Yoga teacher training testimonials

TJ’s training empowered me to find more freedom in the ways I both practice and teach yin – Amy R
Through analogues, diagrams and a variety of other ways of explaining things, I left with more of an understanding and in some cases, the beginning of an understanding of certain aspects that never connected with me. – Teresa R

Being a school teacher your style was very clear to me. Honestly I have done a lot of trainings and yours was by far the best. – Jenny C

TJ cultivates a real sense of community in the trainings and encourages students to support one another and grow even after graduating from the course. – Amanda S

The comprehensiveness of the training not only enhanced my understanding but helped me to incorporate yin into my life. – Wendy

From our most recent training at Yoga Sanctuary…

What an awesome experience! TJ makes the course that is for sure. His calm manner and knowledge of Yin is awesome and made the training run with ease. I especially enjoyed learning Asana’s, Anatomy and Meditation. I have come away from the training with a great new respect to this practise. Thanks TJ.

Read TJ’s book… the Yin Nuance, The Tao of practicing and teaching Yin Yoga.
by TJ Maher

yin nuanceTo all my teachers and all beings. To live as mindfully and joyfully as I am able while sharing what I have learned is the best way that I can imagine to repay the many many teachings I have had in this blessed life.

May all benefit that come from my endeavours and this book be given to all beings, to release them from their suffering and guide them to realise their enlightenment.

“Like the ancient Tao Te Ching, written almost 2,500 years ago, the format of this book is accessible, easy to digest and a joy to read.” – Bernie Clark, author The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga.

“After reading this gem, I found myself leading my students in and out of ‘spacesuits’; exploring inner landscapes and playing with gravity. Prepare to step in and zip up for this nuance filled trip”  – Jessica Wolf, owner Wild Wolf’s Yoga Studio, Bristol UK.

Pick up from the studio only. We will post by request.
