November 2024 – Feb 2025

This 100 hr Yin and Restorative Yoga CPD Training is suitable for yoga teachers who wish to explore and teach Yin and Restorative Yoga. It offer a deep and rich journey that will nourish your mind, body and soul. Yin and Restorative yoga practices are very compatible in nature. Yin Yoga is rooted in the ancient shamanic tradition of China and in the Chinese Daoist philosophy of being at one with everything and in harmony with your own nature. Restorative Yoga, also known as the “Rest and Digest” practice originated from the teachings of B.K.S Iyengar and aims to bring balance to both the body and mind. Even though the source, focus and energetics of these two practices differ, the postures and practice are very compatible. The offering of both paths side by side allows students to draw from both Indian and Chinese ancient wisdom to create balance, wholeness and connection. 

The training will be held both in the Green Lotus Yoga studio in Gort, Galway and live on  Zoom. 

Upon completion of the training, you will also have access to the GLY Members Online Training Platform, where you can re-watch the live lectures whenever you like. Teachers who complete this CPD can use the 100 hours towards CE credits and towards building up towards Advanced 300 hr GLY accreditation.  

This Training can also be taken as a 200 hr Yin Fusion Foundation Training.
