The Complete Yin Yoga Teacher, Level 1

Submerge yourself into a Yin Yoga Training and learn to share the subtle meditative qualities of this practice. Created from a blend of the ethereal sciences of the East and the material sciences of the West Yin Yoga is all about balance. With this training you will be able to teach a Yin Yoga class all by yourself. In addition, you are certified for 100 hours training by Yoga Alliance.

Yinterview with TJ about the Training
The training

This training uses lecture and guided practice to develop a conceptually diverse understanding with extensive first-hand experience.
Yin Yoga brings your awareness through the tissues of your body releasing tension layer by layer. Becoming well versed in Yin Yoga is like being able to apply a deep tissue massage to your body with your mind. Making that experiential connection to all you have heard or read about Chi you can begin to find a new way to experience your body.

This curriculum emphasizes the balance between Eastern (ethereal) and Western (material) sciences. With an in depth exploration of meditation, subtle anatomy and physical anatomy learn to teach the subtle qualities of Yin Yoga. Using lectures and guided practice you will develop your own strategies for teaching and working with students to guide them to listen to their body. The deeper you go with your training and self-exploration the more you can help students learn from their own bodies to create a deep tissue massage with their mind.

Course structure

The training consists of 4 primary formats of imbuing the content. Our focus is on practicing the content via guided Yin sessions and Meditation techniques alongside significant practice of each pose in our Asana Lab. Providing the groundwork for the practice are the lectures which are presented via projector and slide show. Dialogue plays an important role throughout in connecting the content with each student and addressing their questions. Finally the course requires some at home study prior to and during the training to ensure that the individual students are processing the material in their own way. This is accomplished through readings, journaling and an essay. There are no formal tests in the course as we maintain an ongoing evaluation of student comprehension through various means including the Teaching Practicum at the end (don’t worry we keep it super casual and are there to support you in each moment).

Questions about our yoga holidays & retreats

FAQ Yoga Teacher Training

What do I need to bring? Here is a pack list for yoga teacher trainings.

Yoga mat, yoga clothes, swim gear, beach attire and protection, warm socks and jumper for early morning/evening. We have all yoga props like blocks, bolsters, belts, and etc. Bring a notebook and pen to reflect on your experience.

Is there a sandy beach close to the retreat center?

Yes, there are multiple sandy beaches in the area. It’s only one minute to the closest beach called Lakkiess. Only a 20 minute walk away is the beautiful Issos Beach, with a big nature reserve just next to it.

Do I have to share my accommodation? Do you offer private or single rooms?

We offer both shared and private accommodation. Private accommodation guarantees you a private bedroom with a double bed. This can be either a studio-like room with a smoll kitchen and balcony, or an apartment-like accommodation where you have your personal private bedroom and share the big kitchen and balcony with max. one other person.
In our shared accommodation you have a shared twin bedroom with two single beds. You share this room with a person of the same sex and also share a bathroom with a maximum of two people from the same apartment.

Can I come to your yoga school earlier or stay longer?

Yes, you can book extra nights with breakfast included with us please write to us at: andrianacorfu (at) gmail (dot)com We actually recommend taking a bit more time for your journey, because often in yoga retreats many things can happen on different levels, to have time to integrate those changes is a very good idea. Let things first sink before jumping back into daily life. We have many drop-in classes you can join at days where there is no retreat.

Do you have Massages or Spa treatments?

We provide massages from our in-house massage therapist Jenny. She has over a decade of experience and offers a variety of treatments. You can directly request to have a daily massage when you book on the website and even save a little money. How does it sound?

Who is your audience? What kind of people join the trainings?

People who join us have a passion in common: yoga. We share similar life values and an attitude of an open mind and honesty. Therefore, it's really not about age, gender or the fitness level. We have people join us from different parts of the world and most participants are between 20-45 years of age, but we have some beautiful souls over 50 who join us regularly. Everyone who comes in peace is welcome at our yoga base in Corfu.

Can I go on my own to a YTTC?

Yes, absolutely! Many people choose to come on their own. It’s an opportunity to meet like minded people and make new friends. We got life-long friends through yoga trainings and retreats and even Athina and Cedric met on their first yoga teacher training in India. Isn't that a good point?

What is included in the YTTC Course package?

Daily yoga and meditation classes, all lectures, workshops and teaching classes, breakfast (for some trainings also lunch, please check on the detail page) & dinner, accommodation and teaching materials.

How many students are on each training course?

Most Retreats we host have between 8-22 people. The maximum capacity of our house is 29 beds. But we also have some other guests that are not joining a Training and just spending time on their own, diving deep into yoga or just enjoying holidays. An avarage Course has 12 people.

Will there be free wifi / internet and cell phone coverage at the retreat site?

Yes, free wifi is available on the property and in all rooms. There is mobile coverage as well, but the quality of reception may vary depending on your provider since we are in a smaller town. We have a 100mbit line (for the geeks under us).

    What are your Covid policies at the retreat? Should I be vaccinated? Wear a mask?

    We follow government regulations. No mandatory vaccine required. We care about everybody's health and ask participants to be responsible. We don't want to make it into a political topic. Everybody has to have a covid test (rapid or PCR) at arrival not older than 72 hours.
    We follow government regulations and will update the policy accordingly. Covid regulations may change, but as of this time no mandatory vaccine is needed. Everybody is required to present a covid test (rapid or PCR) upon arrival no older than 72 hours. We care about everybody’s health and ask participants to be responsible without politicizing the issue.

    What is the cancellation policy?

    We understand that cancelling is the last thing you want. However, re-arranging things has never been easier. You can still have some time for yourself. If things end up changing at the last minute (under 7 days from the start date), we offer you an 18 month long voucher that you can utilise towards any of our other retreats or services. Additionally, for cancellations that you make longer than a month in advance, you can have a full refund or take the voucher option too. In case of refund, we will charge you the transaction fees, which are estimated at 3%. We hope you understand and that this way we help you invest in yourself.

    What is Yin Yoga?

    Yin is a very slow yoga practice with only seated and lying down postures that heals and regenerates the body and calms the nervous system. It's a passive practice where muscle tension is released and the focus is on relaxation. Yin yoga is a compliment to other more active forms. It is a very slow-paced passive practice focused on releasing tension, stretching, and relaxation with the goal of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility. The postures are mostly in seated or lying down positions (asanas) that are held for a longer period of time than other styles which heals and regenerates the body and calms the nervous system.

    Do you have drop-in classes at INEA•YOGA school Corfu?

    Yes, during the season we have daily drop in yoga classes here in Corfu. Please find the schedule (changing times during season) on the website or write us an email.

    Is the training suitable for beginners in meditation?

    The answer is a clear yes. Our meditations are all guided and everybody can join.

    What is a sound bath?

    A Sound Bath is a very unique experience, especially the first time. As a studied music teacher and pianist, Athina is devote to sound and music. With 7 crystal bowls tuned to the frequencies of the 7 chakras, Athina plays a sound concert of a very special kind, flooding the whole body with vibrations. By stroking and painting those bowls, they start to vibrate and create a smoothing sound in their frequencies tuned in 440 hz. Many testify of wonderful experiences during these sessions. It is said that the vibrations release energetic (emotional) blockages and have a healing and harmonizing effect on the body and mind. It is each time a marvelous experience, but come and witness it for yourself.

    What is a tibetan singing bowl sound healing treatment?

    Sound treatments are here to help you release tension, work through blockages and connect with yourself in a deeper level. During these sound treatments the practitioner utilises the healing aspects of ancient Tibetan techniques and brings them to your body through vibrating singing bowls in the form of waves. The waves, as created by Tibetan and Crystal singing bowls, are played with clear intensions and directly from the heart. Sound is such a powerful media, as tradition has shown and modern research has come to support, especially when practitioner and patient/client are working towards the same goal or releasing, connecting, clearing, having left concepts and words outside the treatment room and allowing the vibrations to flow.
