Are you ready to dive deep into the very core of your being?

Feel INSPIRED and EMPOWERED in your life, practice and teaching. Yoga doesn’t stop at the physical aspect of the practice, so we won’t either! In this training we go beyond skeletal variations and asanas, and dive into the core of our ‘BEING’. Our way in is our body, our focus is holistic through the lens of Yoga Philosophy, Meridian theory & Systemic theory.

 

Our system operates within the balance between our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. If there is an imbalance in one, it will automatically disrupt the other three. If there is energetic harmony, then you yourself will feel energetic and creative, your life flowing effortlessly, joyfully and freely. In this training we encourage you to trust your gut feeling, breaking free from the interferences of the mind to find your own balance. Discover the power of play and listen to your heart. Become aware of your thought patterns, emotional reactions, physical sensations etc, and use the tools of yoga to access your authentic self. 

ARE YOU ENTHUSIASTIC, EAGER TO LEARN & INTERESTED IN PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT?

Then this really is the training for you.

 

We invite you to play, experiment and explore with what feels right for you, and what doesn’t. Attending this training will give you a comprehensive understanding of Yin yoga philosophy, Meridian theory, anatomy, asana and your own inner workings. Learn to adapt poses within the physical and emotional boundaries of yourself and your students. Learn to feel what is needed in any moment, and connect with your heart and inner wisdom, using the yoga practices to empower your students and trigger transformations.

 

Yoga goes beyond the physical practice alone, it is a connection with your heart, mind and soul.

 

YOU will be the focus during this Teacher Training. Everyone is unique and the possibilities are endless and this ethos provides us with enough light & space to grow. Whether you want to deepen your own practice, immerse yourself in spiritual and personal growth, or become a yoga teacher or coach, you are in the right place. It is your experience, your exploration, your path.

The Power of play and fun

A core approach in our training is encouraging an attitude of openness and exploration. FUN COMES FIRST, to help you to become a confident yogi and an open-minded teacher. Share yoga from a playful and lighthearted mindset grounded in a foundation of safe, functional and personal yoga principles.

 

LET GO

 

Let go of how poses are ‘supposed’ to be performed. Let go of how others do it. Let go of how your ‘ego’ feels it should be done.

 

Distinguish yourself from other yoga teachers by:

  • Teaching and practicing yoga in a confident, personalised, safe and impactful way by having an in depth understanding of Yin yoga philosophy, Meridian theory, anatomy and asana 
  • Relate and connect with your students in a real and meaningful way by working on your own awareness, and connection with your unique self. 
  • Empower your students and guide them in their own growth using the tools you’ve learnt on your own journey. 

 

Life is a playground, with infinite possibilities. You get to choose, every moment, again and again. Be bold, think big, play around!

NEW ADDITION

 

Systemic work with Sanne Blom

Turn your wounds into wisdom

A new & unique addition to this 300 hour training: Systemic work with Sanne Blom systeemyoga©

 

This is the first Yoga Teacher Training in which Systemic therapy and Family Constellations is integrated to enhance the quality and empathy of you, as a yoga teacher. As teachers we dream of making a difference and being of service to others. But in order to serve in a heart-fueled, healing manner we have to embody ‘our own wholeness’ first. In the end it’s our energy that inspires students and invites them to grow and transform. 

 

Your teacher, Sanne, using a unique approach towards Systemic therapy and Family Constellations, will inspire you to explore a different way of perceiving your inner landscape, revealing new insights into how it affects the world around you.. including your classes!

 

During sessions with Sanne, you’ll evaluate your system(s), revealing invisible feelings, patterns and trauma’s. Find clarity and begin to understand, heal and release your blockages in a safe and supportive environment. Set yourself free.

What will you learn?

  • Asana

    We will study 35 Yin asanas and their healing effects on the body (physical, mental, emotional and energetic). You’ll learn how to practice yoga poses functionally and safely, by focusing on feeling and experiencing the asana ( what works for you ), rather than simply performing the asana as it ‘should be’.

     

    You will learn how Yin Yoga poses can stimulate meridians and balance Chi flow, by using Traditional Chinese Medicine and Meridian Theory as a foundation, to support and enhance your and your future student’s overall wellbeing.

  • Anatomy & Eastern (yoga) philosophies on health and life

    To have a holistic approach to your practice and teachings José likes  to fully integrate knowledge of anatomy, yoga philosophy and Eastern health theories. On the one hand we study the anatomical and physiological facets of our body (bones, muscles, fascia, joints, organ functions etc.) and on the other hand we study the basic principles of Eastern philosophies on health and life (e.g. Taoism, Meridian theory, Chi, 5 elements theory, Yoga Sutras).

     

    José will teach you how to use the Eastern principles functionally in your classes, in order to initiate profound physical, emotional, and mental shifts in you and your students.

  • Intelligently sequence and teach safe, personalised, creative and inspiring yoga classes

    With your knowledge of the human body and a holistic view on movement, you will inspire others to explore their own bodies, and be able to open and strengthen themselves with a free body, mind and soul. In connection with the essence.

     

    The training covers a total of 35 training days, of which 2 online. You will learn how to create a high-quality ánd personal yoga class in an online environment.

     

    All of José’s teachings are driven by her understanding of the skeleton-variation system, as she learned it from her teacher Paul Grilley; the founder of Yin yoga.

  • Exploring the layers and self-healing abilities of your unique body

    The basic principles of Taoism, Meridian theory, 5 Element Theory and the Yoga Sutras, help you to understand your constitution and how to restore physical, emotional and mental imbalance through yoga poses, meditation, pranayama, family systems theory, energetic consciousness and lifestyle. You’ll experience what it is like to truly live from a place of connection with yourself and with everything and everyone around you.

     

    Explore the abilities and layers of your unique body with an open mind, making your personal Yin practice beneficial, fun and profound. As you walk your spiritual path of exploration, you will gather tools on how to pass on your wisdom and make your yoga classes relevant on a spiritual healing level too.

     

    We help you to deepen your own practice from an open and playful mindset, to do your ‘inner work’ and then pass your wisdom on in your own classes

  • Adjusting in a personalised way

    You will learn how to effectively use props and how to give personal adjustments. With your knowledge of the human body (skeletal variation) and a holistic view on movement (everything is energy and connected each other), you will inspire students to explore their bodies, to stimulate the chi flow in the meridians and to open and strengthen themselves in a beneficial way without unnecessary pain or injuries.

     

    Result: a free body, mind and soul, able to achieve anything from a stable connection with your essence.

  • Pranayama techniques

    Pranayama (breath work) is essential in the path of yoga. It supports the healing effects of the Yin practice on a physical, as well as an energetic and emotional level.

     

    During the training you will learn how to guide yourself and others in the pranayama practice and adjust the intensity to a level that is most beneficial at that moment. Mastering various pranayama techniques helps you to gradually open yourself up, breaking through patterns and releasing blockages, you will learn to feel the more subtle energies in and around your body.

  • Become an authentic and empowered teacher

    In the 25 hour module by Sanne Blom, you’ll become familiar with Sanne’s unique approach on how to apply inner (systemic) work within a yin yoga class.

     

    You will learn to cultivate a stable and centered inner groundedness and gain a clear vision on:

     

    • What attitude and role you embody and how this affects the group
    • The quality of your own energy while teaching and how to work from an energetic alignment, capable of holding a safe and sacred space for your student
    • How you can guide students in a safe manner and simultaneously encourage them to rely on their own capabilities and intuition

     

    All of Sanne’s teachings are driven by her understanding of Systemic Therapy and Family Constellations, as she learned it from the theory of Bert Hellinger; the founder of Family Constellations. Sanne herself developed her own vision on therapeutic training and life science, from which this 25 hour module on systemic therapy and family constellations stems. This module is also a pre-training of the Systeemyoga© Teacher Training developed by Sanne.

  • Mastering the art of being present

    Through meditation and mindfulness you learn to be comfortably and calmly present in the moment, to observe without action or reaction from a nonjudgmental state of mind. Mastering the art of being present and developing a peaceful mind, enables you to really connect with yourself and with your students, creating a safe and calm energy in your classes allowing students to feel safe to open up to whatever arises.

  • The spiritual path of personal growth: your inner journey

    Anything is possible, physically as well as mentally and emotionally. We are made to expand, grow and shine. So everything that comes across your path wants to show you something. Everything that you neglect , contains a lesson that will return again and again (these are patterns) until the lesson is learned and integrated.

     

    In this so-called (emotional) darkness lies your growth, it is the opening for your light. We humans are able to reprogram our thoughts and behaviors, which enables you to achieve anything in this life. Yes, you too! As long as you do it in a way and pace that feels right for you. As long as you keep acknowledging your uniqueness along the way.

     

    Get to know your inner being, your essence, your core and feel free for life.

Anatomy, Physiology and Eastern Philosophies on Health & Life

An holistic approach in which Anatomy, Yoga Philosophy, Systemic theory and Eastern Health theories (5 elements, chi and meridians) of the human body are combined, is the foundation of this training. It is the base for teaching beneficial, safe and personalized Yin yoga classes. You will learn about: bones, movements, joints, muscles, fascia, organ functions, meridian pathways, chi, Taoism, Yoga Sutras, Meridian Theory, 5 Elements Theory, Systemic Theory and Family Constellations.

 

You will study the anatomical, Meridian and 5 Elements theories in a practical and playful way. We will use the power of repetition and the sensitivity of all of our senses. In this way the teachings are absorbed into the different layers of our being, and it often sticks better than simply learning the theory by heart.

 

With this knowledge you will also learn to analyze the individual possibilities, impossibilities and needs of your students, in order to offer personalized adjustments and suggestions, and teaching functionally (focusing on feeling and experiencing the pose), rather than aesthetically (focusing on how the pose ‘should be’ performed).

Personal Guidance And Feedback

We practice what we preach, so expect personal guidance during the training in deepening your practice, your inner journey, and developing your personal teaching style.

 

We encourage you to experiment and reflect. This can provoke different reactions at different levels, because growing is and remains to be challenging (in which everyone is equal). We are here to guide and advise you in this personal process.

 

We also encourage openness during the training days and within the study groups, so a safe environment is cultivated in which you can be completely yourself.

Integrating eastern wisdom and self-healing into your teaching style

The basic principles of Taoism, 5 Element Theory and the Yoga Sutras, help you to understand your constitution and how to restore physical, emotional and mental imbalance with yoga poses, meditation, pranayama, systemic awareness and a certain lifestyle.

 

You will experience what it is like to truly live in connection with yourself and with everything and everyone around you. As you walk this path of spiritual exploration, you will gain tools to pass on your wisdom and make your teachings relevant on a spiritual level too.

Preparation to be in front of the class

Together we learn and study the language of the body, so that you get a feeling of how to best assist people during the yoga class. You’ll  learn to respond to individuals and situations, while not losing sight of the other participants. You will learn verbal and non-verbal instructional techniques, and learn how to smoothly integrate visual demonstrations, touching and personal adjustments into your classes for all levels; beginners, multi-level and experienced.  

To bring your practice and that of your future students on a heart-mind level, you will be introduced to the essential basic concepts and application of both the Yoga Sutras and Taoism/Meridian Theory.

Self-Study & Homework

Let’s face it, we’re going to work hard and play loads in this training and we are asking you to make that commitment. Take into account self-study, homework assignments, yoga practice and regular contact with your study group.

You will immediately start teaching and adjusting poses in your own environment. After all, practicing in reality is where you learn, where you grow, and that’s what makes this training so valuable for you. A deepening of your knowledge, a deepening of – and sometimes confrontation with 😉 – yourself. 

 

Check FAQ for a guesstimate on how many hours will be spent on self-study and homework outside of the contact hours in this training.

E-Learning And Communication

During the training you gain access to an online practice environment. The platform is an extension of the physical training days, so you can absorb the material even better. In your own time and at your own pace.

 

  • All your assignments and personal feedback bundled in one place
  • Access to videos and photos of practices learned in the lessons
  • Possibility to practice and play with the practical and theoretical material
  • Access to the platform for up to six months after the training is fulfilled
  • Additional interaction possibilities with fellow students and the teachers via a Whatsapp group
  • Quick answers to your questions via the Whatsapp group outside of the scheduled training days
Examination & Yoga Alliance Certification

During the training there are two moments of examination (halfway and at the end). At these moments your competence will be evaluated with regard to your own practice, theory and teaching. This concerns written assignments as well as practical exams.

After successfully completing this Yin Yoga Anatomy & Meridians Teacher Training you will have sufficient contact hours for a YA certification and you can register with Yoga Alliance as a RYT 300 teacher (internationally recognized Yoga Teacher Certificate). 

 

Check FAQ to learn more about requirements for obtaining a certificate.

The 300-hour Yin Anatomy & Meridians Teacher Training takes between 14 and 18 months (depending on starting dates) and is held in Budel (NL). 

 

After the first half ‘discover your body’ you will have a few months to practice and integrate and digest what you have learned and experienced in the first half of the training. This creates a good basis and space in your head for the second half of the training ‘get to your core’

1st half – DISCOVER YOUR BODY AND YOURSELF

2nd half – GET INTO YOUR CORE

Energetic – Emotional/Mental – Upper Body Poses

The second half focuses on the energetic, emotional and healing aspects (meridians, chi, organs & emotions) of Yin yoga, and allows you to teach and adjust all 35 Yin asanas in a safe and profound way. In this part the focus is on spiritual development and personal growth. Just as each person’s physical body is unique, so is their energetic make-up.

 

In this part of the training we turn inside to get answers to questions such as:

  • Who am I really?
  • What do I really feel?
  • What effect does a certain practice have on me, in all layers of my Being (emotional, physical, mental)?
  • What do I need at that moment?
  • And which tool (asana, meditation, pranayama, etc.) helps you to get to your core?

 

When we know this about ourselves, we can look specifically at how we can adapt Yin practice to break through destructive thinking patterns and blockages that hinder you.

YOU are an example, the greatest inspiration for others. On the yoga mat, but also outside the mat. Yoga goes beyond the physical practice alone, it is an expression of your heart, mind and soul. Just think of the yoga teachers you have experienced as ‘good’ in recent years, why is that? TRUE, because they touch you, offer recognition and inspire from their uniqueness. From their unique core.

For whom:

The Yin Yoga Anatomy & Meridians Teacher Training 300 hours is open to anyone who would like to deepen their own practice and/or give kick-ass yoga classes in the future.

Because you understand how to move your body in the best way, which is beneficial for you as a unique individual. 

 

In addition, the 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.

  • Is the training relevant if I don't want to become a Yin yoga teacher?

    The Yin Yoga Anatomy & Meridians Teacher Training (300 hours) is suitable for anyone who wants to deepen their knowledge of the anatomical and energetic aspects of yoga, and improve their own practice. 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.

     

    This, in combination with the energetic aspect of yoga practice, makes the training a transformational experience. Whether you subsequently become a kick-ass teacher or yoga coach for others, or remain a loving teacher to yourself, is entirely up to you.

  • How much experience do I need to have with Yin yoga to do this 300 hours training?

    Whether you want to deepen your own practice or would like to become a Yin yoga teacher, experience with the Yin yoga practice is required.

     

    During the training we will practice Yin yoga intensively, it is important that your body is well prepared for this. Moreover, experience with the Yin yoga practice gives you a good foundation to better absorb, integrate and deeply experience the teachings you receive during the training.

     

    Therefore you must have practiced Yin yoga yourself for at least 6 months. If you’ve been practicing Yin yoga for one year or more, you’ll be fine anyway.

     

    By using a minimum level of experience, José can guarantee all her trainees a highly qualified training. Apart from that, José believes that you should always first experience the Yin yoga path yourself, do your inner work, before you can communicate and teach this in your classes.

     

    Are you questioning if your Yin experience is sufficient? Or you don’t have a Yin teacher nearby, so your experience is mainly online? Please contact José and together we will discuss if you have enough experience to start the training. She is happy to help you figure out how to improve your basic level, so that you can still participate.

     

    A good preparation for the Yin Yoga Anatomy & Meridians Teacher Training are José’s online Pre-Yin TT (Dutch), online Yin Anatomy TT 50H (ENG) & online Yin Meridian TT 30H (ENG), live online classes,  online classesmasterclasses, live or online adjustments and anatomy workshops or Yin Yoga & Reiki retreat in Spain.

  • Why is the Yin Yoga Anatomy & Meridian Teacher Training (300 hours) spread over 12 - 15 months?

    Spreading the training over 12 – 15 months is a very conscious choice. Both José & Sanne find it important that trainees have time to practice, study and integrate. Time to play! In this way you learn to reflect, build your self-confidence and will thoroughly ground what you have learned in your system. Moreover, a lot of things can come up in your system during the training. It takes time to digest this, to actually break through old beliefs and patterns.

     

    The power lies in repetition, pulling yourself out of that comfort zone over and over again, so that you can grow on a personal and spiritual level.

     

    Apart from the inner journey, this setup also gives room for gaining practical experience. Many of our trainees already start teaching in small studios, gyms or in private with friends and family during the training. Because of this they make a lot of  practical hours and after obtaining their certificate they can confidently expand their classes.

     

    Physical and Energetic Profundity

    By spreading the training over time  you have space to deepen your own practice and grow personally. During the first half of the training we will mainly focus on the physical aspects (movements, skeleton and muscles) of Yin yoga. The second half will focus on the energetic, emotional and healing aspects (meridians, chi, organs & emotions) of Yin yoga, allowing you to teach and adjust all 35 Yin yoga postures in a safe and profound way.

     

    The inward self-reflection and growth is an important aspect in this training, we will turn inward and face the confrontation with who we are and what we do.

     

    Check the DATES tab to learn more about dates and schedule.

  • What are the prerequisites for obtaining your certificate?

    For the successful completion of the Yin Yoga Anatomy & Meridians Teacher Training (300 hours) the following requirements apply:

     

    • Participation in all classroom training days. You may miss a maximum of 15 hours (2 days) of the 300 hours to qualify for the certificate, if agreed with your teachers.
    • Successful completion of homework, assignments and theory exams. This means approved by the relevant trainer.  
    • Participation and successful completion of the 2 practical exams during the training (halfway through and at the end). The practical exams involve giving a Yin Yoga Anatomy & Meridian lesson and are decisive for obtaining your certificate. The most important criteria for passing: Can you safely give a complete Yin yoga class, in which you carefully guide students through verbal and manual (subtle touches) adjustments, so that the practice is beneficial for their body and emotional state of Being. The judgment of the trainers is decisive in this. 
    • If, due to circumstances, all graduation requirements cannot be met, we will determine which aspects of the training have to be done again in order for you to obtain your certificate.  
    • If the anatomical and philosophical aspects of yoga are not sufficiently applied in the practical class, you can take part in the yearly planned exam day outside the training. You will receive a feedback form from me with points of improvement.

     

    When you have successfully completed this Yin Yoga Anatomy & Meridians Teacher Training, you will receive a (300 hours) certificate certified by Yoga Alliance. You can then register with Yoga Alliance as a RYT 300  teacher (internationally recognised Yoga Teacher Certificate). 

  • How much time do I spend on average on self-study and homework outside the training days?

    Of course this is entirely up to you and varies per person. After all, everyone is unique 🙂

     

    The homework is designed to support the material covered in class and to help you integrate it into your own practice and the way you teach. Practicing with your fellow students is very valuable because you can learn from each other and they are able to give targeted feedback (which is not the case when practicing with non-teachers).

     

    On average you can assume:

    • 1 – 2 hours of Yin yoga and meditation p.w. (self-practise or taking classes externally)
    • +/-  4 hours homework p.w. (reading, watching dvd’s and making assignments)
    • Meet with your practice group once or twice a month
  • Am I sufficiently qualified to teach yoga once I have completed the training?

    Yes!

     

    Many of our trainees start teaching in yoga 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.

     

    But hey, learning and growing never stops. And keep in mind that, once on the path of yoga teacher, that eagerness of deepening only increases. Fortunately, there are infinitely many interesting directions within yoga and infinitely many inspiring yoga teachers, research for yourself what suits you.

     

    Explore and discover your uniqueness!

  • Do I need to have prior training to follow this Yin Yoga Teacher training?
