Claire Green – Yin Teacher Trainer
Senior Yoga teacher, yoga therapist and passionate yin yogi, from her first encounter with yin yoga she was hooked and fell in love with the pure raw healing potential of the practice and the contrast between the strength and power of a yang practice compared to the grace and 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 guide you to listen to your own subtle messages your body gives and directing you as to how to respond offering tools for re-balance and teaching you the way to implement these tools within your own teaching. Claire has over 1,200 hours of teacher training and 15 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 the British Wheel of Yoga training.

With a small group of 20 maximum participants, this course offers a deeply transformative journey, by providing the theoretical tools for understanding the process & practical experiences in a safe & supportive space that will promote re-balancing of both mind & body.
The course is designed to teach you how to apply the principles of Yin yoga & Myofascial release techniques to yourself first, by using the daily lectures that explore theoretical key concepts, functional anatomy & analytical training in the Meridian system & teaching you how to apply these concepts to the daily Yin practices.
You will experience every Yin yoga asana & variations, MyoYin & restorative yoga, together with different meditation, pranayama & hand mudras, specifically structured to offer you something different each day.
Each day is themed with the elements & fundamental concepts explored within the lectures. We then apply these concepts to our physical practices.
The focus will be one of guidance and nurturing that allows you to open into your true personal experience, enrich your senses, teach you to listen & respond appropriately & return you to a more balanced nature.
You will have optional practice teaching with group teaching practicals within this training.
You will learn more about teaching yin yoga exploring group dynamics, considerations for one to one work, in addition to creating healthy boundaries & your role as a yoga teacher on & off the mat.
By the end of the training, you will have explored a broad range of techniques to support you progressing within your own personal practice by fully understanding the experience of yin yoga & Myofascial release. You will feel confident to offer these qualities to others within your teaching & will have a sound understanding as to your contribution as a yin yoga teacher. To build your student base, you will also explore how to incorporate both Yang & Restorative practices into your Yin yoga class.
The course is suitable for all levels of practitioners who both have a deep interest in the power of yin yoga and for those who have already established yoga teachers and wish to begin to teach this beautiful style.
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 misalignments or injuries, please just let us know. Yin yoga and restorative are particularly healing for the body.
Final assessment – you will have the opportunity of practical teaching assignments. This is not compulsory but will be offered to you within the safe and supportive teacher training group, to enable confidence in teaching to be gained.
