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.

GRADUATE REVIEWS

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! .

— Trish, Graduate 2020

Thank you to Claire who has given me the confidence to share the wisdom and teachings of yoga. The Ambassador Yoga 200hr program balances yogic philosophy with practical teachings and provides a welcoming, inclusive environment where trainees can discuss, inquire, and practice together. Teacher trainees graduate with the knowledge and skills needed to teach yoga, inspiration to continue exploring the practice, self -reflection and growth.

— Meghan, Graduate 2019

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.
This training is life changing and will honestly help you seek serenity through the learning and practice. The knowledge you retain and start to share will forever deepen your perspective and allow you to live your life through the yogic lens. This will leave lasting impressions on your soul.
