Claire has been practicing, studying, and teaching yoga since 1999. Like many fitness enthusiasts, she was initially drawn to yoga for its physical benefits of strength, balance, and flexibility. Once Claire realized that serenity, peace of mind, and true happiness were predominant results of the practice, she was hooked.
An E-RYT-500, Claire’s classes are dynamic vinyasa flows, combined with fun, upbeat music. She loves to encourage students to find the lightness and the joy in their own practice. Claire is currently continuing her education, studying with Rod Stryker’s ParaYoga program, and she leads international and domestic yoga retreats every year. In addition to her yoga credentials, Claire is a certified Pilates instructor and Reiki Level 2 Practitioner. Mind-body fitness is her passion. Practice with her online at www.yogadownload.com.
In January 2010, Claire was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer. Yoga aided her healing throughout treatment and recovery. She earned her Yoga for Cancer Therapy certification and now also teaches classes specifically for people living with cancer. Learn more at www.oceansoulyoga.com.
