Yin Yoga Teacher Training In Rishikesh, India

"Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self", Bhagavad Gita

Our Yin Yoga teacher training is an intensive course, and carefully structured. It will give you an understanding of practicing and teaching Yin Yoga. This is a slow paced and gentle style of yoga practice where postures are held in a static way for 2 to 5 mins. In this style, we position our body in a particular pose and then as we let go of effort and surrender into the pose with presence and breath. This enables us to relax the muscles and apply moderate stress to the deepest layers of tissue in the body, tendons, fascia, ligaments etc- thus improving flexibility & vitality. Combine this with mindfulness and internal awareness and Yin becomes a highly meditative tool to cultivate inner silence and explore the realms of our consciousness.

Whatever is fluid, soft, and yielding will overcome whatever is rigid and hard. What is soft is strong”. -- Lao Tzu

In this training course, you’ll study the what’s, why’s and how’s of Yin Yoga.  Our Yin Yoga Foundations Teacher Training Course provides all the tools, resources and knowledge you need to deepen your practice and to start teaching Yin Yoga to others.

The functional approach of the course -based on skeletal variations and uniqueness of each practitioner- provides a renewed perspective of the yoga asanas. If you love the benefits of the Yin Yoga practice in your body and mind, and are ready to take it to next level, this is the perfect start for you!

At the end of the training, you will be able to:

  • Understand what Yin Yoga & know that Yin Yoga is not a new style of yoga.
  • Get familiar with the archetypal poses and their variations.
  • Skillfully practice and modify the Yin Yoga poses.
  • Comprehend where and how you should feel the effects of the poses.
  • Start sequencing Yin Yoga flows centered in the anatomical and physiological benefits of the postures.
  • Discern when/if yoga props are needed.
  • Understand how emotions work and their relation to the connective tissue.

If you want a private room, then you will have to pay $250 for the private accommodation.

Only those students who enroll in the yoga course are given accommodations by Vinyasa Yoga Academy.

The student must show up for all of the Vinyasa Yoga Academy's planned events.


It is common knowledge that food is a vital component and the source of life's energy for the human body. Our physical and emotional health is impacted by the type and quality of the food we eat. When nutrition is discussed from a yogic viewpoint, it encompasses much more than just the food's nutritional value. Since a full-fledged yoga practice necessitates the body's adequate nutritional augmentation, the energetic component of nutrition must also be taken into account while deciding on your diet.

Good news for yogis: Sattvic cuisine is completely vegetarian. As such meals don't include any animal components, and no animals are harmed in their production. Natural farming practices and the absence of any hazardous additives, preservatives, or tastes are required for these goods.

Life changing experience! I have traveled the world over my 58 years on this earth and never experienced this deep, thought provoking guidance. I just wanted to improve my yoga practice. I came knowing NOTHING but I wanted to do correct poses. As I stated, I am 58 years young and only tried yoga a year ago with DVDs and you tube. I recommend this specific school because their is something amazing going on here up in the lush beautiful green hills of Rishikesh, India. Your mind is the only thing holding you back. I found Vinyasa Yoga Academy online while searching for schools. I was drawn to this school and a year later was blessed to come learn not only physical yoga but SO MUCH MORE. I believe, never in the states could I have had this experience for 1/3 the cost AND included room and board and the best weekly outings on our day off.
