What struck me most about Claire and her teaching was her incredible sweetness. Every word she spoke was delivered with a genuine love and reverence for the practice. The tenderness of her dharma talk reinforced the sacredness of the practice.
Beyond her voice, Claire extended a heartfelt sweetness to her students. Whether though a gentle adjustment, an encouraging word, or a beaming smile, Claire made every student feel at home and held. Her love for the practice shone through her enthusiasm for the subtleties of each pose. Claire’s teaching reveals how closely and how dearly she holds her yoga to her heart.
As we softened into Savasana, Claire serenaded us with some music. The music played through a wooden flute, but the music I heard was not that of an instrument; it was the song of Claire’s heart.
