yoga courses

I offer a variety of courses, with different focuses, available for a variable amount of time. Please scroll down to find out what is on offer and feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions, or would like any suggestions from me as suitability for you and where you are currently at on your path. If yoga and my approach is totally new to you I suggest you begin with ‘foundations of yoga’. Enjoy.

I love immersing in Clare’s themed sessions over several weeks. It’s so fulfilling to digest the richness of her offerings on a true journey of discovery. Her classes resonate and nourish on every level.

Foundations of Yoga

foundations of yoga

In this course I offer, in a clear and heartfelt way, the principles of yoga so that you experience the wonder, the potential, and the efficacy of the practice as it applies in your own life.

This course is for you if:

  • you are new to yoga. This is a sound starting point, providing a base for your next step, be it with me, with this method, or in another style of practice.
  • you have been practicing yoga for a while and want to ground yourself in a framework of perspective, alignment, and action that can help you further your practice.
  • you are wanting to engage with classes with me. This course gives a solid grounding to understand the ‘why’ of the language and cues used to guide you.

When you enrol for the course you will receive immediate access to all 5 sessions and will retain access for a full 6 weeks. Please give yourself time to assimilate the content of each session before moving on to the next one. In the studio, this course has been offered as a one session per week program, so that is a suggested approach to consider for this course.

elemental yoga

  • you are interested in a yoga journey exploring deeply the elements in you and all around you

Fascial Wellness Yoga

fascial wellness

 We are now seeing that everything is interconnected, we do not function as machines, and nor does the world. We can’t change or fix a part and ignore the whole. Fascia not only connects, it separates, allowing sliding and gliding between layers. We now know that in the lower back, at a microscopic level, the layers of fascia need to be free to move relative to one another to prevent lower back pain, one of the most pervasive issues of our time.

In this course we explore our practice as a way to maintain optimal fascial  health, function and vitality, enhancing the qualities of stability, freedom, fluidity, elasticity, sensitivity, and responsiveness.

When you enrol for the course you will receive immediate access to 10 classes. Five  ‘essential’ shorter and less challenging sessions and five  ‘expansive’ longer and more challenging sessions. From the date of purchase you will retain access for a full 10 weeks. 

This course is for you if:

  • you have a body, or from a yoga perspective, 5 bodies (koshas)
  • you are interested in lifelong wellness and vitality 
  • you are feeling discomfort, stiffness, or lack of mobility
  • you are recovering from injury, surgery, or suffering the effects of repetitive strain

Foundations of Yoga

loops of alignment and action

In this course, we explore and embody the 7 loops described in Ansuara Yoga. When I first learned this model in the 1990’s it was a game changer for my practice and my life. I continue to share this model in my offerings to others, though these days, often not in this explicit language, and with an aim to encourage an embodied nuanced application in you to meet your own unique needs and structure, remembering that any model is a map and not the territory.
We will explore from the ground up, literally.

This course is for you if:

  • you have done the foundations of yoga course and would like to explore the concept of loops more thoroughly
  • you are curious about alignment ideas that are woven through your yoga journey with me, the ‘loop’ word I occasionally drop in, and woudl like a bigger picture view of how loops relates to one another
  • you are a teacher seeking to add sound principles that apply and serve all those you share the practice with

Neuroscience informed practice

Our understanding of neuroscience is rapidly expanding. It seems to me that shedding old information and embracing the new is a challenge of our times. My ongoing quest to embody, ground, and apply my current integration of some key ideas from neuroscience as I understand them will be revealed in this course which I do hope will serve you well.

This course is for you if:
