The subtle body is the energetic basis to life which permeates all living things. It is life’s energetic spark which can be referred to as spirit. More often experienced as emotions, thoughts, and sometimes seen and felt as the Auric field. Its vibration is higher than that of the physical body, creating an energetic sheath which encapsulates the physical body, protecting it from pathogenic invasion.

Qi and prana are two terms used in Daoism and Hinduism to refer to the energy that makes up the subtle body. The chakras are the energy centers that run close to the spine feeding the nadis and meridians (energy pathways). After finishing this course, you will receive a 100-hour Yoga Alliance certificate.

This Subtle Body module is a part of the 300-hour Yin Fascial yoga advanced program, which is a complete study in the understanding of the three main elements that compose the Yin Fascial yoga system. It is an in-depth, more detailed teaching leading towards a subtler extension of the 200-hour Spiral and Yin Fascial yoga certificate.

The 300-hour program is offered in three separate 100-hour modules in order to give you time for this in depth study to teach with greater skill than is achieved in a 200-hour registered yoga teacher. The three modules of this 300 hours are 100-hour Yin Fascial yoga (Structural Body module), 100-hour Yin Fascial yoga (Subtle Body module), and 100-hour Yin Fascial yoga (Mindfulness module).

The program will provide you with comprehensive lessons to deepen and enhance your teaching skills on the physical, energetic, and causal bodies through a series of lectures, hands-on practice, practical demonstrations, and videos. It is consistently sought after by yoga practitioners and teachers looking to deepen or transform their practice.

This program particularly appeals to students seeking a holistic understanding of physical and energetic benefits of a balanced yoga practice and lifestyle. It is useful to students and teachers who are intrigued by the psychosomatic trauma release experience and would like to bring this to their teaching and practice. A great strength of this program lies in the diversity of presented subjects, meticulously taught by high standard of professional teachers.

    Beta felt drawn by spirituality from a very young age and yearned to learn more. She focuses on physical and emotional trauma release, and on supporting lasting wellness for the physical and emotional bodies. Beta moved to Boston, where her love for Ashtanga and Power yoga was born, while frequenting Baron Baptiste classes. She then got certified in an Ashtanga-based Power yoga at the Soft and Hard Institute with Beryl Bender Birch and in Myofascial Release Therapy at the Palmers Institute of Bodywork.

  • Simon Calder

    Simon has been involved in Eastern practices since the age of five, where he was introduced to judo and the elements of mindful practice in relation to body awareness. At 13, Simon was introduced to a Benedictine monk who introduced him to western spiritual sciences of "teilhard de chardin," and other western esoteric enlightenment systems. At 17, Simon came to study with Master Choy, a Daoist master from China who taught the Taoist perspective to life, mindfulness, Qigong, and internal cultivation.

    "Beta's treatments are just amazing. She knows exactly what parts of the body need work and how to help them release tension and trauma in a very safe and effective way. I always feel so much lighter after her sessions."

    "It was a collective healing effort. Beta taught me how to help her help me with my breath. I had tried a lot of modalities over the years following my bike accident, and in three sessions of myofascial release, Beta managed to get deep into my damaged shoulder and restore the mobility I hadn't had."

    "So proud of the beautiful video that was put together while I was in Turkey, that explains a little about the course module for the Yin yoga teacher training. Truly, it is something you have to experience, as words don't do it justice! By far, it was my favorite out of the over 700 hours I have taken!"

    "I loved working with Beta. Over a series of dynamic, immersive sessions, we used a number of technologies to affect deep change, insight, and opening at the level of the body. Beta is authentic and heartfelt, and I can highly recommend her for anyone looking for a profound and nourishing somatic experience."

    "The experience I had with this training is hard to put in words. I chose the training to learn more about Yin yoga, but at the end I learned more about myself. It was transformational. Beta has a beautiful way to teach you through experience. You feel the power of the practice within yourself."
