About this event

Welcome to Yin Variations with Joe Barnett!

Annual Yin Variations 200-hr training goes ONLINE for 2020!

A rare opportunity to study from home 2 days a week yet immerse yourself into the practice of Yin Yoga for 99 days of your life. Mostly, the course is offered LIVE on Zoom to enhance the interactive learning environment.

About the course: This three-month intensive, Yin Variations Teacher Training is specially designed to explore a hands-on approach in which the trainees learn to see, feel and most importantly dialogue about the variations of yin yoga poses and sequencing with fellow aspiring teachers. This dialogue leads to a sensitive and introspective approach that each budding Yin teacher will carry to their students on their path to find their unique shapes and techniques. The immersion will leave you with the ability to guide others on their yin yoga journey.

JOE BARNETT (E-RYT 500), a senior Yin Yoga teacher based in Arizona, USA. Joe was the first assistant to Paul Grilley, the pioneer of Yin Yoga. Over the last two decades, by contributing to systematize teacher training courses of Paul Grilley, Joe has helped over some thousand aspirational yoga teachers from all over the world in a comprehensive language and with a compassionate attitude.
