About Claire

Claire is one of a handful of Level 3 (formerly called Junior Intermediate 3) Iyengar yoga 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 yoga 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.
