“Knowledge is power. Knowledge of yourself is self-empowerment.“
– Joe Dispenza
During this training, YOU will be the focus of attention. Whether you want to deepen and personalize your own yoga practice, promote your personal growth, or begin on the path of becoming a Yin Yoga teacher, you are in the right place.
The functional, open-minded and exploratory approach that José adopts in this training, will support you in becoming a self-confident yogi and a compassionate teacher. One who shares and practices yoga in a competent and liberating way; honoring and respecting different bodies, possibilities and needs of oneself and others.
This liberating and empowering approach cultivates Compassion and allows you to embrace all that You are, through practising yoga from Your Experience and in Your Way.
By accepting that we are all different you will stop comparing yourself with others. You won’t feed your ego nor create unrealistic expectations. This helps to create more peace, freedom and joy for yourself, others and the world.
It is my goal that after this ONLINE Teacher Training you will be able to:
By translating your understanding of the Functional approach to yoga combined with Yin yoga philosophy, Meridian stimulation & theory, Human anatomy, Meditation, Pranayama and Asana, you can offer yoga classes suitable for everyone, regardless of age, experience and flexibility.
You will come to understand that ‘one alignment for all’ does not work and learn to recognise and honour the infinite varieties in bodies, minds and possibilities.
With compassion and self-confidence, gained by personal work and energetic insights and awareness.
Grow, transform and nourish yourself independently with the knowledge and tools gained in this training. From that authentic basis you can then inspire your students to do their ‘inner work’ within their yoga practice as well.
Analyse and practice the upper and lower body Yin yoga poses and discover their nourishing effects. Explore modifications and alternatives for Yin Yoga poses and learn how to practice, sequence and teach them functionally. This means being guided by the experience of the asana (what works for you) and not by the aesthetic performance (how the pose should look like). Discover how Yin Yoga poses can stimulate meridians and encourage healthy Chi flow, using Elemental and Meridian Theory as a foundation to support and enhance overall well-being.
The foundation of this ONLINE training is the functional and holistic approach in which Anatomy, Yoga Philosophy and Eastern Health theories are combined. Learn about the variations in human anatomy and physiology (bones, joints, muscle groups, fascia, organs) and the concepts of target areas, tensions versus compression and functional yoga. Explore the principles of Eastern philosophies on health and life (Yoga Sutras, Taoism, Meridian Stimulation & Theory, Chi, 5 Element Theory). Practicing and teaching yoga using this functional and holistic approach will help initiate profound physical, emotional, and mental shifts in yourself and your students.
Learn to give personal adjustments and how to effectively use props in Yin Yoga poses in an online and/or in-person setting. You will be able to inspire students to experiment and play around with their bodies in order to get the benefits of the asanas. Additionally, you can encourage your students to open and strengthen themselves in a beneficial way without causing unnecessary pain or injuries.
Pranayama and Orbiting Energy practices support and enhance the effects of a Yin Yoga practice.Learn how to practice and guide various pranayama and orbiting energies techniques. Mastering these practices helps you to release blockages and break through patterns.
Through meditation and mindfulness learn to be present and in the moment, to observe without action or react from a nonjudgmental state of mind. Mastering the art of being present enables you to connect with your students in the moment and to create a compassionate atmosphere in your in-person and/or online yoga classes so your students feel safe enough to open up to whatever arises.
The functional approach (what works for you) used in this ONLINE training is liberating and empowering; it allows you to be who you are without excuses or unrealistic expectations. You will develop the ability to accept everything as it is and to be compassionate to yourself and others. This can be applied to everything you do and creates an open mindset to endless possibilities. Throughout the training you will become aware of your personal qualities, pitfalls and challenges and how that affects your behavior. This awareness can motivate you to change and grow.

We will keep encouraging Yoga Alliance to change its policies and if things change we will keep informed. It’s good to keep in mind that Yoga Alliance is not a governing body, but an association that offers a register. You are not required to have Yoga Alliance-certified training to be able to teach, though some yoga schools ask for it in order to teach under their name.
If you don’t want to become a yoga teacher, you don’t have to teach yourself during the training. But you do attend the classes taught by fellow students.

José believes that having a minimum level of experience, allows you to experiment with and integrate the teachings of this ONLINE training better. Apart from that, she believes that you should always first experience the Yin Yoga path yourself before you can communicate this in your classes.
If you have any questions, please contact José.
Spreading the ONLINE training over 10-11 months is a very conscious choice. José finds it important that trainees have time to practice, experiment, study and integrate. In this way, you can enter your own process of transformation, build your self-confidence and embody what you have learned.
Outside of the online contact sessions via Zoom, you will have the opportunity to start teaching and practicing yoga using the functional approach. This will give you insights and bring about certain questions, which you can share during the following Zoom sessions.
Of course, this is entirely up to you and varies per person.
The homework and assignments on the e-learning platform are designed to support the material covered in the online Zoom sessions and in the 50 and 30-hour Modules. They are intended to help you integrate the teachings into your own practice and the way you teach. You can make these assignments as often as you like, remember repetition is the key to learning in a relaxed way.
Practising with your fellow students on- and/or offline is very valuable because you can learn from each other and they are able to give constructive feedback.
On average you can assume:
Many of my trainees start teaching in small studios, gyms or in private with friends and family during the training. As a result, they make a lot of flying hours and can confidently increase their classes after obtaining their certificate.
The content of this ONLINE training is so extensive and deepening that it is an excellent basis to start your career as a yoga teacher.
The language used in the online Zoom sessions, 50 and 30-hour Modules and materials (PowerPoint, manuals and suggested books and DVDs) is English.
But as José speaks Dutch and Spanish she can – if needed – answer specific questions in those languages.
José’s online Yin Yoga training has been an eye-opener. I learned about the meridians, balancing the chi flow, and the theory of the elements. We learned how to adjust online and gained awareness of our own personalities as a teacher. José teaches in a clear and joyful way and explains even the tougher information lightly in her videos. For me, these lectures and practising the newly acquired information immediately through the recorded classes have been very effective. We could also join José’s online live classes throughout the year! Having the option to rewatch some lectures if necessary was an advantage of being an online training. As a class, we bonded and will stay connected after our training. It has been a truly insightful and rewarding journey. Thank you
For me, the Yin Teacher Training started as a bold project in a period when I was just coming out of parental leave, still searching for and reevaluating my professional self-worth and purpose. What I did not expect was also the therapy that came hand in hand while learning and working more intensely with the body and with the existing thought patterns. I believe the training is very well prepared and I really enjoyed connecting online with the teacher and the colleagues, the materials, all the information and practices. I appreciated the online benefits, that we had this training over almost one year (it helped sediment the information) and I could follow it in my own time. In the end, for me, it was the best choice. The teaching methods, (the dances, the singing, all … ) are really really helpful in the learning process. It was also a relief for me to better understand the specifics of my body and to let go of the “I am not flexible enough” thought pattern. I truly believe that functional teaching is a blessing for anybody and any mind that considers itself “not…enough”. I feel Jose is knowledgeable, giving, warm, empathic, and helpful. In short, I really really recommend it from the bottom of my heart.
