  • You will IMMERSE yourself in expanding your practice, deepening your knowledge, and an inward journey of self-study.

Yin yoga is the greatest compliment to the many yang practices at The Hot Room. Yin works your ligaments, fascia, joints and bones that are not usually exercised and requires stillness so that you can give your body and mind space to heal. This training will equip you with the tools you need to offer a powerful Yin yoga class at The Hot Room. In 40-hours you will learn about:

  • Yin History & Yoga Philosophy
  • Basic Postures
  • Theming and Sequencing Mental Management
  • Traditional Chinese Medicine & 5 Element Theory
  • The Subtle Energy Body

You will build on your current expertise as a teacher and deepen and expand what you bring to your teaching and to your leading.  This training will also give you impactful tools to develop and evolve your self-study as a teaching and personal growth tool.


Evolve your lens as teacher and leader to integrate functional anatomy and body mechanics, sequencing and theming, history and philosophy to create an overall experience that cultivates whole health and well-being.
