YOGA with Claire

Claire is one of our external hirers and her classes are not included in our fitness membership, so please contact Claire directly for more details on her classes.

My interest in sports started early in life, revolving around horses, then at the age of 17 I began running and using the gym regularly and I have never really stopped.  

Whilst travelling through North America in the early 1990’s I qualified as a P.A.D.I scuba diver, which eventually led to a career as a Divemaster/ Underwater Videographer in the Cayman Islands. During that time, I trained as an aerobics instructor but running and the gym were still my passion.  

In the late 1990’s I qualified as a Health and Fitness Instructor and became a gym instructor at a Health Club in London. I subsequently became a personal fitness trainer in 1997 and later added 2 nutrition degrees and a diploma in sports nutrition to my portfolio. 

Because of a childhood dream, I began training for the British Stunt Register and became a Stuntwoman in 1999. This detour from my fitness professions still allowed me to pursue my love of sports, incorporating martial arts, sky diving, trampolining, rock climbing and fencing into a busy schedule.  

To bring some balance to my life I have dabbled in yoga, for over 20 years, but with greater commitment in the last 3 years. I qualified as a 200hr yoga teacher in 2016 and started teaching as soon as I finished my course. Although this is the beginning of my yoga teacher education, I already love to share my knowledge with other yogis as I continue down this path in my life.
