Yin Yoga Teacher Training Certification Courses

The only official Yin Yoga Certification Courses taught by Paulie Zink the founder of Yin Yoga

Learn to teach the art of Yin Yoga 
as it is intended to be taught

The 100 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training Certification course is presented in two separate one week long sessions: Session 1 and Session 2 (See Yin yoga schedule below)

Participants must attend both session 1 and session 2 to qualify for certification. Participants receive 4o hours class time credit for each week session. The balance of 20 hours needed for a total of 100 hours is earned through reading and writing assignment(s). A book outline is required to receive certification (see suggested reading for more information). Hours earned from attending other Yin yoga workshops taught by Paulie are also applicable to the total hours. Students must have received a certificate of completion for weekend workshops for those hours to qualify.

Sessions may be attended out of sequence 
and individual sessions may be attended at any combination of locations.

Students may accrue an additional 100 hours of extra credit 
to earn a total of 200 hours (at no additional charge- except for other workshops attended).

Additional hours are earned through a combination of:

*Yin yoga teaching experience (minimum 10 hours required with a maximum 40 hours allowed)

*Reading and writing assignments

*Hours accrued from attending other Yin yoga workshops taught by Paulie Zink (optional)

Advanced Training Session 3 is open only to students who have completed both Session 1 and Session 2.

Methods to increase range of motion, height and fluidity for a variety of kicking angles, and how to make stances lower and easier to hold and transitions from stance to stance smoother.


Learn how to roll with the punches! This will include ways to enhance agility and efficiency for ground rolling in all directions and for gracefully and quickly getting back on your feet.


Improving flexibility reduces the potential for pulling muscles during workouts and sparing. We will also cover conditioning exercises for tempering the bones and strengthening the joints.


Drills for strikes, circular chops, and punches, plus exercises for torso rotation, wrist flexibility, and relaxing the neck and shoulder muscles.

Maria, I want to tell you how much I enjoyed your 5 elements meditations in Paulie’s workshop at Kripalu~ beautiful as well as powerful~ I felt my energy flow and shift~ I could feel each one of the elements through my senses~ and Paulie’s guidance outside in the beauty of nature~ I never felt so present and alive.

Dear Paulie and Maria,
Thank you both so much for  a wonderful Yin Yoga Teacher Certification course. Maria, the meditations you developed and all you do for the website and planning for Paulie’s teaching are much appreciated so he can be free to do what he does best. Paulie, this training has been the most freeing, pleasant, fun, and experiential training I have ever taken. I learned so much from not only the art that you so brilliantly teach, but I learned as much by just being with such a genuine, caring and wonderful human being as you. I love the art of Yin yoga that you teach and have already been sharing it with my students. I have had wonderful feedback and enjoyed watching my students become playful as they attempt to embody the animals and then feel the flows. Paulie, you are not only a master in the art of Yin and Yang Yoga, you are also a master at passing it on to others in the kindest and most generous way. Thank you so very much.
