Each week a new set of recordings of lecture sessions will be released.

The course has been carefully thought through and adapted to an online format so that you can acquire a high level of skills to enable you to teach and practice Yin Yoga with greater confidence immediately upon graduating.
Read more testimonials here from Sarah’s recent online teacher training
“I enjoyed your face to face trainings for levels 1 and 2…..happy memories of walking meditation in Regents Park but your transition to online is inspirational. For some reason it feels so much more intimate, love the lectures and practicum, being able to pause and rewind is such a bonus. The trainings feel really special for me and for that I am incredibly grateful, thank you Sarah Lo so very much. 🙏”
“Having attended your level 1, 2 & 3 face to face, assisted L1 & L2 face to face and now having assisted your L1 & L2 online and currently attending Level 3 online I have to say that in many ways the student is getting more! I initially resisted online learning because I didn’t think the quality could compete with face to face but you were one of the teachers who took their time to get it right before launching. I’ve watched you develop your trainings (as a receiver and behind the scenes) and I have to congratulate you because I really do feel I am getting more time to digest the lectures, I can practice the practicums multiple times, there is less opportunity to go off track as you are focused on the subject in hand and in the live sessions we still get the opportunity to do all the breakouts, build a community and cover the important bits that would have been lost. I also like how you give us a timeframe to work to so that we can keep on track and not fall behind – I know some trainings that allow a loose schedule and many of my peers end up not finishing because they lose motivation. Honestly I am so blessed to be your student. Thank you for all the effort, time and expertise you offer us with care and compassion.”
