Yin Yoga Training
YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING
Join experienced yoga teacher, Amanda Madhu Whiting, on a journey through yin yoga.
Yin yoga is a practice of depth, intensity, nourishment, and intuition. While exploring the body’s connective tissues, energetic pathways, and organ functions, a profound meditative portal opens, providing space and new ways of being in the physical experience.
Dates & Locations:
Fall 2023: September 22-24, October 27-29, Prana Yoga Studio, 50 hour training
Program Fees Include: program tuition, program manual, and certificate upon graduation. Please note there is a final assignment requirement prior to certification.
Course Material And Recommended Readings: We provide the course materials for you in the form of a manual. See below for recommended readings prior to attending the course.
Even if you don’t care to teach Yin I think every teacher should take this training. The information extends to all yoga practices and radically transformed how I view yoga, anatomy and teaching going forward.Sydney
I am so thankful for the Yin training offered at Prana Yoga studio. I was drawn to the training not because I loved yin yoga, but to explore why I didn’t. Throughout the training, my understanding of the benefits and opportunities to connect with my body and mind in this way, ignited an appreciation for yin. Thankfully, I am now more comfortable exploring and enjoying yin yoga in my own practice.Teneil Q
I would HIGHLY recommend this training to anyone who wanted a beautifully paced and well thought out way of learning about the Yin yoga practices, theories and how they can assist us with everyday living. This training was so well laid out and so accessible – everyone would benefit from Amanda’s training program.Anonymous
I absolutely loved every minute of this immersive weekend. It was like a sweet, cozy getaway to be around like-minded people and share the beautiful space at Prana to learn from each other and the wonderful teachers. Soaking up their knowledge is such a gift and you can feel the passion behind everything they say and in the way that they teach. I left this course with an incredible understanding of Yin and believe that anyone who is contemplating teaching Yin could benefit greatly from the newfound understanding you’ll gain in this course. I thought I knew a thing or two about Yin but I see now that I was only scratching the surface. Even if you don’t intend to teach it, you’ll have a new awareness of your mind/body when attending a yin class and that to me has been the ultimate gift!Heather B
Amanda’s deep knowledge of yoga, and specifically yin yoga is amazing. It is truly amazing to witness her passion. I learned a lot about the poses, mores though it deepened my appreciation for Yin Yoga.Raechelle
This was my first experience of yin style yoga and I absolutely loved it! Yin has a beautiful capacity to drop us into the intensity of our bodies while keeping them in a place of stillness and release. I was very impressed with the presence, intelligence and passion of the teachers! Thank you very much. I really look forward to continuing on this path of exploration.Laura
I was fortunate to participate in Amanda Whiting’s 40 hour Yin Yoga teacher training program recently. The amount of knowledge I gained in the style of Yin yoga, from the physical practice, to theory, to breath and energy lines was invaluable. I realize how much I didn’t know about the practice of Yin and also how Yin is the loveliest (in my opinion) of practices ever. I think this was made true because of Amanda – she is so nurturing and is capable of holding space for others in such a loving and honest way. I’m not sure if my experience would have been the same in another training program. Amanda’s love of Yin and all yoga as well as all people is so evident in her training style. I am so excited to share my learning’s with the yogi’s at the studio that I teach at. Plus I was able, for the very first time, to do my own home Yin practice. I have never even attempted that before. Thank you Amanda for re-igniting my love of yoga and humanity!Denise
Yin Level 1
In level 1 you will be introduced to the concepts of yin yoga including benefits, resolutions, precautions and potential outcomes. We will explore meridian theory from a yin perspective and anatomy and physiology as it pertains to yin postures. You will learn how the physical and energetic bodies work together in yin poses and how this impacts the mind. You will gain and understanding of yin poses including cueing, modifications and precautions. As well, you will be introduced to mindfulness and meditation.
Deepening your understanding of yin practice I believe is essential to being able to teach these practices with knowledge, integrity, and authenticity. I’m so glad I’ve taken this training with these beautiful souls!Lisa
Thank you so much for showing what Yin Yoga could be. I came into this training thinking Yin was about physical manipulation of the fascia tissues. Yes it is that! But, since this training I have come to realize it is so much more. The depth of exploration of the body and energy is endless.Arlene
Yin Level 2
In level 2 we will dive deeper into the specifics of meridian theory and how the energetic and physical anatomy of the body relate. You will garner a deeper understanding of yin yoga and its immediate and long term benefits. We’ll explore the molecular components of emotion and how this relates to mindfulness and meditation.
Mantra and pranayama will be explored as to the role they play in a yin practice, and how they can be used to deepen the yin experience. You will learn how yin is related to the yogic philosophy and lifestyle, and how to balance your constitution through yin practice.
I feel much more comfortable being able to lead a class with the knowledge gained from Level 2. There is so much more about yin than what you get from participating in a class and Level 2 really reveals a lot of layers that make me so excited to be able to plant seeds of knowledge.Anonymous
Taking level 2 is vital for the practitioner. Level 1 is a wonderful to begin offering a yin class while level 2 is necessary for a practitioner to truly understand the delicacy of this inward practice.M.

Amanda’s brilliant mind and quick wit make it an incredibly fun and interesting learning environment. She genuinely takes interest in each of her students and it’s been an amazing journey with her.Robin C.
This was my first teacher training with Amanda and won’t be my last. The pace and structure made the information easily retained and allowed for a very integrative experience. I left the training feeling confident & enthusiastic in what I am sharing with my students; in cueing safely, educating and providing an overall experience. Looking forward to Yin 2.kirsten
