Modular Trainings

Byron Yoga Centre’s 50 and 25 hour Modular Trainings are designed to be stand alone specialty courses as well as being applicable to part of your 200 or 300 certificates. They fit particularly well as part of a Level 2 300 hour course. To be counted as part of a Level 1 or Level 2 the modular course must be undertaken after the residential intensive not before. These modular course hours can also be used for the ongoing professional development required each year by Yoga Alliance and other professional bodies. Or you could just do one because you want to learn more.

Yin Yoga

Yin yoga has been growing in popularity as people increasingly seek balance in a fast-paced world.  The chance to sink into stillness, to connect to your centre and to relax into rest is a potent practice.

Many people see Yin Yoga as a complement to a vinyasa practice, the yin to the yang, but it is also an entire practice in itself. This training will equip you, as a teacher and as a practitioner, to add elements of Yin to the cool down of your class or to teach complete sessions of Yin Yoga.

Many people confuse Yin and Restorative Yoga, for a detailed explanation see here

Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course Overview

This course provides a solid foundation of the theory and methodology of Yin Yoga. You will learn how Yin Yoga poses works along the body’s meridians and about the effects on the bio-mechanics of the body including how the poses work on the fascia and connective tissue. You will also explore experientially how Yin Yoga works on deep levels to still the mind and balance the emotions, even releasing long held emotions on a cellular level.

You will be guided through the teaching method and sequencing of 20 key poses in Yin Yoga, and variations on these poses. Participants will have the opportunity for practical teaching experience and encouraged to develop their competent and confidence in sharing Yin Yoga with others.

Course Content

This residential course is a mixture of theoretical and practical sessions. You will have the opportunity for practical teaching experience or you can choose to participate as a student. Then the evening sessions will include teaching practice and also offer you time to relax and reconnect to yourself through guided meditation, pranayama and Yoga Nidra.

  • Learn to teach 20 Yin Yoga poses, safely and confidently
  • Yin intentions and principles
  • Physical and energetic theory and benefits of Yin Yoga asanas
  • Meridians of the body and how to develop themed classes
  • Sequencing, adjusting and use of props for Yin Yoga
  • Bio mechanics of Yin Yoga on the body
  • Practical teaching opportunities
  • Time to relax, enjoy the pool and explore the area
  • Guided meditations, Pranayama and Yoga Nidra

Certificate of Attainment

If you attend all the sessions and classes, you will receive a certificate of completion. You can choose to opt out of classes but you will not only get the 50 Hour certificate if you attend all sessions.

This can be counted as 50 hours towards any Level 1 or Level 2 where you have already participated in the residential intensive.

This 50 hour training can be counted as your CPD (Continuous Professional Development) as required by Yoga Alliance (YACEP) and Yoga Australia.

Note: There are no assessments or online requirements for this course (yay!).
