  • Claire Green – Course Facilitator Lead Trainer


  • Senior Yoga teacher, yoga therapist & passionate yogi, from her first encounter with yoga she was hooked, & 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 of a yin practice. Passionate about 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. Claire sees her role as to guide you to listen to your own subtle messages of the body & directing you as to how to respond offering tools for re-balance & teaching you the way to implement these tools within your own self practice & teaching. Her teaching experience involves British Wheel of Yoga Foundation course trainings, Yin yoga teacher trainings, retreats, workshops, group classes, privates, pregnancy, postnatal, myofascia release, yoga therapy, as well as offering free classes to people with physical, mental & emotional difficulties or who wanted to improve their community links, accessing classes through the Adult Education Service in England. She incorporates both Yang (Vinyasa/ Hatha) & Yin/Myofascial techniques practices. You will be trained to develop your own self-practice, create balanced Vinyasa & Yin sequences, teach safely & confidently, whilst gaining a deeper insight of the yogic philosophy of life which goes beyond the asana. This training will not only give you the tools to live a better life & share your gift of yoga to the world, but it will also offer a powerful reflective insightful personal journey. Claire has over 1,200 hours of teacher training & 16 years of teaching experience; completing 500 hours with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2005; Birthlight pregnancy yoga training in 2009. She gained the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course Teacher Trainer certification in 2011 delivering British Wheel of Yoga Hatha yoga based teacher training.
