I've been a fitness instructor and personal trainer for over 20 years and have taught many disciplines - Boxercise, Spinning, Body Pump and Step. to name a few. I've seen many fads in the fitnessindustry - the "latest, greatest" workouts that are eventually discredited or lose popularity. And I've seen Pilates and Yoga endure throughout. Why? Because they work! In a results-orientated environment many thousands of people have seen for themselves the benefits of Pilates and Yoga.
I started practicing yoga 15 years ago, following the birth of my second child and problems with lower back pain. I was so impressed with how much better I felt after just one class and yoga soonbecame a part of my daily routine. After a few years I enjoyed yoga so much and wanted to be able to help others to share its benefits and so I decided that I would change career and study to become a yoga teacher.
I started practising yoga in 2003 when I moved to Chicago with work as a means of getting to know people in the area. On return to the UK in 2004 I continued my practice attending classes at my localhealth club (David Lloyd Leisure) and then moved into locally run classes. Since then I have been regularly attending classes and private lessons with my teacher, Michelle Chand.

Claire's journey into yoga commenced when she attended her first yoga class in her early twenties. Arriving at an Ashtanga Primary series led class with no expectations, she was completely mesmerisedby the synchronised movements, the flowing breath and total sense of calm. In that morning she found her practice and her teacher. Whilst still eagerly pursuing a corporate career she continued to practise but often at the peril of a very busy workload.

I have been practicing yoga for over six years, and it changed my life completely. Not only was my body stronger and more flexible, my concentration also improved and I was calmer and more patientthan I had ever been before! Before I came to Yoga I had problematic shoulders and constant neck pain due to my job sitting hunched over a computer all day.
A Hindu spiritual and ascetic discipline, a part of which, including breath control, simple meditation, and the adoption of specific bodily postures, is widely practised for health and relaxation. Theword yoga itself means "union": of the individual soul with the universal consciousness or spirit. Sadly we are living in a world that forces us to believe that outer attainments can give us what we want. Yet we continually have a feeling that something is missing or a void needs to be filled.
