35 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training
35 Hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training
Widen the scope of your yoga practice with our 35-hour yin yoga teacher training. Designed for students and teachers alike, you’ll spend two weekends learning foundational yin yoga poses, contemplative meditation practices and energy-balancing techniques using the principles of yin yoga.
Yin yoga helps us to slow down and settle in
In a world whose ethos is “harder, better, faster, stronger,” yin yoga is sort of countercultural. A yin yoga practice offers us a rare chance to slow down, settle in and tune our awareness toward our innate quietness.
Inspired by the teachings of hatha yoga, Taoism and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), yin yoga is a tender complement to a stressful, active lifestyle. During a yin yoga class, we hold floor postures for several minutes each. This applies a safe but intense stretch to our bodies’ connective tissue like fascia. Yin yoga poses also influence your body’s energy, specifically the meridians described by TCM.
Simpler sequences plus longer holds allow us to stay still and experience the profound benefits of deep relaxation. Yin yoga is by no means easy. In fact, pausing may feel quite intense.
Your trainer Stacey Bell has more than 18 years of experience guiding students into a quieter, unencumbered state of being. As a yoga teacher, Alexander Technique facilitator and Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, Stacey has spent years refining her skill set to become a trusted yin yoga expert.
In Stacey’s yin yoga training, you can expect to:
- Study and learn the physiological effect of yin yoga: fascia, connective tissue, and joint health
- Learn teaching methodology to sequence a yin yoga class with safe, smooth transitions
- Relate core concepts of TCM and meridians to the yin yoga practice.
- Practice mindfulness and breathing techniques.
Our training is approved by the Yoga Alliance. If you are a certified yoga teacher, you are eligible to receive 35 hours of continuing education credit.

About Stacey Bell:
Stacey Bell is an alignment-based yoga instructor, Alexander technique facilitator and Biodynamic Craniosacral therapist with more than 25 years of experience in the wellness field. 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. Specializing in musculoskeletal issues, she helps people alleviate the accumulated effects of tension on their body due to mechanical misuse. She offers customized tools including therapeutic yoga, breathing techniques, meditation and Craniosacral therapy to help students mitigate the impact of stress on their nervous system. Her warmth, knowledge and authenticity ease clients into a place of inner calm and wholeness.
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.
