About Claire's Teaching Style.
Whether you wish to study Pilates or Yoga or both the emphasis is on practical and useful experiences that are transformative and inspiring.
The teacher is seen as both an artist and a scientist and these courses seek to provide a balance between the grounding approach of western science and the mysticism and intuition of the east.
Claire will share her vast knowledge of the human body in a fun and simple manner. A thorough structural focus will be delivered. The physical body is seen as the first tool to be explored and understood.
The Pilates method is a great method for exploring the physical body. Hatha Yoga continues the exploring from the physical into the mental aspects of being a human.
However, each teacher is also encouraged to develop a body of integrated knowledge and foster individuality within their teaching and are encouraged to create their own path of evolution. Claire has studied educational philosophy and practice in depth. She has a Masters in Education and a passion for empowering all her students.
True education will lead to self emanciaption. Through this process, self knowledge and a deep understanding of life is gained. This self awareness becomes the platform for powerful teaching.
YOU WILL learn to realease your inner strength and access your inner wisdom.
These training WILL provide you with significant knowledge and skills that lead to you becoming an empowered and effective teacher.
You will practice Pilates technique or Yoga asana on the trainings. All training involves practice, teaching and self inquiry.
Meditation and reflection is encouraged to allow true development of the teacher within. Specific meditation training is provided on the Yoga training.
