Welcome whomever you are to deepen your knowledge of yin yoga and continue your journey on the path of soft wisdom. The Yin Yoga TT – Basic consists of 50 hours of theoretical and practical studies in yin yoga.” 


“This education is not an education but a journey in being human and a part of our own beautiful nature. It heals wounds and opens doors.” – Pia Stider 


This 50 hours basic education entails the foundation of yin yoga with a special focus on anatomy and individualized yoga. You will get a solid in depth knowledge in all parts of yin yoga. The course is for anyone who wants an immersion in yin yoga and the path of soft wisdom for your own sake and for you who wants to teach yin yoga. The course consists of theoretical and practical studies in yin yoga.


The largest part of yoga has an Indian origin and its basis in Indian philosophy. In yin yoga we move towards the Chinese philosophy of Daoism and Traditional Chinese Medicin (TCM). Here we find the concepts of yin and yang and the idea that we need balance to maintain harmony and health.


During the education we will look closer at the physical and mental focus area of yin yoga and how we can teach yin yoga with a functional, individualized and therapeutic approach. Seen from the different focus areas of the body and from different skeletal variations, we find ways to modify the positions so that they suits the individual.

The goal is that you after the education will feel safe with yin yoga as a method and be able to apply its principals and positions in your own practice and teaching if you want.

The course consist of both theory and practice, both lectures and own studies, of group exercises and talks.t 16.00.

Here are some of the things we will touch upon:

PHILOSOPHY: Introduction to Taoism and basic themes within yin yoga and how to create yin yoga classes with different philosophical themes.

ANATOMY: Functional anatomy in yin yoga: Fascia, joints, skeletal variations and more.

YIN POSITIONS: Basic knowledge of all the yin yoga positions and variations from an individual perspective. Positions for “problem bodies”. Materials and assists in yin yoga.

PEDAGOGY: Teaching yin yoga. The role of the teacher. Sequencing. Rebounds.

MISC THEORY: Muscle groups and focus areas. Yin and yang. Qi.

“Revolutionary! I feel that my insight into and understanding of yin yoga has radically changed – Now it feels more important and as a necessary complement to all the yang in my life. I feel that Surya has created a unique and loving atmosphere in the group and shared his knowledge in a clear, easily digested and relaxed manner. 5 stars to Surya!” – Anders Nylander
