“Not sure which bit was my favourite…it was all so good. I wanted to experience a sense of peace and practice yoga with like minded people. Initially your website attracted me and then after talking on the phone I felt a very positive and peaceful vibe from you. Even when you communicated with us it was positive and uplifting. You totally delivered on all my expectations thank you for that.” Jules, London

Yoga Teacher – Claire Riley

For Claire yoga has been a lifelong passion. She has been practising for more than 40 years and has studied with many inspiring teachers in many different styles. She qualified to teach at Camyoga in Cambridge in 2015. Her regular style of yoga is Hatha Flow. Each of her classes are carefully sequenced to safely align, stretch and strengthen the entire body on a physical level and to release tensions, emotional blockages and encourage the flow of energy on a subtle level. Expect a fairly intense experience but you are never pushed beyond your own limits. She gives modifications and progressions as required to suit your individual needs.
