Claire has been practising yoga since 1999, teaching yoga since 2006, and in 2013, became an Anusara-Inspired™ yoga teacher. In 2006, Claire both became a mum for the the first time and completed her training with Simon Low at the Yoga Academy. Teaching and practicing during her pregnancy demonstrated the power that yoga has during this special time and inspired Claire to study with Birthlight’s founder, Francoise Barbira Freedman; she has been teaching perinatal yoga since 2007. Both her pregnancies and home births have fuelled Claire’s desire to share the power of the breath and the depth of connection that yoga during pregnancy provides. She seeks to support and nurture mothers throughout pregnancy, birth and beyond.
In 2014, Claire co-founded Trinity Yoga, who have designed and delivered a CPD around integrating pregnant and postnatal women into your yoga class.
Claire is drawn to teaching in the playful yet alignment focussed style of Anusara yoga, and aims to offer connection in class, not only with the inner world but also as part of a wider community. Her lighthearted approach belies her in-depth understanding of perinatal yoga, Anusara®, yoga for kids and the family, as well as therapeutic applications of yoga.
