Are you interested in Yin Yoga & the healing arts of Chinese Medicine?
In this 100hr Yin Yoga & Chinese Meridians Teacher Training, we will explore in length the energetic physiology and anatomy based on Traditional Chinese Medicine. Through an Eastern perspective, you'll find how our emotions and health are intrinsically linked. From thousands of years ago, the Chinese started to explore various ways to increase vitality. Along the way, they discovered, through equanimity of the physical, energetic and spiritual self, we can achieve optimal health.
Based on the ideology of Taoism, adopting the phenomenon of observing nature’s order, Yin Yoga is a gateway to enhancing a person's overall well-being by removing tension in the body and mind. In today's fast- paced world, Yin Yoga is increasingly in demand as more people are suffering from stress and physical ailments. Yin Yoga is also a sustaining self-practice that you can do regardless of age, ability and other conditions.

This is truly an overwhelmingly phenomenal training. It is beyond what I’ve had hoped for and more. The training is so thorough, Annie is so kind and loving, and teaches in a gentle but very direct manner. I’ve learned so much about Buddhist philosophy and as a student of Traditional Chinese Medicine and a yogini, this training will take my knowledge and skill to the next level. Thank you Annie!
One of the most life changing and challenging experiences I have ever had. Each part of the training has touched me in a very different and effective way. Annie and Mathieu are amazing at what they teach. This will definitely not my last training with them.
I loved the fact that we were challenged so much physically and emotionally. I learned a lot from both teachers. Mathieu’s sequencing and methodology have given me a lot of confidence to teach a style which I am slightly nervous about. Sayulita is a lovely place to spend nearly 4 weeks in. The hotel is a great location. After this training, I feel I just want to continue learning and improve my practice.
