100 hour Vinyasa and Yin Yoga TTC
In this unique teacher training opportunity, we look at finding the balance between two fundamental opposing forces in the universe: yang and yin. The dynamic, powerful practice of vinyasa is known to be very ‘yang’; it’s fiery and sweaty and leaves you feeling energized. The softer practice of yin reflects the opposite quality; soft and nurturing, deep and meditative. Instead of attaching strongly to one of these qualities, instead, we look to find the balance between the two. Balance is a key concept for living a harmoniously and peacefully, and we believe the marriage of these two styles of yoga can assist you in finding balance elsewhere in your life.
Who can join?
This course is open to anyone with a desire to further their practice and knowledge in these two developing styles of yoga. It’s ideal for those who have done a previous training, and are looking to expand and develop their knowledge. Our 100 hour programs are also suitable for those who are not yet ready for the intensity or commitment of a 200 hour training but still want the opportunity to broaden their knowledge base.

Warm, salty breeze from the ocean or the fresh air with its mountain energy will fill your soul with happiness and calm.
