Clare has spent the past 15 years experiencing many forms of spiritual practice and began a dedicated yoga practice 5 years ago which incorporated both Hatha and Kundalini Yoga through classes she was attending and daily home practices.
It was when Clare became pregnant nearly four years ago that her connection to Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation and the Earth became an ever more fundamental aspect of her life. Clare continued a healthy and dedicated yoga practice throughout her pregnancy leading to a safe and empowered birth. Having had such a positive experience and deep in the throws of transformation that only motherhood can bring Clare decided to train as a pregnancy yoga teacher with the hope that she could bring power, knowledge, inspiration and encouragement to other woman’s pregnancies and birthing experiences.
