About me

” You find peace not by rearranging the circumstances of your life, but by realising who you are at the deepest level” – Eckhart Tolle

Hey, I’m Claire, yogini and tantrika, and I’ve been on wellness and spiritual journey since my late teens, when I stumbled upon my first yoga class through curiosity.  Since then, I’ve had many life experiences which have led me to my calling, some have been wonderful, some have not.  Through my experiences, I can safely say that I’m passionate about helping women to connect to their authentic, ecstatic radiance and well-being.  For me, it is what the planet needs right now more than ever – radiant, connected, ecstatic women, full of health and wellness!

It was at University when studying for a business degree that I became very interested in exercise and nutrition, but most importantly, it was the connection that I had made between how great I could feel when exercising and eating healthy foods, compared to when I wasn’t.  Which was a lot of the time at that stage of my hedonistic life!

After university I decided to make the leap and train as a personal trainer and in 2005 I first began teaching as a group fitness instructor and personal trainer in London’s busy city gyms.

In 2006 in set-up my own business, and also suffered a back injury which led me into practising yoga consistently.  Back then, I practiced as a way of improving my flexibility from all of the group fitness classes I was teaching, and healing my back-injury and also, managing the stresses and strains of being a solo-preneur and running my own business.   I did not know it at the time, but this was just the tip of the iceberg of what yoga had to offer!

In 2009 I traveled to Goa, India to study Hatha and Ashtanga Yoga at The Ayurvedic Natural Health Centre, where I completed my first 200HR training.  On my return home I began teaching Yoga straight away in gyms, studios and offices across London.  I now teach full-time private lessons and classes and I run my wellness practice and business online from my home in Muswell Hill, London.

I’ve previously taught on-site classes and private lessons at clients premises in the City of London, along with classes for studios in London.  I have taught in peoples home’s and set-up my own classes too.  I’ve also mentored newly qualified yoga teachers who were just starting out.

I love learning and consider myself a lifelong student, I’m currently studying Tantra which is really setting my soul on fire!  I also have a passion for Ayurveda and plant-based cooking and lifestyle and I love introducing people to them.

One of the things I love about being a wellness practitioner, is working with women and helping them to relieve the stresses and strains of modern life through the essential arts of Yoga, Tantra, movement, diet, breath-work, crystals, cacao and meditation.  Once we’ve removed the stresses and strains, I love seeing her authentic natural radiance shine though.  I’d love to meet-with, and work-with you one day too and help you with your transformation!

You can work with me online via Skype or Zoom.  The One-to-one sessions or private instruction that I offer is a great way to really develop your own practice, do healing and make progress at a pace that suits you.  We can customize a unique package to suit your individual requirements.  Our sessions can be tailored to a time that works for you.

It’s a great resource that can be used alongside regular classes to really enhance your learning experience and help you to have a break-through, particularly if you’re pregnant, injured or have something specific that you would like to learn about, uncover, practice, heal or work towards.
