acupressure yin yoga training
Acu-Yin is the abbreviation for a new powerful yoga method that combines acupressure and yin yoga. It is based on a combination of yoga and Chinese medicine, both originating thousands of years ago.

The healing power of 
Acupressure & Yin Yoga 

Kata van Doesselaar always had a strong interest for Chinese Medicine, for many years. Especially when she found out how efficient it worked for her and how fast her body reacted to treatments. So she studied TCM, Chinese acupressure and 5 elements, Feng Shui and gained a lot of experience from her teachers Dr Wang Lifen, Li Ping and Dr Shan Su.

Meanwhile TCM kept surprising her, when it helped her to heal from allergies, (hay fever, food allergies) and also how it helped her to let go of deeply embedded childhood stories. As a senior yoga teacher Kata trained with Sarah Powers & Ty Powers and with practicing and teaching yin yoga in the last 10 years, her passion for Chinese Medicine kept growing stronger. She realised that based on all her holistic studies since 25 years now, together with her own life experiences and 5000+ hours as a yin yoga teacher trainer, she has a huge resource to develop teaching materials from. So she started with developing a new & unique acupressure & yin yoga teacher training. Now about 3 years after the start of this project, we are so pleased that we can share this advanced yin yoga training with you. And Kata follows her studies in Barcelona to soon graduate as an Acupuncturist. Join this profound teacher training with her to learn more about health, balance and Yourself! And of course tools to help others.

Acu-yin teaches me how my body is working.  It really has a healing effect

"Course is really great and I tried some acupressure points on my son and brother. For myself I find the points easily. I also helped someone who was cv positive and she had lung issues . So I recorded the acupressure points that she could try and it helped this is really great.
I have a lot of videos to watch but so far, I' m really enjoying learning about how my body is working, when I'm working on certain points. Really happy and grateful for being part of this yoga teacher training!"

Personal reviews of students

Deep self care & great help for yoga teachers
"It was a deep self care experience for me. I was always passionate about the meridians and the healing effects of acupressure points. I am very thankful for the 30 hours acuyin of Kata and I feel blessed for this opportunity. Acuyin really deepens more my yin practice. But also helps me every day, it has a healing effect. I use my acupressure points whenever I need it during the day. It's my self care and I really feel the energy of those points. I am sooo thankful @Kata van Doesselaar's teachings, for helping me through my journey as a yogini and a yoga teacher. Hoping to spread the message to as much people as we can to find a way for more self care and wellbeing." 🙏
