The slow meditative practice of Yin Yoga has been increasing in popularity over the past few years, perhaps as a natural urge for rebalance after the previous rise of the "Yang" styles of Yoga such as Ashtanga and Hot Yoga. Stress, mental health issues and general feelings of overwhelm are becoming almost "the norm" and what Yin Yoga provides is an opportunity to slow down, to be still for a while and create some space to reset.
As well as the benefits of mindfulness, Yin Yoga also helps to keep our joints healthy and mobile, releases built up tension in the deep connective tissues of the body and provides gentle acupressure to the energy channels in the body, keeping our energetic system healthy too.
If you would like to teach Yin Yoga you will need to have a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training certificate.
You are welcome to join this course as a Yin retreat, simply to learn more about this quiet and gentle practice. Afterwards you will receive a certificate of attendance, if within 2 years after the course you do take a 200 hour YTT then we can swap the certificate for you for a CPD.

HOW IS THE COURSE MATERIAL DELIVERED?
Louise teaches the course in an experiential way so you can expect to be practicing a lot of Yin Yoga! She recommends treating the course as a retreat, even if you do not decide to stay onsite and to clear time in the evenings to allow the practice to sink in and really experience how it feels to go in the Yin energy. As life is often busy it can take a while to settle down and sometimes when we have time to just be with ourselves tiredness or emotions arise so it's helpful to allow yourself space just to rest or do whatever you feel you need around the class session times.
YOUR TEACHER-LOUISE WINDSOR
Louise is an advanced Yin Yoga teacher having studied with her teacher Norman Blair, Sarah Powers, Bernie Clarke and Paul Grilley.
Louise began her yoga journey over 12 years ago; she discovered that yoga philosophy and the practice fitted so perfectly with her interest in helping others with self-enquiry, personal development, healing and so much more. Louise fell in love with Yin Yoga after studying Vipassana, a mindful Buddhist meditation technique, and realised this very slow style of yoga blends the physical practice of yoga perfectly with meditation and self-enquiry. Naturally a busy “yang like” person, and up until then preferring the stronger practice of flow yoga, she learnt that actually she needed the balance of the two. Time to slow down, stop, and just be.
Through her teachings of Yin she shares not only yoga philosophy but also knowledge of the meridians, mindfulness, chakras and self enquiry. She is passionate about helping people to be themselves, to accept themselves as they are, and to cultivate a deep connection with their true state of being; peace, love, non duality, joy and inner wisdom. In training other teachers, she feels it’s important for them to find their own voice and their own style of teaching so it flows and feels authentic for them.
Louise is a Yoga Alliance (UK) Chartered Level 2 teacher and a Yoga Alliance US ERYT 200 YACEP.
