It will build upon previous training and go deeper into the concepts of yin and your personal development as a teacher. This training includes use of myofascial release balls and the first in the world to utilise the giant ball for Yin Yoga.
Students who have completed all three levels of Sarah Lo’s Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings will receive a full 120 HOURS YIN YOGA & MINDFULNESS MEDITATION TEACHER TRAINING CERTIFICATE upon successful completion of an assignment.
