Meet the Teachers

Claire Green – Yin Teacher Trainer

If you are at the stage where you wish to develop your own practice, learn more about yoga and all its aspects, but are not ready or do not wish to become a certified yoga teacher yet then this course is also for you. We understand it can be difficult to find the time to learn and practice all the elements of yoga, so this is an opportunity to do so without becoming a yoga teacher.

If this is you, we do recommend you to have practiced any style of yoga for at least six months, as this will make it easier for you to develop a regular asana, pranayama, and meditation practice. You will be able to follow exactly the same schedule as those who are choosing to become certified, without the necessity to complete the final test paper and the student teaching labs.

To teach yoga authentically, you do require a minimum of 200 hours, in order to gain appropriate insurance. Therefore, although yoga teaching is not officially regulated, it is wise to gain this base number of hours before undergoing teaching (unless it is for friends, family and others that understand your experience and teaching certificate hours).  

During this intensive course, you will practice two hours twice a day Yinyang, Yin yoga and Restorative Yoga. Do not worry if you have health mis-alignments or injuries, please just let us know. Yin yoga and restorative are particularly healing for the body.

Yoga Dunia
5 reviews
Yoga studio offering drop-in classes, workshops, retreats, and yoga teacher trainings on the paradise island of Nusa Lembongan, Bali, Indonesia. Yoga Dunia is located on the magical island paradise of Nusa Lembongan, just a short 30-minute boat ride from beautiful Bali. A small, peaceful island, Nusa Lembongan is covered with pristine white sand beaches, warm turquoise waters, and lush jungle. Just as beautiful as Bali, but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the tourism crowds, Nusa Lembongan is the perfect place to escape to for a transformational spiritual journey through yoga.


Yogia Dunia is a sweet little yoga studio on the beautiful Nusa Lembongan in Bali. The whole experience from beginning to end was easy to navigate with great communication from the management at Yogia Dunia. They arranged the accommodation which was perfectable adequate for the duration of the Week at the studio. I was in single accommodation only a few minutes walk from the studio and luckily had air conditioning as it was very hot in December! The small class numbers meant we had excellant "one on one" time and feedback from our teacher Claire Green (who is delilghtful and extremely knowledgable about Yin Yoga). It was a pleasant change to be away from the Large and more impersonal Yoga studios where you get lost in the numbers and I felt that we all benefited from this very personal experience, Overall I loved the course and would recommend it to anyone who is starting off the fabulous journey of YIN yoga.
I had wonderful time and more knowledge beyond my expectation. I am confident with my ability to teach Yoga now. The advice and suggestion from Teacher Tomomi Kojima is really useful. She changed my way of thinking to be concise and accurate, thanks, love, blessings for her and the loved ones, and all the best as always, Namaste _/)(\_
I had wonderful experience and extra 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 and love you always, Namaste _/)(\_
Just finished a great Yin Teaching training with Claire Green at Dunia Yoga. The space was very relaxing and the staff were very helpful. We were fed yummy breakfasts each morning and Audrey was supportive with any needs. I highly recommend Claire for a complete Yin Yoga experience and the centre Dunia Yoga.
The YTT at Yoga Dunia was a fantastic experience. All of the team there are lovely, friendly and supportive and it was a fabulous environment for the course. The breakfasts were especially delicious with so much fresh tropical fruit - I've been missing them ever since! The emphasis on structural alignment has given me the confidence to teach knowing that my class are practising asanas safely which is really important for me. We also had a lot of teaching practice starting in the first week, which really helped to prepare us for the 'real' world. A fantastic experience and a great beginning to my journey as a yoga teacher - thank you so much.
