‘I believe passionately in the transformative effects of yoga and I feel privileged to be able to pass on the benefits of this wonderful ancient practice to those who attend my classes. I began attending yoga classes in 2001. I was searching for some form of therapeutic exercise that would help ease my chronic back pain, bad posture and poor breathing (I was born with fused vertebrae and scoliosis of the spine). From the very first class I fell in love with Yoga and with consistent practice I managed to eliminate my back pain, improve my posture and my breathing.’ Claire is also a registered Baby Massage Ireland instructor and runs Baby Massage courses at Om Yoga on Tuesdays, 2.30-3.30pm.
