I recently completed Claire’s Yin Yoga online. The timing for this wonderful self-study invitation has overlapped perfectly with where I’ve been lately in my journey of growing and healing. Thank you Akirayoga for the beautiful space you created and held. I appreciated the ways you modeled the power of silence and going inward—of listening with our entire body. I love that it included meridians, Chinese medicine. this course uncovered the answers I was searching for. It opened the door to the experiences I needed in order to find my next step. Namaste!

I had an amazing Yin yoga training from Claire. She is not just only a knowledgeable and experienced teacher, but also a caring and compassionate life mentor. As english isn’t my mother language plus this is my first yoga training, at the beginning I was kind of scared of getting understand on all the lessons. However, her consistent encouragement and passionate truly inspiring me. The knowledge I’ve learnt from this training is more than I expected. Now I feel more confident to practice Yin on my own with awareness of what’s for me.

Emma Kavanagh

I completed my Yin Yoga training with Claire. The experience was amazing. I got so much from the training on a personal level. Having always had a lot of Yang energy this gave me a deep feeling of balance and how to create this for others. I really fell in love with Yin and the deeper work it does on a physical and emotional level. I would Highly recommend this course for anyone wanting to teach yin or go deeper into the practice. Claire is wonderful, compassionate and so knowledgeable.

Diana Pieper

I had the most amazing time learning from Claire in the yin yoga teacher training. She has a great knowledge of yoga in general and especially in yin yoga. She has a great way to provide her knowledge and to bring the theory into practice. I even learned a lot of things to integrate into my yang hours and personal practice. Out of the many ttc I have already done, I probably enjoyed this one the most. I would def come back to Claire if I want to deepen my yin knowledge and teachings.

Manuela Hiermer

I did the Yin YTT with Claire. Claire is a very experienced and competent teacher. I love her authenticity and her positive energy. She provided well structured and clear information during the theory lectures. Claire guided us through different practical classes which were designed in a way that we learned to respect and get to know our own body and mind better. This served as a foundation for our own authentic teaching and a deeper understanding of the Yin Yoga theory. Highly recommended!

Ing Spence

After not long completing Yin teacher training with Claire… words can not express the gratitude I feel. On so many levels. I loved every minute of it. Claire is an incredible instructor, teacher and mentor. I would whole heartily recommend any of Claire’s retreats or training as she has a wealth of knowledge and her energy is so inspiring. She has the ability to transform and bring out the best in oneself. A very special soul indeed.
