Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Marije Paternotte


Yin Yoga Teacher Training "A Journey Into a Silent Practice"

You are invited on a journey into silence. In this Yin Yoga Teacher Training of 75 hours you will learn and explore the basic principles of the Taoist practice of Yin Yoga, Pranayama and Mindfulness Meditation. This training will allow you to teach this practice with confidence, as ample time will be dedicated to the art of teaching, based on a solid and effective teaching methodology.
Marije is a long-time student of Sarah Powers. This training is based on what she has learned from Sarah, Paul Grilley, and Bernie Clark, and her own experience as a dedicated practitioner and teacher trainer.
Students who do not wish to teach but simply want to deepen their practice and understanding of Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation are equally welcome in the training.

About the Yin Yoga Training at Inlet Yoga

-This training can also be taken as an Immersion by completing only Part 1, or Part 1 and Part 2.

Part 1 - The Physical Body: 30 hours
Part 2 - The Energy Body: 30 hours
Part 3 - The Mental Body: 15 hours

Please note: In order to receive certification, your attendance for the full training is required. If training time is missed, you will be required to schedule privates with Marije outside of regular training hours, which will incur an extra cost. This will be determined on a case-by-case basis.

The 30 and 60-hour Immersion will not lead to a teaching certificate.

Those taking the Immersion are asked not to teach the practice of Yin Yoga until after receiving certification.

In the case of a snow-day or other unforeseen circumstances, a Saturday is reserved as a “make-up” day.

Extra hours:

The onsite-training will consist of 75 contact hours. Students will be required to complete additional hours of self-study (as per further instructions), practice, and read the required reading material. Expect to dedicate additional hours during the training to take classes, and to prepare for practice teaching and the final exam.
