If you are looking for a flexible course, that you can fit in around every day life and includes lots of classes to observe and take part in then this is the yin training for you!

Time commitment

Due to the online, largely self-paced, nature of the course there is more flexibility to fit the course around every day life and work. You can join the course anytime and it takes between 2 to 4 months to work through the course and complete assignments, dedicating roughly 3/4 hours a week, however some students take longer or shorter time depending on their other time commitments and previous teaching experience. If you can't make classes live on a Tuesday evening, weekly recordings are available. You are encouraged to complete the course within 6 months.

Assessment and teaching practice

Assessment is through the completion of 1 essay (option of 3 titles) and practical teaching assessment. For yoga teachers looking for supportive, constructive feedback on their teaching of yin yoga, you are invited to submit a recording of you teaching part of a yin yoga class. Amy will watch this and send you feedback. Allowing someone to observe you teach and give feedback can seem daunting, but can be hugely beneficial to improving the quality of your teaching.

Testimonial from Hélène Rouget

"I have been practicing yoga for 5 years and I now teach yoga alongside teaching on various Sports courses for adults. My main practice uses the Ashtanga and Vinyasa forms of yoga. I enjoy exercise very much and would regularly attend the gym, swim or run. I have discovered YIn Yoga through Amy's classes and I really enjoy it. Firstly it is a fantastic counterbalance to my regular type of exercises, which are cardio and strength & conditioning. It is also deeply relaxing and I feel the benefits of less pain after workouts. Finally it fits in right with my teaching in Sports Anatomy and Physiology and enhances my knowledge of the fascia. Amy's explanations are very clear and the format of the class is relaxed but it places the students at the heart of the class. The videos that form part of the Teacher training course are excellent, and very detailed. Amy's passion for Yin Yoga is evident...and contagious! I warmly recommend Amy's classes whether you wish to enroll in weekly classes or become a Yin Yoga teacher."
