JOIN YIN YOGA SPECIALISTS RACHEL FEARNLEY & LUCY FOSTER-PERKINS FOR A 50 HOUR YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING IN THE HEALTH FOCUSED VILLAGE OF CANGGU, BALI
IN THIS EDUCATIONAL AND TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCE, YOU WILL DEEPEN YOUR PRACTICE AND LEARN THE TOOLS TO TEACH YIN YOGA
This training is for those who want to dive deeper into the subtle practice of Yin Yoga.
Maybe you’ve experienced the benefits of Yin Yoga and you’d like to learn how to teach others, or perhaps you have an inclination that you need more “yin” in your life, but you’re not sure how or would like to learn more. Or both?
During the training, you’ll be guided through reflective Yin Yoga, meditation and gentle breath work practices to help you truly experience what it feels like to embody “yin”. Whether you’re looking to teach others after the training or not, this training encourages you to experience the effects of the practices first to empower you to speak from your own personal experience.
You’ll also come away with tools that will help you feel lighter and more energised, having opened the gateway to your inner landscape.
Yin Yoga targets the deep connective tissue - fascia - and the meridians that run through it (based on 5 elements and meridian theory from Traditional Chinese Medicine). The work can be subtle, but the effects are profound - not only for your body but more so for your mind and overall health.
Lucy & Rachel invite you to join them on this journey. With a common goal and love of sharing these practices, they have created the training to serve you from the inside out.
Yin Practice – An introduction to the history and lineage of Yin yoga. The foundational principals of a simple practice for everybody using the four stages of a yin pose.
Inner Landscapes – 5 elements and meridian theory as taught in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).

Breath Work – Understanding how the breath is used to shift stagnant energy in our Yin poses & to enhance our meditation practice.
Mind – We’ll dive deeper into meditation and mindfulness practices and learn how they are integral to our Yin Yoga practice.
Yin Teaching – The subtle art of creating & holding a safe space for Yin classes, The language of yin & teaching, Creating a class structure.
Embodying Yin – Taking the wisdom of Yin & TCM into our everyday lives, physically, energetically and mentally.

Alternatively, then it’s absolutely no problem finding (often more affordable) accommodation in the neighbourhood. As mentioned generally about 50% of our students choose to stay off-site. And it makes absolutely no difference to the overall experience of the training.
Yin training was a huge revelation for me! I have always looked for information everywhere about meridians, yin, breathing exercises... It was never clear and above all I was loosing myself. The training allowed me to discover the world of Yin, to explore theory and practice, to understand the important theories and to retain them! The teachers are incredible, they have so much knowledge to share and at the same time are open to receive as well. It was a real beautiful experience, feeling the benefits of yin on both my physical and moral state. I loved every class and feel really grateful. I want to learn more but above all I want to practice, make people discover what I have learned and... help them to feel better ! Thanks to the whole team, I will do it again without hesitation ! :)
Everything and more! The yoga teachers were excellent. They were knowledgeable, interesting, engaging and delivered both the written and practical education enthusiastically and passionately. The location was fabulous and I stayed at the Oasis which was first class. A healthy hearty breakfast in the morning supplemented by coffee and delights from the Cafe just across the road. I felt rejuvenated and inspired at the end of the week. The group consisted of people from all across the Globe and everyone was so friendly. I attended this alone and did not find this a problem at all.
I haven’t quite processed everything I have learnt from this week. But I know I learnt more about myself, my body, my mind than before I feel more aware of what my body wants and needs and excited to share my knowledge with others.
I would recommend The Peaceful Warriors yin yoga teacher training with Rachel and Jody. It has been a perfect 50HR with so much new knowledge, nice people and talented teachers. I especially loved how the philosophy upon the meridians, the breath work and mindfulness and also the overall structure of a day in the course. It left room for movement, as we did two classes a day and a short practice in the afternoon. The studio provided a lot of bolsters, blocks, mats, belts and nothing was missing here either. I’ve gained a lot of knowledge and new perspectives, so so so good! :-)
A transformative course run by incredibly passionate and knowledgeable teachers. I will be following these teachers as a student for life. :)
