Learn to teach Yin Yoga 

With the increasing demands of our fast paced lives, stress is a major factor on our health. Stress manifests in the body and mind in various ways, leading to fatigue, ailment, and even disease. The practice of Yin Yoga is becoming more and more recognized by health and wellness experts for maintaining good health and restoring a sense of well-being. 

Yin Yoga is a therapeutic practice that has transformative effects on that body and mind. The gentle but consistent stimulation of the connective tissue encourages long-term health and flexibility of the joints, recharges the energetic
system of the body, and naturally draws the mind inward into a relaxed, meditative state. It also prepares the body and mind for longer meditation practices. 

This training is designed for teachers and dedicated practitioners with at least two years of experience. Prior experience in Yin Yoga is not required; however, you need a keen interest in the subjects of Anatomy, Qi Theory, Philosophy, and Meditation. Aspiring Yin teachers will gain the skills and knowledge to confidently teach series of set sequenced classes with special focus on target areas such as hips, hamstrings, and quads.

Testimonials 

Hello my Yin Yoga loving friends. I highly recommend this course led by Monica Angelatos of Yoga Public. Whether you want to take your yoga practice experience deeper or are a teacher, she takes you through the matrix of fascia and consciousnesses in a super mind blowing and heart opening way. Her trainings are rich with surprises and inspiration as she is incredibly knowledgable and well versed in all areas of anatomy, yoga therapeutics, and sacred sciences. Hands down, one of my favourite teachers ever!!! ~Serena Postal

As a Trauma Sensitive Yoga teacher I was drawn to learn Yin Yoga to learn how to heal people but also to teach them how to heal themselves through the practice of Yin Yoga. In attending The Science of Yin Yoga I not only learned about the philosophy of yin and yang, but also how to work the body’s deep tissues of our ligaments, joints, and even our bones. Monica inspires and supports her students to thoroughly investigate the benefits and methodologies used in Yin Yoga practice. I have weaved the asanas into my students practice to help them reap the benefits of Yin Yoga such as keeping them in emotional and physical balance. ~Joanne Scott

I'd highly recommend Monica's The Science of Yin Yoga 60-hour certification program for any and all Yoga teachers and experienced practitioners wanting to take their Yoga knowledge and practice to the next level. My participation in Monica's 60-hour course helped me deeper dive into Yoga philosophy, anatomy, and also gain a better understanding of our our fascial network. As a Yoga teacher, Monica's course very effectively taught me to create and lead balanced Yin Yoga classes founded upon relaxation and restoring our fascial fluidity. ~Derek Pang 

I attended Monica Angelato’s Yin Yoga Teacher training program in 2016. Monica is a very experienced, highly educated yoga instructor. Her instruction is engaging and she presents us with cutting edge scientific studies which support the mind body link and the spiritual component of the fascia throughout the body. Class material presented is always new and exciting. We were given a solid foundation in anatomy and when I completed the course I was confidently able to put together yoga sequences and guide others in their practice, without having had any other teacher training at that time. Monica puts her heart and soul into her teaching and can inspire and teach both beginners and advanced teachers and students. She creates a very supportive, caring environment in which to learn and is always available for questions and help even ongoing after the course has ended. ~Annette Wolf

Yogassage @H'Om

Join this 4-week registered class session.  Yogassage is a therapeutic stretch class which targets the joints, muscles and connective tissues of the body. Each yoga pose is held for 3-5 min. allowing the muscles enough time to release, moving the stretch into the deeper layers of the tissue. Thai Massage is incorporated in each pose to facilitate a deeper muscular release. Students will find that they have a greater range of motion, improved mobility, and flexibility.  This is a head to toe relaxing, restorative experience. Classes are small, limited to 4 students.  A great deal of personal attention can be expected as Monica likes to be hand with her assists.
