A Little More About Me
Activate Your Inner Peace
My name is Claudia and I live now in Hove and I have been giving yoga classes internationally since 2004. I am registered with the UK Yoga Alliance Professionals as a senior level experienced yoga teacher. Having lived in so many countries reflects in my experience and approach to yoga. I have experience with different bodies and minds.
I started to teach on a little massage parlour on Ko Tao in Thailand 2004 giving my first yoga courses after graduating from a second teacher training in India with a senior Iyengar Teacher. Level 2. I called this course "Dive deeper into your yoga practice - since Ko Tao is an island frequented by divers. Before that I worked for an international NGO, learning about empowerment and justice and how to empower people.
I volunteered for Amnesty International in the Columbia department and when living in Spain I worked with former drug and alcoholic addicts helping them to rehabilitate. I gave gentle yoga therapeutic workshops and relaxation techniques.
In India, I volunteered and worked with a local NGO giving yoga classes to deprived children.
My classes stress emphasis on self-awareness and involve a mindful flow adapting yoga postures to a modern body and learning step by step in a safe and enjoyable way.
In all my classes I ensure empowerment of oneself and encourages self-inquiry. Sometimes through intention, meditation, pranayama or mantra the mind quietens and prepares us for an energetic meditative flow. Yoga is a way of life and how to apply this wisdom in everyday life.
I have completed three teacher trainings and continue to learn, study and inquire.
My yoga journey took me from London to the birthplace of Yoga India in 2003.
I studied with certified Ashtanga Yoga Teachers, senior Iyengar Teachers, Jivamukti, Synergy Yoga and many more.
Yoga for me is connecting on a deeper level.. I have worked in prestigious yoga studios in Jerez and Barcelona and have given many workshops and coordinated retreats.
My first yoga teacher training was with Godfrey Devereux in Dynamic Yoga in 2003, second one with Karin O'Bannon Iyengar Style in 2004, third one with the AEPY which belongs to the European Wheel of Yoga. I also studied the Synergy Yoga Approach by Simon Borg Olivier and Bianca Machliss having completed the advanced yoga fundamentals and applied Anatomy and Physiology of Yoga Courses.
