A teacher training is really about wanting to embark on a journey that brings benefits of the practice to others. In this process, one has to acquire the knowledge and gain direct experience on the practice. Undertake a journey of self-transformation with Victor Chng, Asia’s leading Yin Yoga Teacher, to radically change your ideas of what yoga, discover how to get more out of your current practice, and learn how to teach effectively to your students.
The training is divided into two courses. They are both our entry level courses for students to gain an in-depth understanding on what Yin Yoga entails. Course 1 & 2 help students to design and teach basic yin yoga and meridian sequences after the training. It will be a practice focus training with hands-on experience on adjustments and refinements. Students are also required to do research, readings and written homework during the courses.
