Teacher Training & Ongoing Studies

Hours: Fri 6-9 pm, Sat and Sun 1 – 7 pm.

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.

Cost: $290 early bird; $315 after.

RaeAnn gave herself yoga classes as a birthday present when she was 42. It turned out to be the best birthday present ever—she fell in love with yoga and it has changed her life. RaeAnn began teaching after completing two levels of Iyengar teacher’s training at The Yoga Institute of Miami under Bobbi Goldin. RaeAnn loved teaching, but felt a need to deepen her practice. She found what she was looking for when she met Parvathi Nanda Nath, of Saraswati River Yoga in 2000. RaeAnn continues to study with Parvathi, focusing on yogic philosophy, meditation, and asana practice.

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.
