Clare was first introduced to yoga when she was a little girl as her Mum practised every day. She’d dabbled on and off over the years but then started attending a class at Triyoga in London to help her deal with bouts of anxiety and a stressful job.

In 2010 Clare completed a 200 hour yoga teacher training course with Sivananda in the Indian Himalayas.

She’s been teaching ever since – at the Sivananda centre in Putney, in various village halls and privately teaching groups of hefty blokey athletes preparing for Iron Man triathlons.

Clare has completed training in pregnancy yoga and also in teaching people with ME/CFS with Fiona Agombar through Yoga Campus.

In 2012 Clare completed a 500 hour training with Michel Besnard in Thailand through Yogasana. On the course, she learnt how to teach yin yoga and studied acroyoga. She studies yin with Norman Blair and teaches yin classes and workshops in Hertfordshire.

She also teaches privately in people’s homes. If you have a visual impairment or have ME/CFS and live in Hertfordshire she can help you.

She’s currently reduced her teaching schedule as she’s had a baby.

I loved learning yoga with Clare. I’ve been struggling with ME for nearly 30 years and the idea of yoga has always been an attractive one but I just didn’t believe I could tackle it without collapsing. Clare really did understand my need to go slowly, gently and with loads of time just to relax and breathe. Her approach was extremely empathic, calm and encouraging – I really can recommend her to you.
