Learn more about our Teacher Training programs from personal experiences of our students.
Yael's training was such a wonderful and fruitful experience for me. Yael created a safe space for learning, exploration, and growth for all teacher trainees. I expected to learn about the yin methodology, but left with such a grander scope of knowledge. We tackled anatomy, the energetic body, the Chinese Meridians, sequencing, and the elements, and were coached on how to teach these topics in a trauma-sensitive way.
I've been able to put this training to use, teaching weekly Yin classes at a few different settings since graduation. Yael made herself accessible all throughout training, and has been a resource for us all post-graduation, too.
I highly recommend this training to anybody with a deep love of yoga and learning. Yael is an incredible wealth of knowledge, and I am so happy to say I am confident teaching Yin. The world needs more stillness!
Yael's Yin Yoga Teacher Training changed my yoga trajectory forever in many ways. First, she encouraged me to actually teach - I never intended to teach, just deepen my own practice. Her encouragement and support shifted my perspective. She opened my eyes to look beyond alignment. My focus was heavily focused on everyone forming the same exact shape, and her training showed the variances between our individual anatomies.
