Sun Power Yoga increases intuition, mental clarity, strength, flexibility, and happiness.
The name “Sattva” implies one who is divine, pure, and spiritual. SATTVA is a sanskrit word meaning balance, calmness, steadiness and peace. It is the perfect place between full and empty. It is this which promotes radiant health and healing. Yoga is a state which brings union of the whole self. Body, mind and spirit with the divine.

Thai Yoga Massage
Claudine studied massage at the School of Therapeutic Bodywork alongside Howard Evans. This style of Thai Massage seamlessly weaves Eastern tradition with Western knowledge and understanding. It combines the best techniques from Traditional Thai Massage with neuromuscular, myofascial and craniosacral influences to create a flowing, dynamic and meditative form of bodywork. This is not the painful and bruising work that many people have experienced as Traditional Thai Massage. This approach to Thai Massage is explained in Howard Evans’ book, ‘A Myofascial Approach to Thai Massage’, published January 2009 by Churchill Livingstone.
Thai Massage is received on a mat on the floor. You can remain lightly clothed as no oil is used. The massage unfolds like a continuous and effortless dance involving deep tissue release, joint mobilisations and applied hatha yoga asanas.
A student of yoga for over 10 years, Claudine has studied many forms of yoga including Sivananda, Ashtanga, and Hatha traditions, which she incorporates into her Sun Power Yoga practice.

I deliver your class to music and it is a wonderful mix of relaxation and flow that gets you sweating and working hard. The fundamentals of my class are born in traditional sanskrit teachings and breathwork. You will leave feeling energised, centred and mindful about your body and mind.
There comes a time when you want to go deeper into your usual practice and work on challenging sequences and poses. As a beginner or an advanced student I can help you develop the next level and inspire the beautiful practice you already have.

“Breathe for Two” classes -Pranayama for Pregnancy
My “Breathe for two” classes concentrate on the use of breathwork during pregnancy and labour. Its important to remember that when you are pregnant you are no longer just breathing for yourself but also for your baby. The exercises in these classes focus on the use of breath, prana, and help you to learn a new way of breathing to use throughout your pregnancy and fantastic techniques to help you through your labour.
