This comprehensive training is designed in accordance with the requirements for registration with Yoga Alliance USA. Upon graduation, students may apply directly with Yoga Alliance USA for “RYT 200” yoga teacher status.

Yinspiration is the first yin yoga school in the world to develop a full time residential 200hrs Yin Yoga Teacher Training in 2013 in Bali. Setting the gold standards as the first to develop a comprehensive and rigorous yin yoga training curriculum, hundreds of students and current Yin trainers from all over the world have graduated from this program.

Taught by senior Yinspiration trainers, lead teacher Dominik and guest teacher Fran who will ensure that you receive teacher training to the highest standards.

This training is the blueprint yin yoga teacher training that lays the foundation for one to become a full-fledged Yin Yoga teacher upon graduation.

Techniques, Training, Practice

In the online yoga teacher training, we will delve into several critical areas. First, we will explore the techniques, training, and practice of Asana, with a focus on Yin Yoga theory, and discuss the Yin and Yang descriptions of Asana. We will differentiate between aesthetic and functional yoga and develop levels of functional awareness to understand the purpose of yoga Asana better. Key topics include "The Rebound," the seven archetypal Yin Yoga poses, and over 100 Asana variations targeting myofascial groups from Jo Phee's Book of Yin. Additionally, we will examine the relationship between Asanas and Meridians, the flow of Qi in connective tissues, and the skillful adaptation of poses for individual needs.

In the Meditation section, we will cover key principles of meditation, various meditation practices, and different meditation methods. We will also explore Pranayama, focusing on it's effects on anatomy and the subtle body, along with practical Pranayama exercises.

Anatomy & Physiology

The Anatomy & Physiology section will include an in-depth study of anatomy guided by Sutra 14-10-7, covering the 14 skeletal segments, 10 myofascial groups, and 7 archetypal poses. We will analyze muscle groups, muscle contraction, skeletal variations, and the theories of exercise, tension, and compression.

In biomechanics, we will assess yin yoga poses, joint movements, range of motion tests, and the influence of proportion and orientation. Additionally, we will explore physiology, focusing on the nervous system (including the 'fight, flight, freeze' response), the roles of the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems, and the interrelationship between breath, meditation, and asana.

Yoga Humanities

The Yoga Humanities section will cover the history of yoga, with a focus on the evolution of alignment. We will delve into philosophical teachings, utilizing the learning model of Shravana, Manana, and Niddhidhyasa to explore the relationship between asana, pranayama, and meditation. Key texts such as Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras, the Bhagavad Gita, and the Yin Yoga Sutras by Paul Grilley will be examined. We will also reflect on yoga ethics and how they relate to personal practice and teaching, emphasizing self-reflection and ethical application in a teaching context.

Teaching Techniques & Sequencing

In the Professional Essentials section, we will cover teaching methodology, including sequencing in Yin Yoga, teaching principles, and teaching "The Rebound." We will explore the energy curve and mood (bhava) of a class, functional teaching techniques, variations, props, and adjustments. We will discuss the benefits and contraindications of poses, functional vs. aesthetic teaching descriptions, levels of functional awareness in teaching, and how to read skeletal variations. Additionally, we will address the business side of yoga, covering marketing, promotion, and professional organizations like the Yoga Alliance. The practicum will involve teaching skills, leading asanas, and crafting sequences to adapt asanas effectively.

    Yes! You don't need to be able to do a handstand or the splits to qualify for yoga teacher training. You don't even have to be sociable or comfortable speaking in front of a group of people. Many people go through yoga teacher training with no intention of actually teaching yoga. These people simply want to deepen their own yoga practice. Other people want to teach but need help gaining the confidence and experience to be at the top of the class. Yoga teacher training gives students plenty of practice teaching yoga classes. This training provides a safe space designed to help you develop your skills in a judgment-free zone. The only prerequisite for yoga teacher training is the curiosity to learn more about yin yoga and yourself!
  • Is the course suitable for experienced people?
    Yes. Curriculum developed by Yinspiration aims to deepen your knowledge and improve your practise to become more confident yoga instructor.
  • Can I teach Yin yoga after completing the teacher training course?
    You will find the tools you learn in this course to provide a solid foundation for starting to teach Yin Yoga. After completing this course most students gain strong motivation to continue practicing, due to their own internal changes, which are so strong that they see the benefits of the practice and therefore others can benefit from it as well.

You will receive a manual with the course program where you can take notes. Much of the work we do in this 200hrs Yin yoga teacher training is self-development work, and it requires your willingness to explore and practice in this way.
  • How to become a certified teacher?
    There is no legal body that oversees yoga. Legally and technically, anyone can call themselves a yoga teacher and offer classes. However, ethically this is not recommended. Even if you receive Yin yoga training that qualifies you to teach Yin yoga classes, you should complete a 200-hour teacher training program before teaching any style of yoga, at least by Yoga Alliance standards. A: If you already completed 200hrs training This training is a great addition to your yoga teacher training or simply a great refresher if you took one several years ago. This 200hrs training focuses on Yin, so if you did trainings from other styles of yoga, you will gain new knowledge and deepen your yin practice after completing the course. B: If you are not a teacher This training will deepen your knowledge of Yin yoga and help you improve your practice at home. After completing 200hrs course you will be officially certified to teach yoga.
  • Is the course accredited by the Yoga Alliance?
    Yes, Dominik is an experienced and registered yoga teacher trainer with Yoga Alliance USA (YACEP) and E-RYT500. The Yinspiration certificate obtained after participating in the entire course is recognized all over the world. Your hours may be used for further professional development and/or personal practice. This comprehensive training is designed in accordance with the requirements for registration with Yoga Alliance USA. Upon graduation, students may apply directly with Yoga Alliance USA for “RYT 200” yoga teacher status. All hours will need to be logged by you on the Yoga Alliance website and it is not possible for us to do this for you.
  • What happens if I miss training hours or a day of the course?
    To obtain a certificate of completion for 200hrs online course, you must complete each day of training to meet Yoga Alliance requirements. Live attendance on Zoom is optional. If you cannot attend all parts of the course, don't worry as you will have 2 months recording access. All the recorded materials won't be available for viewing after August 13th 2025. Please make sure to complete the training before the deadline.
  • What if I am not stretched?
    You don't have to be very fit or flexible to enjoy a teacher training course, become a great yoga teacher, and deepen your practice! The course is conducted in a friendly environment, without judgment or comparison to other participants. Every body is different and has a different range of motion, this will not be assessed in any way during the course.
  • Can I take part if I am pregnant or menstruating?
    Yes. Many of the women taking the course have children, are pregnant or have just had a baby and have learned to adapt their practice accordingly. The priority is always to feel safe in your practice and make sure you are taking care of yourself and maintaining your capabilities every time you practice. You don't need a teacher's permission on how to practice and what you choose to do or refrain from doing. Some courses, especially those that teach how to stimulate acupressure points, have an impact on the fetus, and therefore my knowledge of the participant's pregnancy is required, so as not to accelerate the delivery, etc. Practicing yoga during your menstrual cycle is completely safe, regardless of the position.
  • Will I be subject to any tests to obtain a certificate of completion of the training?
    No, you will not be assessed or tested in any way! It is a supportive and safe learning environment that emphasizes student autonomy and the ability to learn in any way.
  • Can I take the course if I don't plan to teach after completing it?
    Yes, you can participate. If you are a yoga student with a strong interest in developing your yoga practice, you can take a course to deepen your knowledge and experience for your own professional and personal development. One of the many benefits of yoga teacher training is that you can use it to deepen your own practice. For example, going through this process can help you understand: More about the physiology and practice of yoga and its effects on your body. Ways to improve personal concentration, level of self-awareness and knowledge of the capabilities of your own body. For example, you may receive corrections on how to effectively use breathing techniques. This correction wouldn't typically be available in a regular yoga class, so you can immediately see how teacher training goes into the smallest details.
