This was my first yoga session, EVER! I never would have dared do that in a room of experienced people, but found so much comfort in the live Zoom version of class! Your instructions were easy to follow and I appreciated your continued posture reminders while in-pose to keep a true, day-one beginner focused and encouraged to see it through all the way. Seeing my classmates with videos on helped tremendously too. Thank you, Mia!
Claire took her first yoga class in 2010. As someone who had always participated in competitive sports such as basketball, volleyball and soccer, she was not expecting yoga to be 'her thing' and thought that her first class would also be her last. Wrong. Claire was surprised at how physically and mentally challenging the yoga was and how good she felt after class. “I can't say it was love at first sight,” she admits, “but I went back the next day, and the next until my 6am yoga practice became an integral (and favorite) part of my daily routine. It's always a better day when I start it with yoga.” Claire went to Teacher Training in 2014 as a way to learn more about the yoga and herself. She now teaches part-time and can usually be found at Lincoln Park practicing the 6am before heading to her office where she works as a consultant. When not doing yoga, Claire flies high between trapeze grabs, runs up a trampoline wall, and searches out the best donut in Chicago. Yoga for Claire is an important part of a balanced life.
