35 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training
Broaden the scope of your yoga practice with our 35-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training. Designed for students and teachers alike, you’ll spend two, immersive weekends exploring the fundamentals of this healing, re-balancing, and contemplative discipline. Yin Yoga is a welcome complement to a dynamic Yang practice—and an active (stressful) life.
YIN YOGA HELPS YOU SETTLE IN…
Developing a Yin Yoga practice offers a rare opportunity to slow down, settle in and attune to your innate quietude. Yin Yoga blends the wisdom traditions of Hatha Yoga and Taoism, providing an enriching pathway to understand health and wellness from the perspective of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM).
Yin methodology invites you to passively hold a shape (with support) and place safe, but deliberate tension on a targeted area, for a sustained period of time. This action stretches the deeper connective tissues of the body improving joint mobility and overall flexibility. In addition, the active stretch creates a tensile pull on the meridian channels to move chi (energy) more efficiently through the subtle body anatomy. As a result, the organ systems of the body are nourished on the physical and energetic levels, producing mental calm and a receptive heart.
Stacey Bell, a lead trainer for Powerflow Yoga, has over 25 years of experience guiding her students and clients into a state of presence that is quiet, spacious and unencumbered. She has refined her energetic skills through countless hours as a yoga teacher, Alexander Technique instructor and as a Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist. Stacey is a devoted student of Sarah Powers and Powers’ Insight Yoga trainings has shaped Stacey’s approach to teaching Yin Yoga.

She is the director of the 200-hour vinyasa and 35-hour yin yoga teacher trainings at Powerflow Yoga and is the founder of Yogabell Wellness.
Whether in group classes or private classes, Stacey’s students learn to inhabit their bodies with functionality and grace.

Stacey’s love of mind-body modalities began with a 600-hour training of the Alexander Technique. She then completed her foundation yoga teacher training at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health with subsequent study and exploration in Raja Yoga with teachers Yoganand Michael Carroll and Stephen Cope. Stacey has since expanded these principles with studies in the methodology of vinyasa, yin and restorative yoga. Her teaching is greatly influenced by the devout study of the Iyengar method with her primary teachers, Mary Sinclair and Lisa Rotell. Stacey also did a deep dive into a 900-hour Craniosacral Therapy training through Franklyn Sills’ Karuna Institute. She did a post-certification study of Energetic Stillness with Mike Boxhall; Embryological study with Jaap Van de Waal, MD; and Embryological applications with Katherine Ukleja, DO.
Along the way, Stacey has been influenced by renowned teachers including Alan Finger, Dharma Mittra, Sarah Powers, Sharon Salzberg, Irene Dowd, Erich Schiffman, Maty Ezraty and more.
Stacey owned and operated two successful yoga studios: Mindful Movement in Manhattan and Yoga Samadhi in Greenwich, CT. She is featured in Time Out and Nickelodeon magazines and the Greenwich Times.
