This course is a deeply transformative healing journey, as only by healing & loving ourselves FIRST we 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, 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, underlying emotional memories and tensions behind every dis-ease, but also new conscious choices about your life, we can acknowledge that with appropriate sequences you can rebalance major imbalances in the body with regular yin practice.
Such as allergies, digestive, hormonal problems, back problems, mental problems, blood pressure problems, anxiety symptoms, emotional blockages, lack of energy. 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 transforming our life into a more loving, more still, more attentive and caring, enjoyable journey, then the fast paced western pattern.
About the Teachers
Kata van Doesselaar EYRT500 , EYRT200 is an experienced Yoga Teacher, breath & massage therapist, healer and coach. She is practicing yoga for 15 years, and teaching yoga for 10 years.
She has been trained in various styles (Iyengar, Ashtanga, Vinyasa) until she found her Maha Teacher Shiva Rea, that she feels the most inspired by.
So Kata's primary style became the Prana Vinyasa Flow Yoga (Krishnamacharya lineage) that Los Angeles based Shiva Rea founded, and she still keeps learning from it as a life long student.
The last couple of years Kata became an assistant teacher in Shiva's teacher trainings, that fills her heart with passion and joy. And she is 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.
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.
Kata is now based in the Netherlands and Ibiza.
In the Netherlands she runs her own yoga studio together with her Life & Love Partner Erno van Doesselaar. On Ibiza they run their own retreats and teacher trainings.
Besides the weekly classes at her studio, Kata is offering workshops, retreats and teacher trainings internationally. As a mother of two children, and her rich experience of healing, self-healing, her biggest passion is to inspire people to grow into their full potential, and find their true Self.
Erno van Doesselaar is a breath therapist coach, and a yoga teacher 200hrsYA. Being on his journey of self discovery since an early age, he learned to work with energies, and conscious intention. He has been trained in consciousness schools to learn how to transform belief systems, emotional patterns, that are limiting our life experience. His main passion is to dive deeper and deeper into the soulful connection with his True Self and get his inspiration from his Soul every day. He has been learning and practicing the Soulbreath for more then 10 years now, the breath that is our divine breath, that awakens our divinty, our true nature. He has been watching this Breath changing and healing his life entirely.
A few years ago he also discovered that Yin Yoga is so suitable to that Soulful journey, as he started to practice it more and more with Kata, and decided to learn to teach it as well. Erno has completed besides several Breath Teacher trainings and Spiritual Trainings, Yin Yoga teacher trainings and a Yoga Nidra Teacher Training. He is adding the depth of the Soulful Breath to our Teacher Training in Ibiza.

What the participants of our previous trainings said:
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 Jila 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.
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.
