Learn the secrets to become an AMAZING
Yin Yoga teacher

In your own time, at your own pace.

people, cover, cry

Many Yin yoga teachers do not have a strong understanding of the human body or the fundamentals of Yin yoga.  They struggle with identifying the key differences between tension and compression, stressing and stretching, pain and discomfort.  This can lead to causing physical harm or causing additional injury to a person.

Here we share the knowledge and key secrets that set you up for success as a Yin yoga teacher.  These are the tools we used to teach Olympic champion athletes, leading fitness professionals, people working with injuries or disabilities, senior citizens, pregnant ladies, in yoga studios, fitness centers, workplaces and clinics!  In just 50 hours, you will be able to develop your own practice, learn what works for YOU and YOUR body, share your passion and be helping others! 

Maybe you feel like an online training isn’t for you and you feel that you would learn more in person?  We understand.  We have created such personal, in-depth video presentations and lectures, full length classes and reading material, along with a friendly and interactive support group of Yin Yoga teachers.  Imagine being able to learn without interruption or disturbances, in your own time, at your own speed and when it suits your life. 

We wanted to make this a comprehensive, self-paced training for you so the quality and quantity of content in this training far exceeds an in-person training!

This training is actually much better than any in-person and onsite training, as you can take your own time to study.  The content and yoga practice far exceed its value!   This course makes me more fond of Yin Yoga and now I want to learn more.
I feel lucky I found this online Yin Yoga teacher training, I LOVED it!

Words from a few of our graduates...

I received my yoga teacher training in Bali from Loka Yoga School back in 2019. It was such an amazing experience all around that it was a no brainer when looking into schools to get my continued education, that I would go with Loka Yoga School. Yann and Taryn are two of the most beautiful souls that I have ever met. They truly put their heart and soul into everything for their students. I will forever recommend Loka Yoga School to anyone interested in taking the leap to become a yoga teacher!

Absolutely loved this Yin Yoga teaching course!  So in-depth and so interesting. I learnt a lot, even though I had a basic knowledge already.  The body is amazing and everything was described, along with diagrams, so I could take lots of notes to refer too. The classes were awesome too, so good to get some practice in and really helped relax you after all the studying, haha! Was so easy to do online with all lessons in manageable chunks so you could do some and easily come back later.  Fast feedback and great help and support via email/messenger and of course the Facebook group. The set classes, described in great detail at the end, will be invaluable as I prepare to start teaching my own classes and a brilliant reference to look back on. Thank you so much! Namaste xx

This online training has exceeded my expectations. The content is more than enough to get you started in the yin world, providing relevant information about anatomy and history, first theoretically and towards the second half of the training, practically. A fantastic resource for new yin yoga teachers and a refreshing training for yoga teachers in general. The break-up of every pose, including anatomical cues, the meridians involved, variations for the pose… makes it a great tool for sequencing! The availability of yin classes with different themes and targeted areas is another bonus, allowing me to practice at home anytime! I definitely recommend anyone in the health industry to take this training and add such an important skill to their list of tools to help improve people’s overall wellbeing!

Yin Yoga poses book cover

I loved this course! It was so incredibly detailed, I feel very confident now leaving with so much knowledge.
I enjoyed how the program was laid out in ‘bite-size chunks’, so each module never got boring.  I looked forward to the yin classes at the end of each module! The anatomy lectures were EXTREMELY detailed and clear; Yann is very clear and explains everything so well.  I loved how detailed & thorough Taryn was with all the poses, offering a photo in many different views and all the detailed cueing and pose explanations helped so much.  A lot of the poses I was already familiar with but Taryn managed to show me a new way to try the pose and increase or change the sensation.

The training was so much fun to complete and it really shows how much thought and effort have been put into it.  Before I started the course I was a bit skeptical about completing a yoga teacher training online and I wondered how this could work, but I found the online training tool very easy and intuitive to use and the content was very diversified and of such high quality!  I especially loved the online yoga classes with the explanation of all the different yin poses and variations. At the end of the course you receive a tutorial with thorough explanations of the different postures. This is so helpful and gives great guidance for creating my own yin yoga classes!  This truly is a great learning opportunity for everyone who would like to learn more about yin yoga!

I have thoroughly enjoyed this course.  I spent some time looking into yin courses and I’m very pleased that I came across this one it was a very good find.  Taryn and Yann are very experienced and knowledgeable and pass on such a passion for Yin and all the anatomy information you need to know to be a confident yin teacher.  I love that this course is entirely self paced.  As a busy mum to 2 this enabled me to work around family time and other commitments which for me was a massive bonus to this course.  I would highly recommend it to anyone.

More words from our graduates...​

I am so happy to have completed this course; it is definitely worth it! Each module contains the care and details you need to become a better Yin teacher.  I have discovered many new things and relearnt others.
The anatomy component was outstanding! Great job Yann! The practical component with all the poses and sequences was delightful!! Taryn, you are making the life of new teachers so simple.
I am pleased that i have enrolled in this extra 50hrs around Yin and I will strongly encourage all teachers that do not have much experience in Yin & Restorative to do the same.
I was asked to rate it between 1-5… I would give it a 6 if it was possible!
Thank you so much!!

The course is well designed and sets you up for a great teaching foundation!

Student Testimonials

I loved the Yin Yoga Training with Taryn and Yann! It was a perfect balance between theory and practical. The integration of the online platform is very intuitive and easy to navigate. You can see from the wealth of information presented though-out the training, the Facebook support page and the personal check ins that both Taryn and Yann have put a lot of time and thought into  the construction of this training to suit an online environment. Perfect given the restrictions on travel at the moment, this training removes the barrier of feeling unable to access great training in COVID times. Hopefully one day, I will be able to attend an in person training! Thank you!!

Fantastic training course, clear and informative.  Amazing study of anatomy and the practical side of things are so helpful; Taryn and Yann have an amazing way of explaining things and holding your interest. Taryn goes deeep into so many asanas.   I learnt so much from this course and has changed my style of teaching forever. Totally recommend this course.

I decided to invest the lockdown for COVID19 in my yoga education, giving myself the chance to take advantage of the situation and turning it into my favor.  That’s how I happened to found this course of yin yoga training online!  I went through it quite intensively and I found it really useful that you could do it at your own pace and without having any issues with the time difference. The content is really well created and arranged. Everything is clear and if you are having any issue, the response is really prompt – making sure you’re having the best experience!  You leave the course with a huge amount of information and knowledge, which really makes it worth the time and the investment.  You can tell these guys are working hard to give the best educational product they can.  Thank you Yann & Taryn for sharing this with me!
– Federica C (Italy)

5/5

A friend shared a link to this course during lockdown when I wasn’t teaching so I decided this was the perfect time to continue with my yoga training for myself and students when we come out of lockdown.  I love the fact you can progress at your own pace, I enjoyed it so much I was always ready to do the next session rather than taking a break. The explanation of every posture, along with modifications, meridians and benefits means it is extremely informative and helpful. The yin classes online are there to refer to as well as use at home whenever you need to.  The course is well set out and clear, there is email support if you have a query and replies are very prompt. There is also a closed Facebook group too for peer support if needed.
I will definitely be bringing more Yin into my own classes, thank you Taryn and Yann for all your hard work, dedication and enthusiasm.
– Leigh J (UK)

5/5
Thank you for this amazing course! This is my 2nd training with Loka Yoga. The fist being in Bali. They have bought the same exceptionally high standard of teaching onto the online platform.
The course is extremely thorough and I will state again,  of an extremely high standard I have come to expect from Loka Yoga. Yann’s anatomy lectures are detailed,  well explained + linked in so well to both the science and the practice. Taryn’ classes were not only beautiful  ( as always) but also a great learning experience. This may be an online course but I felt totally supported during this training – any questions , problems, suggestions etc were always dealt with promptly and efficiently. I look forward to more trainings with Loka Yoga.
– Heather B (Wales)

This is no doubt, one of the most beautiful courses I have ever done!  I now feel very confident in teaching Yin yoga, thanks to the thorough preparation of the teachers of this course and the many things I learned through it.  Each section of this course is clearly explained and divided into sub-sections.   It is a very balanced course, the teachers are of high standard of preparation and their passion shines through the videos.
I am really happy to have had the opportunity to take this beautiful course. 
Thank you!

I was a little concerned that I would not gain a thorough understanding through online training, however both Taryn and Yann present a great energy that makes the learning experience enjoyable and clear, great content in terms of the anatomy, theory of Yin and fantastic classes and descriptions of a great range of poses, plus the sequence suggestions and additional classes have given me a great understanding to base my own future classes on.  I would highly recommend the training to any teacher wishing to add to their education and teaching practice and am grateful for the experience.

This training has given me a true insight and a comprehensive understanding of the world of Yin. Whilst I know its only the start of my studying of this style of Yoga, I feel equipped with the knowledge on how to explore my practice as a yogi but also as a yoga teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed this training, and would urge anyone who is thinking to dabble in Yin Yoga or wants to deepen their understanding to attend this training. Thank you so much, I’m feeling refreshed and excited to offer this as part of my schedule.

5/5
Thank you Yann and Taryn – you are a true power couple!  I absolutely loved this training and would recommend it to anyone who wants to teach Yin yoga from a place of understanding and anyone who wants to understand anatomy from the perspective of Yoga AND enjoy amazing Yin Classes!  I would almost recommend this course to anyone who would like to have a refresher on anatomy AND enjoy amazing yoga classes.  Yann’s teaching of anatomy and Yin Yoga Theory compliments Taryn’s clearly instructed Yin Classes and vice versa. They are both incredibly knowledgeable and approachable even though this is an online course. I had so many a-ha moments over the course of each lesson and feel like I will not just be a better Yin Yoga teacher for it but a Yoga teacher in general. From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU!  P.S. Please make more online courses 🙂

5/5

Taryn and Yann are both exceptional teachers, with great energy, and knowledge.
I love anatomy and physiology, so, naturally, the anatomy lessons were quite enjoyable, and went into detail that I have not gone in to since I completed my Diploma of Fitness quite some years ago; it was a wonderful refresher, and I am certain my anatomy knowledge is far greater now, than it was prior to this training.  Yann, your anatomy knowledge is awesome, I am in awe, and realise I need to delve deeper into my anatomy knowledge (which, being a rehab based personal trainer for the last 15 years, I thought was quite knowledgeable enough, but your presentations remind me that we never stop learning!).
The course content is very easy to follow and understand, the platform is lovely to use, and all information provided is set out in way that makes learning a joy.
Taryn was wonderful in ensuring all questions were answered before I enrolled, and she ensured that she was available to answer any questions I encountered during the course.
I thoroughly enjoyed the course, especially the Yin Yoga classes with Taryn.
I highly recommend Loka Yoga to anyone looking for an online teacher training option.
