Yin Yoga Teacher Training

Module I

Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course

Online Yin Yoga Training

Yin Yoga is a highly therapeutic, meditative style that requires a skilled approach to sequencing, queing and theming. To teach it well one has to know the philosophical theory that was it’s genesis and the anatomical and physiological protocol that makes it such a healing practice. So often we teachers regurgitate the rhetoric of our teachers but Yin is more than theory. In Yin Yoga Teacher Training Module I you will learn the science of Yin Yoga and you will learn how to apply your new understanding to not just Yin classes but all of your formats.

Online Training

Module I is a self guided course. Lectures are divided into bite sized videos. We start with the basics and gradually build on to your knowledge until you have a firm grasp of what we are really doing in Yin Yoga, and how to do it better.

Module I Curriculum Details

If you are a teacher who likes to know why… A teacher who feels most comfortable teaching techniques and concepts when you understand the tradition, the history or the science behind them… A compassionate leader who strives to truly enhance student’s lives through practice… this online Yin Yoga Teacher Training is for you. Read more about what you will learn in this fully online Yin Training Course.

Fundamental Concepts

Yin is unique and requires a specialized process. Learn about the impact of Yin Yoga, why coolness is vital and what tools Yin yoga teachers use to provide good stress to tissues.

All About Fascia

You’ll build on your new understanding of tissue loading and connective tissue to dive into the fascinating world of fascia. It’s so much more than something that we need to stretch. 

Pose Categories and Tissue Loading

Discover the Yin zone and learn helpful categories for postures. An anatomy primer will help you understand the unique stress that Yin provides to tissues. This information will be vital when you learn Yin sequencing in Module II.

Viscoelastic Phenomenon and Adaptation

The simple narrative of; stretch to lengthen tissues, is deeply embedded in Yoga teaching and practice. But what if there were other factors? Other behaviors of tissues? What if you understood those and could use them to enhance your teaching? This section will inspire your teaching for years to come.

Connective Tissue Basics

 It is widely known that Yin targets the Yin tissues of the body. We understand the Yin tissues to be the connective tissues but most teachers understand little else. There are a great number of myths and misunderstandings about CT. This Section introduces the basics. 

Research Review and Applicaiton

In this section you will be treated to a review of recent research in to static stretching and related fields. Learning the science of movement can be liberating, but also a bit scary. Much of what you will learn contradicts what you have been told or led to believe. This training empowers you to become an evidence informed teacher by providing first the evidence and next, practical tools for using it in the trenches of Yoga teaching.

Alumni Feedback

“I would definitely recommend this training and any of Mandy’s trainings to others. Mandy is one of the most knowledgeable and well-spoken yogis I have ever met. This training was packed with information, well organized and structured, and left me wanting more. I probably got as much or more out of this 5 days than my 200 hr YTT. This class reinvigorated my desire to learn about and teach yoga.”


“Mandy is a wealth of knowledge and she is able to articulate her message clearly and with passion. She is a great example of true dedication to her purpose and it’s amazing to learn from her. I look forward to the next opportunity.”


“This course really challenged some of my teachings and understandings of fitness and yoga. While it was uncomfortable at first, I grew in the short time we were together to embrace it, make space for it. I tend to avoid conflict in all aspects of my life…sitting in discomfort and digesting. Hummmm sounds like Yin? I was most attracted to the science behind the practice…and the training did not disappoint. Knowledge, resources, science, resources…loved it all! It was amazingly overwhelming and I’m super excited to continue experiencing Yin both as a practitioner and teacher.”
