Yin Yoga has accelerated in popularity as it is easily accessible by a broad demographic of students. More and more studios are seeing the benefits of offering Yin on their schedules. Yin is an excellent practice not only to add to your teaching skill base but also to your personal practice. Join us for the Autumn training, the perfect time for new beginnings, growing new seeds and accelerating your knowledge.
The 55-hour intensive training will assist teachers in delivering safe, informed and engaging yin classes. With only twelve places in total, this small group training will ensure everyone feels acknowledged and seen. The course covers all the relevant areas of teaching such as anatomy, teaching skills and class planning. Not only that, but this intensive will also take you beyond the physical body mechanics. The course is assessed via a written review and a group teaching exercise. Everyone will get a chance to teach part of a real yin yoga class.
Beyond the Physical
Not only will the course include all the relevant ‘physical’ components of Yin Yoga but also the energetic side. Your course leader Kat (1400 hrs E-RYT & YACEP) is well known in Perth for sell-out Yin Yoga classes and events. Kat has trained with Yin Yoga’s premier teachers Jo Phee & Sarah Powers. With special interests in Trauma Aware Yoga and the energetic components of the practice, Kat takes the Yin experience to the next level. Kat continues to update her knowledge every year to keep her classes relevant and interesting.
Joining Kat is senior teacher Josie Tanham who has over thirty-years of yoga experience. Josie brings with her a curiosity for Eastern movement and Mindfulness Meditation traditions and practices. Throughout the course, there will be other guest teachers who offer a variety of different teaching styles.
We will explore:
- Traditional Chinese Medicine philosophy
- The Meridians & five elements
- Buddhist wisdom
You will learn how to take your students on a journey beyond the physical body with confidence. Not only that the course will give you valuable insights into yourself and your students. Lessons for on and off the mat. If you are interested in delivering Dharma talks and philosophy into your classes, this course will give you a great inspiration to do so.

Kind Words from previous students:
“Kat’s Yin intensive training was excellent! Kat is such a knowledgeable teacher and shares her wisdom in a very accessible way. There is so much thought put into each aspect of the course, and it covered a wide range of different areas of Yin Yoga. I would recommend anyone interested in learning more about Yin Yoga to train with Kat.” – Julie Sheridan, 2020
“Kat is a brilliant teacher who creates a space where people feel safe, welcome and supported. The course content is delivered in an engaging way with the perfect balance of theory, practice, science and Eastern philosophy. All with a good smattering of humour! I would 100% recommend it to anyone wishing to deepen their understanding and teaching style for Yin Yoga.” – Claire South, 2020.
“Kat, your intuition for what your students need is awe-inspiring. Never once did the energy not flow or stagnate during the week, and I felt engaged the whole time. I feel so blessed to have been a part of your Yin YTT. I feel inspired, equipped and ready to go out into the world of Yin Yoga teaching.” – Melina Kammann, 2020.
“I think this course came at the exact moment in my life that I needed. Shifting my career to teach yoga was not easy in the beginning. I learned so much from Kat’s Yin YTT and have more confidence and tools to use in my classes. I am thankful for everything that I learned and lived during the course. There was so much love and support from everyone.” – Rodrigo Galan Matas Liviero, 2020.
