Out of simple curiosity about this 1,000-year-old healing system, Claudine began practicing yoga in 1999. After just one yoga video, she realized two things: she had neglected to get in touch with her body and she truly did not know what it was like to breathe.
After several years in corporate America, Claudine left a full-time marketing career to start teaching yoga. Her yoga practice has spread its wings to encompass all of her life and her community.
By being accessible, attentive and articulate, Claudine helps her students learn to do what they never thought their bodies could do. Her practice ranges from teaching beginners, focusing on alignment and reconnecting with our bodies, to help more experienced students move their practice forward with an emphasis on taking what we learn on our mats into our daily lives. Claudine teaches weekly classes, customized private one-on-one sessions, corporate yoga and hosts retreats and workshops.
For Claudine's students, the physical practice of yoga begins a journey. That journey leads to a greater ability to be present in the moment and to trust your inner wisdom.
Claudine earned her yoga training certification from The Temple of Kriya Yoga. She’s worked as a yoga teacher since 2004. Claudine opened her yoga studio, Living Yoga in Aurora, Illinois, in 2007.
In 2013 she expanded her teaching with the Time on Your Mat series of videos on YouTube. She serves as a teacher for YogaUonline.
Her continuing studies with teachers such as Jason Crandall, Natasha Rizopoulos, Shiva Rea and Kathryn Budig strongly influence Claudine’s practice and teaching.
