Meet the Teachers

Claire Green – Yin Teacher Trainer

Teaching Methodology


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.

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.

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.


Such an amazing training, it completely exceeded my expectations! The trainer Claire Green was very knowledgeable and experienced. It was clear that Claire has developed a deep understanding of how yin yoga can be combined with Traditional Chinese Medicine and myofacial release to bring deep healing to the body, mind and soul. If you are considering this training be prepared to have a experiential journey of personal healing and reflection as you immerse yourself in both the theory and practical classes delivered in this course. We were blessed to start each day with a yoga class run by Thia. She had such a loving and empowering presence, and shared with us vinyasa, yin, pranayama and kirtan; a beautiful blend for our morning practice. The studio feels peaceful and is nestled between local Balinese residences and businesses. Such a relaxed and peaceful vibe, it's hard not to get lost in the magic of Lembongan. Gorgeous beaches, friendly people, sacred traditions. Booking for the trip was seemless and all information was clear and I was well prepared. I booked accommodation as part of my course and 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 and everything went smoothly. I'm so satisfied with my experience, I will be back again!

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 _/)(\_

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.
