Yin Yoga Selfcare
Yin Yoga Selfcare Short Courses
The seasons are attributes of Qi & the Yin & Yang five transitional elemental energy cycles, known as the 5 elements.
As both receivers & contributors of collective Qi, we too can become affected by the changing of seasons which can adversely affect our sense of well-being.
Within TCM principles, this physical interconnectivity is through our internal organ system & energetically through the Meridian system.
Seasonal Yin Yoga Self-care is a personal Yin Yoga tool-kit for each elemental season. You will learn everything related to staying physically healthy, including understanding your organ health & how it connects to your physical & emotional well-being, the related Meridians, a collection of all the Yin Yoga asana we can incorporate, in addition to full 90-minute practices & embodied meditations.
There are healthy season nutrition/recipes, crystal healing, practical lifestyle suggestions & how we can better manage the associated, often difficult, emotions.
Each course offers you contemplative time to do a personal ‘check in’, & reflect on how you are taking care of yourself during natures cycles. Whilst also offering all the practical guidance in how you can come back to your centre.
I offer five separate Yin yoga seasonal self-care short courses.
Yin Yoga Selfcare for Spring
Spring is when the wood energy arises, associated with movement & fluidity, a time for new growth & fresh starts. We now emerge ready with our creative energy after our restoration period during the winter months. This short course will encourage you to listen to your body’s messages, bring movement to your asana, cultivating curiosity & evoking new growth to move forward.
Yin Yoga Selfcare for Summer
As we fold into summer, so does the wood energy of spring, move into the full Yang energy of fire. This is the most energetic phase & where action takes place. Summer energy is our time to expand, feel motivated & abundant. Within this course you will be encouraged to ignite your inner flame, connect your heart center to new possibilities, & opening into your personal power to create.
Yin Yoga Selfcare for Late Summer.
As our fire energy begins to cool, we move into the earth’s elemental energy, the late summer season. Earth is the aspect of all the energies in harmony, the Yang energies of spring & summer & Yin energies of autumn & winter. Late summer reminds us to find our center, & to develop trust.
You will be encouraged to slow down, listen, & build confidence in your body’s innate intelligence. Consciously shifting into surrender energy.
Yin Yoga Selfcare for Autumn.
The autumn season is when the energy of metal prevails, metal is the energy of accumulation & releasing waste, leaving only the essence behind. Autumn reminds us of the need for shredding what is no longer needed. Just with valuable & precious minerals & metals, you too will be encouraged to discover your sense of self-worth & value. To see harmony as the already present possibility, embodying our personal experiences & connecting to what is deep inside.
Yin Yoga Selfcare for Winter.
Winter is the energy associated with the water element; water is reflective, cooling, inward energy. A time for rest & rejuvenation, during which energy is conserved. With the spirit of winter, you will be encouraged to fully let go & develop courage as you practice the balance of effort & surrender.
When we learn to let go, we can shift from the sympathetic nervous system to the parasympathetic side and experience a calming release. We move from anxiety & hyper-stimulation to down-regulation, and our digestion, immune system, & other essential systems are restored.

I just completed the online yin yoga teacher training and I am very happy with this experience. The content is great, you will learn a lot about the concept of Chinese Medecine, the elements, the meridians, and much more! All very well explained and detailed! I was scared to feel not comfortable teaching a yin yoga class with online training but the professionalism and experience of Claire made me feel confident enough to teach. Claire is a great teacher, I could feel she put all her heart and soul in this course. Thank you Claire
I just completed my online yin yoga teacher training with Claire . The course was very neat, easy to follow and she explained really well. I really enjoyed learning with Claire. She is very good teacher. Loved how she delivered the course, calm voice and lovely settings. Also all manuals are very detailed and clear, I have them in my Ipad so that I can read anytime along with my notes. I am looking forward to future learning with Claire. Thank you very much for putting all together.
The experience has been really amazing. I recommend new yoga teachers to take this course for deeper understanding about yin yoga. Claire explained all the connections to the physical body very well and the content was great value for money. Also, all the practice guided sessions provided gives us a chance to experience it ourselves before teaching it to the class. Loved it.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share this valuable knowledge and practices. I gained so much wisdom. I very much enjoyed the practices and meditations. In the process filling my own cup, to be able to share from the overflow! Namaste, Corne
The online yin yoga teacher training was fantastic. It is well structured and you are able to work through the content very easily. The manual contained all the information from the lectures and really helped to deepen the content and it is very helpful to study and review the content intensively. For me as a Yin Yoga practitioner, this course provided a lot of valuable new theoretical and practical content. It now strengthens me to share Yin Yoga with other people. The teacher Clare has a very pleasant voice and learning with her is so comfortable. Thank you very much for this wonderful course. Maria (Reiki Master)
The online yin yoga teacher training was informative and well-paced. There isn’t anything repetitive which I appreciate because it makes me feel like I’m getting my money’s worth. Lots of information to fully digest and I feel my understanding is so much broader now. Also, the manuals are a great learning tool and I’m glad they’re a part of the course
Wonderful program, good quality videos, lighting and sound. Many of the courses I have completed on other platforms have terrible video quality. Thank you, I would recommend this course to others if they are wanting to learn how to teach yin yoga and to just get the confidence to move forward in their journey. As well it is a great course for self improvement and just taking the time out to reconnect with your own mind and body.
I recently completed Claire’s online yin yoga teacher training. The timing for this wonderful self-study invitation has overlapped perfectly with where I’ve been lately in my journey of growing & healing. Thank you Akirayoga for the beautiful space you created & held. I appreciated the ways you modeled the power of silence & going inward, of listening with our entire body. I love that it included meridians, 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!
I had an amazing yin yoga online teacher training from Claire. She is not just only a knowledgeable & experienced teacher, but also a caring & 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 & 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.
I completed my Yin yoga online teacher training with Claire. The experience was amazing. I got so much from the training on a personal level. Having always had a lot of Yang energy this gave me a deep feeling of balance & how to create this for others. I really fell in love with Yin & the deeper work it does on a physical & emotional level. I would Highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to teach yin or go deeper into the practice. Claire is wonderful, compassionate & so knowledgeable.
Extraordinary knowledge in Yin Yoga. My Teacher Claire Green is amazing she really changed me into positive pathway in reaching my future goal. Thank you so much for everything & love you always, Namaste
I had the most amazing time learning from Claire in the yin yoga online teacher training. She has a great knowledge of yoga in general & especially in yin yoga. She has a great way to provide her knowledge & to bring the theory into practice. I even learned a lot of things to integrate into my yang hours & 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 & teachings.
After not long completing Yin yoga online teacher training with Claire… words can not express the gratitude I feel. On so many levels. I loved every minute of it. Claire is an incredible instructor, teacher & mentor. I would whole heartily recommend any of Claire’s retreats or training as she has a wealth of knowledge & her energy is so inspiring. She has the ability to transform & bring out the best in oneself. A very special soul indeed.
I did the Yin YTT with Claire. Claire is a very experienced & competent teacher. I love her authenticity & her positive energy. She provided well structured & clear information during the theory lectures. Claire guided us through different practical classes which were designed in a way that we learned to respect & get to know our own body & mind better. This served as a foundation for our own authentic teaching & a deeper understanding of the Yin Yoga theory. Highly recommended!
