Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training (50 hours YA, level 1)
Based on the teachings of Paul Grilley

Enrich, enhance and deepen your knowledge and Yin practice with the Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training Level 1 at Delight Yoga in Amsterdam.

This intensive 50-hour Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training enriches your Yin practice, prepares you to teach basic Yin Yoga classes, increases existing knowledge of anatomy or is a rich addition to previously acquired anatomical knowledge in other workshops and/or Yoga Teacher Trainings.

During this Teacher Training, you will study intensively the basic anatomy and physiology of the human body and you’ll learn how to apply this practical knowledge to the 20 most common Yin Yoga asanas. You will gain insight into your own body and that of others, by analyzing the possibilities and limitations of each joint’s range of movement. Furthermore you will study the muscles of the torso, hips and legs, connective tissues, fundamental bones & joints of the body and the definitions of movements. You will also deepen your awareness of the importance, functions and effects of each Yin Yoga pose. Having this knowledge as a base, you are able to practice, teach and adjust each Yin pose in a personalized, therapeutic and creative manner to meet either your own or your students different physical capabilities. Additionally you’ll practice teaching and sequencing in order to create a healthy and balanced Yin Yoga class for everyone. Lastly you’ll be introduced to Yoga ethics, the basic principles of Taoism and Chinese Medicine (Yin-Yang and Five Element theory) and you’ll increase your self-knowledge with coaching and Dharma teachings.

The Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training level 1 is a good basis for practicing and teaching Yin Yoga classes and is very complementary to all Yoga styles or meditation techniques. The training is suited for students that have done a yoga teacher training before and/ or several yoga workshops and would like to deepen their practice and/or expand their professional skills as a yoga teacher. It is important that you have practiced Yin Yoga at least for six months.  


Yin Yoga is a deep meditative practice consisting of mainly floor poses in which you stimulate, restore and expand the original range of movement of the connective tissues.
