Submerge yourself into a 100 hour Yin Yoga Training and learn to share the subtle meditative qualities of this practice. Created from a blend of the ethereal sciences of the East and the material sciences of the West Yin Yoga is all about balance.


This training uses lecture and guided practice to develop a conceptually diverse understanding with extensive first-hand experience.


Yin Yoga brings your awareness through the tissues of your body releasing tension layer by layer. Becoming well versed in Yin Yoga is like being able to apply a deep tissue massage to your body with your mind. Making that experiential connection to all you have heard or read about Chi you can begin to find a new way to experience your body.


This curriculum emphasizes the balance between Eastern (ethereal) and Western (material) sciences. With an in depth exploration of meditation, subtle anatomy and physical anatomy learn to teach the subtle qualities of Yin Yoga. Using lectures and guided practice you will develop your own strategies for teaching and working with students to guide them to listen to their body. The deeper you go with your training and self-exploration the more you can help students learn from their own bodies to create a deep tissue massage with their mind.


*** No previous experience required, this training is suitable for beginners to Yin or Yoga in general, those who just want to deepen their practice and/or for those experienced with Yin who want more insight to teach.

About the Instructor

TJ’s Yoga story began 18 years ago after receiving a book, the Tao Te Ching,
as a gift from his sister. With an MFA in art and 6 years as a grade school art teacher TJ has a deep appreciation for the journey of self-exploration that is essential to learning. That paired with traveling, reading countless books, and over a decade of meditation and continuous trainings and studies with various teachers associated with Zen, Buddhism, Taoism, Yoga and Meditation, TJ decided that the inward journey would be his focus.
