Akirayoga – Claire Green

Yoga teacher, yoga therapist & passionate yin yogi. From Claire’s very first encounter with yoga, she was hooked. She fell in love with the pure raw healing potential of the practice: the contrast between the strength & power of a yang practice compared to the grace & surrender within a yin practice & enjoys the beautiful flow between the two extremes. Claire is passionate how yoga empowers people in the healing process. Rather, than being a passive recipient of treatment, the student is actively engaged in the path to their own well-being. Her role, as a teacher, is to guide you to listen & be present to your own subtle messages your body offers & directing you to the tools to connect & re-balance; teaching you the way to implement these tools.

Claire started practicing yoga 18 years ago following having sciatica & pelvic pain. Also suffering from anxiety & a high alert state as a young adult, self medication in numerous ways was a habitual pattern. Rather than take pain killers for the sciatica, yoga entered her life after stumbling across a yoga video at a yard sale.

Initially, due to the social anxiety it was very much a personal self taught practice not entering a class for two years. Organically submerging into Yin Yoga in particular turned Claire’s life around in terms of healing, over coming the many layers & attributes of social anxiety & dealing with associated physical pain and in-balance; reconnecting with herself as well as with others. As a highly sensitive child yoga enabled a tapping into skills to help others rather than feeling dis-connected with the world.

Claire holds a degree in Psychology, Sociology & Politics, a degree in Community Justice, & a classroom Teaching Level 4 Diploma. Eight years as a previous probation officer. She then worked for five years within the Adult Education system as a Yoga Program manager building city wide free classes for people with mental, emotional & physical health problems & for those seeking interactive community links.

A grateful student of her vastly knowledgeable yoga teachers, Claire teaches a fusion of the styles that she has studied with a strong emphasis on using the whole body, & the breath to develop strength, essential for a Yang practice & the sacred balance of effort & surrender in the Yin practice. Her classes find equal emphasis on strength building of the mind, body & soul, as well as graceful acceptance.  Akira means ‘graceful strength‘ in Sanskrit & ‘bright’ in Japanese. Researching the biblical meaning of the name Claire, it also came up as ‘bright’. Claire found her yoga name.

Yin Yoga as Therapy

Yin Yoga therapy uses the tools of yin-yoga, working with the energy of the body and colour therapy to achieve specific outcomes according to the particular needs of the individual.

Where do we store our emotions?

Our mind (also subconscious mind) expresses itself in the form of thoughts, these thoughts go deeper in the body into feelings and emotions. So long we are alive we all experience different states: joy, fear, love, anger, frustration, disappointment etc.

“55 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training” Feb 29, 2020 – Claire was absolutely amazing. Her knowledge of yin was incredible. I learned so much from the classes. I am more confident in teaching yin yoga now. The class set up was fantastic. Highly recommend Claire.

Jess Williams akirayoga_claire facebook review December 2019

I recently completed a 55 hour yin yoga teacher training course with Claire. Claire is a fantastic teacher: very professional but always maintains a sense of fun. Claire demonstrated very thorough theoretical and practical knowledge of yin yoga. In just a week she was able to help me listen to my own body and intuitively respond to what my body needs in yin yoga shapes more so than any other yin yoga teacher has before. As I am someone who is already naturally quite flexible, a lot of yin yoga teachers “give up” on me as they find it difficult to offer variations – but Claire offered me guidance that helped me get deeper into my body. Claire is also very affable and supported team bonding – by the end of the week, all of us attending the yin yoga training group were good friends. I was really happy with my experience – well worth the time and money

Joey Kang – akirayoga_claire facebook review December 2019

I had an amazing week of Yin yoga training from Claire. She is not just only a knowledgeable and experienced teacher, but also a caring and compassionate life mentor. As english isn’t my mother language plus this is my first yoga training, at the beginning I was kind of scared of getting understand on all the lessons. However, her consistent encouragement and passionate truly inspiring me. The knowledge I’ve learnt from this training is more than I expected. Now I feel more confident to practice Yin on my own with awareness of what’s for me. Thanks Claire for sharing all those amazing moments with me. We will def see each other again for my 200 hrs training.

Adam Bailey – akirayoga_claire facebook review December 2019

I recently completed a Yin yoga teacher training with Claire at H20 yoga in Gili Air. It was an awesome course with great content. Claire gave us a deep immersion into the feeling of Yin yoga within our own bodies which becomes the foundation we are able to go on and teach from. Claire delivered great content on Taoism, meridians and the theoretical background of Yin yoga. Claire is brilliant at holding space, facilitating, caring for the well being of students and also testing our understanding of the teaching points she is delivering. If you get a chance to do a training with Claire go for it. I hope our paths cross again sometime.

I had the most amazing time learning from Claire in the yin yoga teacher training. She has a great knowledge of yoga in general and especially in yin yoga. She has a great way to provide her knowledge and to bring the theory into practice. I even learned a lot of things to integrate into my yang hours and personal practice. Out of the many ttc I have already done, I probably enjoyed this one the most. I would def come back to Claire if I want to deepen my yin knowledge and teachings.

Han Ferdani – akirayoga_claire facebook review December 2019

I attended the 55 hour Yin Yoga Teacher Training with Claire. She is an intuitive, attentive, sensitive, knowledgeable and experienced teacher and mentor with such energy. She provided a very safe place to take us on the beautiful journey of yin yoga. The content of the course was much more than I had expected, I have now so much tools to practice and inspire people in their own journey towards yin yoga. I highly recommend her classes and will not hesitate in doing further education on Yoga with her. Thank you Claire and keep the great work!

After not long completing 55 hour Yin teacher training with Claire… words can not express the gratitude I feel for experiencing such an amazing week. On so many levels. I loved every minute of it. Claire is an incredible instructor, teacher and mentor. I would whole heartily recommend any of Claire’s retreats or training as she has a wealth of knowledge and her energy is so inspiring. She has the ability to transform and bring out the best in oneself. A very special soul indeed.

Emma Curtis-Smith – akirayoga_claire facebook review November 2019

Claire taught me for the 7 day 55 hour Yin Yoga RYTT. I found Claire to be knowledgable, open, kind, funny and loving. I have come away with an understanding of the history of Yin, the meridians and the difference between Yin and Yang yoga practices. Thanks so much Claire for being a great human and for sharing your knowledge with me. Hugs

Celia Grubba – akirayoga_claire facebook review November 2019

I took part in the 55 hour Yin Yoga training with Claire and it was truly a transformational week. Aside from imparting her wealth of knowledge on the group about yin yoga, the meridians energy systems, and theory; Claire made the week about bringing us closer to ourselves, each other, and our practice. Claire was patient and fun and fostered a caring, nurturing environment that I saw the whole group grow from. I could not recommend this experience and Claire enough.

Kate Parrott – akirayoga_claire facebook review October 2019

Claire has been the most wonderful mentor over the past year. It has been such a privilege to assist on her Yin teacher training courses. She had been my biggest cheerleader, guiding and supporting me all the way. Claire is an inspiring teacher to work with. She has a unique way of teaching Yin Yoga that drew me in from the start. She offers the perfect balance of sound anatomical knowledge, fluid intelligent sequencing, and an intuitive healing presence

Francee Flowers Book Yoga Retreats H20 Yoga and Meditation Center Review September 2019: Yin yoga Teacher Training at its best.

After successfully completing the Yin yoga course with Clare and Kate I feel so confident in teaching in this style and applying the theory to my own practice. It was an amazing week, beautiful accommodation, amazing people, I loved every minute . to be able to walk 2 minutes from the beach twice a day for a dip in the calm ocean was a blessing. H20 is a great location, I have so much gratitude to the teachers for making the learning so interactive, fun and relevant. Sending much love to you both and the H20 team for taking care of me.

Carlos Rivera Book Yoga Retreats H20 Yoga and Meditation Center Review September 2019: Fantastic Teacher Training.

H20 was the perfect place for the training course I completed with Clare and have to say it was brilliant and went beyond what I actually expected. In a week we were put through our paces, not just with the in-depth philosophy, lectures and physical classes but being asked to relate this to our own personal experience was like being put through my own psychotherapy which I wasn’t expecting. The syllabus did say the course would teach students the go through the process of Yin yoga themselves to be able to teach others, and this it truly did. Not only do i feel ready to teach Yin yoga but I learnt more about my own life patterns and how to use this beautiful tool to bring the balance I longed for now in my own life. Thank you Clare and the lovely assistant Kate for your beautiful work I hope I meet you both again.

Olga Sharipova Book Yoga Retreats review at H20 yoga and Meditation Centre September 2019: Excellent Training Program

I can thoroughly recommend the training, it was presented very professionally and clearly. The group was beautiful, a very mixed bunch, some teachers some just with just a very keen interest to learn more. Claire prepared all of us to teach and the course program was delivered in a way with very effective teaching skills to allow us to understand and absorb. H20 is a beautiful facility and the staff are charming. I am sure I will return for other trainings.

Angela Griffiths recommends akirayoga_claire. September Facebook review 2019

I attended Claire’s 55 hour Yin Yoga teacher training last week at H20, in Gili Air. I hadn’t met Claire before the training and decided to register for the training purely on the reviews from previous students who had taken the same training. I am so glad I did, Claire is a wonderful, passionate teacher who lives and breathes the yogic philosophy and is able to tailor the teaching of her vast knowledge to the level of her students understanding, whether that be a beginner new to teaching or a more advanced teacher. The program was fairly intense with fairly long days, but the time flew by because the lectures were interesting and fun. The physical practise was superb and I so benefited from these on a personal level as well as understanding how to deliver a class for my students. I highly recommend Claire’s training she is a gifted teacher who walks the talk! Thank you Claire for a wonderful week and for sharing your passion.

A big THANK YOU to Claire, who made sure we do yoga in a safe and respectful way for our body and who teached us so much more than just yoga. I definitely recommend her classes to everyone who are not just interested in doing a workout yoga. I felt home for a week and would definitely come back again!

This was a beautiful week of incredible yoga tuition, excellent food and the island lifestyle we all dream of. I met a cool bunch of yogis and yogini’s and we plan to all catch up in Barcelona for a re union in 12 months. This was a good investment. We learnt, we felt, we experienced, I now now understand the beauty of Yin that was eluding me, thanks to Claire’s vast knowledge and ability to convey that.
Yin Yoga Teacher Training Bali

June and July 2019 was a hard core Yoga trip I had been planning for a year. I visited many studios in Ubud, Seminyak, Canguu and on the different Gili islands. After attending a drop in class with Clare at H20 I decided to stay and do a retreat package.Clare and the other teachers are top shelf, they are not about gymnastics, they are just normal people that have followed the path of self improvement in their own lives for a long time and have nice and meaningful things to share with people. They all seem to approach yoga in a careful way, not reckless like some other places which is very re-assuring.

Amazing structure and depth to the course which is a credit to Clare. The location is also spot on, with an amazing centre that has everything you need on site all set on a beautiful paradise island.

Everything from the structure and knowledge base, to the yoga center on a idyllic island was perfect. Thank you.

I attended the yin yoga course with Clare and it was exceptional. The amount of information, theory and practical sessions is a real credit to Clare and her ability to structure all this information into the time span, I enjoyed it so much and feel both inspired and motivated to take this new learning into my teaching. The H20 center was the perfect setting to aid learning, it was so peaceful and all the staff made my stay very comfortable and enjoyable. Thank you Clare and the H20 team.

Book Yoga Retreat for H20 yoga and meditation centre review by Mia Presley. June 4, 2019

This was my second visit to H2O to attend the 55 hour Yin Teacher training course with Claire.I attended the 7 day mindfulness retreat a couple of years ago and this motivated me to travel to India and become a Yoga teacher. I was impressed with Claire as a instructor then so when I discovered that she was running the Yin course I didn’t hesitate as I was already interested in teaching Yin. I found Claires course to be excellent it was well structured and very hands on . Claires passion and enthusiasm for Yoga is impressive and she is very dedicated to her calling. I would recommend it without any hesitation for anyone considering to become a yin teacher. So once again Claire thank you for your dedication and also to Jon for creating such a good environment for anyone who visits H2O

May 25, 2019 – JimH Tripadvisor review at H20 Yoga and Meditation Centre: Yin Yoga Teaching Course

I was at H20 yoga for their yin yoga course. The place is very peaceful and quiet most of the day. The staff is so sweet and kind, kept on smiling away 
The course covered all topics that I expected from a yin yoga training: meridians, sequencing, a lot of practice, personal reflection and personal attention. We got creative with paint, Claire’s lectures were very clear and well-accompanied with to-the-point notes on a flip-over and we got to do some aqua yoga, which is the floatiest experience ever! I enjoyed sitting in the shade of the café, reading or writing and cruiusing the cute little island on bikes that are for rent at H20. I truely recommend trhe training to anyone who wants to leave the island with a deep understanding of what yin yoga is, can mean for the body and can trigger in the mind. Powerful tool,
thanks everyone!

Ingeling99 May 27, 2019 Tripadvisor review for H20 Yoga and Meditation centre – Deep dive into yin yoga

I came to H20 for a short Yin Yoga teacher training and thoroughly enjoyed it. From the moment of arriving, the whole service at this center was fantastic. I was well looked after by all the staff and the design of the course exceeded my expectations. It is a credit to Clare how she manages to structure so much information into one week. Having all the yoga classes linked to the lectures each day really helped the learning and integration of the theory. I feel excited for bringing the Yin style into my teaching and hope to come back to H20 for just a holiday next year.

I completed the Yin Yoga course with Clare and found it fantastic, from the level of knowledge base, expertise in this field, teacher instruction to the whole design and structure of the course, it was a credit to Clare to cover so many elements over such a short space of time, it exceeded my expectations and left me excited to begin putting this all into my teaching practice. The center itself is set on a paradise island, with no cars and minutes from the beach. It has everything on site to make things so easy for you during training, including a healthy cafe and spa. I plan to come back next year to come back and do the 200 hours. Thank you Clare and H20.

Book Yoga Retreat for H20 yoga and meditation centre Review by Bradley Thompson. May 28, 2019

I attended the Yin course with Clare and it exceeded my expectations. Her knowledge base, professionalism and humor was everything I needed to begin my own journey of self healing following a breakdown. The center itself is in a perfect location just minutes from both the harbor and beach and had everything I wanted for a small break. The social scene here is great if your traveling alone, sitting around the cafe or indulging in a spa treatment and I found both the host/owner and all the staff here very polite, friendly and attentive. I plan to come back later in the year to do some more work with Clare and very much look forward to this.

Embarking on a deeper understanding of Yin Yoga was a very important step on my spiritual path and the course led by Claire was magnificent.

I loved the structure and knowledge that this course delivered, to be able to have this content delivered so clearly and precisely in the time allocated is a credit to Claire, your knowledge and understanding of mind, body and spirit comes through beautifully.
Claire puts so much passion into every part I would highly recommend this training to anyone wanting to further their practice and to share with their students. Thank you so much X

March 7, 2019. yogilizzy Tripadvisor review for H20 Yoga and Meditation centre: The 55 hour Yin Yoga Teacher training was exceptional
I recently completed Claire’s 30 hour online Yin Yoga. The timing for this wonderful self-study invitation has overlapped perfectly with where I’ve been lately in my journey of growing and healing.
Thank you Akirayoga for the beautiful space you created and held.
I appreciated the ways you modeled the power of silence and going inwards, of listening with our entire body.
I love that it included Taoism, dharma, Chinese medicine, this course uncovered the answers I was searching for. It opened the door to the experiences I needed in order to find my next step. Namaste! ❤
