Join Cora Geroux, Liz Bennett and for the first time, Em Cruickshank – for an anatomy informed, 7 Day – 50 HR Yin Yoga Practice Immersion & Teacher Training.
Just as the light cannot exist without the dark, yang cannot exist without yin. Yin yoga offers us a balancing force in our yoga practice in relation to the strong dynamic styles of yoga such as hatha, vinyasa and ashtanga.
Yin and Yang are concepts that govern all of life, yet stem from ancient Taoist philosophy. Indian yogis also held such concepts when they referred to hatha yoga – Ha ( sun ) Tha ( Moon ).
Yin Yoga is a slow, mainly floor based practice where poses are held from 2 – 20 minutes. This style of practice brings immense physical, energetic and mental healing as we work with the Meridian system from Traditional Chinese Medicine.

Liz has been teaching yoga and working as a physiotherapist for over 15 years. Having my early physiotherapy career in the hospital system, then moving into private practice where I have remained, I’ve worked with people in a huge variety of settings, both in a hands on treatment capacity and teaching yoga to clients.
Liz Began teaching yoga at 21, and has trained extensively with Simon Borg Olivier, Bianca Machliss and Michael De Manicore. She has been teaching Anatomy & Physiology to yoga teachers since 2006. For more information about Liz, you can visit her website.
Em began practicing in yoga in 1998, however a snapped ACL shortly after led her yang practice to be intermittent for several years. However, Em built up a strong, inner practice which she continues to build to this day. Em first qualified as a yoga teacher with Byron School of Yoga, and has gone on to study yin with Sarah Powers.
In the past several years Em’s study and practice of Buddhist thought has gained tremendous depth. She is a sought after yin, restorative & meditation teacher with a large and loyal following. You can learn more about Em by checking out her Instagram @the.yin.crowd
This course is open to 200 HR Yoga Teachers, and dedicated students. After this course you will be able to teach Yin Yoga, provided you are already a qualified yoga teacher.
