What Is Trauma-Informed Yin Yoga?

Trauma-informed yin yoga is an approach that considers how trauma can affect individuals, aiming to foster a safe and supportive setting for healing and self-discovery.

In this method of yin yoga, instructors and guides are trained to be sensitive to potential trauma that participants might have faced—be it physical, emotional, or psychological.

Being a well-informed trauma-sensitive yin yoga instructor entails the ability to assess situations where a student may be triggered or feel dysregulated and having a plan to help regulate and support the student appropriately.

Together we're healing the world, one soul at a time.

Unlock profound healing and embrace tranquility through my exclusive Soulful Yin Yoga Teacher Training program, meticulously designed to prioritize trauma sensitivity and emotional healing.

Throughout this comprehensive training, we'll delve into the nuances of trauma-informed teaching, empowering you to create a safe and nurturing space for your students.

Graduate Reviews

"Annie’s Trauma informed yin training integrates many aspects to provide you with all the necessary tools to start teaching classes that not only include intelligent sequencing, but also connect with your students on a deeper emotional level. The training has been fundamental to my teaching approach, and I have applied the key learnings not only to my yin classes but also across my vinyasa and prenatal offerings."

- Katey (South Africa)

"Annie has an incredible gift to be able to convey deeply layered concepts, theories and ideologies in a relaxed conversational way. Despite being online the training was delivered in a nourishing environment and covered a range of theory in a non dogmatic way."

- Alicia (Australia)

"I have some students that just after a few sessions of Soulful Yin Yoga are able to unblock deep emotional obstacles and also initiate an awareness of their spiritual path and to be honest so did I whilst in the training with Annie. It is impossible not to feel something so transformative during her training and she is aware of this and very much prepared to accompany the journey of the student/yogi and teacher to be."

- Giorgiana (Dubai)

"I thoroughly enjoyed the yin yoga training and so did my friend Rasha who did it with me. We learned so much about fascia and meridians which was new to us. I did recommend this to my friend and will keep recommending it to others. It’s super valuable for experienced and non yoga teachers." 

- Farah (Kuwait)

“I really enjoyed being able to participate in a world class training from the comfort of my own home. Annie is professional and a clear teacher, capable of transmitting deep philosophies with a light heartedness. Her broad knowledge and openness to a variety of traditions really made this training exceptional for me. I would recommend this training to anyone hoping to further their yoga education.” 

Katie (France)

"I can’t recommend enough Annie's teacher training to yin teachers. As a big fan of yin classes, I can see the difference between a regular class and one marked by the teachings of Annie. It has allowed me to teach rich classes on the physical, mental, emotional as well as spiritual levels. It has empowered me to be a good transmitter of the yin magic."

- Claire (France)
