About your facilitators

Claire Beiersdorf (USA)

Clarie enjoys yoga for the immersive experience. The movement of the body in sync with breath and music, the exploration of asanas, the self-education, the building of physical strength and internal calm.

Claire has always been sporty and competitive and the discovery of yoga was a brand new experience: a way to train her body to move in ways she couldn’t even as a preteen gymnast, and an athletic pursuit where there was no competition, only a constant striving for self-improvement. Claire’s love for the practice of yoga led her to Cusco Peru, where she completed her 200-hour certification at the Bhakti Yoga School in 2013.

As the practice of yoga has increased her physical strength and flexibility, the experience of teaching has increased her comfort in front of groups and made her a more confident leader, all of which she has carried with her into her personal and professional lives. In December of 2015, she returned to South America to complete her 500-hour certification at the Bhakti Yoga School.

As an instructor, Claire strives to bring energy and to encourage her students to experiment with their own practices. She wants her students to feel safe, inspired and to have individually rewarding experiences. Claire is truly thankful for what she has gained from the community, and is thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to it.
