yoga for peaceful minds and happy bodies
I first joined Claudia’s classes when I was deep into training for my first marathon to improve my strength and flexibility. I have since completed six running events at marathon distance or longer and can honestly say that the first one (and only one so far where I have supplemented my training with yoga practice due to a nasty wrist-break sustained when out running!) was the most enjoyable, easiest to complete and quickest to recover from. Needless to say, I have learnt the lesson and I am back in Claudia’s capable hands now I am training for my longest distance race yet – 100km. I fully recommend Claudia’s classes to all runners to supplement their training.
I have been to classes in several styles of yoga with many teachers over more than 20 years and I’ve found Claudia’s classes to be among the best I’ve ever been to. I always feel more calm, focussed and energised after the sessions. She gives clear guidance on the postures and useful personal assistance where necessary, and creates a fun, relaxed atmosphere in the classes.
Claudia is supportive and encouraging, professional, yet not too serious, which is the perfect approach for a class of apprehensive work colleagues of mixed abilities. I walk out feeling taller and energised.
Claudia is a caring and patient yoga teacher. Her instructions are always so clear and assuring that I find myself doing the poses that I have never imagined doing.
I joined Claudia’s classes as a beginner. Claudia has a calming yet encouraging teaching style, which immediately puts you at ease. She wants the best for you during practice and will correct postures in a supportive way. I always leave her class with a renewed energy and a clear mind, and I have noticed my flexibility increasing as a result of regular attendance.
Claudia is a pleasure to have as a teacher and always makes sure to be aware of any injuries individuals are working with. I myself have a long term tendon issue and my Osteopath seemed very pleased with my progress, and is now confident to increase the time frame between my treatments. I would highly recommend attending Claudia’s classes.
Claudia is my kind of Yoga teacher. Her class comprises of all sorts of shapes, ages and levels of flexibility so I am not made to feel over sixty (despite the concessionary rate) by some trendy twenty year old Houdini hippy type. No, the atmosphere she creates in her class is uncompetitive, non judgemental with an emphasis on doing what feels right for the individual within the Yogic discipline. She is full of praise and encouraging in her teaching style, modest and unpretentious but skilled, she comes over as being a good person. I like her and her approach to Yoga.
I have enjoyed your classes very much. I find they are very well balanced between being challenging and energising and relaxing at the same time. I find myself calm after the class but with a clear head and clear thoughts! Your teaching seems incredibly encouraging and inclusive for all.
I am a relative beginner to yoga, but have tried several different classes. Comparing Claudia to the other instructors, I can say she is very precise in her instructions, brings a bit of humour to her class and the ‘flow’ type of yoga she teaches gives you a great workout. Highly recommended.
Claudia’s classes have been fantastic. Claudia continually explains how to adjust positions to ensure we get the most out of our practice; pushing ourselves but always finishing up feeling wonderful.
I have really enjoyed being a regular at Claudia’s class. She adapts her style to suit the needs of the class and is able to work to different strengths at the same time. Since starting this class I have noticed that I have gained strength, particularly in my upper body, and feel more chilled out too!
Claudia’s class combines movement, breath, spirituality, and philosophy. Claudia has a great presence which makes her a natural teacher, she is mindful and approaches each student individually.
The class was superb. It was a great balance of energising and peaceful, really well tailored for our team, and set us up wonderfully for the day.
Claudia’s manner inspired confidence and influenced a lovely calm atmosphere. The session was enjoyable as well as literally stretching. The closing meditation was a gentle transition back to my daily routine. What a start to Monday...
It was the perfect way to start a planning day. The yoga session left us relaxed, refreshed and thinking clearly.
