What Is Yin Yoga?
Yin Yoga is the practice of creating still, supported postures with active sensation & stretching. Postures are held 2-5 minutes or more, allowing your tissues to acclimate.
This unique, meditative practice developed from Traditional Chinese Medicine theories of well being.
Whether you're a yoga teacher expanding your knowledge base or a student deepening your personal practice (or both!) this teacher training will transform your idea of what a yoga practice can be.

How does the training work?
The Yin Yoga Teacher Training is currently a Utah-based, in-person continuing education course. Upon completing the course requirements, you receive a certificate and are eligible to receive continuing education hours with Yoga Alliance (for registered yoga teachers).
The training is either two 3-day weekends or a full week immersion, typically from 9AM to 6PM. You'll have 3-4 hours homework and final assignments, which include a quiz, class plan, and teaching practicum. Full attendance and completion of assignments is required to certify, but don't worry! I'm here to support your success. For those of you seeking participation only, the quiz and class plan are not required. This is a great option for those who don't plan to teach yin.
All students receive a beautiful, detailed manual to use for assignments and keep for reference. This manual is full color, detailed in content, and includes photos of the poses & variations.
This training includes participation in a tea ceremony that's built on ancient Chinese traditions.
Yin YTT grads cherish this experience. Sitting in circle for tea ceremony helps you embody the spirit of yin yoga in a unique and memorable way.
I just completed Abigail’s Yin YTT and it was more magical and in depth than I could’ve imagine in a span of just two weeks. It was so informative and helpful and I now know exactly what to do as a Yin teacher. I also found a new community of beautiful teachers and now great friends. I would recommend Abigail’s Yin YTT to anyone who’s considering it, really. You’ll get much more out of it than you expect!
