to Embodied Yin™ 200h Foundational Teacher Training and the profound and life changing journey it invites us to!
Embodied Yin™ is where the mystical permeates the mundane. It invites us to explore our multidimensional capacities for healing by listening and sensing with the whole body-mind. It increases awareness of our mind-body connection in each dimension and through different somatic approaches, intuitive movement, classical nondual Tantra, Chinese medicine and Yin yoga, opens up space by helping to release limitations.
In Yin Yoga we create gentle (sometimes more dynamic) long held postures and practices with an attitude of Maitri, loving kindness. The poses stimulate energy flow in meridians, energy channels, restore, rewire and replenish our nervous system.
During these Yang infused times, Yin, and the rebalancing of YinYang dynamics, helps us to stop, reset and respond as we start again.
Embodied Yin™ är en yogaform där det mystiska och det värdsliga får möta varandra. Det är en praktik som bjuder in till att uforska vår multidimensionella kapacitet till helande genom inlyssnande och inkännade av både kropp och sinne. Den ökar vår medvetenhet och kontakt med varje lager av oss själva genom olika somatiska praktiker och influenser, intuitiv rörelse, klassisk ickedualistisk Tantrisk filosofi, traditionell kinesisk medicin och yin yoga – allt för att öppna upp utrymme och frihet inom oss själva genom att släppa taget om begränsningar.
Denna unika yinyogalärarutbildning hålls på engelska då vi har både internationella lärare och elever, men flera av lärarna pratar svenska och kan stötta med flerspråkig förståelse av materialet under resans gång.
Testimonials from previous students
"The Embodied Yin Teacher Training has been life changing for me. Through the course of training I've received so many valuable insights about myself in such a magical way. Practicing embodiment has not only awakened my inner energies, it has also given me the possibility to dive deeper into who I really am. And along the path it's given me better and more inspiring tools to use as a guide.
Apart from embodiment I've also enjoyed to better understand Chinese medicine, anatomy, tantric philosophy and meditation. This teacher training does not only prepare you to facilitate and guide students in and out of asanas, it gives you keys to unlock so much more, almost like keys to a multidimensional world! I truly appreciate it as a student - and hopefully I'll be able to give some of the same experiences as a teacher."

"Den här utbildningen är för dig som är redo att genomföra en resa genom dina inre landskap. Genom tid och utrymme kommer du sila kunskapen genom alla dina lager. Genom kroppens visdom uppleva Yin yoga på ett nytt sätt.
Den här utbildningen är något för dig som verkligen vill djupdyka in i elementen av kinesisk medicin, förkroppsliga din asana praktisering och hitta essensen av ditt egna uttryck. Jag har svårt att hitta orden att beskriva Embodied Yin Yoga Teacher Training – den måste upplevas. För mig var detta en resa genom kroppens alla system, att få lära känna den inkännande känslan av ditt inre, från ditt inre.
Den här utbildningen är verkligen något utöver den vanliga yoga utbildningen. Våga påbörja resan – du kommer inte att ångra dig. Det var en av dem bästa och modigaste sakerna jag gjort i mitt liv."

"A year ago I started on a new journey. I didn’t know exactly what it would give me or what it would lead to. I just felt a deep calling. It’s been for sure one of the most challenging yet one of the most rewarding thing I have done. I have learned so much about myself, about being in my body, self love and acceptance, reconnecting to my truest nature.
But I have also learned so much from all the beautiful women crossing my path during this time. Togetherness, sisterhood, unconditional love and support have a new meaning for me and I am truly amazed and thankful for my extraordinary teachers and former classmates."

Inna found yoga many years ago, and it created a profound impact eventually guiding her back, and back again, deeper each time. From that moment on, she knew yoga would be her offering to the world one day, and a bit down the path, she left a flourishing career in journalism and never looked back. She is one of the co-founders of Pranama – The Center of The Great Heart and cherishes the sacredness of this space and the transformation that it allows for greatly.
Following her strong intuition in everything she creates, Inna guides groups and invidividuals through deep inner journeys. Her colourful nature, feminine energy and healing touch can be found in all her yoga classes and offerings. Her path translates also literally in her brand called Woman's Path under which she does healing work, holds women's circles and supports women intuitively.
The journey of Embodied Flow™ has been a true home coming for Inna, and it changed both her teachings and practice completely. She is now offering a blend of embodied expressions and teaches Authentic Flow & Embodied Yin™ weekly at Pranama as well teaches in Pranamas Embodied Yin™ 200h Teacher Training and Authentic Flow 200h Teacher Training. Above that she also facilitates circles, immersions and workshops.
Inna holds more then 800h and keeps diving back in into the sacred teachings of yoga, movement and connection every time she gets a chance. Inna's main teachers are Satu Tuomela, Tara Judelle & Myra Avedon.

With a burning heart for exploring movement, the mind, and everything in between Maija’s path took her finally after many years of practicing yoga into, something unavoidable, a full-time teacher and studio owner.
With roots in classical hatha tradition Maija found her way into embodiment with Embodied Flow™ and Authentic Flow Tribe. She has over 500 RYT training hours, her greatest inspiration coming from her teachers Satu Tuomela, Tara Judelle and Scott Lyons. Her practice and teachings are highly influenced by a tantric view and the search for an embodied experience and connection to ourselves. Her classes are usually slow to allow you to fully be in the flow of the moment with the entire body and mind. She has also been influenced by a cross discipline of yoga, dance and freediving with a love of the water element. She has been teaching yoga since 2014.
With trust in her own transformational path she transmits her calm to her students guiding into their own experience and authentic expression. She teaches weekly classes, workshops, immersions and trainings in Embodied Yin™ and Authentic Flow.

Movement is Linas first language. The act of moving – of being in motion – streams of movement and pauses – informs the way we touch the world. A movement can be specific, can be controlled, movement is also untamed, potent, fierce, omnipresent. It is the music of the universe: the way all matter is expressing itself – the way we are able to express ourselves into the world.
Movement inhabits the stillness just as stillness is at the heart of movement. It is a way to return, a pathway back to preverbal us.
Lina finds joy and depth in moving. She finds solutions, dissolves, recreates. The body can never lie and so it creates itself out of itself. Moving as she wants to, without judgment or thought is the greatest exploration of all and it brings Lina joy, groundedness, balance.
Lina is a certified Embodied Flow™ and Somatic Movement Therapy teacher as well as a practitioner of Shiatsu and Chinese Medicine. She expresses the warmest of gratitude towards her teachers whose inspiration and energy supports her in my everyday life and work, a deep bow to Tara Judelle, Dr. Scott Lyons, Myra Avedon, Helena Lambert, Lo Baochun, Satu Tuomela, Beto Pérez for this past decade of movement, embodied teachings and inspiration.
