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.

This 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.

The training will be 60hrs of immersion in beautiful Bali with the lead trainer and 40hrs of of pre-assignments to be done prior to arrival.

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.

“Adam’s gentle intensity enables him to share ideas and offer direction in a way that is so accessible and yet so powerful, whether he’s cueing an asana or sharing the history of Yin yoga or leading meditation. Everything and everyone is connected, and everything and everyone is important. Adam radiates love.”
Niki Pappas, Yoga Teacher/Mind-Body Healer
Adam is a wonderful yoga teacher. He embodies the yin yoga philosophy, and has a plethora of experience in the practice of yin yoga and meditation that he shares so selflessly. Adam is someone who is so devoted to learning about all aspects of yin yoga. Having him guide our teacher training meant that we all left with so much new knowledge and inspiration for our personal practice, as well as for our yoga classes.”

LOCATION, BALI

The training will be held in the remote, peaceful paradise location of Balian Beach in West Bali. This tranquil location has the “old world” feel of Bali before it became popular with tourism. Pondok Pitaya Hotel is located on the edge of a natural volcanic black & gold-glittered sand beach surrounded by beautiful cliffs. The expansive beach is safe and perfect for long walks during sunset or sunrise.

We chose this location as the spot for our Yoga Trainings in Bali 5 years ago for it’s magical healing powers and it’s connection to nature away from outside distractions. You will be able to completely immerse yourself in the training and be supported by like-minded trainees.
