Claire Cunningham

Claire first encountered yoga during a twenty-year career as a professional dancer and rehearsal director with leading companies across Europe. It was during this period that she developed her understanding of yoga to strengthen performance potential, health and a general sense of well-being in such a physically demanding profession. Her love of Yoga in all forms developed into a career path when she was invited to write and teach a Yoga module for postgraduate students at London Contemporary Dance School in 2011.
“Yoga has been my greatest support through all cycles of life – in good health, bereavement, pregnancy, motherhood and as a dancer. I am passionate about the benefits of Yoga to create contentment, resilience and a healthy mind/body balance.”
Claire has studied many styles of yoga in India and Europe and holds a Yoga Alliance teaching qualification; a Japanese Bodywork certification from The European School of Shiatsu; and an MA in Contemporary Dance.
