What's included

This online training is broken down into two sections:

  1. Philosophy and Practical Applications

  2. Teaching Yin Yoga

The first section looks at the history and origins of this practice as well as the components that define it. We'll explore the principles of Yin, the benefits and the energetic body.

As a yin yoga instructor, your students will look to you for guidance and will place their trust in your understanding of asanas, sequencing and theming of a class. 

 

Your students will also turn to you for your yoga philosophy, your ability to express yourself clearly, and your empathy and observational skills. This course can help you build strength in all of these areas.

Kassandra's Yin Yoga Teacher Training is such an incredible resource that allows for teachers/trainers of all different backgrounds to add on to their offerings. Upon completion of the course I was immediately able to confidently begin offering Yin Yoga classes to my private and group students. All trainers could benefit from being able to offer Yin style classes to whatever yang style programs they already offer. This program will also help them to better understand working with the joints and connective tissues. 

 

Kassandra has laid this program out in such a fantastic way. It is easy to complete in independent study. The book makes for a great reference manual to use throughout the program, as well as afterwards as you begin offering Yin classes. The program itself is very accessible, and user friendly. Kassandra is a wealth of knowledge, and deep dives in to the poses, the history, the anatomy, and the main fundamentals (such as Chakras and Meridians). I could not recommend this program, and this teacher trainer more.

Meet Kassandra!

I'm an Ottawa-based Yoga Instructor on a mission to help others feel great with yoga. I started practicing yoga in 2008 as a way to become more flexible and learn to manage stress and anxiety. Little did I know in a few short years I would have the privilege of becoming a teacher, passionately committed to sharing yoga with others who, like me, were sick of feeling less than vibrant.

 

Before I started practicing, I barely had any energy, I couldn't quiet my mind for a single minute and always seemed to have aches and pains in my legs and lower back. Once I started practicing regularly, bit by bit I became stronger, calmer and braver. Yoga is now ingrained in my daily life in a fundamental way. It helps me meet any challenges I may face by teaching me to be present, focused and receptive.

Through my Yoga with Kassandra YouTube channel, I've been able to introduce Yin Yoga to hundreds of thousands of people from across the globe. What started as my own personal sadhana to ease stress and anxiety quickly unraveled into my greatest passion, an exciting career and a whole new way of life!

My aim is to create accessible, easy to follow yoga classes that you can do in the comfort of your own home.

I hope you find value in my offerings and thank you so much for stopping by.

Knowledgeable, well spoken, easy to understand, clear and concise are all ways to describe Kassandra’s Yin Yoga Teacher Training. She is just incredible, especially in the way she breaks down and introduces Yin Yoga’s origin, principles, benefits, preparation, poses, and the differences between yin and restorative yoga. This is a highly informative and easy to digest training. 

 

Our bodies all need yin yoga to help us find better balance inside and outside of ourselves, and I’m so excited to be able to put this new knowledge to use in my daily life and yoga classes. Thank you ‘Yoga with Kassandra’ for opening my mind, eyes, and heart to the very beautiful and beneficial world of yin yoga!
