What is Yin Yoga?
Yin Yoga originates from the Taoist principle of Yin and Yang, two completely opposite natures complimentary to each-other. Yin Yoga is a powerful, slow and subtle form of yoga which offers dipper impact to tendons and muscles with its meditative impact. In this form of yoga, asanas are combined with pranayama and mediation with a passive relaxation along with deep opening. The postures in this form of yoga are mostly practiced on the floor and held for longer duration (almost 2 to 5 minutes), which is aimed at deeper impact on body tissues, tendons and muscles while connecting the soul through a meditative approach. It is more sort of being in a posture and letting go of different emotions to delve into a more intense connection with the soul. Yin Yoga works with muscles and connective tissues which are considered almost 90% resistance to the flexibility of human body. With its longer duration of pose-hold and practice of breath control, Yin Yoga offers a relatively deeper impact while guiding in the direction of complete calmness. Asanas in Yin Yoga are relatively similar to that of Indian Hatha Yoga but practiced differently to offer a completely different meaning to relaxation and energy harvesting.
Who can apply for the course:
Anyone who like to teach Yin yoga can join this course. To be professional teacher as per yoga alliance standard you must have completed at least 200 /300/500 hours yoga teacher training course.

How to get there
The closest and most convenient airport for you is to fly to New-Delhi. If you are visiting India for the first time then it is better for you to take a flight to Dehradun (city nearby), and from Dehradun is a 30 min drive by car, so you save a hustle.
Delhi airport to Rishikesh by car is a 6 hours journey. We have a transportation package for US$ 150 which will cover your airport pick-up, transfer from Delhi to Rishikesh (by car) and after completion of the course transfer back from Rishikesh to Delhi. One way transportation i.e. Delhi airport to Rishikesh can also be availed for US$ 85. In case, your flight arrives late night and you want to stay overnight in Delhi, airport pick-up cost will be US$ 25 and a reasonably good accommodation at a hotel in Delhi can be arranged for US$ 40 or 50. Our travel arrangements are executed under the supervision of professionals and we are always ready with a back-up plan, in case of emergencies. Another good option is to travel by train (airport to New Delhi train station by car, then by train to Haridwar and from Haridwar to Rishikesh by car). Travel by bus is quite cheap but a bit inconvenient for first time visitors.
Cheap hotels can also be found in Delhi (Main Bazar, Paharganj area) for USD 10~20. From Delhi airport to Paharganj can be reached by airport metro express in less than 20 minutes and it costs less than US$ 2
The rest of the payment should be made on arrival

Posted onExcellent qualityI arrived at the Academy with pre-existing knowledge and years of practice behind me – however the excellent quality and diversity of teachings enabled me to gain more, learn new information and see things from a truly authentic viewpoint. I will always cherish the experience. The support of the co-ordinator and all Staff efforts were from the heart. I also enjoyed the beautiful food that was expertly prepared each day – very nutritious to keep you powered and ready to give 100% - mentally, physically and emotionally. Namaste.
