Graduate Review - Micaela June 2020
'This teacher training is incredible. So packed with information, teaching plans, pose breakdowns, practicums and jam packed with everything you will need to feel confident as a new teacher to start as soon as we graduate. Claire is an incredible instructor. This is an investment you will not regret! It is by far the best Hatha training I have seen on the market'.

Graduate Review - Sarah, November 2015
'My favorite part of the training was the study and dissection of the Bhagavad Gita and connecting its themes to modern life. Claire offers herself wholly to her students, sharing her personal journey as it relates to the subjects at hand. She speaks confidently about yogic philosophy and physical anatomy in language that is entirely understandable to students. As well as being an excellent speaker, Claire is an incredible listener. Each student is encouraged to share their thoughts and have their voice heard. One cannot deny that Claire is fully invested in developing and offering teacher training to utmost of her ability. All of this is seen in the community that has been, and continues to be, created in her studio amongst students and teachers alike'.
Explore the wisdom of a Yogic lifestyle through the Yamas and Niyamas, commonly called the do’s and don’ts of yoga. These insights form the foundation of the Eight Limb Path, a series of yoga philosophies that provide useful guidelines to ground, inspire and enlighten you. The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali will also serve as a reference to assist you in threading the truths of these ancient teachings into your modern life.
The Sutras of Patanjali

Advance your physical practice and become confident instructing powerful breathing techniques.

When I first walked into the studio I felt an enormous sense of community and felt encouraged and supported taking this next step into my yoga journey. I had no intention to teach but was rather looking for a deeper understanding into the yoga philosophies but now look forward to share my love of yoga inside a class setting in addition to "off the mat".
Ambassador Yoga Teacher Training with Claire was incredibly inspiring experiential learning! I learned so much about breathing, asanas, mindful movement, body awareness, meditation and relaxation. I also learned yogic principles and reflection strategies and enlightenment that have changed my life. This curriculum stimulated my mind, body and spirit every day of my training and beyond! .

Thank you to Claire who has given me the confidence to share the wisdom and teachings of yoga.

Claire is the ideal instructor for a 200 hour training as she is prepared, willing to explain concepts and theories in multiple ways and goes beyond the facilitators role to ensure your experience throughout the training is personalized and curated for your journey.
