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 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.


It's was a great experience to take my Yin yoga teacher training with Claire Green in Yoga Dunia. Audrey was very generous and she prepare the best breakfast ever! You feel you been taking care when people so lovely is in front of the organization. The training was one of my best experiences Claire is a gentle soul, and a loving one. If you feel you need to be kind with yourself she is going to teach you. Thank you both!

This 55 hour course is absolutely amazing! The content and practices are so engaging and enjoyable and everything is totally relevant to the learning of yin yoga and Chinese medicine. Akirayoga’s Claire is so passionate about her teaching and this shines through in every class. I recommend this yin yoga teacher training to anyone seeking to deepen their understanding of yin. Facilitated by Yoga Dunia in their beautiful shala, I cannot recommend them any more highly. Beautiful atmosphere, beautiful food, comfortable and authentic accommodation.

I just completed my 200hr Yin-Yang Yoga Teacher Training with Yoga Dunia and could not recommend the course more highly. I learnt so much not only about teaching but also about my own practice, met so many amazing people including Audrey, Pilu and Claire who run the course, and got to live on the beautiful island of Nusa Lembongan for a month. If you're thinking about signing up for teacher training do it, you won't regret it!

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!
