When I met Claire and took her Yin class for the first time, I knew Lighthouse Yoga was the place where I belonged. I immediately felt a loving connection with her. Seeing her was like seeing a piece of myself. Her energy is contagious and graces all those who she comes into contact with. I rapidly fell deep into the practice and just kept yearning for more. Claire recognized I was ready for teacher training when I had not fully seen it in myself. Yoga teacher training was life changing for me. Its helped me embrace who I have always truly been, allowed me to see my spiritual gifts, educated me on how to heal, and guided me towards my life's purpose. I could not be more grateful for Claire and the experiences I have received and achieved through Lighthouse Yoga. Lighthouse is not only a studio but a place where family comes together.
A few years ago, I was waiting for the perfect invitation to complete 200-hour yoga teacher training. My intention was so that I would be qualified to teach yoga for 12 step recovery (Y12sr). When It was announced that Claire Z would be leading a 200-hour training, I knew that was for me. I liked Claire and her compassionate no nonsense approach to teaching. I turned 70 during the training and cannot put into words the impact training had on me and my life. When an opportunity arises to be in a class or group gathering with Claire, I jump on it because I trust Claire implicitly and depend on her for my safety and security and health. Whatever she does, it is with enthusiasm, great detail and an immense open heart. This includes the trip I took with her to Peru and subsequently to India. While the weather and altitude in Peru were not my best friends, the experience as a whole was growth filled and nourishing. I learned about self-care and appreciate the detail and attention Claire put into our trip. Anywhere Claire teaches, I feel confident to follow. Take the leap!
