Yin Yoga Teacher Training
In the creation of our Yin Yoga Teacher Training syllabus, we have brought together ancient Vedic and yogic knowledge with the modern practices of science and teaching methodology in order to send our students out into the world secure in their yogic journey as well as confident and ready to teach.
At Mahi Yoga, we aim for our students to learn through experience which makes our Yin Yoga course highly practical and experiential. The Yin Yoga Teacher Training is a short intensive course that combines everything Yin in an immersion style training. You can expect to leave with a broad foundational knowledge of both the theory and teaching of Yin Yoga. As well as feeling absolutely regenerated mentally and physically from this wonderful practice.
What is Yin Yoga?
Yin Yoga is a practice which embodies the opposite of a usual active (yang) practice. Yang means activation, dynamic movement, fire, masculine energy, and power. Yin means quietness, stillness, introspection, feminine energy and softness.
Yin yoga is the slow and soft style of yoga. The asanas or yoga poses are held for longer periods of time than a usual Yoga practice.
So, a Yin Yoga practice is one that pays attention to holding poses in stillness for extended periods of time and of focusing inward, observing the fluctuations of the mind. This itself can help practitioners to achieve meditative states and often aids those who struggle to meditate to access its benefits.

Want to learn more about different styles of yoga?
The physical effects of Yin Yoga are also different than a regular yoga practice.
Yin Yoga works by releasing tension in the connective tissues of the body. Working into those tight areas of Fascia (our web of connective tissues) and the joints. For those people who have very tight stiff areas in the body this Yin Yoga practice can really help to open the body in ways that a regular yoga practice might not.
In these hard to access areas a yoga practitioner might have stored unreleased emotions, fears and worries. By holding still and releasing the tension for the body as well as the mind a practitioner of Yin Yoga can witness big changes in their emotional and mental state as well as their physical one.
