Claire’s Yoga Biography

Claire began her yogic path at aged 12 when she was introduced to Transcendental Meditation and basic Pranayama by a forward thinking doctor.

Once qualified as a lawyer in Scotland she backpacked to Australia where the yoga journey continued. Firstly with Pranayama and Meditation and later with Hatha Asana practice.

Having immersed herself in Hatha yoga for the last 15 years Claire has developed her own unique and powerful style of asana practice.

Lance has been and remains Claire’s main mentor. She has also been taught by today’s other leading lights, having completed teacher trainings with Louisa Sears, Donna Farrhi and Simon Morocco. More recently she attended the BKS Iyengar Institute in Pune to study with BKS Iyengar and his family.

Anatomy is one of the core subjects which Claire teaches on the teacher trainings having had an avid interest in the body and mind and how the practice of yoga can help and heal the body and mind.

Philosophy is another of her core subjects in the teacher training syllabus having been taught by Phil Lemke and also studying the subject extensively herself. She has a great interest in the old as well as the modern day philosophers such us Eckart Tolle, Pema Chodrin, Deepak Chopra and Byron Katie.

Claire also teaches Voice Dynamics on the teacher trainings.  She is also a qualified Barrister and has studied the power of voice for many years as a professional speaker. Claire has seen the effect a powerful voice can have on people and their lives and in her teaching attempts to instil in the students the methods which can improve their speech and tone so that they can become better teachers.

Claire was born in Scotland and now lives with her husband and two children in Byron Bay.
