Allow me to introduce myself, my name is Claire Tilson. I am a Yoga, health, wellness, and nutrition enthusiast and teacher. I love learning, growing and exploring this amazing planet we call home. I am the newest addition to the Adi Shakti family and a student of yoga forever. I was 8 years of age when I first came into contact with yoga, my mother was taking classes in our village. I’d been a gymnast, dreaming of olympic gold, which was way out of my reach. My mother had a copy of a yoga book which I used to love paging through and mirroring the poses, there was something on those pages I found mesmerising. 20 years later I found the book, and was reminded how even as a child I had fantasised about being a yoga teacher. It wasn’t until I was 17 that I actually started practicing yoga. At the age of 23, I had an intense marketing job, so again I turned to yoga for a release and to help me face the intensity of life in a balanced way. For the next 7 years yoga became my sanctuary and when I turned 30 I signed up to study Yoga at Ananda Kutir Ashram. Now the most amazing personal journey was about to start. Yoga entered every part of my life and enriched it with love and positivity. I believe there is no better teacher than yourself and in my classes I will guide you into a relationship with your higher-self, as I believe there is no better temple than your body, no better teacher than your mind and no better worshiper than your heart.
