The well established and recognized Yoga Passage Teacher Training course provides the fundamentals of teaching Yoga in a safe and intelligent way. The initial program got underway in 2004 and has been operating and evolving over the past thirteen years. The YP Teacher Training course has offered hundreds of participants the space to expand their knowledge of the practice and gain the tools to share the teachings. Graduates of the course have gone on to teach at local studios, carry their knowledge abroad as far as Nicaragua, Australia, and India. Others have opened their own yoga facilities and even lead their own teacher training courses.
The Yoga Passage teacher training course is a profound and personal experience, encouraging growth, introspection, and creativity. It is based on the ancient teaching system of Yoga, integrating the student's daily life into the yoga training. By the end of the course, the student will possess a firm foundation for teaching others, in addition to strenthening his or her own yoga practice with self-discipline, and awareness of the nature of body, mind and spirit. Upon graduation from the course, students will reciece a Yoga Teacher Certificate with 200 Hours of qualification and will be confident to lead a safe and effective practice, and further, graduates will emerge transformed.

The course is offered twice a year in two popular formats. The Fall-Winter course is 12 weekends spread out over the span of 7 months running Mid September to Mid March. The second course format or "July Intensive" is held on the weekdays of the four weeks during July 8:00AM to 5:00PM with breaks and time for lunch and weekends off.

YIN IS IN!

Yin Yoga Advanced Teacher Training with Alan Mileham. E-RYT500 and YACEP with Yoga Alliance USA, YA ID 84306.

As more and more Yoga Studios add Yin Yoga to their schedule, the demand for Trained Yin Yoga Teachers is ever increasing.

Over the course of the 15 Hour weekend, you will learn the Elements & Fundamentals of a Yin Yoga Practice, along with Modifications & the Sequencing of a Yin Yoga Class. Mindfulness & The Meridians in Yin Yoga will also be discussed.

This Yin Intensive TT with Alan Mileham, focuses on establishing a strong foundation from which participants that attend the Yin TT are able to apply to teach Yin Yoga to their students. In my experience a strong foundation is the key to any Yoga Practice.

We will spend time on the three main benefits or principles of Yin Yoga, the Physical, Mental/Mindfulness & Energetics. You will learn the differences between Yang & Yin Yoga as it relates to Yang & Yin Tissues in the body. Different types of tissues require different modalities of exercise. This Yin TT is a blend of all of the Yin Yoga TT'S that I've taken.

He has in access of 3000 Training Hours, and has taken many Yoga Trainings both locally and internationally.

Anatomy is the key. Without an understanding of muscles and joints, true confidence in teaching Yin Yoga is elusive.
In this training we will focus on the 14 joint segments, discussing which joints are involved in our Yin postures as well as our range of motion which helps us understand why each person practices poses differently.
Having learned the 14 joint movements we will explore the 10 muscle groups involved in a Yin practice.
Our practice of poses will be augmented with movement tests we perform on each other.
In addition to lectures and demonstrations we will have 1.5 hours of Yin and or Yang practice each day.
Key concepts in this training are:

14 skeletal segments.
10 muscle groups.
7 categories of poses
tension vs compression
skeletal variations
assisted yin yoga

The key principles of this training are based on Alan’s studies with Paul Grilley.

Please note: The only prerequisite for this Level 2 Yin Training at Yoga Passage, is that you've taken some form of a basic Yin Yoga Teacher Training.
