Claudia’s fascination with movement and body potential began with her slipping in to the ballet studio across the street from her house when she was seven, where she sat in a corner and watched in wonder. Later, she boogied her way through aerobics classes, ultimately becoming a certified group fitness instructor. Finally deciding to make the leap from a traditional office career to a movement based career in personal fitness training, Claudia went back to school to complete her Undergraduate and Graduate degrees in Kinesiology and Exercise Physiology.
In 2003, after experiencing a health scare, she began to explore yoga as a way to manage her stress and reconnect with her body in a new way. Claudia completed her 200 hour RYT through Jennifer Prugh’s Joy of Yoga teacher training, and is currently pursuing her 500 hour certification with Joy of Yoga.
Her vinyasa classes are centered in a mindful dance with the breath and the body, combining creative asana flows, with breath practices and simple meditation techniques.
