Claire Ferry

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.

Online or in-person?

Currently all classes are 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 currently no required covid precautions. We still have hand sanitiser in the studio, and you can wear a mask if you wish while accessing the building. There is no need to wear a mask during the class. We just ask you not to attend in person if you're feeling unwell.

Iyengar yoga class passes

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

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.

Workshops

I teach 2.5hr workshops at weekends, usually once a month. These cost £25 - book via the student portal. All dates are shown on the event page.
