In addition to the physical practice, you'll also explore Yin Krama, a methodical approach to sequencing yin yoga postures, and develop your teaching methodology. Through this process, you'll refine your voice, language, and create a supportive space that empowers you on your Yoga teaching journey.
We are excited to announce our new collaboration with the stunning Yoga Darsana our partner venue for our upcoming April, May and June 2024 Yin Yoga training.
A stunning space for yoga in Salthill, with experienced teachers offering classes facing the Burren and the sea.
Yoga darśana is the place to come for yoga in Galway, to discover new approaches, and strengthen your practice.
Darśana is the Sanskrit word for mirror or reflection. The studio name yoga darśana is inspired by the yoga Sutras of Patañjali. It represents how yoga is like a mirror, reflecting the soul through one’s thoughts and actions.
Experience the invigorating embrace of the salty air as it caresses your skin, filling your lungs with the refreshing ocean breeze. Allow the sea water to awaken your senses and revitalise your body as you submerge yourself in the refreshing waters for a Sea Swim after class!
Years before Salthill gained its current popularity, Miriam, lead trainer of BeWell had been spending a lot of time in this little pocket of beauty on the West coast of Ireland...
'My Mum is from Salthill. She grew up sea swimming every day for as long as she can remember in Winter and in Summer. As children we would be bundled into the car and brought to Salthill every second weekend. I can remember exploring the Prom with my cousins, eating Crunchy & Choc ice creams year round and refusing to come home from Lesiure Land as a child! Salthill is a very special place for me full of gorgeous memories. It has a raw, strong yet charismatic ocean energy that is indescribable. An ideal place in the world to deepen one's understanding of the elements and their energies. I cannot wait and am very proud to delivery our April 50 Hours Yin Yoga Teacher Training course at the stunning Yoga Darsana, Salthill, Galway.
Alongside our highly anticipated 2024 Yin Yoga Teacher Training program, there are a selection of activities for you to enjoy during your stay in Salthill, Galway.

Miriam O' Reilly
BeWell - Owner and Lead Trainer
BeWell-Yoga Teacher Training School
Join us on a journey to discover the beauty of wellness with Miriam, our founder and lead trainer at BeWell-Yoga Teacher Training School. With over 10 years of experience in empowering people to reach their ultimate potential through daily habits and practices that support personal wellbeing, Miriam's unwavering passion is contagious.
From Lake Como, Italy to Bali, Miriam has traveled the globe to attend training courses and retreats in ancient wellness skills rooted in Yoga, Meditation, Ayurveda, Mindfulness, Yoga Philosophy, and Sound Healing. Her journey led her to become an internationally recognized RYT-200 Yoga Teacher after studying intensively in Ubud, Bali in January 2015.
Miriam offered Vinyasa Flow Yoga lessons in the picturesque Lake Como, Milan, and Ticino, Switzerland, before her heart led her back home to Ireland in 2019. Since then, she founded BeWell-Ireland and the BeWell-Yoga Teacher Training School, training over 120 Yoga Teacher Trainees from around the globe.
Her innovative approach to teaching includes a hybrid mechanic, blending in-person and online elements, allowing for flexibility and accessibility for all trainees.
But Miriam's passion doesn't stop there. In September 2021, BeWell Longford, our brick-and-mortar Yoga Studio/Holistic Center, opened its doors, allowing us to serve the local community with our Yoga and Pilates classes, and Holistic treatments.
Miriam believed that operating a Yoga Studio/Holistic centre and teaching Yoga full time further supports the strength and quality of our teacher training programs.
'BeWell understands and serves the needs of our local community on a full time basis. We are plugged into the community and continue to improve our classes, workshops and teacher training courses as per their ongoing feedback. The people who invest in our studio weekly for their classes support us in the understanding of serving clients with Yin as per community needs rather than theory from textbooks.
This sets us apart from other courses with
yoga teacher trainers who teach Yoga as their full time job
yoga teacher trainers who have experience running Yoga studios
yoga teacher trainers who work with the public in person on an ongoing regular basis
yoga teacher trainers who run teachers trainings alongside workshops, events and weekly classes rather than back to back teacher trainings only
We cannot wait to support you on this journey through Yin @ the Stunning location of Strandhill, Sligo'. - Miriam

The 26 Yin Yoga postures
The Rebound & the Counterpose

THE 12 WEEK YIN YOGA IMMERSION
The 12 Week Yin Yoga Immersion begins from April 6th when we first meet. It coincides with the training dates.
Each week over April, May and June, the students on the course will be given little tasks to complete over the week so that they are slowly breaking down all of the content of the course slowly.
If there are students who have more time who prefer to work faster, we can accommodate.
If there are students who have little time and cannot complete weekly homework, we can accommodate.
The weekly tasks usually consist of
a)attending a Yin class locally or online live with BeWell - and journalling the experience
b) doing 15-20 mins at home practice once per week - and journalling the experience
c) a little bit of reading or listening to Mp3s
We know that you're eager to complete your Yoga Alliance CPD teacher training, and we're excited to share the details of what you'll be completing to get there. Don't worry, it's not a long, drawn-out process!
Manageable and non time-consuming exercises are suggested over the 12 weeks during the course. If you keep up and complete all of these exercises as well as attending the 6 days in person, you'll be able to graduate and receive your certification in no time.
You'll need to complete regular journaling, intention setting, and self-practice of specific postures, all linked to the season and element. If you are very busy in April, May and June, you'll have approximately one year to submit these materials.
We'll also ask you to submit recordings of your teaching practice and complete a theory exam, so you can feel confident in your knowledge and skills. Overall, we've designed our program to be comprehensive, yet manageable for busy schedules, so you can complete your training and start sharing your passion for yoga with others in no time.
