100Hr Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course in Edinburgh

Build up towards your 500 Hour Yoga Certification, this Yoga course is a module of the
300 Hour Banjaara Yoga Teacher Training in UK
Yin Yoga is a profound practice that unravels that which is repressed and stuck in our body-mind matrix and promotes the flow of energy (Qi) through the energy channels (meridians) of our deep Yin core, by bringing health to our bodies and balance to our busy Yang style lives.

In this 100-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training, we will journey into the combined wisdom of Hatha Yoga, Traditional Chinese Medicine & Taoist Five Element Meridian Theory. We will explore the subtle realm of fascia and the energetic network, our basic anatomical differences that ultimately affect our yoga postures and learn tools to harmonize the connective tissue in the body.

In this deeply healing training, you will learn to be with what is, to let go of resistance by releasing physical, mental or emotional baggage, influence the chi flow through the 12 meridian pathways, fuel the 12 main organ systems with life force to enable our lives to become more fluid, supple, flexible and easeful. This training offers a holistic map and practical pathway for potentializing freedom and liberation within ourselves and in turn allow you to teach this practice with confidence.

This training can be taken alone or as part of our 300-Hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification.
