Yoga for Claire is beyond the physical asana practice and embraces mental calm and wellbeing. Her Iyengar classes will help you to find your inner sense of peace as well as strength and flexibility

About Claire

Claire is one of a handful of Level 3 (formerly called Junior Intermediate 3) Iyengar teachers in Northern Ireland and has developed Maitri Studio as a base for Iyengar yoga in Belfast. Claire's training and practice has spanned many years (and continues!) and she brings her extensive experience to all classes. Many people will know that Iyengar training is rigorous and thorough, covering all aspects of traditional yoga. In particular the Iyengar method is known to be helpful for all, whether already active and fit, or suffering from aches, injuries or various health conditions. Read more about Claire on her site, and about Iyengar yoga on the IY(UK) website.

August 2021 extended classes & taster sessions

I am offering a series of extended (2hr) classes 9-20 August. These are aimed at regular students with no significant health issues so we can have time to delve deeper into the poses and use the ropes as well! Places will be limited depending on the covid situation at the time. £15 per class.

  • Tues 10/17 Aug 2-4pm
  • Wed 11/18 Aug 6-8pm

  • Thur 12/19 Aug 6-7.15pm

From September 2021

Classes will restart 13 September. Usual class passes apply, and all extant passes that expired during covid times will be extended so you won't miss out. I await covid regulations before deciding which classes will be in person and/or online.

  • Tuesdays 10-11.15am beginners (gentler, suitable 55+ or with mobility issues)
  • Tuesdays 6-7.15pm beginners (active)

Beginners are encouraged to attend the specified beginners classes if possible.

Online or in-person?

I am likely to deliver some classes both in person and streamed live online. Make sure you register correctly for either the in-person or online class, depending on what you want. If you do not attend the in-person classes you will have a credit deducted as it means another person would not be able to attend. Additional online and in person information here.

Covid precautions

There are limited spaces due to distancing requirements. You will lose a credit if you register then don't show, because it means someone else might have lost out on a space. Remember you need to wear a mask to arrive at the studio, but you don't need to wear it in class. All our covid precautions here.

Iyengar yoga class passes

You can use your Iyengar class pass to attend classes with other Iyengar-trained teachers at Maitri - Maura and Eva. Check all their classes here.

You can choose a 10-class pass valid for 3 months £80, 6-classes valid for 7 weeks at £54 or a single class £10. Concessionary rates available if money is a barrier to attendance. Buy online here.

Yoga retreats, 1:1 and community classes

I offer yoga workshops and holidays in other locations in Northern Ireland and abroad. I am available to teach group sessions or 1:1 classes. I am really keen to make yoga available to people who might not otherwise have the chance, so Ie offers classes in the community, for charities and by supporting the Prison Phoenix Trust.
