Online yoga teacher training – Yin yoga

For open-minded, curious yoga teachers and students

Have you ever wondered if there’s a better way to teach yoga, one that doesn’t involve putting your students into uncomfortable, unsustainable postures?

Maybe you’ve considered teacher training, but it’s been hard to find like-minded, compassionate and curious people and an inclusive space to learn.

Would you love to arm yourself with new skills, but also build connections, exchange ideas and ask questions in an intimate environment, not be just one of many in a crowded course?

Discover Yin yoga online teacher training with Leonie Lockwood

The online course includes 35 hours of livestreamed content plus 10 hours of pre-recorded modules and 5 hours of self-directed study for a 50-hour certification. In a small, intimate group of no more than 10 students, you’ll have every question answered and a chance to build skills and community with peers.

This training is for yoga teachers (part-time, new and mature teachers all welcome) and Yin students with a minimum 12 months’ experience.

Inclusive and open-minded

Yin yoga is for everybody and for every body type. A flexible mindset is more important than being physically flexible. This is what makes a Yin yoga practice sustainable in the long-term.

Compassionate and curious
By understanding functional anatomy, and the philosophy of Yin yoga, you’ll unlock a new way of instructing, that respects the abilities and limitations of your students and keeps them returning to their mat.

Flexible delivery
With no travel time needed, just roll out your mat in the comfort of your own home and let’s get started.

Please note: The livestreamed components of this course are held at set times and will not be recorded. 100% attendance is required for certification.

‘Leonie has a wealth of knowledge and innate understanding of the vastness of Yin yoga. She has given me all the tools I need, as well as an understanding of the complexities and subtleties of this practice on all of its levels – physical, mental, emotional, energetic. I am very grateful to have had this training and learning.‘

Meet Leonie Lockwood

I began offering Yin yoga training because I felt teachers needed a better understanding of our individual anatomy and how that affects our ability to ‘do’ poses. I’d seen so many students come to classes, be adjusted by teachers, but unable to maintain the adjusted shape. They wouldn’t return to yoga because they thought they were too inflexible. Something was missing.
