Become a mindful and skillful Yin Yoga Teacher with this comprehensive yoga training program
Train with our award-winning Health & Wellness business
Enjoy a low student to teacher ratio that will promote more individual attention and personal development
Yin Yoga targets the connective tissues, such as the ligaments, bones, and even the joints of the body that normally are not exercised very much in a more active style of yoga practice.
Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to the dynamic and muscular (yang) styles of yoga that emphasize internal heat, and the lengthening and contracting of our muscles. Instead, Yin Yoga generally targets the connective tissues of the hips, pelvis, and lower spine because as we age it is this area that tightens up the most; however, we can apply the principles of Yin Yoga all over the body.
This 30-hour training can be taken by the following participants:
Anyone who is interested in a more complete understanding of Yin Yoga for a deeper personal practice. It is recommended that the participant be familiar with Yin Yoga and have at least a year of consistent yoga practice.
A current Yoga Teacher of any style (i.e RYT 200). This training is eligible for 30 CEU credits with Yoga Alliance. You will be able to add this style of teaching to your skill set.
Navjit Kaur is the founder and director of the award-winning Yoga & Tea Studio (2008-present) and continues to teach and provide training programs in the area and abroad. As a mom, wife, Professional Engineer and Yogipreneur, Navjit Kaur enjoys sharing how yoga philosophy and techniques help you to deal with modern day issues relating to stress, health and relationships. Her approach in teacher training programs is to provide you with the experience of being a student first, and from there how to develop a personal practice, so that you can be of better service to those you teach based on your own experience of what you have practiced. Her gentle, friendly demeanor, joyful attitude, and effective communication and organization skills, make her programs accessible, provide introspection and growth, and an opportunity for you to heal, and be challenged to excel. She is also a Food For Life Cooking Instructor and demonstrates how plant-based diets can help to prevent and reverse illness. Since 2005, Navjit Kaur has taught over 4000 hours and continues to deepen her own personal practice and the art of teaching by taking continuing education. See her complete profile here...
The training takes place 1 day a week for 4 weeks. This will allow you more time to assimilate the theory, put it into personal practice and come prepared for the next day of training with your questions and observations.
The program format will be presentations on theory, history, anatomy, and include guided practices, hands-on teaching and partner work. Participants are expected to review the material and practice at home in the time between training days, so that questions and observations can be discussed in the following training day.
Enjoy free, ample parking, access to yoga props, complimentary tea, and lunch will be provided with a cooking demo of foods that can help detox and build healthy connective tissue for the season that we're in.
"Navjit Kaur was an exceptional guide and teacher who led us with her gentle ways of expressing the Yin Yoga practice. I most enjoyed experimenting with the yoga poses and the modifications, as well as the definition and explanation of Yin Yoga. It was a beautiful experience and I would highly recommend this training to everyone."
Mary Murphy, 2017
"Navjit Kaur and the Yin Yoga program were very informative. Great hands on practice. I got to explore aspects of Yin Yoga that I was unaware of. Thank you so much for this wonderful experience, it has truly changed my life!"
Chrystal Mullin, 2017
"I enjoyed most the hands on approach to teaching, the time taken to adapt/modify the poses, the history, western & eastern views, meridians, TCM and Dao. Thank you! I am grateful for your teachings."
Nicole Lemieux, 2017
"The content was delivered in a calm, well paced speed. The lessons really spoke to me. It has been an honour learning from you. Thank you for your kindness and for sharing your gift with us."
Basia Pawlikowski, 2017
"Thank you for your depth of knowledge. You held a wonderful and supportive space for all to grow and share in."
Margie Hill, 2016
"Navjit Kaur taught in a calm, knowledgeable, compassionate way and was very present to our needs. I most enjoyed the yogic view of energy and the mind/body/soul connection, learning all of the poses and attending the 90min Yin class sessions. Thank-you!"
Carol Martin, 2016
"This course makes it easier to make my own practice broader, more meaningful and interesting. The course expanded my knowledge of yoga in such a way that I can make better use of it. You must become aware of the Yin aspects of yoga in order to make greater use of it."
Jack Watters, 2016
"This course gave true insights into why and how Yin is so beneficial. I most enjoyed the material on the physical body, chinese meridians, Daoism, meditation and the morning 90min yin class session. Your classes are wonderful, I like that we do few poses but verbal cues really help to deepen my experience. My practice will never be the same! Thank-you!"
Michelle Tilley, 2016
"This Yin training program compliments Hatha Teacher Training perfectly."
