200-Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training Breakdown:

  • 100 Hours of Yoga Techniques
  • 25 Hours of Methodology
  • 20 Hours of Anatomy and Kinesiology
  • 30 Hours of Yogic Philosophy
  • 25 Hours of Practicum

Within this course, you will receive all the necessary materials to teach Yin Yoga, at a Professional Level, as a Certified Yin Yoga Teacher!

You will learn about asanas, adjustments to asanas, modifications to asanas, contraindications, Yogic philosophy, Yoga teacher methodology, helping students with limited range of motion, anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology. You will find out why “gifted” student practitioners, are able to manipulate their bodies due to elongated joint capsules (“double jointed”). It is a mistake to believe that everyone in your Yoga class is the same. This type of thinking can push your students to the threshold of injury.

As you know, teaching Yoga is more than a physical practice. You will also learn about yamas, niyamas, chakras, bandhas, mudras, relaxation techniques, meditation, and Yoga teacher ethics.


You MUST have completed a Level 1 – 300 Hour – “Platinum Course” in order to take this course.

Age Requirement:

You must be at least 18 years of age in order to take this course.


Yin Yoga

Materials Included:

  • The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga: The Philosophy and Practice of Yin Yoga – 2nd Edition (350 pages) is an in-depth look at the practice and benefits of Yin Yoga. All forms of yoga can provide benefits physically, emotionally, and mentally and Yin Yoga is similar. However Yin Yoga works the deeper levels of the body/heart/mind: the connective tissues of the ligaments, fascia, joints and bones and the energetic channels of the meridians, nerves and blood system. One big difference noticed by students of Yin Yoga is the long held, passive nature of the posture, which gives time for a deeper journey to unfold, a journey into the meditative aspects of yoga, a bridge to living life mindfully.

Inside The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga readers will find complete information on how to do the practice, including a deep look inside over 30 Yin Yoga asanas showing the benefit of the pose, how to get into and out of the pose, contraindications and warnings for those who may have trouble with particular aspects of the posture and other important information. Classes, or flows, are also provided that target specific areas of the body such as the hips, the lower back, the legs and the upper body as well as flows that help stimulate particular organs and energy centers. As important as how to practice Yin Yoga, are the benefits: the reader will find lots of information about why anyone would want to practice Yin Yoga. The benefits are explored in three main sections: the physiological benefits, the energetic benefits and the mental/emotional benefits. Within each section the philosophies of the East (India and China) are contrasted with the current science in the West.

The second edition includes―a more functional approach to the practice of yoga, emphasizing the concept of targeted areas; the importance of stress in reducing fragility and building anti-fragility; understanding the nature of creep and the importance of counter poses, with a revised list of effective counter postures; many new photographs of the postures and their variations for different body types; a more current overview of the physiology of tissues and the energy body reflecting new understanding in the science of fascia and cellular signaling; and many other enhancements.

  • Yin Yoga (Book) – An Individualized Approach to Balance, Health and Whole Self Well-Being by Ulrica Norberg, this book is 118 pages and provides photographs and clear descriptions that highlight proper alignment for safe and effective practice. It describes how to adapt yogic principles in modern life and learn how to develop your own individualized yin yoga practice. Complete with yin yoga flows that move slowly and mindfully, gently allowing tendons, fascia, and ligaments to stretch as circulation improves and the mind becomes calm visualization technique.
    *This book is out of print, and no longer available through Aura Wellness Center. It can still be purchased through many sites such as Amazon.com as an e-book.
  • The Yin Yoga Kit (131 page book, 75-minute DVD and 15 cards) In The Yin Yoga Kit, Biff Mithoefer presents poses used in Yin Yoga and explains each posture’s benefits, including which chakras and meridians will be most positively affected. The individual posture cards included illustrate the poses, provide advanced and modified variations, and assist users in designing a personalized practice sequence. The 75-minute CD contains a sample-guided routine narrated by the author, with each pose presented on a separate track so listeners can rearrange them or shorten the routine as needed.
  • Yin Yoga DVD Set The First and Most Essential Yin Yoga DVD!

The materials on these DVDs will provide you with everything you need add Yin Yoga to your life. In addition to carefully planned classes that lead you through the practice, Paul Grilley presents an in-depth lecture on the theory and purpose of Yin Yoga that brilliantly establishes the benefits of this practice for a healthy and balanced life. It is our wish that you find this balance in your own life through these wonderful practices.

This 2-disc set contains over 5 1/2 hours of material, including:

  • 108 minutes of theory lecture
  • 2 fully guided Yin practice sequences of over 60 minutes each
  • 1 fully guided Yin & Yang practice sequence of 60 minutes
  • 3 specially choreographed Yang sequences
  • 8 voice-only guided Yin sequences of adjustable length
  • Customizable playback of the Yin and Yang practices to create new sequences

The Yin and Yang of Yoga: a Taoist Perspective The fundamental insight of the ancient Taoists (Chinese Yogis) is that on one level of awareness there are always opposites called Yin and Yang, but on a higher level of awareness these opposites are united in a single purpose called “Tao.”

When we are ambitious and energetic, the life force flows through our muscles, the Yang layer of the body. This is the essential attitude of Yang, the creative force without which there would never be anything new. When we are peaceful and contented, the life force flows through our skeletal system, the Yin layer of the body. This is the essential attitude of Yin, the quiet insight without which there would never be peace of mind. The Tao of health is to embrace, nourish and cultivate both of these essential layers of the body. Only by doing this do we find true balance.
A Taoist analysis of Yoga practice emphasizes the critical difference between Yin and Yang tissues of the body. Muscles and blood are Yang, connective tissues and joints are Yin. Yin and Yang tissues do not respond to training in the same way and a student’s practice becomes more effective when the difference is understood.

Balancing Yin and Yang Most forms of Yoga practiced today are Yang—they emphasize muscular movement and contraction. By contrast Yin Yoga targets the connective tissue of the hips, pelvis and lower spine. Connective tissue responds best to gentle stress over a long period of time, so Yin postures are held for longer periods. This type of practice complements the more muscular styles of Yoga and is a great aid for learning to sit in meditation.

Many people find that a Yin Yoga practice has transformative effects on body and mind. The gentle but consistent stimulation to the connective tissues encourages long-term health and flexibility of the joints, recharges the energetic system of the body and naturally draws the mind inward into a relaxed, meditative state.

  • Yin Yoga DVD with Kim Eng (146 minutes)Meditative Movements and Postures to Cultivate the Energy of “Allowing”

Most of our lives are directed by the energy of doing—known as yang in the Taoist tradition. To bring life into balance, we need to cultivate its opposite, yin, the energy of “allowing.” Now Kim Eng offers a powerful program of conscious movement to help us balance these forces and accept each moment just as it is. Join her on Presence Through Movement: Yin Yoga to learn postures and practices that take you into this state of presence.

Set in a serene garden, this video begins with gentle instruction on a variety of meditative poses including the Long-Legged Butterfly, Sleeping Swan, and Dragon. By inviting us to hold these postures and sink deeply into the inner body, Kim enables us to discover our “comfortable edge”—a process that can release deeply held traumas and bring about true stillness. Complete with both long and short practices inspired by Kim’s own awakening process as well as a variety of other traditions, this program helps us “be the space”—by allowing, accepting, and opening to whatever arises.

“By learning to move—and hold—our body with intention, we can begin to balance our inner and outer worlds,” teaches Kim. Suitable for both beginners and advanced practitioners, Presence Through Movement: Yin Yoga is a portal to the beauty and serenity of the Now.

    I took this after taking The Original Platinum 300 Hour, WOW! I just completed this after a month and it was an amazing addition to the Hatha training I already had. No repeat material at all! Where else can you get quality yoga training so cheap? I’ve been told that there will be a Level 2 Platinum and I can’t wait to take it. For now…on to the Upgrade Power Course!

    The Yin Yoga course offered by Aura Wellness Center is an excellent
    way to expand your teaching from the usual Hatha yoga classes. The
    books and videos supplied with the course are top-notch. Paul
    Grilley’s video of Yin Yoga classes alone provides all the background
    information, cues, and poses you need to teach a class. Bernie Clark’s
    “Complete Guide to Yin Yoga” (provided with course materials) gives
    you all the theory and historical background of Yin Yoga, and advice
    on putting together sequences, and will likely be a reference that you
    go back to often. The written exam is comprehensive without being
    unnecessarily esoteric or difficult. If you read Clark’s book, you
    will have no trouble with it. It took me about 3 months to read the
    materials, devise a Yin Yoga sequence, and video-record a class.
    Pretty straight-forward. Highly recommended.

    Thank you, Aura Wellness for allowing me to expand my teaching knowledge at a pace that accommodated my needs. I have obtained 2 certifications and currently teach yoga to my small community. Paul is great for answering questions in a timely manner even after you graduate. I highly recommend this teacher training for any practicing yogi looking to deepen their knowledge. You will not be disappointed. I’m grateful to be a part of this tribe!
