Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training (50 hour YA, level 2)
Based on the teachings of Paul Grilley

Explore, enrich and deepen your knowledge, Yin practice and teachings even more with the Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training Level 2 at Delight Yoga  in Amsterdam.

This intensive 50-hour training is a deepening and expansion of the knowledge gained in the first Yin Yoga & Anatomy Teacher Training.


This Teacher Training focusses more on the energetic experience and effects of a Yin Yoga practice. Again you will study anatomy & physiology but now on a more subtle level. Building on what you have learned in level 1 (analysis of possible joint’s range of movement, muscles, connective tissue and bones), you will now study the muscles of the upper body, the organs, the brain and spinal cord. Again you will learn how to practically apply this new anatomic knowledge to 10 new Yin yoga poses and to the previously analyzed 20 basic poses. In addition to your enhanced anatomic knowledge, you will explore what Chi, Chakras and Meridian pathways, connections & groups are and how they manifest themselves. You will experience these energetic aspects via yin asana practices and meditation, which as an effect makes you more aware of the importance and functions of each Yin Yoga asana.

With this knowledge, you’ll be able to create personalized and therapeutic private and group Yin Yoga classes suited for everyone’s physical and energetic needs. To achieve this you’ll again practice sequencing and teaching. Furthermore you will make a start with studying the Chakra Theory based on teachings from dr. Motoyama and Paul Grilley which will increase your self-knowledge.    

The second Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training is a rich addition to the first level and is again complementary to all Yoga styles or meditation techniques. 
The training is suited for all students who have at least practiced Yin Yoga for one year, have completed the level 1 Anatomy & Yin Yoga Teacher Training and want to deepen their Yin Yoga  practice and teachings. It is also recommended to yogis who want to enhance their knowledge, experience and professional skills after having completed Yin level 1. 

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 and enhances the Chi flow.
