Freedom of movement, inner calm and balance
My holistic practice aims to help you reconnect with your body and mind.
Foster inner calm, experience deep relaxation, develop physical strength, increase mobility, stamina and focus, and relieve your stress – achieving balance within and without.
My teaching is rooted in Hatha Yoga and Restorative Yoga, and has evolved to incorporate freedom of movement, accommodating all body types, and respecting each person’s body structure and journey.
With my training and own personal experiences, I offer you a practice that helps you to gently unlock your body’s ability to move, change and heal. You will experience a fluid, supportive, nurturing and revitalising practice. I encourage body awareness and mindfulness to help all who work with me embrace their unique body structure and safely access the healing benefits of yoga.
Having worked with different age groups from teenagers to senior adults, injury rehabilitation, and adults with special needs, I welcome anyone who wishes to practise with me.
Allow yoga to work for you, regardless of your age, ability or mobility.
Claire has an exceptional skill in teaching yoga. Her classes are a sublime experience of working with each individual and their own unique body and ability. Not to be missed. Truly.

Claire is a fantastic teacher, and she has tailored her class to accommodate my lower back and shoulder problems. Claire’s support and warmth have motivated me to include yoga into my daily schedule.

Having spent the past 17 years learning yoga in New Zealand I was anxious to find a teacher that was able to offer me a yoga practice that incorporated all that I had previously learnt and help me to expand my practice even further. I was so thankful to find Claire after my move to Portugal – she has been a wonderful teacher giving me all that I had hoped in a yoga class. She is gentle and empathetic to individuals’ needs, offering alternative poses if needed for beginners and encouragement for those who want to explore a pose further. She is passionate and committed to her yoga and the needs of her students. Her classes take you through a journey of mind, body and spirit so that each and every sector has been attended to leaving you feeling the peace that yoga offers from a class well taught.
