After teaching in retreat centers around the world, Claire is back in her native land of Alsace! She is thrilled to share a unique experience with you at the beautiful Villa Rosa.
According to her student’s feedbacks, her retreats are spaces for inner transformation and authentic sharing in a healthy, warm, caring, and inclusive environment!
Her classes are inspiring, with a zest of humor and philosophy, rooted in a “traditional” yoga yet adapted to our modern lifestyles. She offers different variations so that everyone progresses at their own pace and safely.
For her yoga is a way of life, a (re)awakening to our infinite potential and a powerful means of healing that can be practiced on the mat as well as in our daily lives.
Claire has been teaching for 12 years, led retreats for 5 and has over 900 hours of Yoga Training in Vinyasa, Hatha, Restorative, Pranayama, Meditation and Zenthai (a yoga that blends Chinese Medicine, QiGong and Yoga) She is currently studying Prenatal Yoga.

FALL YOGA & CULTURAL RETREAT
24th to the 30th of SEPTEMBER 2022
Autumn is nature's great exhalation, a time of returning to calm after the hot and vibrant months of summer.
A time to recharge your batteries and take the time to live!
This retreat will include Zenthai yoga and restorative yoga classes, outdoor activities such as hiking and biking but also simple ways to deepen our relationship with nature and ourselves through slow walks, picking wild herbs, grape harvesting, forest bathing, sylvotherapy and outdoor meditation!
There will also be time to just be and relax by the pool or in the nearby forest, or explore the land of my childhood, the beautiful region of Alsace!
