It was by chance that Claire walked into a Bikram yoga class while visiting New York City in 2003. As a former collegiate basketball player, she instantly fell in love with the novel challenge of yoga. It was not long after beginning yoga that she noticed this harmonious balance between flexibility and strength which improved her other athletic pursuits along the way. This change inspired her to deepen her yoga practice after completing law school. In 2010, Claire became a certified 200-Hour Power Vinyasa RYT. Spreading the peace, freedom, and joy that yoga brought to her she began by teaching community yoga classes with One Yoga Foundation in parks all throughout the county of Miami-Dade.
In 2013, she completed an additional 200-Hour Raja Yoga Teacher Training at 305 Yoga and Outreach. This exposed her to a whole realm of additional yoga lineages such as; Iyengar, Anusara, Ashtanga, Kundalini, and Skanda. In 2014, Claire became certified in Yin Yoga at the Urban Bliss School of Yoga which shifted and brought upon wholeness to her practice.
In 2016, she became certified in Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra with Jennifer Reis. This inspired and guided meditation practice revealed to her the incredible power to transform, heal and rejuvenate her body at the deepest levels. This left her inspired to learn more which led her to Rishikesh, India where she completed her 300-Hour Sattva Yoga Teacher Training under Anand Mehrotra in 2016. This is where her practice came full circle and taught her the incredible life changing power of moving subtle energy within the body.
Claire is a lifelong student and has continued to travel to India ten times over the last five years to study and take numerous master trainings at Sattva Yoga Academy, ride through the Himalayas on a motorcycle with her teacher Anand, learn Vedic Astrology, and teach at the annual Sattva Summit yoga festival. Yoga has taught her the beautiful union of power and grace in all areas of her life. This has influenced her inspiration of guiding her students through a series of stimulating asanas and deep relaxation. Claire seeks to share this balance of the body, mind, and spirit to inspire others to live in gratitude for the present moment on this incredible journey of life.
