What to expect

Chinese philosophy refers to yin and yang as two complementary energies that are interconnected and interdependent, creating all aspects of life. Yin energy is inward energy, passive, feminine, and cool. The masculine energy of yang is outward energy, active and heated; yin represents surrendering into what is, while yang represents activity and action.


Our yin practices involve holding positions that stress and renew the deep, dense connective tissues. The method includes using many variations and props within the postures to relax within the target area as we hold the pose for extended periods. Within this stillness, we can then become receptive and reflective to what is happening, within and around the body, while also noticing our reactions and responses. These long-held poses can often lead to physical and mental discomfort, opening an opportunity to learn to tolerate discomfort and surrender to what is. Despite looking easy, it is a resilience practice & has its challenges.


Yang yoga is a more energetic yoga practice that targets the muscular tissue and, through movement, creates heat. Muscles love to get warm; they are elastic and moist, so they appreciate this form of exercise and respond well to it. Rather than emphasizing surrender, our Yang practices promote action. By creating heat within the body, these styles increase blood flow, our circulation, build strength, stamina, & flexibility while helping you learn patience and endurance.


If we constantly push our lives forward and lead a very yang life, we can burn our energy rather than conserve it. On the other hand, if we overtly draw inwards, this can lead to a sedentary lifestyle; we can move away from being present and fall into the past. An overbalance of yin or yang can create disharmonies. They need to co-exist for our lives to be in balance. 


As yoga practitioners, we can often lose our sensitivity to the body's signals, focusing on achieving results rather than feeling. Therefore, it is essential to incorporate yin and yang styles to promote unity within our yoga practice. By exploring the contrast between the strength and power of a yang practice and the grace and surrender within a yin practice, you will learn how to implement a mixture of Yin and Yang practices throughout your yoga schedule and practice both Yin and Yang aspects within one class effectively.


As we blend both styles within this retreat, together with motivating workshops, you will leave with increased flexibility and strength; harmonious balance in both body, mind, and inspiration for your journey ahead.

Yoga Dunia

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 _/)(\_

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.
