Dive deeper into Yin Yoga

Join Rachel and Lucy for their 50 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher

Training here in Bali.

Lucy and Rachel, co-owners of The Pineapple House Bali, have teamed up with The Peaceful Warriors yoga school to share one of their biggest passions - Yin Yoga. 

 

This 50 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training is not just for those who want to teach Yin. It's for anyone who wants to learn move about and experience the subtle art of this practice.  

Maybe you’ve experienced the benefits of Yin Yoga at one of our retreats and you’d like to learn how to teach others, or perhaps you have an incline that you need more “yin” in your life, but you’re not sure how or would like to learn more. Or both?!

During the training you’ll be guided through reflective Yin Yoga, meditation and gentle breath work practices to help you truly experience what it feels like to embody “yin”. Whether you’re looking to teach others after the training or not, this training encourages you to experience the effects of the practices first to empower you to speak from your own personal experience. You’ll also come away with tools that will help you feel lighter, more energised having opened the gateway to your inner landscape.

Yin Yoga targets the deep connective tissue - fascia - and the meridians that run through it (based on 5 element and meridian theory from Traditional Chinese Medicine). The work can be subtle, but the effects , in Lucy and Rachel's experience, are profound - not only for the body but more so for your mind and overall health.

 

You'll leave this training feeling more connected, more empowered and more aware 

Rachel & Lucy invite you to take this journey with them. With a common goal and love of sharing these practices thry have created this training to serve you from the inside out.

Lucy Foster-Perkins

Lucy is the co-owner of The Pineapple House Bali with Rachel.

My journey to Yin (Yin as a yoga practice and Yin as a concept) started after I experienced adrenal fatigue in 2014. My journey from studying and practicing the more subtle practices of mindfulness, meditation, facial release and meridian-based Yin Yoga lead me back to health and offered a more intimate relationship with my body and energy.

With the increase of exhaustion in modern culture I enjoy passing on the teachings I have received on Traditional Chinese Medicine Element Theory, the subtle practices of Yin Yoga and healing methods of Ayurveda to empower others to find their own journey towards balance.

I also teaches Vinyasa Flow, Hatha and Ayurvedic practices. As an ex-professional dancer I has a solid understanding of the body, how it moves and the subtle art of listening to the messages it offers us.
