I have had yoga in my life since I was a small child, my Mum studied to become a yoga teacher herself in the 1980s. I have always been interested in health and fitness and always incorporated yoga asana in my exercise regime, but became more interested in all aspects of yoga including the history and yogic philosophy after the birth of my first son in 2005. I took him to Mother and Baby yoga classes and began to fully understand all the benefits of yoga – not just the physical.
I then decided to train to become a yoga teacher just like my Mum! I trained with The British School of Yoga and qualified as a Hatha Yoga Instructor in 2007 – also completing a course in pre and post natal pregnancy yoga. I hold a certificate in Ashtanga Yoga and Children's Yoga Teaching as well as Yoga Therapy Level 3 and Advanced Teacher Training. I have also completed the Cosmic Kids Yoga Teacher Training. I continue to study and attend yoga workshops regularly. I have studied yoga functional anatomy for a year and completed an Edx Harvard anatomy course. I have recently completed another anatomy course run by Susi Hately.
I teach 8 classes per week, mostly in churches although I do teach at DW Fitness, Brooklands twice a week as well as providing cover for other teachers. One of my classes is particularly suited to seniors as I include chair postures for those with limited mobility. I also teach a Parent & Toddler class and I really believe that yoga can be for everyone.
I continue my practice daily, and enjoy a wide variety of different styles, but my favourite classes to attend are the ones taught by my Mum!

I have been going to Claire's Thursday night yoga class now for the last 18 or so months. I never miss a session. This is because Claire teaches yoga to an exceptional standard. She is very welcoming and she makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable. I love every yoga class Claire teaches from start to finish.
