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. 


About Yang Yoga

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 latest anatomy knowledge, functional approach, and how to make a yoga practice safe and sustainable for all, adaptations, modifications and assists. 

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.

What is the Yin energy about?

It is the nourishing, stabilizing, calming, allowing, sensing and feeling quality within ourselves, the ability to drop down into the Presence that contains it all, or restores it all. Just Be.


What is the Yang energy about?

It is our ability to rise, to focus, to be strong and achieve some things in life. Engagement, action, achievements, dedication.

What are the Chinese 5 elements about?

WATER: Vitality, courage, confidence, ability to flow with life, and trust the changes, intuition.
WOOD: Creativity, balance, growth focus, manifestation, vision and holding it all together.
EARTH: Stability, ability to feel home, accepted, nourished, loved and supported. Our needs and our connection to our physical body. Topics such as eating and rest, rhythms, rituals, routines. 

FIRE: Connection to our Spirit, our light, our enthusiasm, joy of life and ability to share and connect, communicate and express.

METAL: Our ability to look at life from a higher perspective, attachments and detachment, letting go and highest purpose, ambitions, and inner leadership, learning and connection to God, a higher Spirit. Values in life. Sacredness, gratitude.

In this training we will explore all these elements and learn to work with them in our yoga practices, teachings and classes. 

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.
