This is a training that will take you on a journey within yourself. Yin Yoga invites us to observe, listen and accept. Learning to transmit these techniques to others, finding space for them to relax and open up, is a real joy.
This training is taught in English, with discussions also held in French. Louise and her team all speak fluent French. All homework/exams and teaching can be done in either language.

This Yoga Alliance International training is open to Yoga teachers, and those who wish to deepen their practice and knowledge.
Only 12 places available, this is a very popular training.
Our trainings are all accredited by Yoga Alliance International.
Teaching practice begins on day one, you’ll learn more than “just” how to teach poses. We’ll help you discover your inspiration for a natural and authentic way of teaching that suits you. We follow a Traditional Chinese Medicine approach in our course.
New in 2024, we’re changing format to offer you more connection and opportunities to dive deep into the universe of Yoga, learn, and bond with other participants. This course will be held as an intensive week in Normandy in our Retreat Space (more info below).
Our teaching style is passionate, curiosity-focused, accessible and non-judgemental. We draw on our years of experience to enable you to teach the people in front of you, adapting to their needs. We hope to light the flame of inspiration, education and motivation in you, to make your own choices as teachers and students and to encourage your own students to walk their own path of practice.

The Retreat Space is currently undergoing renovations and we are creating the website as you read this. Photos and information will come very soon (and be sent to training participants!).
This new format is designed to offer you more opportunities to dive deep into the universe of Yoga, learn, teach, create, rest, play and form more profound and meaningful connections with other participants and teachers.
Here, you will be accommodated in our quiet, beautiful house in a peaceful village just over 2 hours from Paris. Your meals will be prepared (with love) for you: healthy, delicious, and gourmet recipes that bring people together around the table to share, connect and enjoy the food, and the company. Our country garden is accessible to you for a quiet time out, a reconnection with Nature, evenings around the fire pit, star-gazing, sun-bathing (weather permitted!)…
We really believe that this addition to our trainings will take your experience to the next level. Providing you with time, space and atmosphere to build in confidence, find your teaching style, rest your mind and body and, so important, create connection with the other participants and Nature around us.
A regular practice of Yoga and the desire to deepen your practice and understanding of Yin, and of yourself.
