Claire’s partner gave her the push she needed to attend her first BIkram class. A very competitive person by nature, one of the greatest lessons she had the blessing of learning through yoga is that it’s not a race, once you step into the hot room all egos gets left at the door. And it’s these lessons that keep her coming back. The overriding sense of community Claire feels when she’s at the studio was a big part of wanting to teach Core+ Hot Pilates, which she started in June 2016 and she’s never looked back.
Claire instructs the following:
Hot Flow (Vinyasa)
Flow yoga is a dynamic form of asana movement synchronising breath with movement, evolved from the original teachings of Hatha Vinyasa Yoga. It awakens strength, energy, cardiovascular activity and flexibility in a fun atmosphere, whilst sweating it out in a nice 32-34°C. The classes start dynamically with fluid movements and breathing, slowing towards the end into longer posture holds, allowing for a deep release. This fun and addictive class is also blended with a modern day philosophy of how to live life authentically and consciously, both on and off the mat, cultivating a healthy body, quiet mind, open heart and vibrant spirit.
Core+ Hot Pilates (55 min)
These classes are seriously upbeat and incorporate traditional mat pilates exercises, plus a revolutionary mix of high-intensity interval training (HIIT) and weight work to strengthen your core and tone your body. Each class will follow a similar sequence but the order and focus will vary from class to class. Suitable for all fitness levels, these classes are high-energy and great fun thanks to a playlist of inspiring beats. Plus, you’ll burn calories and detoxify your body as each class is performed in a thermo-controlled room at 32-34°C with 40% humidity. It will be one of the best workouts you’ve had and will leave you feeling energised and inspired!
