Claire’s first experience with Pilates was through a mat class in 2005 where she discovered that Pilates was a great foundation for running and sand volleyball - adding balance, coordination, and flexibility. Now as a full-time business consultant, Claire recognizes daily the benefits of improved posture and core strength in offsetting the effects of computers and travel. She has been sharing her knowledge and passion for Pilates as an instructor since 2016 and has completed comprehensive training through Balanced Body. She is recognized as a Nationally Certified Pilates Teacher by the NPCP. Claire focuses on helping her clients understand proper alignment and how to initiate movement, while identifying and avoiding movement patterns that can contribute to chronic pain. Above all, she believes in helping people learn about and appreciate their bodies rather than wishing for new ones.
