KIND WORDS FROM OUR 50 HOURS GRADS
"Just completed my 50-hour Yin training with Kylie at Omology. I have to say it was a well-balanced training between theory and practical. The training also provides experiential learning through the Yin sessions with Kylie and our self-practice videos which I truly appreciate. Nothing better than to experience a quality Yin class. Kylie is also a very passionate teacher that willingly shares her knowledge with us. I'm glad I hit the send button for my application."

Kylie is the owner and founder of Omology Yoga. Hailing from a background of high-impact sport + Vinyasa Yoga she nearly walked out of her first yin Yoga class thinking "nope, definitely not for me".
It was not until years later that she experienced + learned the energetic + emotional benefits of yin Yoga which, she credits as the entry-point to her meditation practice.
So, suffice it to say that Kylie is definitely empathetic to those who find the practice of yin a little slow, maybe even boring + although yin yoga will never be a heart-pumping or thrilling practice, she hopes to inspire students through her mindfully crafted sequences + soothing playlists to journey inward + develop a soulfully-empowered Yin practice +/or teaching career.

ANATOMY OF A YIN PRACTICE

+ Yang Yoga vs. Yin Yoga: important differences between passive + active postures
+ Yang tissues vs. Yin tissues

+ incorporating MFR into the yin practice
+ dysfunctions, movement limitations, common ailments, injury prevention
+ pregnancy + yin yoga
Unique to our training program is an additional training in Yoga Nidra ("Yogic Sleep") meditation. Yoga Nidra is a conscious state between waking and sleeping that is induced via a guided meditation. It is practiced laying down + is known for relieving stress, improving sleep + reducing anxiety.
For obvious reasons, this relaxation is verrrrry complementary to the yin Yoga practice. Students graduating from our 50 Hours program will be able to script + conduct full Yoga Nidra meditations.
+ 3x 30-minute guided audio Yoga Nidra practices
+ the essential elements of a Yoga Nidra meditation
