Clea is passionate about incorporating yoga into her daily life. Her extensive experience dates back 20 years when she began practicing with her own mother. She noticed that her mind, body and soul felt more deeply connected, centred and aligned than ever before and so began the deep descent into the teachings and philosophy of yoga.
Since becoming a mother herself, yoga has been a constant companion. The practice of yoga through breathe, movement and meditation has helped Clea to achieve an overall calm and balanced demeanour, allowing her to tackle the ever increasing pressure and stresses that everyday life throws our way.
Clea’s classes will leave you feeling restored and nourished with emphasis on being in the moment and utilising the breath to take you deeper into your practice. She would be honoured to guide you in your yoga journey.
Do you have a mantra/quote that you often turn to?
I have two! A nice short succinct one and a juicy long one. I love both equally.
Hard choices, easy life
Easy choices, hard life
Also this quote from Marianne Williamson
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
How do you fill up your love tank?
When my children wake up in the mornings or the youngest one from a nap during the day I sit and cuddle them and more importantly they cuddle me. Time stands still and the love, gratitude and pure bliss brings tears to my eyes. Also yoga, asanas, breath work, meditation completely fills me up!!
What advice would you give someone wondering whether to try yoga for the first time?
Find a class style and teacher that resonates with you. Drop any comparison or judgment you may feel and then show up and allow the magic to unfold.
