Yoga Instructor & Wellness Advocate
Yoga has been a part of my life for over 10 years. Yoga has helped me become flexible and stronger both physically and mentally. Having graduated from Quinnipiac University with my Masters degree in Social Work, I used yoga as a form of self care while in school. I have brainstormed ways to integrate components of yoga such as Mindfulness and Meditation into my Social Work practice.
I became a 200 hour certified yoga teacher through Lotus Gardens Yoga School in 2019. I obtained my Prenatal Yoga certification through Arhanta Yoga in 2021. I am currently working to be certified in Post Natal yoga,
My yoga teaching style is gentle and I aim to give others the tools to cope with daily stressors. I aim to help people to be compassionate with themselves; physically and mentally; both on and off the mat. I want my students to be able to walk out of class feeling rejuvenated and at peace with themselves.
When I am not practicing yoga, I work with children and adolescents in the court system. I hope to spread my love of yoga with the children and teens I work with, as well as others in the community, to help them to regulate their emotions. I also enjoy hiking, traveling, and spending time with my fiancé, yogi cat assistant, Sophie, as well as family and friends.
“Clara embodies the true meaning of Yoga. She is self-aware, loving, and balanced, and brings a deep level of care to her practice, teaching, and relationships. Her classes and sessions address the spiritual aspects of Yoga while also addressing the physical ones in a gentle and rejuvenating way. I was intimidated by Yoga at first but Clara helped me feel comfortable, both physically and mentally, in my practice. I highly recommend practicing with Clara! - Meg O.
"Amazing experience. Clara is a brilliant teacher. She can reach and encourage first time beginners...which I am and she makes it fun for everyone!" - Olivia B.
"I walked into a yoga class with Clara and emerged a different person at ease! She teaches an amazing slow flow with unique postures. I really enjoyed the intention she set for class and found myself thinking about it long after the class was over. Clara's restorative classes were exactly what I needed to eliminate tension and find mindfulness." - Jessica B.
