Fulidhoo Island to Host Maldives First Yin Yoga Teacher Training Course

A 200 hours yin yoga therapy teacher training course will be held in Maldives for the first time this September.

Hosted in Fulidhoo Island in Vaavu Atoll at a local beachside guesthouse, the four-week course will be taught by Alexandra Denkinger, founder of The Body-Mind-Soul Centre in Goa. The course is Yoga Alliance accredited and successful participants will leave as certified yoga teachers. For those who would like to join a shorter course, a 100 hours, two-week option is also available.


Yin Yoga focuses on balance – physically, energetically, and mentally. In this teacher training, you’ll get the practice and all the knowledge to start teaching with a focus on this style of yoga. Students will leave with an understanding of the theory behind the practice and the confidence to lead a yin yoga therapy class.

Whether you’re an experienced yoga teacher looking to branch into yin yoga, or whether you’re still at the beginning of your yoga journey, this course is open for everyone.

“Yin Yoga creates an opportunity to release physical and emotional tension, free stagnant or blocked energy and cultivate a peaceful quality of mind,” explains Denkinger, “We’ll put you on the path to acquire the knowledge, the practical experience and confidence to earn the certificate and share this wisdom.”

“This is an incredible opportunity for those looking to gain a solid foundation and understanding of yin yoga here in the Maldives,” says course participant Adele Verdier. “Usually these courses are hosted in India, Sri Lanka and Bali but due to current travel restrictions, the Maldives has become the perfect choice!”

The 200 hours course begins on August 31st and runs through until September 25th. The 100 hours course begins on September 6th and runs through until September 18th.
