Claire was absolutely amazing. Her knowledge of yin was incredible. I learned so much from the classes. I am more confident in teaching yin yoga now. The class set up was fantastic. Highly recommend Claire.

About akirayoga - claire green

Yoga teacher and passionate yin yogi. From Claire’s very first encounter with yoga, she was hooked. She fell in love with the pure raw potential of the practice: the contrast between the strength and power of a yang practice compared to the grace and surrender within a yin practice and enjoys the beautiful flow between the two extremes.  Claire is passionate how yoga empowers people. Rather, than being a passive recipient, the student is actively engaged in the path to their own well-being. Her role, as a teacher, is to guide you to listen and be present to your own subtle messages your body offers and directing you to the tools to connect and re-balance; teaching you the way to implement these tools.

A grateful student of her vastly knowledgeable teachers.   Claire teaches a fusion of the styles that she has studied with a strong emphasis on using the whole body, and the breath to develop strength, essential for a Yang practice and the sacred balance of effort and surrender in the Yin practice. Her classes find equal emphasis on strength building of the mind, body and soul, as well as graceful acceptance hence how she found her name akirayoga – akira is sanskrit for graceful strength.

“Yoga is the journey of the self, through the self, to the self.”
–The Bhagavad Gita
