About this course

Yin and Restorative Yoga are becoming more popular as people discover the need for slow, mindful yoga to complement their busy and active lifestyles. This course will enable you to teach these styles of yoga, guiding your clients towards reducing stress and promoting relaxation.
This four-day course provides an explanation and experience of Yin Yoga and prepares you to plan and deliver Yin Yoga classes. An introduction to Restorative Yoga is also included, with an exploration of how these two styles complement each other.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga is a slow, meditative style of yoga where postures are mainly floor-based. It has become a popular style of yoga in recent years, providing a balance to more active or “Yang” styles of yoga such as Vinyasa Flow. It also provides a much-needed balance for the active pace of modern life.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative yoga is a distinct but complementary style of yoga, utilizing techniques that allow the body to rest and encourage deep relaxation.
