Yin Yoga Adjustments Workshop – Part 1

24 September 2021 - 26 September 2021, School voor Tai Chi Chuan Utrecht, Netherlands

with José de Groot

Practice, deepen and improve your adjusting skills and knowledge of how to use props for the lower body Yin yoga poses with this workshop! 


During this practical weekend you will have intensive practice of adjusting and using props for the 20 lower body Yin yoga poses.

The weekend’s objective is to deepen and repeat the functions and accompanying cues of the Yin yoga poses with their anatomical principles (muscles, movements and joints of the torso and legs). Why is this so essential? The cues, principles and functions form the basis for teaching Yin yoga classes, and for providing personalised and creative adjustments for your current and/or future students; whose physical abilities will be individual and varied.

On Friday night we will repeat the theoretical anatomical principles and concepts, finishing with a one-hour Yin yoga practice, leaving you well-prepared for the practical  weekend ahead. Saturday and Sunday will begin with a one-hour Yin yoga practice, to start your day in a Yin manner, and to recognise the functional descriptions and adjustments of the poses. After a short break we will look at adjustments and prop usage for the 20 lower body Yin yoga poses, both individually as well as in small groups.




  • Former Students who would like to further improve and repeat their adjustment skills of the 20 lower body yin poses, as was taught in the first half of the Teacher Training and in the 50-hour or 100-hour Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training Part 1 with José.
  • Yin yoga teachers, who have done their teacher training elsewhere.
  • Regular Yin yoga practitioners, who like to gain more insight in how to adjust the poses making their practice more personalised.
  • Also very useful for people who want to exercise injury-free beyond the scope of yoga.




Workshop attendees who have not done the Anatomy & Yin Yoga TT part 1 with José, have to buy the Manual (40 €) with anatomical principles and functions of the 20 Yin poses. This in preparation for the workshop.

* The manual can be bought separately – for details please contact José


What to bring


  • The reader that you received for Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training Part 1.
  • The notes and/or assignments for: functions and cues for the 20 lower body Yin yoga poses.
  • Please bring your own yogamat.
  • Some easy-to-carry props such as: blanket, blocks, a belt and a pillow or bolster. Consider what you may need during your Yin yoga practice.
  • Yin Yoga is a passive form of yoga where we don’t generate much heat through asanas. So keep yourself warm and comfortable, wear layers, warm socks and if you get cold easily you might want to bring a blanket with you.
  • Bring a fluid-container that you can close. Open containers with fluids are not allowed in the yogaroom.





To be well prepared for this workshop, it is advisable to study the following:

  • The “additional notes” in the reader.
  • The muscles and the muscle group names of the ‘Torso and Thigh Mandalas’.
  • The movements of the joints. Not only the names of the movements, but also the number of possible movements that each individual joint can make.
  • The notes and/or assignment on ‘functions and cues for the 20 lower body Yin yoga poses’. Think of: stretch, compression (wanted/unwanted) and the desired target areas of the poses.


* If you have taken a different Yin Yoga Teacher Training, you will have to look up the muscles that belong to the muscle groups of the ‘Torso and Thigh Mandalas’ – see reader. Also revisit the cues you use for the 20 lower body Yin yoga poses. 





After adequate completion of all contact hours (15 hours) and homework assignments (10 hours) you can receive a certificate of 25 hours.
Students who have participated in the 50 hour Anatomy & Yin Yoga TT Part 1 with José, can use these hours to complement their 50-hour certificate. For more information, please contact José
