50 HR YIN YOGA INTENSIVE - SYDNEY
Just as the light cannot exist without the dark, yang cannot exist without yin. Yin yoga offers us a balancing force in our yoga practice in relation to the strong dynamic styles of yoga such as hatha, vinyasa and ashtanga.
WOKE Yoga in Sydney, NSW is about waking up. Waking up to your true potential, and the life that you’ve been dreaming of in those quiet moments of reflection. We believe that the tools of yoga offer us a path towards that life. Yin Yoga - described by Bernie Clark, author of The Complete Guide To Yin Yoga, as “the other half of yoga” allows us to finally slow down long enough to attune to our true nature. Our 50 HR Yin Yoga Teacher Training and Practice Immersion will give you the tools to teach yin yoga, if you’re already a qualified yoga teacher, as well as the insights of how to bring yin yoga more deeply, and effectively into your life. This training is open to both yoga teachers, and dedicated yin yoga students.

YIN TT FAQ
It’s normal to have questions, or feel unsure about embarking on your first YTT. Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive.
WANT MORE INFO?
Fill out the form below to request a detailed prospectus for our upcoming intake.
Q. Do I need to be a yoga teacher already to do the course?
A. Nope. Our course is designed for yoga teachers, however, in each intake of 20 we always have at least 3-5 dedicated students who are not yoga teachers.
Q. Will I be able to teach Yin Yoga after taking this course
A. Yes! Of course. Provided you already have a minimum of a 200 HR Yoga certificate.
Q. What if I have no desire to actually teach yoga, can I still do the course?
A. Of course. These days, yoga teacher training is where curious students go to learn the deeper practices of yoga. If you want to teach great, if not - you’ll still get a lot of valuable information and experience out of the course that you can use in whatever way you like.
Why train with us?
We’re a little different…
In presence over performance
We’re much less interested in what your yoga practice looks like, and much more concerned with what it feels like, and how you relate to your body and your experience on the mat. Yoga is an inner process, which can not be measured by how deep your forward bends are, or how far you go into saddle. The asana are tools that help us explore, and understand ourselves more deeply, not the ultimate goal in themselves.
In inclusivity, accessibility and fun
Yoga truly is for every-body, and we don’t just give this idiom lip service we actually live it. Our 200 HR Foundations Teacher Training always includes a module on Trauma Informed Yoga and Yoga for Larger Bodies, and our yin yoga course opens up the conversation about individual variation in skeletal structure ( biology ) and personal history ( biography ).
If you have an injury or limitation our faculty cares, and is super skilled in how to work with almost every situation. We’ve had students enrol in our Teacher Trainings from the age of 23 - 67 and we’ve loved them all.
In studying with the best
Our highly experienced faculty have trained with some of the best Yin Yoga teachers in the world. Cora Geroux, the creator and lead trainer of the 50 HR Yin Course has been teaching yin yoga for almost a decade, after first training with Bernie Clark ( author of The Complete Guide To Yin Yoga ) in Vancouver, Canada. Since that time she has continued to study under Sarah Powers ( author of Insight Yoga ) and holds a BA in Psychology. Em Cruickshank has also spent time training with Sarah Powers, and Taoist energy master Mantak Chia, and is a yin yoga & meditation specialist. Our anatomy teacher Liz Bennett has been teaching yoga for over 20 years, and practicing as a yoga therapist and physiotherapist just as long.
In integrating scientific research and knowledge from other disciplines
Yoga has a lot going for it. It’s an ideal practice to soothe an overactive nervous system. It’s history and wisdom is rich, varied and fascinating. We love integrating the best of that ancient wisdom and modern science together in a way that serves your intellectual mind, just as much as your inspired heart.
In creating a supportive, long term community
We run a small, intimate yoga studio where you’ll never get lost in the crowd. Each training forms an intimate community within itself, however after graduation you become a part of our wider network of teachers, and alumni who continue to engage and support each other years after the training finishes.
