100hr Yin Yoga & Chinese Meridians Teacher Training
ABOUT THE TRAINING
Yin Yoga is a very simple practice, on the surface. From the view of the casual observer, it may seem as if there’s not much going on, but from the practitioner’s point of view there is something deeply meaningful occurring on every level of experience.
Yin Yoga is not as much a style of Yoga as it is a way of practice. Many of the postures used are identical to postures in other, more active styles of yoga, but the approach is that of calm surrender and patient stillness. Within this stillness, the practitioner has the opportunity to observe experience, without interfering, in order to understand what’s teaming beneath the surface of ordinary awareness.
The Yin Yoga Teacher Training is a comprehensive program that will teach you not only the fundamentals of teaching Yin Yoga, from the gross to the subtle, but to also hold space and lead students into a deeper relationship with themselves.

TEACHER TRAINER ADAM STONEBRAKER
E-RYT500, MA, Contemplative Yogi
Adam has been an unofficial student of contemplation and the mysteries of life since he can remember, but his formal training began around 20 years ago.
His initial meditation training was through a professor at Xavier University who trained in the Zen style of meditation of shikantaza. Adam later studied in Theravada and other Mahayana schools as well. Today his practice consists of both traditional Buddhist meditation techniques taught by the Buddha himself as well as Mahayana devotional practices taught to him by his teachers Kittisaro and Thanisarra.
Adam’s yoga practice is informed by his primary teachers, Sarah & Ty Powers, who have endorsed him to teach Insight Yoga. He have also studied extensively with Paul & Suzie Grilley, Joe Barnett, and Maty Ezraty, as well as many others.
In May of 2019, Adam earned an MA in the unique and highly regarded Mindfulness Studies Program at Lesley University in Cambridge Massachusetts.
For the past 6 years Adam has offered Yin Yoga teacher trainings, meditation, mindfulness, and yoga workshops, mentorship, and retreats, internationally.
The yoga teacher training will be held in the remote, tropical paradise location of Koh Samui, Thailand. This tranquil location is the ideal spot to immerse yourself fully into the training without any distractions and be supported by like-minded trainees.
Our home for the training, Vikasa Yoga Retreat Hotel is located on the edge of the lush jungle where the beach meets the ocean. Offering a well developed yoga teacher training facility with beautiful yoga shalas, organic restaurant, swimming pool, spa, gym, and a variety of unique room styles.
