Transformative Online Yin Yoga Foundations Teacher Training

In this specialty online yin yoga teacher training course, you will learn the what’s, why’s and how’s of Yin Yoga. You will discover that not only what you practice is important, but how you practice it is even more so. You will experience that you do not have to exert yourself in a Yin Yoga practice; instead, you will learn to relax and let gravity do the job for you. This relaxes your muscles and applies a moderate amount of stress to the deepest layers of connective tissues- tendons, fascia, and ligaments at the same time. The result is an overall improvement in the health and mobility of joints.A frequently overlooked aspect is the imbalance of a daily, active/yang style of yoga. We firmly believe that balance is key for any area of life. This 50-hour Online Yin Yoga Foundations Teacher Training Course is the perfect place to start integrating a slower and deeper practice in your day-to-day life. The course provides you with in-depth knowledge, tools and resources to bring balance into your yoga practice and also start teaching it to others. What makes this course stand out, is its functional approach to yoga asanas; the practices respect and accommodate the skeletal variation and uniqueness of each and every practitioner.

This yin yoga training online format allows you to study, learn and practice at your own rhythm and pace from the comfort of your home.

If you love the benefits of the yin yoga practice in your body and mind, and are ready to take it to next level, this is the perfect start for you!

  • Who are your teachers for this course?
    Eli Aguilar

    Co-Founder of Sampoorna Online Academy and Sampoorna Yoga Costa Rica Programs Director

    Eli has been passionate about exercising, teaching and healthy lifestyle most of her life, which led her to study Clinical Psychology. While seen patients and teaching workshops, she realized that in order to achieve an optimum state of well-being, a more holistic approach is required, and she went on to become a Pilates Instructor, Reiki Master and Health Coach.

    In her pursuit for a deeper understanding of the body and its functionality, she moved from Costa Rica –her homeland- to New York to expand her studies in Pilates. Once in USA, she reconnected with her personal yoga practice that ignited a desire to come to India, not only to study how to teach yoga but also how to live a more fulfilling life.

    Eli traveled to India in 2014 and joined Sampoorna Yoga as a facilitator of the 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Course. That experience was the non-return point. She felt in love with India and its culture, and she found her passion: teaching. In Sampoorna Yoga, she has taught almost all the topics of the syllabus and she is particularly passionate about functional anatomy, how different bodies express the asanas in different ways, and she is very keen on respecting everyone’s unique body and practice.

    Today, she is a key member of the Sampoorna Yoga family. Along with Deepak, she has co-founded Sampoorna Yoga Costa Rica, while she continues teaching in English and Spanish courses, developing curriculum and content for new courses, managing and teaching Yin Yoga training courses, handling the online education platform, and overseeing different management responsibilities.

    Yoga has changed her life, and she has made yoga her lifestyle.
