Meet your teachers:
Claire – Lead Yin teacher and facilitator to the course.
Senior Yoga teacher, yoga therapist and passionate yin yogi, from her first encounter with yin yoga she was hooked, and fell in love with the pure raw healing potential of the practice and the contrast between the strength and power of a yang practice compared to the grace and surrender of a yin practice. Passionate about how yoga empowers people in the healing process; rather, than being a passive recipient of treatment, the student is actively engaged in the path to their own well-being. Claire sees her role as guide you to listen to your own subtle messages your body gives and directing you as to how to respond offering tools for re-balance and teaching you the way to implement these tools within your own teaching. Claire has over 1,200 hours of teacher training and 15 years of teaching experience; completing 500 hours with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2005; Birthlight pregnancy yoga training in 2009. She gained the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course Teacher Trainer certification in 2011 delivering British Wheel of Yoga training. In 2014 she completed Forrest Yoga Advanced Yoga Training before furthering her training by completing 500-hour with Maggie Reach studying yin yoga therapy, yoga philosophy, chanting, and Ayurveda, co-run with Neil Pearson, a specialist in physical therapy and chronic pain in 2015. In 2019 she completed further Yin Yoga training with Jo Phee and Joe Barnett.
Kate has a broad range of experience in various yoga, meditation and healing practices. Originally from the UK, she has travelled and lived abroad intermittently over the past 15 years. Her natural sensitivity for healing began at an early age when her horse experienced a back injury and she found herself intuitively laying her hands on him to relieve the pain. After training as a Reiki practitioner in Cambodia, Kate completed her 200 hour Yoga teacher training, 55 hour meditation teacher training and Reiki Master studies on the beautiful island of Koh Phangan, Thailand. Kate’s therapeutic, holistic approach forms the base of her yoga and meditation practice. You will find her teaching combines Eastern philosophies from traditional yogic practices, Buddhism, Taoism and Tantra.
