Details of the training

The Yin Yoga teacher training consists of 7 weekends in the studio en 7 online days.

Each weekend consists of a Saturday and Sunday where we will meet in the studio.
The ‘third’ day is fully online – on demand. This third online day you will follow in your own time in between the weekends.

In the online modules you receive high quality on-demand videos with theory and practices. These days are designed to form a full training day. However, you have the flexibility to follow this part of the training the way that suits you best, and multiple times if you wish. This online modules are mandatory, and an important part of your training.

The weekends in the studio give us the opportunity to go deeper into the practice and the teaching of yin yoga itself, integrating the theory you have learned online.

The in-person training weekends are not every week, so there will be a few weeks in between. This gives you the time to study the theory and integrate what you’ve learned in the practice. If  you spend around 2 hours per week on the online content you should easily be on track.

This set-up makes the training very flexible and suited for a busy lifestyle.
Moreover, you will have sufficient time for integration and developing your own practice and teaching skills.

Yin yoga is a science of body-mind. As a health-based practice, Yin yoga integrates fully the physical as well as the psychological effects of the practice: balm for the nervous system, suppleness in body, clarity of mind.

In this training we will cover:

  • Yin yoga poses
  • Counterposes/rebound effect
  • Qualities and effects of Yin
  • History of Yin/Taoism
  • TCM/YinYang
  • Fascia and stretching
  • General Yin anatomy

Meditation and mindfulness are intertwined. We will practice the ancient Buddhist meditation of breath awareness, concentration meditation and open awareness. We will cultivate stillness by practicing and learning how to deal with obstacles we come across.

In this training we will cover:

  • Background of meditation
  • Theory of meditation
  • Practice of meditation
  • Different kinds of meditation
  • Obstacles we can encounter

Mindfulness develops our compassion and knowledge of the way we are driven by our thinking. Non-judgmental and open-minded we learn to stay with our experience, exactly how it is. Mindfulness is deepening our self-knowledge enormously.

In this training we will cover:

  • Theory of mindfulness
  • Practice of Mindfulness
  • Nervous system
  • Stress response
  • Relaxation response

Our breath is a bridge as well as a tool – between out conscious and unconscious mind. Regulated by our nervous system and informed by events that are happening inside and outside of us. Breath is always there: in yin practice, our mindfulness/meditation practice as well on its own.

In this training we will cover:

  • Different breathing exercises (pranayamas)
  • Energizing vs calming effects
  • The workings of our respiratory system
  • Stress and the connection with breath

Teaching what we have experienced and appreciated ourselves is a wonderful thing.

This yin yoga teacher training prepares you to be able to teach a yin class and encourages you to develop as a teacher. We will look from a standpoint of positivity, truthfulness and respect. The aim is that you start to recognise and feel the teacher you are within.

  • The integration of mindfulness, meditation and breathing exercises with Yin
  • Finding your personal qualities as a yoga teacher
  • How your own practice and growth is supporting you being a yoga teacher

Want to learn more about the training in person?
Please join one of the free introduction sessions with Eva in the studio » Saturday 7 September or Saturday 12 October from 10.00 till 11.00 h.

After this training, will I be ready to start as a yoga teacher?
When you’ve completed this training and have received the TULA certificate we trust you to be a capable yoga teacher. You’ve learned all the basic principles to provide a wonderful class, so you’re ready to teach. However, if this is your first training you will notice that there’s so much more to learn that doesn’t fit into one 200hour training. Therefore you can see your first training as a strong foundation to build on.

How many training days may be missed?
Of course we prefer you don’t miss a day, but if it happens you may miss two training days. When you miss more you can choose to book private yoga classes with the lead trainers. When you’ve missed to many days you can’t receive a certificate.

How much study time can I expect?
Besides the training days and joining yoga classes you may expect about 2 hours of studying per week.

I don’t think I want to become a yoga teacher, is that okay?
It certainly is. Usually halve of the participants join this training to strengthen and deepen their own practice. That’s totally fine. It will give you great personal insights as well, besides all the yoga information.

How can I know if this yoga teacher training is right for me?
We always advise to join one of the free introduction sessions at TULA, but also at other yoga studios. It’s very important that you feel a connection with the teacher(s) and the studio. If the feeling is not right you won’t enjoy the full potential of the training. We wrote a blog article about choosing the right yoga teacher training (in Dutch) that might be helpful > blog

Eva created this 200 hours Teacher Training in such a way that it gives you frequent training weekends, but also time to digest the things you learned. In between every training weekend you’ll have two or three weeks to practice what you’ve learned and study for the upcoming weekend.

Besides the training days you will need to make time to practice and study (homework)

Benefits of Yin Yoga in your daily life

Yin Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation are inseparable and are excellent tools which can help us to stay here and now and reduce the stress response.

When you stay longer in a Yin pose, you create space where you can recognise your reactive thinking patterns, let them be and investigate them with loving kindness and self-compassion. You can see your thoughts and emotions as waves in the ocean of your consciousness. It helps you to get out of the vicious circle of repetitive thinking and to find peace again.

Yin Yoga is a slow-paced approach practice where poses are held for a longer period of time in a relaxed way, up to 5 minutes or more. The practice requires little muscle engagement, which helps develop physical relaxation and flexibility. The real challenge of Yin Yoga lies in the ability to remain still and stay mindful and present with what comes up during the poses.

Yin Yoga is a method that teaches you to let go and surrender, to slow down and stop identifying with the streams of thoughts and emotions, cultivating a deeper state of relaxation.

Yin yoga is helping us physically, mentally as well as emotionally to stay grounded, healthy and experience real restfulness. In a Yin yoga class, all these qualities are practiced.

Physically we open our body specifically on the level of connective tissue, our ‘Yin tissue’. By applying gentle stretch we keep our joints, bones and connective tissue healthy and resilient.

Also we train our nervous system to release and move into a rest and digest mode. Our mind has the opportunity to calm and switch to a broader awareness. We start to feel the more subtle energetic processes in ourselves, how the connection of our mind with our body works and the other way around. It is an exploration of silence and stillness, we practice the art of resting and pausing.

Eva de Hoijer

We proudly present the lead teacher of this Yin Yoga Teacher Training, Eva de Hoijer.

“Hi, my name is Eva and my passion is to introduce as many people as possible to all the good that yoga can bring.

Yoga and meditation came on my path when I went out into the world after my studies. In India I did my first yoga pose and after that, yoga never left my life again. It changed the way I felt about myself and gave me the tools to be able to cope with deeper seated tensions.

After many years of traveling, I returned to the Netherlands and worked in the business world for many years. At the same time, my yoga practice and my curiosity about the whole philosophy and theory of yoga deepened enormously. Yoga has been a part of my life for 20 years now and has a great influence on how I feel and live.

I have studied many forms of yoga and have arrived at my great loves: Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Mindfulness and Meditation. Besides this I’m also a dedicated practitioner of Vinyasa yoga. I have been practicing, teaching and training for years now and have owned a yoga studio as well.

I am fascinated by the connection of body and mind and the interaction between them. My approach is modern, light, positive and based on the latest scientific research. I feel the learning never stops!

My passion is to introduce people on a deeper level to all the benefits that yoga, mindfulness and meditation bring. To experience that regular practice brings lasting change for the good, both at a personal level as well in connection with the world around us.

My classes and trainings are a place where you are invited to work on the health of your body and mind through yoga.

I look forward to meeting you!”


Eva is truly a wonderful person, with a love for what she does and a lot of knowledge.
A true gem!
