Claire Winterbourne – Reflexologist

I have loved practising yoga for 18 years now. Two years ago I decided to expand my learning so that I could also teach. It felt natural to train under the guidance of Katy Appleton of Appleyoga. She was one of my earliest teachers, originally from a dvd, whose use of Sufi poetry and beautiful flows have continued to inspire me. Even now when I am in a class myself her voice continues to guide me.

Being a reflexologist means that over many years I have embraced more and more of an holistic approach to health and wellbeing. Becoming a yoga teacher felt like the most natural next step.

Training in yin takes me further now into the wonderful direction of meditation, of slowing and softening and being present to all we feel. I love the balance that a more dynamic vinyasa flow, together with a slower yin practise, brings to life.
