Hobart Yin Yoga Teacher Training Immersion 50hrs

“There is a yin and yang to everything in the universe. They are like two sides to the same coin, one cannot exist without the other and they compliment each other”

Yoga Space is pleased to present the 50-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Melanie McLaughlin from the Yin space.

Join us for this unique opportunity to explore your “yin-side” over a 4.5-day Urban Retreat. This course is open to those who are either already 200-hour qualified yoga teachers, and who want to deepen their knowledge and practice of Yin yoga, while cultivating teaching skills that will allow them to facilitate this practice for their students, OR dedicated students wanting to dive in and learn more for their own personal practice and enjoyment.

What's on offer urban training style?

Join us this Summer, February 26th-2nd March for an urban-style teacher training with Melanie McLaughlin, who will be delivering her inspiring 50 hour Yin Teacher Training programme.

We will slip off the radar for a few days of yin “chill-pill”. Exploring our ‘Yin-sides’ over 4 days of deep immersion into the other side of the yoga coin, we are keeping it small and intimate and you will be fully versed in the art of teaching yin when you are finished. We answer all the “whys” and practice twice to bookend the day and layer the intellectual information with somatic experience.

Yin yoga is growing in popularity, largely in response to what has become a very “yang”-dominated yoga culture. People are discovering the benefits of a quieter, more still practice – not just in their physical bodies, but also in their nervous and energy systems.



Mel has been passionate about a yin-style practice for over 10 years, through her own personal practice and self-study. In 2012 Mel formalized her training with Paul Grilley through his 200-hour Teacher Training program in the USA, recently revisited for ongoing training, and now shares this wealth of experience, insight and expertise through her very own Yoga Australia recognized 100-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training course.



The course material you can look forward to will include:

•A study of Yin asanas

•An alternate look at anatomy and physiology for yoga

•Explore the differences between a yin and yang practice

•Yin sequencing and class themes/props

•Pranayama and meditation in a Yin practice

•Muscle meridian theory and related organs (courtesy of Dr Motoyama & Paul Grilley’s research)

•The energy system inc meridians and chakras

•Fascia research and its function and qualities relevant to YIN

•The concept and importance of Chi

•Teaching styles and methodologies in Yin yoga, including “partner yin” and “wall yin”
