Yin Yoga Teacher Training at 1397 Fall River Road, NS

Yin Yoga Teacher Training

Date TBA at 1397 Fall River Road, Fall River, NS

Week-long course (50 hours) for $900 ($250 deposit required)

Open to Yoga Teachers and Long-time Yoga Practitioners

With our “graying” demographic, learn “age appropriate” longer held gentle poses to restore & renew. When one leads a yin yoga class, the students hold for long periods so what does the teacher offer during that time period? Here’s some ideas which will be included in the training:

  • breathing & meditation techniques
  • chakras & chanting
  • yin & meridian theory
  • affirmations
  • hand mudras
  • story telling
  • 8 limbs, yamas & niyamas (yoga philosophy)
  • modifications & assists for different body types & abilities

Training also includes:

  • benefits & contra-indications
  • lots of practice teaching in pairs & small groups
  • designing a yin yoga class
  • music suggestions
  • certificate & manual

This yin ytt may be used towards possible 300-hour teacher training (the next level after 200-hour basic certification). Trainees must fill out an intake form, provide deposit, purchase “The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga” by Bernie Clark well before the training & complete the full 50-hour course to receive certificate.  Trainees must provide own accommodations & food. Hours are 9 to 5 each day; with one hour credit towards self-study.

Led by Julie Palmer who has 25 years experience leading yoga and 1000+ hours of training. Her yin yoga journey began in 2012 with classes led by Bernie Clark online. In February of 2014 Julie took the Yin YTT with Bernie in Vancouver and immediately began teaching workshops and classes in this slow meditative style, volunteering at her local YMCA in Cornwallis.  At least once or twice a week Julie’s daily personal practice will be more yin-like and she’s added some poses to the yin encyclopedia of poses which she’ll share during the training.
