This illuminating online course will engage & gently disrupt everything you think you know about Yoga. Together, we’ll slow down, look deeply at the present moment, and experience how introspection & contemplation transform our practice & lives. 


This Yoga Alliance certified training covers the basics of classical Yin Yoga: functional Anatomy, joints & target areas, meridian theory & mindfulness. 


Yet we dare to go much deeper: Together we’ll explore an authentic spiritual practice known as Self Inquiry. We use this genuine approach to discover the existential depths of our practice & purpose. 


"They show you how to slow down, how to open up, and how to love yourself.

Anna Kotaba – Poland

And you know that you’re ready for this.


Explore your body & mind at a depth you’ve only imagined. Join Akasha’s 80-Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training and take your journey to the next level.

"The lessons were very genuine they came from a real heartfelt place. I was absolutely delighted to meet all the teachers during the classes, if we had any questions the support was amazing."

Luis  New Zealand


Other schools focus exclusively on the physical benefits of this practice. While there are merits to such an approach, you’ll discover far more depth in Akasha’s Yin Yoga Program:  

Our exclusive Teacher Training has a much broader and truly holistic approach. The genuinely practical philosophy and the authentic practice will allow you to actually integrate Yin into every area of your life. 

Lead teacher Kirsten describes Yin Yoga as a “secret door” through which we can explore & expand all aspects of our being. We start by creating spaciousness in the physical body and from there, we go all the way, into the very essence of Existence. 

Akasha’s Yin Yoga Teacher Training guides you through the threshold of this secret door. In this life-changing process, you’ll gain all the skills & wisdom needed to support yourself (and future students.) 


“I love Akasha Yoga Academy. Their programs are extremely comprehensive & truly get to the essence of Yoga.”

Dive Deep into the Flow of Yin

AYA300-Dean Raphael-W-102.jpg

Balancing & uniting the dualities of Yin & Yang is what Yoga is all about. Yet in reality, our lives tend to be imbalanced: 


We live in a world dominated by strong Yang energy, nature’s active outward force. In this course, we’ll dive deeply into the opposite energy: the soft & slow flow of Yin.

Our heart-opening program explores Yoga from the inside out. We’ll look at the profound spiritual principles of Yin Yoga. And we’ll understand how this peaceful practice differs from more engaging styles of Yoga. 

Learn the Principles of Yin Yoga Practice 

You’ll learn to practice & teach Yin Yoga from a space of deep interoception & inner alignment. 

To support your own internal perception, we’ll also study the physical mechanics of a safe Yin practice: 

  • In our exploration of functional anatomy, we’ll discover relevant joints & target areas. 

  • To cater to the full spectrum of abilities, our individualized style incorporates a variety of modifications for each pose. 

  • And perhaps most importantly, we’ll explore how to use the breath to enhance the quality & safety of our practice.

Applied Self Inquiry

AYA Munduk-Dean Raphael-87.jpg

Self-Inquiry and the ability to hold space for ourselves & others are two fundamental teachings of our Yin Yoga Program.

This online training generously explores a variety of awareness practices. And we’ll show you how to apply them in your Yoga practice, and in daily life. 

We’ll have the opportunity to dive into the deep roots of awareness:  In our practical approach to Self Inquiry, we’ll explore how Yin Yoga serves as a powerful container for this eye-opening spiritual practice.

Functional Anatomy & Energetic Meridians

The anatomy teachings of this course draw from an applied, functional approach. Our individualized perspective respects the highly unique makeup of each body, and it shows how that translates into customized postures. 

Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is the energetic foundation of Yin Yoga. Energy channels, known as meridians, exist in left & right pairs. They allow for the distributing flow of Qi throughout the entire body. Guided by our Yin Yoga practice, we’ll explore the deeper structures of the body. We’ll directly experience how the physical anatomy connects to the energetic body and the Five Elements.

Build a Personal & Professional Yin Yoga Practice

Once you’ve experienced the magnificence of a grounded & mindful connection to your body, you’ll be ready to share your personal insights with others in a professional Yoga context.

Akasha’s course fully prepares you to teach Yin Yoga in a holistic way, giving it a physical, energetic, or spiritual orientation. You’ll learn how to authentically hold space, and guide others in their Yogic journey.

Every Yoga journey matures through three main stages: 

Curiosity, experimentation & integration. 

Not sure where you’re at? 

It’s natural to feel stuck and unsure about what’s next. Creating the space & time for the heart-led commitment of a Yoga Teacher Training isn’t easy. You might worry about the challenges this phase in your journey may present.

You’ve already come a long way. We know. We’ve been there too.

In an authentic Yoga journey, there’s a natural flow between curiosity, experimentation, and integration. As you devote yourself more deeply to your practice, you’ll evolve to greater heights.

Trust this: Your guide is already within you, gently encouraging you to take a step forward, release the past, and discover the magnificence of awareness, in full, loving presence.

And we’re here to support that journey every step of the way. Our program gives you convenient online access to all training modules & materials, so you can choose a pace that works for you. Plus, you’ll meet the lead teachers and connect to our vibrant global community in regular live Zoom calls. 


The ancient science of Yoga is a vast & beautiful subject, and Self Inquiry opens us to a new way of seeing ourselves in relation to the world. It is our privilege to share this knowledge and experience this transformative journey with you.

You'll leave this course confident & inspired to teach a unique Yin Yoga class. We’ll empower you to guide students through the profound practice of Self Inquiry, both on and off the mat. 

Self Inquiry is the basis of our Yin Yoga Program, and what makes it distinct from the offerings of other Yoga schools. Like opening a secret door to Self, the practice of Self Inquiry invites us to explore our inner landscape. Simultaneously we expand our capacity to rest back as awareness.

You’ll experience the power of holding space for another person through a connected & mindful Yin Yoga practice. Together, we’ll dive into functional anatomy, the myofascial lines & nervous system. We’ll explore the underlying energetic foundation of Yin Yoga through the world of meridians.

Principles of Yin Yoga Practice

Yin Yoga is a slow practice that works with a small variety of long-held floor poses. The gentle approach brings health & mobility to the deeper structures of the body: connective tissue, fascia, joints & bones. 

These areas don't get addressed properly in a regular fast Yoga practice. Yin Yoga has the potential to free up a whole new range of motion in your body. 

This truly comprehensive course presents all essential Yin poses. You’ll gain an in-depth understanding of relevant principles, modifications, and target areas of all postures. You'll discover the underlying anatomy and experience the benefits of each pose in your own body.

AYA300-Dean Raphael-W-101.jpg
AYA Munduk-Dean Raphael-87.jpg

Myofascial Lines & Meridians 

We’ll present a functional approach to Yin Yoga anatomy. And we'll introduce you to the wisdom of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Through a practical investigation, we’ll trace these connective lines in all essential postures. 

The meridians of TCM are the energetic foundation of Yin Yoga. We’ll introduce the intricate connections between those energetic meridians and the physical myofascial lines. 

Together, we’ll discover how these deep relations between energetic & physical planes profoundly influence our practice. 

Awareness Practices & Holding Space

Self Inquiry is a practical way to hold hands with your own Stillness and to deeply nourish the Soul. Through inspirational talks, guided meditations & practical explanations, we will explore experientially what is beyond body & mind. 

We'll discover the roots of awareness: What is consciousness? And what is its relation to the feeling & thinking mind? 

The invitation is to investigate into the existential nature of Awareness – to reveal that Universal Presence, beyond our individual form. Being in full presence with – and as – Consciousness. That stable, spacious & vast Awareness. 

The unique Akasha approach to Yin Yoga merges posture practice & Self Inquiry. It uses the potential of a slow posture practice to investigate into the Nature of Self.

Learn to Practice & Teach Your Way

AYA300-Dean Raphael-W-35.jpg

Each of us walks the path of life with our own unique rhythm. We whole-heartedly accept you & your students – wherever you are on the journey. 

This course will allow you to teach an individualized form of Yin Yoga. You’ll learn how to adapt the emphasis – depending on your own flow and who you are teaching. 

Together, we'll explore physical, energetic & spiritual planes: 

We start at the physical level, providing you with all the knowledge, skills & tools you need. You & your students will learn to feel Yin Yoga from the inside. 

We’ll also research the energetic side of Yin: We’ll investigate the meridians, and we'll work on specific meridian pairs in exemplifying sample classes. 

Moving into the spiritual realms, we’ll use Self Inquiry to enhance our practice. This ancient yet potent technique can quickly take us deeper: We’ll clear the mind, and move beyond our psychology, into the direct experience of the higher Self. This existential form of inquiry intertwines beautifully with the profound Stillness of Yin Yoga. 

Our expert team will guide your journey at each of those levels. We’ll show you how to unlock your true potential as a genuine teacher. And we’ll empower you to guide your students through this profound & life-changing practice in a responsible way.
