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 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.

Free Yin Yoga Sequences & Meditations

Enjoy some free Yin yoga classes with me on Youtube.

We hold each yoga asanas for extended periods in Yin yoga to maximize a deep stretch into the fascia-focused areas. As we hold the pose, we can become more receptive & reflective to what’s happening within & around the body, in addition to noticing our reactions & responses to the stillness. Variations/props are offered to help you relax within the target area.

The practice encourages mindful, conscious breathing, listening to your body & observing the mind, returning you to a sense of wholeness.

Rebounds: Sometimes we do several shapes before a rebound, sometimes a rebound after every pose, sometimes long holds/rebounds & sometimes shorter holds/rebounds. Every class is slightly different, so you gain creativity within your practice.

Yin Yoga Flow – A flow of Yin yoga shapes & rebounds, includes one/three short Downward Dog Yang poses


In Chinese medicine, Qi/Ki/Prana/energy moves through a network of energy pathways called ‘meridians’ that interconnect with corresponding organs, tissues & cells.

There are twelve main meridians seen as the main points of energy storage & distribution. Within Traditional Chinese Medicine, an organ’s Qi/energy moves through that organ’s meridian & there is an inter-connectivity of our emotions & physical health where our emotions can impact the health of the body & vice versa. The twelve significant meridians consist of five Yin meridians: Heart, Spleen, Lungs, Kidneys, & Liver & five Yang meridians: the Small intestines, Stomach, Large intestine, Urinary bladder, Gallbladder; the Pericardium meridian, & the Triple Warmer, also known as the San Jiao meridian.

Each class sequence offers a specific or combinational meridian focus.


These are free yin yoga sequences that target the shoulders, chest, arms & spine. They will encourage blood & energy flow through these areas that tend to get constricted by how we physically carry ourselves & hold onto our mental/emotional ‘baggage.’ Promoting the opening of the upper body to create space at the heart center & restore a sense of peace where there may be anxiety. Six meridians begin or end in the fingers of the hands. They all pass through the shoulder, or armpit & six upper body meridians are the Heart, Small Intestine, Large Intestine, Lung, Pericardium, & Triple Warmer/San Jiao.


These are free Yin yoga sequences that focus on the lower body. The hips are an area that can often hold a lot of unconscious tension, old emotions & deep vulnerabilities, which can lead to a shortening of the tissues, pain, tightness, lack of mobility & tension.
With deep reflective stretches, these sequences will release lower back pain, hip, pelvis, groin & leg stiffness & reduce muscle soreness & discomfort.
The six meridians that begin or end in the lower body are the Liver, Gall Bladder, Kidney, Urinary Bladder, Spleen, & Stomach meridians.


These are free yin yoga sequences that include myofascial release techniques. There are many benefits to working with myofascial release techniques. These include reducing pain, releasing knots/trigger points, improving movement & flexibility, improving muscle function, enhancing circulation by breaking up the tight areas where blood flow may become restricted, & reducing exercise-related soreness.

Yin Yoga Therapy sequences are structured to create space for specific misalignments you may be experiencing within both body/mind. The class sequences will rejuvenate the body, clear the mind, open up the heart, & allow energetic healing to take place.

These classes are suitable for all levels of experience & ability.

Variations are given to suit all skeletal structures. Always listen to your body.
