100hr Yin Yoga & Chinese Meridians Teacher Training
December 02nd-13th, 2019
The 100hr Yin Yoga & Meridians Teacher Training is designed to elevate 200hr or 500hr yoga teachers to the next level of physical, emotional, and spiritual awareness.
This program is also created for non-yoga teachers who are genuinely interested in deepening their personal practice and expanding their knowledge base in yoga and self-growth.
This training is one-of-a-kind. Our goal is to help you break free from any emotional obstacles and help you in becoming a soulful Yin yoga teacher and practitioner with maximum awareness and knowledge. Through the wisdom of Yoga and traditional Chinese medicine, you will shed away from self-limiting beliefs, elevate your knowledge, create balance in your physical practice and illuminate your mind.
The training practices in this program have two significant purposes: to discover our personal physical variations (skeletal & muscular) and stimulate emotional growth through self-awareness and self-love. We emphasize on building these two fundamental pillars first in your personal practice and from there gradually develop your insights as a soulful Yin yoga teacher.
To expand our physical and emotional growth takes courage and vulnerability. We’ve created a safe space for you to shed away your worldly identities and allow your true self to shine bright!
By successfully completing the 100hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training, you'll receive a 100hr Yoga Alliance certification and can be applied as Continue Education Units (CEU). You must attend all contact-hours and achieve satisfactory course work to graduate.

REGULAR RATE IS $1799 ON OCT 2 ONWARD.
