40 Hour Yintensive®
Yin Yoga Teacher Training
40 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Certification
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 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.

6 days to massively uplevel your skill and knowledge and welcome an entirely new type of student into your classes.
Transform your teaching
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 training is for you. Read more about what you will learn and apply.
We’ll begin with the basic poses separated into categories. Then we will branch out into variations. Students will learn how to tinker with and explore poses in a way that honors Yin protocol and leaves room for unique needs and goals. Best of all this method feeds into the sequencing model that you will learn later in training.
Yin poses are often complicated add to that, most students are unable to see demonstrations since they are close to the floor. In Yintensive® Yin Yoga Teacher Training you will learn how to assist students while still allowing them to stay in the zone and explore in their own unique skills and limitations. Assists are based on principles of observation and Thai Massage.
Science of Yin Yoga
Modern Yoga teachers must understand the implications and consequences of the movements they teach. This section will introduce you to the incredible world of tissue mechanics, adaptation, healing and pain science.
The element that makes a good teacher extraordinary. Incorporate powerful theming material into your classes while honoring your students’ personal practice space. Learn to create environments that are ripe for self discovery and introspection though focused theming and powerful storytelling.
Yin doesn’t follow traditional sequencing strategies, so understanding the postures and how they fit with each other is vital. To embrace the goal of non-competitiveness and to release ambition, we will explore a sequencing model that prioritizes personal introspection and responsibility rather than the traditional peak pose scheme. This model truly highlights the meditative aspect of Yin Yoga.
Put your new skills and knowlege to use! To recieve your certificate you will submit practice teaching forms to Mandy. You also have the additional opportunity to recieve extra guidance and mentorship from Mandy in a one hour meeting in person or via zoom.

“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.”
