Claire immigrated to Canada in August 2001, hailing originally from Zimbabwe in Southern Africa. She is a former ballet dancer, having trained with the Royal Ballet in London. She has been an avid Bikram practitioner for 6 years, after experiencing life-changing benefits to her health and mental well-being. A healthier, calm and more balanced life-style convinced Claire to share her love for Bikram Yoga and she enrolled in the world-renowned Teacher Training with Bikram Choudhury in Hawaii, Spring 2007. After graduation she taught full-time, sharing her knowledge and passion and re-certified in 2009 in Palm Desert (Bikram re-certification being mandatory at least every 3 years), as well as completing the 84-posture Advanced Class training at the same time. Claire has regularly attended lectures, seminars and classes by Bikram and his senior teachers, gaining more knowledge to share with her students. In 2010, she decided to go one step further and asked Bikram Choudhury for approval to open an affiliated studio in Ottawa. The doors to Bikram Yoga Ottawa opened on 19 Feb 2011.
Claire will guide you through your class with energy, compassion and a touch of humour.
