Online Yin Yoga Teacher Training
ONLINE YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAININGS
11TH JUNE 2021
50HR YOGA ALLIANCE REGISTERED
YIN YOGA SPECIALISTS RACHEL FEARNLEY & LUCY FOSTER-PERKINS HAVE TAKEN THEIR 50 HOUR YIN YOGA TEACHER TRAINING ONLINE.
HOW IT WORKS ONLINE
THIS CONTINUES TO BE AN EDUCATIONAL AND TRANSFORMATIVE EXPERIENCE. YOU WILL DEEPEN YOUR PRACTICE AS YOU GAIN THE TOOLS TO EMBODY AND TEACH YIN YOGA .
This course will be taught with a mix of pre-recorded and live content. There are therefor two ways of taking part;
1) You can choose to join the live Q&As with Rachel or Lucy from 11th June and at the same time work through the pre-recorded content over the duration of the 2 weeks. The live Q&A calls are scheduled between 2-6pm Bali time and will take between 75-90 minutes.
This will require a commitment of 2-5 hours a day. The live calls will be at fixed times but you’ll be able to work through the pre-recorded content in your own time.
2) If you’d like to take your time to work through the course then you have up to 3 month to complete all the content (if you’d like the certificate at the end). You can watch all the recordings of the live calls back in your own time so you won’t miss out on any of the content. You will still have a specific order to work through the content so that the course is congruent and progressive.
Or you can do a mix of the two - you can join in with some of the live material over the first 2 weeks and watch the recordings back if you’ve missed a couple of live calls or lectures. This course can really work around your schedule!
Remember you have 3 months to compete all the content so you can work at the pace you want.
To get an idea of the course check out the experiences from our students who took our in-person training in December 2019.
WHO IS THIS TRAINING FOR?
This training is for those who want to dive deeper into the subtle practice of Yin Yoga.
Maybe you’ve experienced the benefits of Yin Yoga and you’d like to learn how to teach others, or perhaps you have an inclination that you need more “yin” in your life, but you’re not sure how or would like to learn more. Or both?!
During the training you’ll be guided through reflective Yin Yoga, meditation and gentle breath work practices to help you truly experience what it feels like to embody “yin”. Whether you’re looking to teach others after the training or not, this training encourages you to experience the effects of the practices first to empower you to speak from your own personal experience.
You’ll also gain the tools that will help you feel lighter and more energised, having opened the gateway to your inner landscape.
Yin Yoga targets the deep connective tissue - fascia - and the meridians that run through it (based on 5 element and meridian theory from Traditional Chinese Medicine). The work can be subtle, but the effects , in our experience, are profound - not only for your body but more so for your mind and overall health.
We invite you to take this journey with us. With a common goal and love of sharing these practices, we have created this training to serve you from the inside out. We look forward to seeing you there.
“This is not only some Yin Yoga Teacher Training. It’s a deep dive into the body, but also into the mind. You are learning how to teach, but also going “inside” a lot as well. Into the true self, without the shame, with real honesty. Both Lucy and Rachel are amazing teachers, but also inspiring leaders and role models. I am so grateful for this experience and feel ready to teach and spread the miracles of YIN!”
- Olga, Yin Yoga (In Person) TTC December 2019
ABOUT YOUR TEACHERS
Lucy’s journey to Yin (Yin as a yoga practice and Yin as a concept) started after she experienced adrenal fatigue in 2014. Her journey from studying and practicing the more subtle practices of mindfulness, meditation, facial release and meridian-based Yin Yoga lead her back to health and offered a more intimate relationship with her body and energy.
With the increase of exhaustion in modern culture Lucy enjoys passing on the teachings she has received on Traditional Chinese Medicine Element Theory, the subtle practices of Yin Yoga and healing methods of Ayurveda to empower others to find their own journey towards balance.
Lucy also teaches Vinyasa Flow, Hatha and Ayurvedic practices. As an ex-professional dancer Lucy has a solid understanding of the body, how it moves and the subtle art of listening to the messages it offers us.
She has been teaching yoga around the globe for 7 years & sharing the message of Yin Yoga for over 5 years & now brings her wisdom of meditation, mindfulness, 5 element theory and breath work to a 6 day, 50 hour Yoga Teacher Training in Canggu, Bali.
Rachel is trained in both classical Indian Yoga and Chinese Taoist Yoga & specialises in Yin Yoga, Breath work & Ayurveda.
Having completed several trainings in Vinyasa and Ashtanga, Rachel recognised the need within herself to move towards a more nourishing and nurturing approach to her own practice and therefor her teachings.
Rachel believes that we all possess the ability to heal ourselves from the inside out, that by cultivating deep presence we open up our channels of awareness and can create radical shifts on our own lives.
She is a deeply passionate and authentic teacher who practices what she teaches and supports her students to do the same, believing that when we are in alignment with the truth of who we are, our life begins to flourish beyond anything we ever thought possible.

LEARNING ONLINE - LIVE LECTURES, PRE-RECORDED MATERIAL & SELF-STUDY
The course will be divided into live Q&As, and pre-recorded classes, practices, lectures and asana clinics, as well as your own teaching practice.
The live calls will be weekly for 2 weeks from the start of the course. Each live call will be recorded so you can watch the recording in your own time if you miss it. However, the live calls will give you an opportunity to ask questions as they come up during the lectures and gain wisdom from the Q&A calls with Rachel and Lucy.
We’ve created pre-recorded Yin (and also Yang) classes for you to follow at home. Each one will relate to the Element that you’ll learn about that day so you’ll begin to really embody Yin Yoga, mindfulness and meditation and relate to the 5 Element theory. These classes will also help you to relate to the lectures - both live and/or pre-recorded.
We’ve created clear video demonstrations of each pose where we break each pose down and show you how to teach them to a variety of bodies and facilities. Each day you’re required to practice teaching the poses to a willing friend (in person or online) so you’ll have plenty of practice teaching throughout the course.

Curious about how our in-person translates to online training?
Julia Deipenbruck has taken an in-person training and online training with Rachel and Lucy. Our Online Yin Yoga TTC follows a similar format as our online 25 Hr Breath Coach Training to give you the same in depth and personal experience.
Check out Julia’s experience below…
“I loved the course (Online Breath Coach Training) with Rachel and Lucy. It was already my second training with them and I can say that their teaching is great both face-to-face as well as online. They are knowledgeable, fun, calm and very supportive teachers. The structure of the course is great, the teaching assignments help a lot to deepen your teaching practice.”

ASSESSMENT AND CERTIFICATON
At the end of the course you’ll be asked to complete a multiple choice quiz and submit a short video of you explaining a specific aspect of Yin Yoga and a second video of you teaching 1 pose. Rachel and Lucy, and their team, will assess each person individually and send you a digital version of your certificate.
We are setting you up for success! You will have a lot of teaching experience during the course and plenty of time to embody and understand the principles of Yin Yoga, meditation and mindfulness, and the meridian 5 Element system from Traditional Chinese Medicine. We want you to leave the course feeling confident and inspired, ready to spread Yin Yoga around the world!
