Relieve tense muscles, aching joints and general physical discomfort and tightness. Achieve inner calm, experience deep relaxation, and gently relieve stress and anxiety. I encourage body awareness and mindfulness to help you embrace your unique body structure and safely access the healing benefits of a functional yoga practice. I welcome anyone who wishes to practise with me.
My Functional Yoga approach is fluid, supportive and nurturing, accommodates all body types, and respects your body structure and journey. Practise Restorative Yoga, Slow Flow and Yin Yoga with me, and unlock your ability to move, change and heal. Explore how yoga can work for you, regardless of your age, ability or mobility.
Regain freedom and mobility by moving into postures that serve you and in a manner that respects how your body needs to move, not how you think it should move.
The practice of body awareness is simply 'listening' to your body.
Through this more intuitive approach to practising yoga, form a deeper connection to your body and 'self'. This method has proven to be invaluable for me with my own physical and emotional journey.

Claire’s calming presence and mellifluous voice, coupled with the slow and meandering movements from each pose to the next, leave you feeling a similar peace to that which you might experience after spending time in nature, away from all the usual trappings of the modern world. She provides variations for each pose, and consistently encourages you to do what feels right for your body. She is extremely open to feedback, and lets you know that she’s always there for a chat.

Claire's classes are a sublime experience of working with each individual and their own unique body and ability.
Not to be missed. Truly.

After receiving a diagnosis of arthrosis for my right hip, I asked Claire what I could do to release the tension, lessen the pain, and maybe even heal the hip. She prescribed a sequence of asanas aimed at stretching and opening the hip and told me to do the sequence daily. In fact, it has been so successful that I have been doing it twice daily; the tension and pain are gone, I am able to run, and I play football and innebandy weekly with no negative side effects. Claire has a gift for seeing the needs of a body and a depth of knowledge and understanding for how to address those needs. She also has the innate ability to structure body awareness in an individual, something that nearly all of us are lacking.
