SHIN YOGA Teacher Training


Live the shin life...

SHIN YOGA is a beautiful combination of healing yogic and somatic practices - one of the practices we draw from is Shin Somatics -a deep somatic journey through movement and bodywork.

If you want to become a Shin Yoga teacher, you will need to complete 5 of the 7 shin somatics modules as well as additional modules if you would like to be yoga alliance registered.

If you complete all 7 modules of the Shin Somatics training you will also be able to facilitate yoga and movement therapy sessions with clients and become registered with ISMETA (an international somatics movement therapsy association)

My recent experience of the Shin Somatics Module “Body Song” has left me filled with inspiration, deep experiences and juicy enquiries. Soul Centre is the perfect location for the deep Somatic based work offered by Wilhemeena Monroe and Willa herself is a stunning and knowledgeable teacher. She conveys her vast experience and knowledge of the work with ease, humor and respect and holds space beautifully for the transformative practices she offers. This gentle and accessible introduction to the work of Sondra Fraleigh and EastWest Somatics (among others) offers a glimpse of the vast possibilities one can encounter when enquiring into yoga, movement and dance with a somatic approach. I can’t wait for my next module and the chance to go deeper still.
