Yin Yoga and Storytelling – Module 3

with Biff Mithoefer, E-RYT 500 and Eric Archer

November 17 - 22, 2024

Join Biff Mithoefer, author of The Yin Yoga Kit, and Eric Archer, a senior Jamtse teacher, musician, and poet for a Yin Yoga training that explores the impact of storytelling on your life and body. What stories are carried in the body, and how do we incorporate meaningful storytelling in our teaching or practice.

Storytelling is the most ancient of the healing arts. Stories remind us that our lives ebb and flow. Understanding how your life moves through the universe’s bigger story can help you recognize what stories to let go of and what stories to nourish.

By putting yourself in Yin postures and accessing your deep connective tissue, you will begin to connect with your stories on a deep, somatic level. Some of these stories are
healing and can be embraced, while some no longer serve you and can be transformed. When you understand the role storytelling can have in your life, you can learn to genuinely listen to your own stories and respect them for what they can teach you.

This module will expand the heart of the Jamtse approach to Yin Yoga, while exploring the relationship of storytelling to our own unique Yin Yoga practice, incorporating deep listening, ecstatic poetry, live music, and meditation.

If you can’t stay for the week-long training, join Biff for the weekend workshop, Introduction to Yin Yoga, Nov. 15–17.

Receive 10% off both programs’ tuition when registering for Introduction to Yin Yoga (Nov. 15–17, 2024) and Yin Yoga and Storytelling – Module 3 (Nov. 17–22, 2024). Discount code will be provided in Introductions to Yin Yoga’s confirmation email and can be applied to Yin Yoga and Storytelling – Module 3’s registration.

Training Information


This training is a stand-alone training and is open to any dedicated Yoga students and teachers who are interested in deepening their practice or teaching. If you haven’t studied with Biff before and plan on coming to the third module only, we ask that you read The Yin Yoga Kit and familiarize yourself with the basic concepts of Yin Yoga.

Continuing Education (CE) Opportunities

​The training will consist of approximately 45 contact hours. In order to receive a certificate of completion, each student will be asked to complete an additional 5 hours of independent study during the 30 days following the training. After completing the independent study, each student will communicate their experience to Biff by mail or email. Your communication won’t be judged or graded, and each participant will receive a certificate of completion for 50 hours of Yin Yoga teacher training.


This Yin Yoga module gathers participants from all of the above spheres and more, to create a storytelling family where joys, sorrows, achievements, disappointments, and so much else is shared in a very supportive atmosphere. Be ready to laugh, tear up a bit, and be awed by each participant. — Joe Duquette

Biff and the rest of the staff were incredibly kind and helpful. I learned so much from this program and can’t wait to take it out into my community to share with others. Yogaville is a tremendously kind and loving community. I’m so grateful for my experience here. — Leah Sandlin

An unfolding that deepened my personal practice and will forever change my teaching. My heart was expanded. — Carl Deacon
