At Yellow Rock Yoga we have developed our own style of teaching Yin Yoga. We would love to share our Yin Yoga teaching method with you, live and in person on the beautiful island of Gozo, in the Mediterranean sea. This is a Yoga Alliance YACEP 50-hour training, which is open to yoga teachers in Continuing Education (50 CEU).
What is so special about our Yin Yoga teaching method?
We take our Yin Yoga practice to a level deeper by including different pranayamas in our sequences, as well as meditation techniques and visualizations. Learn how to guide students to fully go through all the kosha layers and have full energetic benefits from your Yin Practice. If you are not a teacher but an advanced practitioner, learn how to create your own tailor-made personal sequences to complement your daily life. It is all about optimizing your energy!

What is so special about Gozo?
Gozo is a tiny island in the meditarranean Sea, with 300 days of sun per year and a very rich history. Some say Gozo was part of Atlantis, some say it is the island of Calypso. What we know for sure is that nature is amazing here and that we have a lot of ancient temples, caves and other places with a very strong energy. The perfect place for a Yin Yoga Teacher training or Advanced Practitoner Course. We will practice our yin on beaches, cliffs and on remote spots on the island.
Where to stay?
You will stay at the lovely Quaint Boutique Hotels in Sannat or Xewkija. This means staying in an authentic Gozitan village and having a comfortable room to return to after you training during the day. Check the information about Quaint Boutique Hotels on our Yoga, hiking and meditation retreats page.
Who will be teaching?
You will be guided by Monique van Bemmelen, Lead Trainer, Yin Yoga teacher, 500 E-RYT and YACEP. Next to that you will practice with Norbert Koch, Lead Trainer, Yin Yoga Teacher, RYT-500 and YACEP.
Upon completion of the assignments and passing a test, you will receive a Yin Yoga Teacher Certificate by Yellow Rock Yoga. This will give you 50 CEU to use as continuing education points with Yoga Alliance International.
