From a childhood in the green hills of rural Devon to the last 20 years in vibrant south London, Claudia has travelled widely. It was her first trip to Asia in 2006 that sparked her interest in eastern philosophies and to starting a more regular yoga practice. Finding Vajrasati yoga in 2013 yoga was life changing and since then yoga has been a part of her every day life.
Claudia has been teaching regular yoga classes since 2016 and completed a 2 year 500 hour Vajrasati yoga teacher training course in 2017. With continued self study of yoga philosophy, Patanjali’s yoga sutras, the saiva tantra, anatomy and meditation, Claudia also regularly attends workshops and CPD courses to continue her learning.
“Yoga brings all of the benefits of relieving physical tension, calming the mind, increasing strength and flexibility and triggers the parasympathetic nervous system giving us much needed time in our rest and digest function. Beyond this, teaching yoga for me means pointing students to a spacious, absorbing practice that encourages a complete letting go and dropping in, with self-acceptance and investigation. In this way we become more present and have an opportunity to lose ourselves and disappear in the moment completely, reappearing as our own true nature.”
