Why 'the light within' you may ask?
Hello I'm Claire, my intention is to help people to take care of their health through Yoga practices and Reiki. My motivation for beginning my journey into Yoga and Reiki in 2003 was to feel better so that I could enjoy my life to the full without feeling so stressed, anxious or depressed. At this time it felt like my inner light was dim, I couldn't see my way out and was not connected to the joy, love and to my true nature that only comes from within. Yoga and Reiki are ways of pointing me back in the right direction and to what I see as an inner light. My own journey has been one of rediscovering and reconnecting to the light within and incidentally my name also means 'light' or 'clear'.
I love all things connected to natural health and healing and feel passionately about helping people to take responsibility for their own wellbeing. By taking responsibility we become empowered and understand ourselves better; we begin to learn that everything we need is already within us if we give ourselves the space to listen.
Yoga can help with anxiety, depression and to reconnect with a higher self or the divine. Yoga can also help on a physical level with alleviating tension and restricted movement. I focus on teaching women to encourage greater connection to their inner wisdom and natural cycles.
Reiki is a Japanese healing art which works on physical, mental and emotional conditions. The word Reiki means the highest form of healing energy and is a holistic therapy that anyone can benefit from. It is like a boost of positive energy for whenever you may be feeling tired, ill or run down.
Kirtan is a form of Yoga practice that follows the the Bhakti Yoga path. Through the singing of mantras connecting with many forms of the divine we are able to connect with the highest part of ourself. It is literally singing ourselves home to that place of love, joy and peace within all of us.

Yin Yoga Magic at the Equinox
Sunday 20th September 2020 - 4pm - 6pm Online via Zoom
The Equinox is a point of balance with day and night equal in length. This is an opportune time to reflect on the year so far, to become aware of the changing season and integrate all that we have learnt.
Join me for a Yin Yoga practice to experience these changes within ourselves and enjoy the magic of this slow, reflective practice! Yin Yoga is a slow, floor based practice with longer held postures. This can help anyone who may experience anxiety or overwhelm and also anyone who is looking for greater flexibility in their joints. In our often fast paced world with many distractions this practice can be a welcome relief to find some much needed balance, silence and stillness.
Suitable for those with some experience of Yoga or Meditation
Cost £15 / £12 concessions
Book your place via Paypal or email me for alternative
Once booked I will send you the Zoom link to access the workshop
Women's Wisdom Yoga practice
Sunday 25th October 2020 - 9am - 11am Online via Zoom
Join me for a Yoga practice to reconnect with our inner wisdom as women. In my experience we are often told consciously or subconsciously how we should act, how we should look and what is expected of us as women in society. Our minds are constantly searching 'out there' for answers, for distractions and solutions. Yoga practises encourage self-reflection (svadhyaya) so that we can uncover what is really true for us and listen to the wisdom that is within us.
Feminine energy moves in spirals, circles and figure of eights and this practice will gently move our body in this way incorporating elements of Qi Gong, asana, mudra, pranayama and meditation.
Suitable for all levels and for anyone identifying as a women, whether you have a womb or not.
Cost is £15 /£12 concessions
