Q: I’ve already been teaching Yin Yoga – will I learn anything in this training?

A: Gosh, I hope so. I learn something every time I take a training. If you’re already well-versed in Yin Yoga, I invite you to my Level 2 training. It’s actually designed to add depth to those who are already teaching Yin (and answer a few questions you may never have thought of).

Q: Am I going to learn more from your training(s) than from the book? It doesn’t seem that complicated.

A: You’re very right – Yin yoga isn’t that complicated. But you will learn new approaches to anatomy, from both the Eastern and Western perspectives, strategic ways to use props, and what a correctly instructed Yin practice actually feels like in your body.

Q: I’m already a trained Restorative Yoga teacher. Isn’t Yin pretty much the same?

A: It might look similar on the outside, but I believe that Yin and Restorative are fundamentally different, based on the intention of the practice. I have several experienced Restorative teachers who have taken my Yin training who agree – it’s a completely different ball game! Watch my video blog The Differences between Restorative Yoga and Yin Yoga to learn more.
