I began my yoga practice in 1995 in the Ashtanga yoga tradition, after suffering an injury while training for a marathon. That injury, unbeknownst at the time, was a gift that led me to the path of Yoga. In 2005, I met my primary teacher Yoganand Michael Carroll and completed the Pranakryia Yoga Teacher training. I have been teaching classes and private yoga for over 12 years, and am continually amazed at the transformative aspects of the Practice. I believe that with patience, awareness, breath, and sincerity that each asana becomes an invitation to know who we Truly are.I am deeply grateful for my teachers who have always guided me back to myself-to find the answers within- and continue to support me on this incredible journey: My primary teacher Yoganand Michael Carroll, Rupert Spira, Connie Beaudoin, Paul Hedderman and Adyashanti.Facebook: https://facebook.com/ericableznakmusingsandmovement

Yin Yoga 15 Hour Teacher Training and Immersion

RaeAnn Banker Location: Doylestown

Upcoming dates TBA!


Yin Yoga is a quiet and serene practice, accessible for all levels. Poses are passive and long-held, supported by a meditative focus which awakens a brilliant state of health. The practice of Yin Yoga is a perfect complement to Yang (vinyasa) Yoga. This practice derives much of its wisdom from Traditional Chinese Medicine; incorporating the meridians in order to direct the flow of prana to specific organs systems.
Would you like to share this deep, healing practice with your students, or deepen your personal understanding and practice (or both!)? Join RaeAnn Banker to explore the beauty and healing power of Yin Yoga. You’ll leave with a foundational understanding of the postures and meridian theory of Yin Yoga, and 10 class sequences for your students or for your own use in practice. Certified yoga teachers will receive 15 CE Hours. Open to teachers or interested students with some background in Yin Yoga.
RaeAnn has been a full-time yoga teacher since 2001, and has led 200 and 500 Hr Training Programs at River Yoga. She is certified in Yin Yoga, to which she brings her own blend of experience, humor and practical wisdom. She is registered with Yoga Alliance at the E-500 level, their highest level of certification.
