Go beyond the muscles, deep into the connective tissue of the body. Access the healing benefits of this practice.
Sequences are floor-based and consist of holding stretches for a period of time, targeting the joints, ligaments, bones and fascia. Props may be used to accommodate different body types and levels of intensity in the practice. It is a very effective method of releasing physical tension, promoting better circulation and improving mobility.
Partnering the physical aspects of the practice with mindfulness and pranayama (breath-work), cultivates a deeper connection and experience, and can help to alleviate mental and emotional stress.
I give you time and space to explore and respect the fact that every ‘body’ is different. Under my guidance, you are encouraged to work to your boundaries, listen, go within, and approach your practice from a place of intuition, feeling your way into movement, rather than thinking it.
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. I would highly recommend Claire to anyone seeking relief from the deleterious effects that a stressful world places on our minds and bodies.
