100 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training Bali
4 - 18 November
Are you looking for more balance and harmony in your life? Are you curious to explore a deeper world through a quieter and gentle yoga practice? Or maybe you’re a yoga teacher looking to compliment your offerings.
100 hour Yin Yoga teacher training in Bali is medicine for our fast-paced modern lifestyles that demand a lot from us. Yin Yoga teacher training in Bali invites us to slow down, take time to get to know ourselves and to discover a new way of being on and off the mat.
Daily stress can take a toll on our physical, mental and emotional bodies. It has been attributed to many health conditions such as hyper-tension, leaky gut, insomnia, headaches and depression. 100 hour Yin yoga teacher training in Bali brings space into the body and mind by releasing blocked energy and emotions, assisting you to rewind your whole being.
The term yin comes from the Taoist concept of Yin Yang. Yang is dynamic in nature that is associated with doing, achieving, growing and expansion. Yin is the quieter, slower, more inward nature and the two together form a complete whole. This is why when you explore or teach yin yoga, it will bring balance and harmony into your life and that of your students.
