The Art of Letting Go

A 60-hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course – A functional approach


The Art of Letting Go is a Yin Yoga immersion/training open to both qualified Yoga and Pilates teachers and practitioners alike,  led by Austin Ince with the assistance of Monic. The practice of Yin can be incredibly therapeutic and for some students it may be the first step upon their teaching journey. Each day will begin with a twenty-minute meditation, followed by chanting and a two hour plus Yin asana practice. Whilst each daily practice will be different, we will have practiced all the main Yin poses included variations by the end of the course. If you are a Yoga teacher, this course qualifies as 60 hours of CPD with Yoga Alliance. A certificate will be presented upon completion.

"Thank you so much - I really enjoyed the course Austin…. your anatomy teaching is brilliant…I have a much better understanding after this than after 500 hours of YTT.” - Helen

"I learned so much over the week, especially about anatomy which was taught so well making it practical and accessible. I learned more this week than all other courses covering anatomy put together.” - Veronika

"It was so practical and informative. The practices were incredible - I’ve learnt more about my post babies’ body than I have in the last four years so thank you.”- Felicity

"He exudes all the principles of Yin in his teaching techniques, the Effortless Effort, working hard yet allowing us time for things to really sink in. His anatomy teaching is exemplary too. He made concepts I’ve struggled with for years make sense.” - Lizzie


"It challenged my teaching habits and opened me up to understanding that every body is different. I would recommend the training to anyone... interested in developing their Yin Yoga practice." - Veronica 


"The course was... a true immersion into yin. I left feeling completely confident... I would recommend [it] to any yoga teacher interested in learning more." - Jo 


There is one book that I recommend to you too help you through the course.

The second edition of Bernie Clark’s, “The Complete Guide to Yin Yoga”

You don’t have to read it beforehand, in some ways it’s better not to. The concepts are easier to understand once we cover them on the course. By all means feel free to dip into the book but don’t be too concerned if you don’t grasp some of it.

Please contact Yoga Milan for more information or any questions about the course.
