Yoga Winter Warmer Workshop with Claire Cunningham
Wednesday 6 February
This afternoon workshop will combine several aspects of yoga to nurture the body in the winter months, focus the mind and set a clear intention for 2019. Claire will include a dynamic asana practice, chanting, partner assists and yoga nidra. Although the class is dynamic, she encourages a mindful approach, working in a non-competitive environment. The flow of the workshop will leave you feeling energized and focused for the year ahead.
Suitable for advanced degree students, recent graduates and professionals
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.
