Finding Stillness : Yin Yoga & Mindfulness Training

With Marije Paternotte

This workshop has taken place already, please visit our Workshop Page for a more recent offering of workshops and trainings.

A 35-hour Yin Yoga and Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training.


This training is for yoga teachers who wish to offer the yin yoga practice as a doorway into Mindfulness Meditation and Buddhist practices. The training will be offered in the form of a retreat. This experience will lead to a deeper understanding of the practice, allowing you to teach from a foundation that is solidly rooted within. 

Basic Zen mind training will promote the development of self-inquiry, and cultivate a sense of well-being that is grounded in warmhearted awareness. Conscious communication practices will foster enhanced skills to genuinely connect with others, which are directly applicable in your teaching as well as in your daily life.


During this training you will:

  • explore movement (Yang), stillness (Yin), and breath practices to elicit a wholesome expression of Chi in the body, fostering vitality and overall well-being;
  • practice Yin yoga sequences that target the upper body to enhance breathing capacity, shoulder mobility, and that manage specific mind states;
  • develop self-observation without judgment through writing, conscious communication, and meditation practices, leading to greater self-awareness and personal growth;
  • learn the four foundations of Mindfulness, and how to teach them in a Yin Yoga class;
  • investigate the Four Mind Changings and cultivate compassion and resilience through mind training, thus enhancing connection with yourself and others, as a path of growth and genuine happiness.


After this training you will: 

  • be confident to teach basic mindfulness techniques in the framework of a (Yin) yoga class;
  • know specific Yin Yoga sequences to target the upper body;
  • have an ability to connect with others with a more genuine interest and compassion;
  • have a greater awareness of who you are, allowing you to take more authentic leadership.
