After experiencing a life-threatening illness, Claire turned to yoga, pilates and group fitness classes to learn to move her body again.

Claire’s positivity and love for physical activity are a constant feature of her classes, and she hopes everyone leaves her classes feeling uplifted and energised.

Claire has an uplifting and motivational spirit that drives my weekly sessions! She is a very encouraging and supportive coach – Liz Clout
