Our Approach

This teacher training course approaches yoga from an energetical perspective, yet you will learn a lot about the physical part as well in a grounded , down to earth way. Yin& Yang is the symbol of polarities, that we encounter every where in our dualistic world. In our context yin is the principle of the feminine, receptive, still, intuitive, meditative quality, while yang is the principle of the masculine, active, expressing quality. In the cosmic order these two qualities have their eternal flow, dance where they always balance each other out and come back to balance. In our lives we have these qualities as well , but sometime we get out of balance.. Especially as most of us live in a western society, where usually the “doing” part is exaggerated and there is little time space for nurturing the quietude, the receptivity, and the connection to our own Source.


About Yin Yoga

It is a deeply meditative style, rooted in Daoism and traditional Hatha Yoga. We work mainly with floor poses, that we hold for longer time, creating deep stretching effect on muscles, ligaments, tendons, and the fascia, at the same time compressing the joints and bones.
Through yin yoga we activate the energy flow in the energy channels (meridians- Traditional Chinese Medicine), clearing blockages and creating a better flow of chi, life force energy, nurturing our organs and our whole system in general.
This is beautiful practice to deepen mindful and soulful awareness and it also works on our deeper layers of the physical bodies (versus yang practice mainly working with the superficial muscles). In yin yoga we have access to the connective tissues, like joints, bones, ligaments, and tendons and of course the fascia that connects all the parts of our body as a net. 

With our popular Yin teacher training module you will be able to create a Yin class or session, long or short for a group, for an individual session, or for yourself. You will learn transition poses and intelligent ways of sequencing - taking in consideration pose families, anatomical guidelines, and meridian therapy. You will be enabled to work on a one-on-one with clients with specific needs, complaints, and anatomical constitution. 

With our Yang teacher training module you will be able to create a soulful, energizing, uplifting flow class based on energetical sequencing, connected to the meridians, and the five elements, and according to an anatomical approach (sequence for hips, shoulders, etc) .
You will learn the basic poses both for the yin and the yang practices and you will be able to blend them together in a beautiful harmonious way. To promote balance, healing, growth on the soulful journey. 

We will study mantras, mudras and breathing techniques, as well as specific meditations.

You will be staying in a natural area about 10 min by car from Santa Eulalia. Welcome to our private Yoga Retreat Villa, which is  a beautiful cozy and traditional home for our trainings in a nice, calm and peaceful setting. The rooms are available in double or single occupancy. The villa has a private pool that you can use during the free time, a huge garden. Our villa is at 6 min walk from one of the most precious beach. White sand, crystal clear water. Far away from crowds. 

In some cases (NOT IN COVID TIMES) You can also choose an offsite accommodation with Rise & Shine Yoga's suggestion, and you can also choose a hotel on your own and join the training every day in the morning.



This Yin-Yang yoga teacher training will enable you to create the "Yin space" - the quality and energy within yourself - so it can enrich and balance your life, and so you will be able to offer it to others. The peaceful, compassionate allowing presence that heals all imbalances by just "being with it".

You will learn how to allow yourself to feel emotions, intensity, to reopen shut down senses, and then to able to let all the sensations and emotions (emotion means energy in motion) flow and go instead of diving into the story of it and holding onto them. 

You will also be able to tap into a balanced Yang quality, how to move and act without efforting, without overdoing, without burning yourself out. Creating balance in our practice, in our life and our teachings as yoga teachers.

Tantric and mindful Buddhist approach

This course is a deeply transformative healing journey, as only by healing and loving yourself first then you can offer these qualities to other, by going trough the experience instead of just talking about the theories of it. There will be a lot of focus on your personal experience and opening up to senses, listening, and landing in your true nature.


Yin yoga has a deeply healing effect. And even tough every person is different, every story is different, and a healing process requires not only the realizations of the patterns and underlying emotional memories and tensions behind every disease but also new conscious choices about your life, you can acknowledge that with appropriate sequences you can rebalance major imbalances in the body with regular Yin practice.

The body imbalances such as allergies, digestive, hormonal problems, back problems, mental problems, blood pressure problems, anxiety symptoms, emotional blockages, and lack of energy, and the emotional disorders such as lack of determination, trust and confidence, anger problems, depression, fears can all be nurtured by appropriate Yin practice with great results.

Eventually, it can transform your life into a more loving, more still, more attentive and caring, enjoyable journey, than the fast-paced western pattern.

Adding the yang to the yin, you will be able to get into a soulful flow which moves so much fresh and balanced energy in your body that it can release much easier tensions, and you can step onto a higher, brighter state of awareness yourself.
