Establish a solid, well-rounded foundation to your own practice and professional offering as a modern yoga teacher.
Yin yoga has been steadily growing in stature and popularity in recent times. It is a complementary practice that helps us to decompress from our busy lives. It’s valued for the slow pace of movement, the necessary self-inquiry, and meditative nature. All this lends itself to the change of pace most people need in the busyness of modern life.
Your education will be guided by our founder Duncan Peak (Pioneer of Modern Yoga in Australia) and supported by our senior teachers Troy Abraham, Gina Brescianini & Emma Burridge.
The only prerequisite for this course is that you love YIN YOGA and are curious about learning more. However the 100 accredited hours can only be counted towards RYT500 if a 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training has been completed in advance.
We’re so excited to offer this world-class Yin Yoga Teacher Training entirely online as well as in a hybrid format (combining the best of online education and in-person facilitation). This course starts on April 4th, running as an interactive training in our digital classroom for six weeks. Students have the option to complete only the 75hrs of online study or students can choose to join us for an additional 4 days of in-person facilitation at the end of the sixth week to achieve a 100hr certification.
The Yin yoga teacher training with Power Living will give you the tools and certification you need to confidently and intelligently teach yin yoga to all levels of students. Expect to learn a blend of applied anatomy physiology, as it mainly applies to the fascia (connective tissue) and how it impacts/informs movement in the body. Alongside this, you will learn basic meridian theory, Anatomy trains theory, chakra theory as it relates to yin yoga and traditional meditative practices to enhance the yin state of a student.

No, you can choose the courses that fit your life schedule, budget and specific interest. We present all of our advanced teacher training material in a modular format to make it easier for you to pick the best course and pathway for you!
All teacher trainees must complete all three courses modules outlined above. The program has been designed specifically to meet the Yoga Alliance and Yoga Australia 200-hour teacher training requirements. Missing out on a course component or not completing it in time would mean you have not completed the required number of contact hours and areas of study and will not gain full 200-hour certification.
Having 500-hour certification shows potential employers that you take your education seriously! Studying on our 500-hour pathway will provide you with opportunities to deepen your study of yoga that a well-rounded teacher needs on their CV.
Yes! Many of our 500-hour level courses require 200-hour certification as a pre-requisite but we welcome students from any yoga education training program.
Occasionally we open some of these programs up to all students, depending on the content of the course. If the course has a 200-hour prerequisite, it will be clearly noted on the website and all marketing material. And only 200-hour qualified teachers are able to gain hours of accreditation for completing the course.
Our 500-hour pathway programs require a $1,000 deposit for any programs over $1,000. All remaining course fees must be paid six weeks before the start date of the program. We don’t offer payment plans for our 500-hour programs. All programs under $1,000 require payment in full at the time of registration.
