Yin Yoga Teacher Training 50 hour

Come learn the art and benefits of slowing down. This foundational program will immerse you in all things yin – philosophy, anatomy, poses, breath and meditations used in this quiet practice. The awareness that you will cultivate from this style of yoga, will inform other yoga & meditations practices, types of exercise and show you how to find your center among the busyness of life.
