It was by chance that Claire walked into a Bikram yoga class while Visiting New York City in 2003. As a former collegiate basketball player, she instantly fell in love with the novel challenge of yoga. It was not long after beginning yoga that she noticed this harmonious balance between flexibility and strength which improved her other athletic pursuits along the way. This change inspired her to deepen her yoga practice after completing law school. In 2010, Claire became a certified 200-Hour Power Vinyasa RYT. Spreading the peace, freedom, and joy that yoga brought to her she began by teaching community yoga classes with One Yoga Foundation in parks all throughout the county of Miami-Dade. In 2013, she completed an additional 200-Hour Raja Yoga Teacher Training at 305 Yoga and Outreach. This exposed her to a whole realm of additional yoga lineages such as; Iyengar, Anusara, Ashtanga, Kundalini, and Skanda. In 2014, Claire became certified in Yin Yoga at the Urban Bliss School of Yoga which shifted and brought upon wholeness to her practice. In 2016, she became certified in Divine Sleep Yoga Nidra with Jennifer Reis. This inspired and guided meditation practice revealed to her the incredible power to transform, heal and rejuvenate her body at the deepest levels. This left her inspired to learn more which led her to Rishikesh, India where she completed her 300-Hour Sattva Yoga Teacher Training under Anand Mehrotra in 2016.  This is where her practice came full circle and taught her the incredible life changing power of moving subtle energy within the body. 

Claire is a lifelong student and has continued to travel to India ten times over the last five years to study and take numerous master trainings at Sattva Yoga Academy, ride through the Himalayas on a motorcycle with her teacher Anand, learn Vedic Astrology, and teach at the annual Sattva Summit yoga festival.  Yoga has taught her the beautiful union of power and grace in all areas of her life. This has influenced her inspiration of guiding her students through a series of stimulating asanas and deep relaxation. Claire seeks to share this balance of the body, mind, and spirit to inspire others to live in gratitude for the present moment on this incredible journey of life.

Gladys

Teacher

​Gladys is a daughter, sister, aunt, friend, healer, and provider.  While in college in 2000, she first met yoga through a course. It was new and different from the fast-paced workouts she had previously always done. It was not until 2013 that she considers when she officially became a yogi; even though she did not realize it at the time. She was always consistent with exercise, whether it was through dancing, swimming, aerobics. She realized yoga was different with many layers. It started with the very physical sensation of stretching and sweating. That went on for years as she practiced Bikram and Vinyasa yoga. Then came the spiritual component. It seeped in slowly until her teacher training experience. Then it was like a complete explosion. Universal truths. She started to experience many realizations about the world, as she knew it. Now she feels privileged to share what she has learned with the community. She is excited that she can hold space, in a new way, for anyone who walks through the Lighthouse Yoga & Wellness doors.

Joel

Teacher

For Joel, yoga is the culmination of a lifelong journey towards wholeness. Raised in Miami, his story begins with a call to a deeper and fuller spiritual life. Having received his degree in Religious Studies from the University of Pennsylvania, Joel’s journey led him to yoga as he was entering recovery from substance abuse. Within the technology that is yoga, he experienced a profound sense of healing and community that utterly changed his life. It was his big “Aha!” Moment and what began as a way to de-stress and reconnect with his body, transformed into the latest step of his spiritual journey. With this passion, came the desire to learn as much as possible and to give back to the community that had provided him with a sacred healing space. In September of 2019, Joel had the incredible opportunity of traveling to India and train in the tradition and lineage of the great Himalayan masters, learning how yoga is not only an exercise of the body, but of the mind and spirit as well. He now looks forward to giving back, supporting others on their own spiritual evolutionary path. He believes that yoga meets you where you are at, that it is infinitely adaptable, and that if you have the courage to try, it can radically change your life.
