Yin Yoga brings your awareness through the tissues of the body releasing tension layer by layer. Becoming well versed in Yin Yoga is like being able to apply a deep tissue massage to your own body with your mind. Making that experiential connection to all you have heard or read about chi, you can begin to find a new way to experience your body.

Instructor: TJ Maher
TJ’s Yoga story began when he received a book, the Tao Te Ching, as a gift from his sister 18 years ago. The book poetically explores ideas that resonated with him then and continue to guide him today.
TJ’s Yin Yoga training began with Bernie Clark’s 60 hour Yin training in Vancouver. Next, he studied with Corina Benner in her 30 hour Yin training in NYC. After that, he found Stephanie Calhoun and took her 100 hour Yin training in New Brunswick. TJ liked Stephanie’s teachings so much he chose to pursue his 200 hour Yoga teacher training with her. From there he continued with her 100 hour Chakra training and 100-hour Restorative Yoga training, completing his 500-hour training in 2015. In November of that year, TJ completed a 30-day solitary self-guided meditation
retreat at Milarepa Center in Vermont.
TJ founded YUJMU in 2014 to share the subtle practices that had brought him so much joy and wellness. Currently focused on Yin Yoga Teacher Trainings YUJMU has grown to reach an international audience creating highly trained Yin teachers worldwide.
