Claudia teaches embodiment. Her classes are designed to help people be in their bodies & to develop the awareness with the ability to remain present for all of the physical sensations, emotional fluctuations and thought formations that bubble up through the layers of the mind-body during their practice.
Claudia guide students in refining their sensitivity & ability to listen to what is happening in their body. To use the breath to clear away the contractions & tightness they feel and the light of their awareness to peel back the layers of conditioning so that they can begin to experience with more clarity who they really are.
