Yintensive Yin Yoga Teacher Training

Yin Yoga Teacher Training

Yin Yoga is a highly therapeutic, meditative style that requires a skilled approach to sequencing, queing and theming. To teach it well one has to know the philosophical theory that was it’s genesis and the anatomical and physiological protocol that makes it such a healing practice. So often we teachers regurgitate the rhetoric of our teachers but Yin is more than theory. In Yin Yoga Teacher Training you will learn the science of Yin Yoga and you will learn how to apply your new understanding to not just Yin classes but all of your formats.

Hybrid Program

Yin Yoga Teacher Training is conveniently divided into two modules. The first is fully online and self guided. The second module, Yintensive® is live in person. 

Module I

Yin Yoga Teacher Training is convieniently divided into two modules. In Module I you will learn about the science of Yin. Find out what is really happening when you apply load, duration, breathing and theming to tissues. You will access module I content from the online portal. Bite sized lectures will introduce you to these invaluable concepts in a fun and accessible way. Your access to the portal will never expire. Take as much time as you need to absorb the information. 

Module II

Yin Yoga Teacher Training Module II will prepare you to apply the concepts of Module I to class sequencing, theming, groups, and individual bodies.  Yoga teachers who understand the nervous systems, the science of movement and the skill of storytelling are in high demand. This training will prepare you to share a Yin practice that is transformative for students and clients.

Alumni Feedback


“I would definitely recommend this training and any of Mandy’s trainings to others. Mandy is one of the most knowledgeable and well-spoken yogis I have ever met. This training was packed with information, well organized and structured, and left me wanting more. I probably got as much or more out of this 5 days than my 200 hr YTT. This class reinvigorated my desire to learn about and teach yoga.”



“Mandy is a wealth of knowledge and she is able to articulate her message clearly and with passion. She is a great example of true dedication to her purpose and it’s amazing to learn from her. I look forward to the next opportunity.”


“This course really challenged some of my teachings and understandings of fitness and yoga. While it was uncomfortable at first, I grew in the short time we were together to embrace it, make space for it. I tend to avoid conflict in all aspects of my life…sitting in discomfort and digesting. Hummmm sounds like Yin? I was most attracted to the science behind the practice…and the training did not disappoint. Knowledge, resources, science, resources…loved it all! It was amazingly overwhelming and I’m super excited to continue experiencing Yin both as a practitioner and teacher.”
