ONLINE Two day 20Hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Nina Goldberger E-RYT

About this training…

In this comprehensive Yin Yoga Teacher Training we will practice Yin Yoga postures according to season & first hand feel the effects of unblocking our energy lines.

You’ll learn about the science & purpose behind Yin Yoga and its roots in ancient Traditional Chinese Philosophy. This course will give you all the tools to confidently introduce Yin Yoga to your students in classes and sequence themed classes.

Yin Yoga offers us an opportunity to ‘clean house’ so that the body & its organs can function more harmoniously as laid out by the traditions of TCM. 

All too often, the build-up of life stress, cause not only tightness and discomfort in the body, but deeper-rooted illness too. There is a way to undo the cycle and learn how to effectively relax, body, mind & soul. Yin can potentially aid healing by  calming down the nervous system thus reducing stress & anxiety, improving health & wellbeing.

Please note: This course is open to previously certified 200hr Yoga Teachers.

The 20 hours are made up of online training hours and completing approximately four hours of self-study: 2 assignments & recommended reading.

The Training will cover:

  • Exploring the Traditional Yin Yoga Postures (& some variations/modifications) and why we practice them in this way
  • The benefits of this ‘sweet surrender’ practice as a whole
  • The role of Stress & the Nervous System
  • Exploring Meridian Line Theory & Energetics
  • Philosophy & Background
  • Contraindications & Modifications for people who are experiencing injury, are pregnant or inhabit older bodies
  • How Yin Yoga practice correlates to the seasons and the complementing elements (5 Element Theory) & Sense Organs
  • Planning & Structuring a themed Yin Yoga Class
  • Breathing for Stress Relief/Calming down an overactive nervous system
  • Metta Meditation (Loving Kindness Meditation) & Yoga Nidra sessions

Yin Yoga is the perfect accompaniment to a healthy Yang practice such as Ashtanga, Vinyasa Flow Yoga, or any other type of higher intensity sport, to offer balance and support for your body’s systems.

Excellent training!
I thoroughly enjoyed this course & would recommend it. Lovely teacher. Such a friendly atmosphere.

I found it particularly beneficial as my wrist is currently broken and healing, so being able to practice asana with injury, was wonderful. What more can I say.
More please and thank you so so much.

Yin Yoga has been on my radar for a while,  It is the perfect accompaniment to surfing & life in Morocco. 
I particularly enjoyed the deep back releases!
I was a little apprehensive to sign up to a 2 day weekend online course. Curious as to how it would feel being on Zoom for so long each day, for 2 days. I am now confident in saying that this style of learning suited me.
I really enjoyed the format of the weekend course. Each day we went straight into a Yin practice, guided by Nina, a knowledgeable, passionate, patient and empathetic teacher. Her teaching style was really accessible, and easy to follow online.
Both days finished with further relaxation, a beautiful guided meditation and Yoga Nidra. The course was really well planned, great recommended Reading List, simple booking process and follow up. 
I am excited to get back to online teaching and share my new Yin wisdom soon.

Thank you so much for a really great, informative course and some lovely practices. I will definitely be making yin part of my regular practice and will be incorporating the course into my teaching.

This training is fantastic and Nina is amazing!

Nina is so knowledgeable and warm. I thoroughly enjoyed the training which was almost like a little retreat.
Both days started with a nourishing practice and the days then packed with information, closing with a relaxation and yoga nidra.

Nina’s time keeping was excellent and the day was structured really well, which is important when learning via Zoom.

Nina answered all our questions and was friendly, calm and patient with everyone.

After the course, we received details of books we discussed, class planning and lots of other resources, as well as the recordings from the weekend. I feel really well prepared to explore yin in my own classes now and I can’t thank Nina enough for all her support with that.

I thoroughly recommend this course.
