Yin Yoga Teacher Training Retreat
Sunshine Coast Hinterland
Fri 3rd – Mon 6th May 2024
Our Yin Yoga Teacher Training Retreat will be delivered over three days, as an immersion experience designed to facilitate a deep understanding of Yin Yoga, and install in all attendees the confidence and experience to add this beautiful and important style of healing into their teaching repartee. Join Caroline Vega, Senior Teacher Training Facilitator with My Health Yoga and owner of myDrishti Yoga, as she expertly delivers the philosophy, science and Chinese Medicine roots of true Yin Yoga.
Join us in the tranquil, Belli Park surrounded by mother nature, as we learn not only to teach Yin Yoga, but more importantly to live a life of harmony and balance between our inner Yin and Yang energies. You will connect with other trainees and teachers, explore your inner metaphysics, enjoy classes and meditations, and feel the inspiration from the peaceful surroundings of the sunshine coast hinterlands Belli Park. Nourished by organic, self-grown local produce and catering.
Before, during and after our training, we offer a lifetime of support and connection. As a trainee and Yin practitioner, you are now fully aligned with your true path and you are assisting with individual and Universal healing.
Welcome to your Yin Immersion Teacher Training!
The My Health Yoga Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course Experience
We have created a thorough course that will enable you to unleash the Yin aspect of Yoga.
As Yoga has become more and more popular in the West, Yang yoga has become by far the most dominant form of practice. Whilst Yang Yoga is powerful, healing and important, we strongly feel that Yin Yoga is equally crucial in order to achieve a truly balanced and homeostatic way of life. Universally, Yang cannot exist without Yin and vice versa. Our bodies both physical and energetic, obey this Universal law. Sacred balance is physically and metaphysically achieved through the regular practice of Yang and Yin Yoga in similar proportions.
Our course aims to give teachers and students alike the ability to unleash the Yin side of the cosmic balance to bring about a complete form of Yoga and wellbeing in our lives. After enrolling, you will receive access to two modules online to complete in your own time. With the remaining four modules completed in-person during the retreat to ensure all attendees experience a balance of learning and time for introspection, practice and retreat.
Pre-requisite: Level 1 Yoga Teacher Training (in person or online) with My Health Yoga or another accredited yoga school. You may join the course for personal development and receive a Certificate of Participation which can later be used to add to another yoga qualification or as credit points.
This course will give you the tools to live as the eternal witness dwelling in love, joy and peace. This energy is both healing for yourself and provides the tools for you to facilitate healing and transformation for others so that we may live in service to God/Goddess/Brahman.
