Online 200hr Yin Yoga, Anatomy & Meridian Teacher Training

12 March - 15 January 2023, Online Event – Zoom,

with Jose de Groot

This 200 hour Yoga Alliance certified online & in person training combines the best of both worlds with online learning, interactive online support, in-person sessions, study groups and more, making this training available to you no matter where you are.


This training invites you to deepen your practice and dive into an exploration of your own body and inner world. You’ll learn to empower your students to discover and trust their own bodies and adapt the practice to suit them. Translate your understanding of the Yin yoga philosophy, Meridian theory and elemental theory, anatomy and asana into a personalised and safe practice for yourself and others.


From day one José will guide you in deepening your practice and encourages your skills to become a confident and creative teacher. To become a source of inspiration begins with your own personal yoga practice, both on and off the mat. Yoga is not just physical, but a practice of the heart, mind and spirit. Be prepared to discover your mental and physical tendencies through this journey.


Discover together the healing benefits of Yin yoga!



The Training At A Glance


Access 80 hours of pre-recorded lectures and classes. Includes a 50 hour module on Yin & Anatomy plus a 30 hour module on Yin & Meridians.

We will meet in the Netherlands for 2 x four day modules for teaching practice and ESSENTIAL sessions on lower and upper body Yin poses, assessment and adjustments. If travelling to the Netherlands is absolutely not possible, then we can discuss virtual attendance options.

Feel even more connected with the group with ‘check-in’ zoom sessions. PLUS get more personalised attention with intimate mentoring sessions within smaller study groups.

Join José every month for a 90 minute Yin Yoga Practice. Participation is mandatory either live or via recording.

Access José’s e-learning platform to find and submit all of your homework, complete quizzes and complete your exams.


Suitability & requirements

This Training is open to anyone who would like to deepen their own Yin practice and/or give personalized in person and/or online Yin yoga classes in the future. Because of the great understanding of the human body (anatomy and skeletal variations) that you gain, this training is also very relevant for people who want to exercise injury-free beyond the scope of yoga, because you understand how to move your body in a way that is beneficial for you as a unique individual.

This training is also very suitable for those who are looking for spiritual and personal development. This combination makes the training a transformational experience.

Because of the emphasis on the energetic aspect of yoga practice and how you can use this for your inner journey, the training is also very enriching for (future) yoga coaches.



Experience with the Yin yoga practice is required. You don’t have to be an advanced practitioner, but you certainly have a good basis. This means:

  • You have at least 6 months of experience in practicing Yin yoga
  • You have to be physically able to practice a 60 or 90 minute Yin asana class.
  • You can read and learn in English. Written assignments can be completed in Dutch, English or Spanish. The theory exam is multiple choice and is taken in English.

Are you questioning if your Yin experience is sufficient? Please contact José and together we will discuss options on how to get enough experience to start the training.
