A Natural Teacher

I am so in love with Claire's classes. She makes yoga fun; you will be working way harder than even you know! Her attention to detail and the tiny adjustments that make a huge difference has helped me benefit more from my practice. I can't leave out her voice. Soothing, kind, compassionate; she walks me home in every class. Thank you Claire!

A teacher who put her heart and soul in her students

I have been a student of Claire Liddle for a little more than 3 years . Claire has more than 500 hours of teacher training experience and is constantly looking to improve upon her yoga teaching capabilities. She is a one of a kind teacher who can reach to all kinds of students . She not only teaches you the agility and the balance which is required for Yoga but also the spiritual practices which are associated to bring about balance peach and harmony within you .

Unique

There is nobody quite like Claire in the yoga world. Her teaching style is totally unique. She makes each class a fun and joyous experience while simultaneously focusing on safety and alignment. Claire is extremely Knowledgeble yet is always striving to learn more so that she can expand her skill and sequences to broaden her students exposure a little more at each class. Each class is fresh and new. Claire challenges her students in such a gentle and playful manner that they easily progress to the next level with effortless ease. Claire is a kind and loving teacher who shares her joy of yoga and life freely with others.

Loving and Knowledgeable

I've taken a variety of Claire's classes over a few years and recommend her highly. She plans sequences and themes that keep classes fresh, with a great balance of comfort and expansion out of one's comfort zone. I appreciate her balance of spirituality, humor, and attention to the physical and emotional needs of the individual. I know when I attend her class that I am free to be ME and participate in the way that feels best to me moment by moment. She is confident in her knowledge and training, but holds each yogi's knowledge of their own body in the highest regard. She is also an easy going, unshakable, very amusing teacher. She is a well rounded teacher, able to tend to the needs of those new to yoga, or lifelong practitioners.

I love how Claire offers an inspiring and fully integrated approach to yoga. Infusing the spiritual aspects and principles of yoga, along with emphasis on body/mind connection and proper alignment, students are encouraged to develop a greater sense of Self-awareness both on and off the mat.
Her gentle, playful nature creates an atmosphere of joy and trust, and her extensive background, knowledge, and experience has contributed greatly to my growth as a yogi and as a person. I feel blessed and deeply grateful to have Claire as my teacher.
