What is Embodied Yin?
Embodied Yin™ invites us to explore our multidimensional capacities for healing by listening and sensing with the whole body-mind.

In Yin Yoga we create gentle (sometimes more dynamic) long held postures and practices with an attitude of Maitri, loving kindness. The poses stimulate energy flow in meridians, energy channels, restore, rewire and replenish our nervous system.

During these Yang infused times, Yin, and the rebalancing of YinYang dynamics, help us to stop, reset and respond as we start again.

Want to become a Yin yoga teacher of the NOW with deeply rooted understanding of the tradition, non dual Tantra, somatics and Embodied anatomy among others things?

Hungry for cutting edge knowledge and embodiment of yourself in movement and stillness and then share it with others?

Embodied Yin™ teacher training is for anyone to embark on a journey towards becoming a yin yoga teacher/facilitator (If you haven’t completed a foundational yoga teacher training, you wont be getting a certificate to teach just yet) OR anyone already teaching yoga/movement/dance etc. but aspire for more tools and a more embodied way of facilitating. You can also join to deepen your studies, if teaching is not in the books just yet.

The “out-of-the-box” Yin Yoga teacher training provides a comprehensive study into the philosophy and methodology of Embodied Yin Yoga.

Topics and practices include asana (Embodied yin yoga), Somatics, free movement, use of Props and assists, embodied and experiential anatomy, pranayama, mantra, meditation, Chinese medicine and Taoism and the foundations of non-dual Tantrik philosophy.

More specifically we will dive into:

  • Chinese medicine in relation to Yin yoga (the five Phases/elements theory and Meridians)

  • Qigong, Shiatsu, movement therapy

  • Embodied experiential anatomy and energetics

  • Trauma sensitivity in yoga

  • Taoism and Classical Non-dual Tantra (not Neo tantra)

  • In-depth study and understanding of the main yin poses + some unconventional poses

  • Explorations into Embodied Flow , Body-Mind Centering and other somatic practices

  • Tools for self-healing

  • The power of Touch- and what that power means + different ways to use props and give some healing assists

  • The power of holding space

  • Authentic teaching

  • Illuminating soundscape

and much more!

With a focus on the process of self-inquiry, self-discovery and transformation, students will deepen their own journey in Yoga, particularly in Embodied Yin yoga, while preparing to lead others on the path with skill and authenticity.

The full training (training material + some independent work) is +50h.

Training is not limited to teachers. You will get a certificate on the participation.
All teacher participants that also finish the certification pathway successfully will get a certificate and can begin teaching Embodied Yin™ and “normal” yin yoga classes. Please email Emma to know more about the certification pathway:

We are a RYS200 and RYS300 since many years and this can be added as continuing education at Yoga Alliance for anyone that successfully finished the full training and certification process.
