About Your Teacher

I’m Regina (Regi) a highly qualified and experienced, international, senior Yoga Teacher and founder of Yinstitute for further Yin Yoga teacher training. As a professional trainer and continuing education provider I have been accredited by the Yoga Alliance UK and USA.

I am a ‘disciple’ of Paul Grilley, the ‘godfather’ of Yin Yoga, having trained with him directly since 2006 and continued my studies directly under Paul & Suzee Grilley and Sarah & Ty Powers until I completed 500+hrs RYT with both. After more 16 years of teaching, with over 2000 RYT, and over 35 years of bodywork I decided that it is time to share my knowledge and passion of Yin Yoga with other like minded souls. You can read more about me here

I truly believe “A yoga teacher is a guru as well as a student for life.” 

Immerse yourself into the practice of ‘authentic’ pure Yin Yoga – Meridian Theory, Kriya Yoga, Chakra Meditation and Theory, Yoga Nidra and Embodied Mindfulness.  Join me for this advanced Yin Yoga Teacher Training.

When & Where is the Course?

Module 1 & 2 in England and Online virtual live on stubioBe

Online, virtual live and face to face….In light of the developing  Covid-19 situation and the hopefully imminent lifting of lockdown restrictions.
I am very much in favour of face to face training in order touch see and feel and had therefore delayed the training now for almost a year. I have been teaching my weekly classes and workshops online since last March and have come to the conclusion that, although not quite the same – I would present this course as a combination of both,  so that those students that are not able to partake in person with the face to face classes can do so online, virtual live through studio BE.
  • Certification: 60 hours RYT per Module with Yoga Orchid Yinstitute’s (Yoga Alliance professions certified), further teacher training program. This training is delivered using a modular approach – split between 6 weekend units, once a month, spread over 6 months, so that it can fit around your busy life, family or work schedule. More importantly, it gives you a month –  in between –  to digest all the information.
  • Dates: This course is spread over 6 weekends on a Saturday and a Sunday from 10.00 AM – 5.30 PM GMT. Due to current circumstances future trainings will be in 2023. Let us know if you would like to get your name on the waiting list.
