Yoga Instructor & bodyART Instructor
Claudia has always been active and believed a form of exercise should lead one to improved functioning in life. What one does in a gym, studio or outside in nature should enhance physical, mental and emotional health. Practicing and teaching yoga has affirmed this belief.
After completing a career in social work / vocational rehabilitation, working with persons with developmental disabilities, Claudia came to the Alpharetta area. It was time to look in a new direction and then the gifted yoga teachers appeared! These wonderful mentors helped her deepen her understanding of yoga and establish a more regular practice. At the same time, she began bodyART Training classes which led to an opportunity to earn a bodyART Training license and teach this energetic program. In 2015, she received her 200 hr certificate from Etowah Valley Yoga. She is currently working on a 300 hr Advanced Teacher Training at Etowah Valley Yoga. Other training includes workshops in ashtanga, yin, chair yoga and Barre Basics certification.
Ensuring that students have a safe and satisfying experience is her goal for each class; and of course, having fun! A former student once said to Claudia “I always liked your classes … you didn’t take yourself too seriously”.
