Claire grew up in West Africa and discovered Yoga in 1984 during her studies in England. She studied Sivananda Yoga in New York and Iyengar Yoga in England. During the 90's Claire was introduced to Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga. This dynamic and athletic form of yoga suited her personality, challenged her to the core and changed her life in so many positive ways. She considers it to have been a special privilege to be able to attend a week's seminar under the guidance of Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in 2003. In 2005, Claire successfully completed an International Teacher Training with Glenn Ceresoli (Senior Iyengar Yoga Teacher) and Lance Schuler (Inspya Yoga); in 2013 she graduated from the 300-hour Advanced Teacher Training offered by AIRYOGA. Claire continues to attend workshops and seminars both in Switzerland and abroad and has had the privilege of studying under the guidance of several international yoga teachers such as Glenn Ceresoli, David Swenson, Bryan Kest, Shiva Rea, Sharon Gannon and David Life and the various seminars offered by the Swiss Yoga Union.
Claire is registered with EYU (European Yoga Union) and Yoga Alliance (E-RYT 500). As a member of the Swiss Yoga Union she is on the list of recognised Yoga teachers for the Health Insurances. Her teaching style is a powerful mix of Vinyasa Flow and Iyengar yoga, with an emphasis on correct and safe alignment. She leads her classes in English and German.
