35hrYin Yoga Teacher Training

Yin yoga is a deep, meditative, and reflective practice that links an asana practice to ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles. While “yang” yoga focuses on your muscles, yin yoga targets the deep connective tissues, like fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. This practice gives you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body.

“It was a great learning environment overall. Sharyn held space for everyone very well and I felt secure and comfortable sharing and asking questions. The review of each asana was incredibly helpful along with modifications. Sharyn is a great teacher."
