Program: 
 

This teacher training course will enable you to dive deep into your Yin energies and the profound Presence and inner peace that comes as a regular practice of both Yin yoga & yoga nidra. Our training takes place ina be autiful resort , in a retreat setting, while each day we will practice together and also learn how to share all these incredible tools with others. 
You can join this course if your intention is to teach Yin yoga & yoga nidra, but also if you wish to truly dive deep into yourself, and immerse yourself into these very transformational energies without any distraction, but maximum support and nourishing energy.

 

We will cultivate qualities such as stillness, receptivity, openness, surrendering, relaxation, acceptance, sacred activation through yoga nidra, intention, visualisations.


This will be a special edition, as you will practice Yin yoga, somatic Yin (that opens up as to truly sense the body's wisdom..) and also to trauma sensitive aspects of a yin yoga practice.
In addition to that we will lay down the fundamentals of yoga nidra. So that you are able to build a regular practice for yourself and to teach it to others as well. 

We will allow ourselves to be supported by the nourishing and organically spiritual aspects of Bali, to elevate ourselves to a deeper connectedness, where we find our inner answers, and we also learn how to guide others in this process.

 

We will also study the 5 elements theory of TCM, and of course all the fundamentals to Yin Yoga as well. All the poses, modifications, effects of the poses on organs, emotions, mental health and physical aspects of our life. And of course we will learn how to create transformational, healing and very resetting sequences and how to teach Yin yoga & Yoga nidra. 

We will have daily yoga practices to clean our bodies (yin yoga &yin-yang), and yoga nidra as well. 
We will be carried by the amazing energy on this magical spiritual island of BALI, and their super yummy vegan healthy meals from our wonderful resort.
Experience how vitality, aliveness will be rebirthed, renewed in all your cells, by living by the ocean , breathing the sacred breath and practicing ancient and creative sessions to ignite your connection to your true Self.

About your Teacher
 

Kata van Doesselaar  500hrs , EYRT200 is an experienced Yoga Teacher, breath & massage therapist, healer and coach. She is practicing yoga for 18 years, and teaching yoga for 15 years.
She has been trained in various styles (Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa) until she found her  Teacher Shiva Rea, that she learned the most from though many years of studies and assisting her. Then she joined some Yin and Mindfulness trainings with Sarah Powers, and more meditation trainings with Dzogchen Buddhist Lama Surya Das, and the Hridaya Yoga teachers.
Kata has been one of the very few teachers in the world who can offer Shiva Rea's unique full Prana Vinyasa 200hrs teacher training- being approved  and supported by Shiva. Nowadays she teaches her own trainings she created throughout her many many years and broad spectrum learning.

Besides her dynamic practice Kata was always enjoying stillness and meditation, so she was in Heaven when she discovered Yin Yoga. Being a very energetic Soul, Kata embraced the Yin yoga with open heart, and allowed the practice of letting go, stillness and surrendering to bring balance into her busy life. Having seen the huge impact that yin yoga did on her she went to study with Sarah Powers and Paul Grilley's senior teachers to learn all of it, so she can transmit the gifts of yin yoga in an authentic and pure way. Kata has been training with her Teachers more then 1000hrs.  Lately she is fascinated by fascia, nervous system and Chinese medicine connections..as she studies acupuncture in Spain. And fascia modules whenever she can.


Kata is now based on Ibiza.

Where together with her Life & Love Partner Erno van Doesselaar they run their own retreats and teacher trainings.
Besides the all year around trainings and workshops all around the globe, Kata is writing her book about feminine awakening...she has created her Goddess Tara oracle card, her Goddess Spirit - sacred feminine lifestyle sustainable fashion brand. And she is a mom of two children, and a happy mama of two dogs. 

She loves to share her rich experience of healing, self-healing, and her biggest passion is to inspire people to grow into their full potential, and find their true Self.

What the participants of our yin yoga trainings say:

The Yin Yoga Teacher Training in Ibiza was great! In a beautiful place with great yoga teachers and healthy food. The course was truly revealing, both physically and mentally, and Kata and Erno have a clear and inspiring way of teaching. I learned a lot about Yin Yoga. Theory and practice were well balanced. After I completed the course, I felt well prepared to teach. I already started teaching, and sharing Yin Yoga with other people, brings me a lot of joy. Thank you very much, Kata and Erno. You are great teachers.
As it was one of my first steps into this kind of experience, I can tell you, I'm a lucky person, that I found Kata and Erno offering their knowledge and enthusiasm in teaching on beautiful Ibiza. I felt safe accompanied by them during the whole stay. By taking us to magical spots like calm beaches and wood surrounded roof tops to feel the energy of the elements in meditation to dive deep into the Yin Space, I opened up to allow transforming inner and outer experiences. All in a joyful atmosphere, through feeling, they love what they do. Not enough space to mention everything here ... a private concert from their friends from Hang in Balance, accompaigning one of our sessions, super delicious organic food 3 times a day by wonderful chef
 energized me, beautiful villa, lots of knowledge about meridians, anatomy and energy, soulbreath- & yoganidra-sessions by amazing Erno helped me to calm down, guidance through Yin Practice by passionate shining teacher Kata...I loved it...helping through her wisdom and presence to connect deeper to myself! Wonderful! Thank you! Ingrid

It was an amazing training with great and experienced teachers and so nice and wise people Kata and Erno !! The place was wonderful, lovely villa in the middle of beautiful nature, food was really delicious (I loved the desserts!!!), the atmosphere during the week was so friendly, peaceful and kind !! I´m very lucky, that I had an opportunity to meet so many wonderful people!! Thank you all of you, thank you Mandy, that you cared so nice about us! Thank you Kata and Erno !! Alena

What a wonderful yin teacher training. Huge transformation, deepening of my understanding and learning from the best teachers!

We became a beautiful family at the end, so much love and care has been shared. Amazing great organic vegan meals, and special care of our organizers.

And a plus of the teacher training, so much has been shared about how to create sequences, and that is usually never explained. We gained so much, i feel confident to start o teach Yin yoga in my own studio, and i feel joy sharing the healing power of yin yoga.

A.

What did you gain from the Yin teacher training? 

I can only say that I gain myself back. 

As a whole me, My Dragon part as well as my human soul!

It’s been one of the most eye opening journeys in my life!

I liked learning about the meridians and healing/treatment aspect of yin. Which I haven’t experienced in normal yoga classes. 

I feel I have learnt a lot more about my body and how to read its signs. I’ve learnt the value and priority of this in my life, and the important of putting a lot more priority on my yoga, and yin practices. 

Mostly – it was the fabulous connections with some incredible ladies and powerful energies that I am still impacted by.
