Yin Yoga Teacher Training 2020

I will be offering a 60 hour Yin Yoga teacher training ( Yoga Alliance Continuing Education Program ) over two 4-day weekends again  this year ( 6/14 - 17  and  6/21 - 24 ) that will give you a certificate of completion by Yoga Alliance, enabling you to teach Yin Yoga, as well as 60 hours of credit towards your 500 hour teacher training certification.

It will be located at Sattva Fitness Yoga Center ( 433 W. Grand Ave., Escondido 92025 ). The cost of $500 can be made in 2 payments.

The Training

  • Purpose & Practice of Yin Yoga ( Taoist Yoga ) & a brief history
  • All Yin Yoga poses: how & when to use props
  • Sequencing of poses
  • Breathing techniques associated with Yin Yoga
  • Flow & blockages of prana affected by Yin Yoga
  • Anatomy & physiology in relationship to Yin Yoga & its benefits
  • Acupressure points affected & the importance of the meridian system in Yin Yoga
  • Effects of Yin Yoga on the Chakras
  • Elements & emotions associated with Yin Yoga poses

On the second Sunday we will have a 2 hour workshop where each of you will present a Yin Yoga topic from the list above, offer two or more poses, help the students take the poses, assist with props, and explain the benefits of the poses you are presenting.

Please email me if you are interested in more details & reserve your spot today!

The amount of usable information you provided exceeded that of the 200 hour YTT course that I had just completed. A friend confessed that she was disappointed with the 200 training because she had no idea how to create a class. We were not taught sequencing, proper timing of transitions, adjustments or any hands-on manipulation of any kind. I was happy to tell her that everything I knew came from you...Picking the right teacher is a difficult choice. Sometimes we don't realize we got ripped off until the day after we graduate. and sometimes we don't realize just how fortunate we have been to receive the breadth of information we have (at a fraction of the cost). I recommended that she attend your next teacher training. Forever grateful, Helena

I truly enjoyed Sylvi's yin yoga teacher training. She has extensive knowledge of yin yoga & you can't find effective teacher training like hers anywhere else. At first I was overwhelmed by the amount of information I had to consume, but once we went through the training & learned the poses I was able to connect all the dots & everything made sense. It was so easy for me to start teaching yin yoga classes right after the training. I go back to my notes & textbooks from the training quite often because what I learned from Sylvi is so valuable. Thank you Sylvi!

The Yin Yoga teacher training was even more than I ever anticipated. I learned about yoga on so many levels, and Sylvi's wisdom & knowledge base of Yin Yoga is profound. I also experienced a lot of emotional healing, gained more muscle tone, lost weight, my digestion improved which has been an issue for a long time, & my parasympathetic nervous system seemed to get rebooted. I have felt calmer ever since the class, and have more energy! My experience when I now attend a Yin Yoga class is much deeper & I feel competent to teach. Thank you Sylvi...I feel you have opened up a whole new world for me.
