YUJMU's Yin Yoga Teacher Training Program

Brought to you by the Heart of a School-Teacher, the Mind of an Artist and the Spirit of a Yogi

The 100 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training is a self contained pathway to become adept at and able to teach Yin Yoga effectively and safely.  The program is structured to provide additional depth to experienced teachers (even those who already teach Yin Yoga) and for beginners with little to no experience with Yin Yoga.  Below you will find an overview of the components of the training within 3 groupings but first here is a bit of what to expect from the overall structure of your time in the training:

2. The Special Sauce

 
 

Every great recipe begins with great ingredients and we tailor the YUJMU Yin Yoga Teacher Training to use only the finest tried and tested ingredients to formulate our Content.  This content is sourced from a variety of current resources, research, first-hand experience of the practices, several Yin Teachers we have studied under plus numerous teachers in other specialized fields.  As for the structure of the Curriculum itself, well, that is just an architectural work of art to us.  How to scaffold learning in a progressive, intuitive manner is one of our favorite things to explore.  Just like an artwork is always evolving to present a message, so too is our curriculum.  Yin Yoga should be relaxing, Yin Yoga Teaching should be relaxing and so too should experiencing a Yin Yoga Teacher Training.  This all manifests via the curriculum.
