Claire Andrews: Teacher profiles
The challenge of the physical yoga practice with the pockets of silence were enchanting enough to keep her fully engaged and focused and the more she delved in, the more she realised it was just the beginning. Signing up for a yoga teacher training course was easy as she was thirsty for more.
Claire completed her 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training in 2010 and is now the founder and owner of Wicklow Yoga and continues to study other areas of yoga. Claire completed her 100-hour pregnancy yoga training, kids yoga and now is exploring different ways to bring her experience into her community.
Claire easily grasped the concept of integrating body, mind, and soul into everything, understanding holistic health, and wellbeing she aims to bring this into everything she does.
Before Claire became a yoga teacher she was very passionate about astrology and healing so much so that she decided to train in reiki one and then reiki two and finally completed her reiki masters back in 2003. Her love of astrology has continued for over 15 years and she has been able to develop her skills in this science bringing an awareness of the planetary circles into her work.
As her classes have evolved over the years of teaching, she discovered she was able to introduce and combine reiki into her yoga classes. Claire will naturally use her intuition and allow the reiki to be part of her regular yoga class. This has enriched and enabled her to share the healing energy to a larger group of people.
Yoga is a wonderful healing tool that anybody who is motivated to get well can use. By adding reiki to your experience allows the process of ‘Letting Go’, whether this is mentally, physically or emotionally, easier, helping towards self reflection and the direction of spiritual growth.
