Yin & Restorative Yoga Teacher Training

Yandara's Yin & Restorative Yoga Training is a 9-day elective course of the Yandara Advanced 300 Hour Yoga Teacher Training Program. During these 9 nourishing days together, we will explore the practices and principles of Yin & Restorative Yoga. We will prioritize the body-mind-spirit connection and the cultivation of a calmer state of being through these daily regenerative and healing yoga practices. Upon completion of this course, students that are already registered with Yoga Alliance at the 200 hour level will be credited with 100 hours toward Yandara’s Advanced 300 hour Yoga Alliance Certification. We also welcome dedicated practitioners and yoga teachers to attend this course simply as a yoga retreat to deepen your practice or for Yoga Alliance Continuing Education (YACEP) credits.

Allison Eaton teaches Yandara's Yin & Restorative Yoga programs together with the Yandara Team.

Program Description: 

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga includes longer held, therapeutic seated and floor postures, supported by props, to
optimize range of motion and energy flow through the joint tissue - while emphasizing hip & lower back
health. Yin Yoga cultivates inner listening, heightened awareness and intuition, acceptance and compassion.

Restorative Yoga

Restorative Yoga focuses on a deep relaxation of the nervous system, while enhancing your body’s ability to regenerate and restore itself on multiple levels of body, mind and spirit. These deeply restful poses are completely passive and fully supported by yoga props. Ahhhh!
