CLAIRE SHAW

Who am I?

I am a chocolate obsessed yoga teacher/professional dancer/climber/nut-butter lover/all round mess maker!

I specialise in bringing students a fun and playful yoga practise which will get you hot and sweaty, maybe make you fall over and definitely make you stronger.

My classes are always evolving but the aim is to enable you to feel good in your body and mind. I can help you to flow, connect with your breath and find a little zen in what tends to be a very hyper and hectic city.

Soon you will be taking on dragons single handedly and generally flowing through life with the grace of a ninja! 😉

Come to My Yoga Classes

DIY Space for London

Monday 7pm – 8.15pm

Held in the infinitely loveable DIY Space for London, this is an general level but dynamic Vinyasa Flow class. The atmosphere is informal and fun, the class takes place in the big gig space with a no nonsense concrete flooring, punky wall paintings and a great PA system. Mats are available if you message ahead to reserve one. Be prepared to work up a little (or big) sweat as we move through sun salutations, explore warrior sequences, balance on one leg, fall over, spend time in plank and zen out.

Simulacra Studio with Brixtonyoga

Thursdays 7pm – 8.30pm

Strengthening, full of jungle cat metaphors and chocolate ganache references. We take a full and fun journey through the Vinyasa flow world. Starting with a mindful moment, centring the body and coming into breath, moving on to heightening awareness of the core and muscularity of the body, building a sweat as we go.

WORKSHOPS

I offer a selection of bespoke workshops from the purely Yogic to the intensely Chocolatey. What ever you need, your wish is my desire!

Cocoa-Yoga Workshops.

The wonderfully endorphin boosting cocoa-yoga workshops involve a happy pairing of two of my greatest passions, chocolate and yoga! It may seem a surprising combination to some but makes perfect sense when you think about it as both (dark) chocolate and Yoga have been proven to increase levels of the happy hormone serotonin and have many health inducing effects including lowering blood pressure and reducing heart disease.

Workshops begin with a sweaty and dynamic yoga class, full of deliciously chocolatey imagery which prepares the mind and body for the second cocoa focused part of the workshop where every ounce of chocolate learning is illustrated by an edible chocolate example!
