100 Hour Yin Teacher Training

100h Yin yoga training: foundations, functional anatomy and energy body

With ever-growing interest in Yin yoga, this is a unique opportunity to plunge into deeper exploration of the quiet, insightful and empowering Yin yoga practice in a comprehensive 100 Hour Yin Training lead by one of the greatest experts in Belgium.

We believe that each person is unique, and so should be your yoga. We also believe that practicing poses (asanas) becomes even more satisfying if we understand them and can make informed choices. We would like to give you keys to the anatomical and energetic principles behind Yin yoga poses, so that you are able to practice in a way that suits You best.

While Yin yoga practice might seem simple, its underlying concepts are less so and have far-reaching consequences. Therefore, we offer an extended 100 Hour Yin Training course at a rate of one weekend per month so that we can take time to clarify and assimilate these concepts.
A significant part of the training will be dedicated to analyzing the amazing anatomy and function of yoga poses, according to the method of Yin yoga initiator Paul Grilley. However, we will also discuss the broader picture of Yoga as a path of spiritual development, based on works of modern-day Yoga master and scientist Dr. Motoyama, PhD. You would be able to apply a substantial portion of what we will learn also to other parts of your practice.

The course will take place mostly on weekends. Each bloc will be a mix of lectures, interactive exercises and asana practice. Between the study weekends you might be assigned reading and/or homework.

The main language of instruction will be easy-to-understand English. Questions can be asked also in French or Dutch. Successful students will receive a certificate of Yoga Alliance continuing education hours.

This is the only 100 Hour Yin Training in Brussels.
