Blessings from a few of our wonderful students from past yin yoga teacher trainings

"This immersion Holistic Yin Yoga Training really took me by surprise. I thought I would be only learning, studying and practicing Yin Yoga to become more knowledgeable in this style of yoga to become a better teacher. After only 2 days here I had embodied the Yin energy and attitude.

I look forward to integrate this Being with life and teaching back home. I have arrived and I´m home. That´s what Sofia´s approach to Yin Yoga feels like when you immerse in it."

"Thank you Sofia for sharing with me that Yin Yoga is not only a style but an approach to practice.

The 2 week 100 hour Holistic Yin Yoga Teacher Training has left me with a sense of inspiration and excitement, to both teach and practice and also dive even deeper into the fascinating subject of the 5 Elements of Ayurveda and TCM. Has been a blessing. Thank you!"

Daisy Ellison


"This course brought together women from different countries and cultures to take a personal journey of discovery through the practice of Yin Yoga. The experiences were different for each of us but they wove together into a tight fabric of friendship with love at the core. Strangers connected and nurtured each other.

The environment, mat work, lectures, meals, all supported the exploration of the inner core and the deep, peaceful, feminine aspects of Yin. The course was an amzing experience and highly recommend it. I feel blessed to have shared this 2 weeks with Sofia, Emily and the other women in the course. With love,"
