What Students Say
Booking for the trip was seamless all information was clear and I was well prepared. I booked accommodation as part of my course & stayed just next door to the studio in a guest house – very convenient! Yoga Dunia provided very helpful advice on boat bookings to the island & everything went smoothly. I’m so satisfied with my experience, I will be back again!

Teacher Claire’s teaching style, her communication skills, her mastery of the training materials & the subjects she teaches are amazing & the class environment is amazing, comfortable & clean. Claire’s teaching materials are professionally thought out & of value that you won’t find anywhere else. Thank you Audrey who arranged all the learning conditions with us, Tia who taught the morning lesson in accordance with Claire’s theory & Tia who sings beautifully. Yin Yoga is closely related to ancient Chinese traditional medicine & it’s amazing how the human mind & body are connected. Loved that many good results could be achieved by practicing no force, no violence, no pain Yin Yoga poses. Our school team, classmates & all the students came from different countries. I think that after participating in a 100 h Yin Yoga teacher course, I invariably incorporate the rhythm of the Yin side into myself and my lessons.

Claire is very clear, sweet and calm, and the information provided is very much like her I have been teaching Yoga for 11 years and I have learnt a lot of new interesting things that my students are going to love. I recommend this course to all other Teachers out there who are looking to improve themselves and improve the quality of their yoga classes. Thank you Claire.

I just completed the Yin Yoga and Chinese Medicine online course 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

The experience has been really amazing. I recommend new yoga teachers to take this course for a deeper understanding about yin yoga. Claire explained all the connections to the physical body very well and the content was great value for money.

The course 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)

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 more about 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 Yin Yoga online. 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 inward—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!

I completed my Yin Yoga training with Claire on Gilli Air. The experience was amazing. We deleted deep into the practice of Yin and Yang and covered everything form sequencing to philosophy. 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 and how to create this for others. I really fell in love with Yin and the deeper work it does on a physical and emotional level. I would Highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to teach yin or go deeper into the practice. Claire is wonderful, compassionate and so knowledgeable.

I recently completed my 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.

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.

She provided a very safe place to take us on the beautiful journey of yin yoga.

Thanks so much Claire for being a great human and for sharing your knowledge with me. Hugs

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.

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.

Carlos Rivera Book Yoga Retreats H20 Yoga and Meditation Center Review September 2019 .
I completed the Training 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.

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.

As a qualified teacher I came here to learn more about Yin yoga as i wish to start teaching this style. The Yin Yoga Teacher Training has left me feeling so inspired and motivated to continue this journey. Everything from the structure and knowledge base, to the yoga center on a idyllic island was perfect. Thank you.
This was my second visit to H2O to attend the 55 hour Yin Teacher training course with Claire. 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.
The teacher training 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 are so very clear and systematic, 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 truely recommend the training to anyone who wants a deep understanding of what yin yoga is, can mean for the body and can trigger in the mind. Powerful tool, thanks everyone!

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

H20 Yoga & Meditation Centre, Gili Air, Tripadvisor Reviewed May 3, 2018 via mobile Yoga therapy session with Claire
I attended private yoga therapy session with lovely instructor Claire from UK. I did not know what to expect but I definitely did not expect that it will be that good and so effective. Our session started with short consultation about my issues. I have had joints and hip “problems”. Claire checked on my body structure and directly knew where all the problems came from. She explained me my physiology (no doctor has ever told me things she did) and what I am supposed to do in order to release the pain in hips and knees. Then we did practice itself – she was very patient and guided me with deep understanding. During the practice she was also pointing out on connections between body and emotions, how certain emotions are stored in particular muscles. Could not be more real. She created ambiance that helped me to center and I could focus on my healing. The exercise she chose for me was very intensive but relaxing in the same time. Under precise instructions from Claire I felt like my body was letting go of everything that did not serve me anymore, my body was softening and the I was not able to hold tears when all the suppressed emotions were released. After session I felt very light and literally ” high”. Following Claire’s instruction I do not experience pain in my hips and knees anymore. I was sad that we were leaving island and I could not meet Claire anymore. It was highlight of my trip in Indonesia. Thank you Claire! Much love!

The beginners workshop with Claire allowed me to understand the details about each posture and how achieving this can help you improve your practice. I also book an extra yoga therapy session with Claire because I woke up with a stiff neck, she did such a good job helping me to let go all the stress and pain I was carrying in my shoulders and neck, and she taught me some exercise to practice by my self, and they have helped me a lot after I left Gili.

I’ve had so many treatments over the past decade for chronic physical pain & Claire’s sessions stood out to be of the best. She displayed a highly intuitive connection, with in depth anatomy knowledge & honest wisdom about the emotional causes behind the physical pain. I really appreciated Claire being able to treat me 3 days in a row at short notice. Plus a massive thankyou for even treating me on her day off. Her yin yoga class was also amazing!

Firstly, Claire who is a yoga teacher and some kind of massage guru (or maybe sports therapist). My partner and I wanted to practice some yoga bit I had read on here about Claire being great at helping/fixing back problems. At the time I had serval nots in my shoulder and was in agony, with limited movement in my shoulder. Claire took the evening yoga class and I mentioned to her about my shoulder, she did some manipulation during the class – this helped so much!! The following day I went back for some more work on my shoulder and I feel 100% better. Claire taught me some self management techniques as I am traveling around a bit for a few months!
H20 yoga and Meditation Centre Tripadvisor review.
I came to H2O Yoga to rehab my body and mind after recovering from a number of physical injuries, specifically shoulders and low back. Claire’s class focusing on alignment was a huge eye opener to my yoga practice and I am leaving this place with a deeper understanding of my body. Thanks to Claire, for the first time in three years I put my hands above my head without my arms going numb. The subtle but amazingly effective adjustments that she taught have been incredible and I am eternally grateful for her! Not only that, but she taught an awesome workshop getting down to the fundamentals of the postures which taught me even more and solidified what I learned from her in class. She also taught about the history of yoga and the yamas/niyamas which helped me identify negative patterns in my life and ultimately kickstarted me on an emotional journey I never anticipated going on before this place! Strongly recommend Claire for deepening your practice and self-love!
