"I am so enjoying working my through this program. Jennifer's teaching style is open, approachable, engaging and so very informative. With each segment, my knowledge of the methodology and history behind yin yoga and mindfulness deepens and grows. And what a wonderful service to provide this information in an online format, opening up the learning to those of us who are unable to attend a regular course. I would suggest her training wholeheartedly."

"I absolutely loved Jennifer's course! Her approach to Yin was beautiful and she provided more information than I expected to receive. Not only that but her suggestions for what to take a deeper look into to expand the practice were inspirational. I am happy that continued access to the course is available since it was overflowing with details. I can only imagine how reviewing it again in the coming weeks and months will only strengthen my practice and teachings. One of the things I appreciated most about the course is how many variations Jennifer provided for each pose. It will really come in handy since my students are mostly beginner and less flexible. It will allow me to teach in a way that is accessible to all levels, which will certainly help me feel more confident as a teacher. If you are considering learning Yin, I highly recommend you start with this. Jennifer is an incredible teacher and I am so grateful I came across her course!"

"I am thrilled with the quality of the materials and the delivery of the videos. Jennifer’s teachings are clear and balanced and I think that this teaching has come to me at the ‘just the right time’. Loving every second and so grateful to work at my own pace. Thank you for putting this course together."

The visuals and sound are clear and Jennifer executes each lesson in a relaxed,aligned and easy to follow way. Yes, I recommend this course!"

"I liked the different postures demonstrated, along with the corresponding props that went with them. I also liked learning about the meridians and their corresponding organs. After Mindful Yin Yoga Online I’m better at teaching yin, recommending props for class, and I’m better at personal practice and meditation. I would recommend this course. It teaches yin thoroughly and can be used as continuing education credits for the yoga alliance."

I specifically liked the information about Meridians. I benefited from Mindful Yin Yoga Online because I could take the training at my pace, and watch the video as many times as I wanted until I fully understood it. I would recommend this course because it helps to understand meridians and how Yin Yoga can benefit mental health. I look forward to joining a retreat training in the future!

This course was clearly presented, had a nice combination of audio, visual and text material. I benefitted from the course. It is very accessible.

"I thought Jennifer's way of presenting was so precise and clear it was easy to follow and actually retain the knowledge. I loved her videos. I had never done an online training certification and wasn't sure how it would work but I actually love that I can go back and watch the videos at any time to review. I think I really benefited from the history of yin yoga as Jennifer explained it as well. And adding the meridians tied it all together for me in a way that made me fall in love with it. I would definitely recommend this course! I will continue to follow Jennifer and her videos and special classes. I love her teaching style. Her guided meditations really resonate with me. Not forcing or manipulating the breath but spending time exploring it and studying it was really helpful for me."

"Before signing up I wasn’t sure of the scope of material presented. But I have absolutely benefitted from Mindful Yin Yoga Online. It has renewed my interest in yin and has contributed to the yin classes that I teach. The yin classes and meditation were wonderful and I loved the presentations. I would recommend this course. It gives a thorough background for a yin practice."

Jennifer has really done an outstanding job of making this engaging and informative at the same time. It is one of the best overview’s of yoga & yin history that I have encountered. Thanks for making this available online!

I have greatly enjoyed my weeks of training with you. I remember the excitement from when I signed up - and that excitement held throughout the entirety of this training. I have grown confident in my knowledge of the meridian systems - even finding a few tender acupressure points on my husband, thanks to you!!! Yin yoga, is certainly a love of mine, and has taken my teaching and practices to an entirely new level. I have learnt so much, about myself, the body! - ITS ALL SO AWESOME! Thank you for all that you have shared with me, and many others throughout this training! And for starting my Yin Yoga journey!!!

    What is yin yoga?
    Yin Yoga is a very gentle style of yoga practice that puts pressure on the connective tissues of the body in order to open restrictions physically and energetically. Most postures are done on the floor and are held for a longer period of time, sometimes using props such as blankets. These postures encourage more flexibility and encourage the energetic meridians to open.
