Claire completed her 200-hour Yoga Alliance teacher training qualification with Katy Appleton, who has been a huge influence on both her own yoga practice and on her teaching. She then furthered her training under the hugely inspiring Paul Grilley, the founder of Yin yoga, who has not only given her the skills as a Yin yoga teacher but has also vastly expanded her knowledge on the wonders and complexities of the human anatomy. For Claire, yoga has been and remains an inspiring and exciting journey.
