Required Books

What is the refund policy?

See our Satya Guarantee. This guarantee applies ONLY to courses taught directly by White Crow Yoga and does not apply to courses taught by Affiliate Schools or live courses.

Why is a year of yoga practice recommended before taking this workshop?

While we welcome everyone to the workshop, new yogis may have a difficult time staying in long-held poses, which may lead to frustration or excessive fidgeting. If you are willing to come out of a pose and rest when needed, you will do fine with this workshop, even without a year of prior practice.

Is the Yin Yoga workshop for teachers only?

No; it is for everyone. While we do offer Yoga Alliance CECs for taking this workshop, students and teachers alike are welcome to attend.  Students will find it of great benefit to gain a deeper knowledge of Yin Yoga or start a home Yin Yoga practice.

What books or materials do I need for Yin Yoga Training?

We recommend reading Yin Yoga: Principles and Practices by Paul Grilley.  Another highly recommended book is by Bernie Clark: The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga. In some places, the authors have different views, but it is helpful to review studies from different viewpoints and find what resonates with you. What we teach in Thirumoolar’s is more closely aligned with Paul’s teachings, but Bernie has wonderful insight, as well.

For props, you might need a mat, blocks, a blanket, or any props you normally use for class. There are no special props required, and many people teach without props.

When will the next Yin Yoga training be offered?

You may start your remote (online) yin yoga training anytime. We do not currently have a live training scheduled.
