Host a Training with Sagel




Host a Yin Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation Teacher Training or Yoga Nidra Teacher Training with Sagel

If you are a studio owner and want to offer Yin Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation or Yoga Nidra classes, contact us about hosting a Yin Yoga & Mindfulness Meditation or Yoga Nidra Teacher Training with Sagel Urlacher.  The powerful and transformative Yin & Meditation practice offers your students “the other half” of their practice – bringing attention and intention not only to the hidden half of our bodies (the connective tissues) but to the often hidden half of our spirits – our Yin side.

Equal parts science and spirit, this practice unwinds tension in the body to bring long-lasting relief and health to the body’s critical “invisible half,” refreshes the mind to bring clarity and deeper understanding, and creates spaciousness in the heart to let us live and love with more ease.

Most exercise in the US, including hatha and vinyasa yoga, running, cycling, and weight training, focuses predominantly on the muscles rather than these important Yin connective tissues, so anyone participating in those “Yang” types of exercise can reap deep benefits from this complementary Yin practice.

Studio schedules offer plenty of Yang yoga classes, so this is your opportunity to bring balance to your schedule – and your students! For every Yang style class your students take, they would benefit from adding a Yin class – so you might see them twice as often, and they get the  benefit of the Yin practice helping to keep their Yang practice sustainable.

Sagel is on a mission to help yoga studios across the country bring a safe, effective, and inspiring Yin & Yoga Nidra practices to their students and we’d love to talk with you about scheduling her Teacher Trainings at your studio. If you don’t currently offer these balancing classes at your studio and/or don’t have enough trained teachers to fill the schedule, we look forward to talking with you!

“Where there is Yang, let there be Yin!”

You might consider hosting a Yin Yoga & Mediation Teacher Training if…

  • You or your staff aren’t trained to teach Yin Yoga & Meditation
  • Your studio schedule is dominated by Yang-style yoga classes and you want to expand your offerings
  • You want to offer your students the chance to serve their “hidden half” to help them balance body (and mind!) in our primarily Yang society
  • Your student base currently engages in more vigorous Yang-type exercise, such as vinyasa yoga, running, or cycling
  • You want to be ahead of the curve and bring this balancing, transformative practice into the forefront
  • Your student base has shown interest in quiet yoga practices and meditation
The perfectly ethereal and powerful Sagel Urlacher delivers one of the most extensive, accessible and enjoyable trainings that I have ever taken.  I have incorporated Yin Yoga regularly into my practice because of this profound presentation.  Not to be missed for teachers and anyone with a body and mind : )
