Yin yoga combines the Yin Yang philosophy from China and classic Hatha yoga postures from India. It has multiple layers which benefit both the physical and energetic body. While both layers serve the body and mind, the ultimate goal of yin yoga is to facilitate a steady meditation practice.
Our Yin Yoga & Chinese Meridians Teacher Training is grounded in a model of holistic learning. Through holistic learning methods, our training will elevate your practice by bringing you pure knowledge from the Traditional Chinese Medicine and Yoga System.

The training will take place at one of our favorite spots in Bali, Balian Beach. Balian means "Healing" and is located on the West of Bali about 2hrs from Canggu. Walk the majestic beach, immerse in the natural surrounds and connect to the magic of this beautiful place. You will be living the beach front dream for this blissful 10-day training.
Balian Beach in West Bali is a tranquil location which has the "old world" feel of Bali before it became popular with tourists. Pondok Pitaya Hotel is located on the edge of a natural volcanic black and gold-glittered sand beach surrounded by beautiful cliffs. The expansive beach is safe and perfect for long walks during sunset or sunrise.
Explore the fundamentals of Yin Yoga based on the holistic model of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
As an ancient medicinal system, there is a certain kind of magic to TCM which is made accessible through the practice of Yin yoga. It is an inclusive web of healing modalities that address our entire being- including the body, mind, and spirit. In TCM, there are twelve regular meridians and eight extraordinary meridians. While the regular meridians are used for healing purposes, the extraordinary meridians are mainly for spiritual pursuit.
In this training, you’ll learn the fundamentals of Chinese medicine and Yin yoga including the Five Elements, Three Treasures, Chinese meridian system, healing sounds & colors, Yin Yang organs, and their associated emotions. We will also be sharing how to infuse the elements of Qi Gong and acupressure points into your practice.
