Claire is our lead Hatha Yoga teacher on our adult yoga teacher training courses as well as having her own kids yoga teaching company. www.yogalini.org.za
Claire is passionate about Hatha yoga, believing that yoga should be accessible to all bodies. Claire was born with scoliosis that became progressively worse with sports. Desperate to move Claire tried everything, but nothing helped. Claire went to Alison West of Yoga Union in New York to learn Yoga for Back problems and everything changed. Claire is passionate about helping people, who may not be able to access modern vinyasa yoga physically, experience moving Yoga. Claire runs our Hatha Yoga section including Hatha Yoga for all, Back care Yoga, Pregnancy Yoga, Yoga when Injured and Kids Yoga
Claire is also a qualified Kids Yoga instructor, trained in “Kidding Around Yoga tm”. Kidding Around Yoga is a style of Yoga from the USA that encompasses the 5 branches of yoga in a clear engaging method. A typical KAY class gets the children singing, dancing, skipping, marching, jogging, laughing, hopping, limbo-ing, and storytelling all while practising Yoga to the original KAY music.
I also have my Yoga4Kids module 1 and 2 qualification which is endorsed by the Yoga Teachers Fellowship of South Africa. Combining both styles of teaching techniques gives me the tools to make my classes fun with maximum benefits to the kids.
