About Claire Ellender - Calmer with Claire

Claire first attended a Yoga class in 1999 and has never looked back. Ever impressed by the energising and relaxing effects of this practice, she has dipped into various styles of Yoga in many different locations over the past 20 years, but has the greatest affinity with Hatha, Restorative and Yin Yoga.

After working in France for 12 years, as both a translator and a university lecturer, Claire relocated to the UK in 2016 to pursue her long-standing interest in health and well-being. Since completing her first Yoga teacher training (Hatha) in 2017, she has taught Yoga in local health clubs and private venues, trained as a CBT therapist and a Reiki master and published her fourth book, Soothing the Self: Facts, Inspirations and Tips for Body, Mind and Spirit (2018: Austin Macauley). In 2020, she was delighted to have the opportunity to complete a second, 200-hour YTT, and additional certifications in Ayurveda, Chair Yoga, Restorative Yoga and Yin Yoga Teaching.
