Fascia
    ‘• 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.

  • 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 basic pose
    • How to use props
    • How to modify for hyper mobility, injuries, pregnancy
    • Alternative options

  • Sequencing
  •  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.

  • Hands on assists
  •  Our hands on assists are supportive and nurturing – the focus is on grounding and taking the student to deeper levels of relaxation and letting go.

    We will cover: 2) YOGA NIDRA

    • A non-dogmatic approach. We will cover the main techniques and modern schools of Yoga Nidra and what they offer. You’ll get the chance to compare and explore different methods to see which works the best for you. 
    • Yoga Nidra scripts. Online resources: You’ll get ready made scripts in different methods. Together we will also explore and develop a treasure trove of ideas and scripts for teaching your own yoga nidra – as well as incorporating it in your own practice.
