"Claire W. is fantastic! She convinced me that my ability to benefit from yoga was not connected to my flexibility - though that has improved as well. She is very conscientious of people’s physical limitations and offers options to increase or decrease the difficulty level of most poses. She has stayed after class to help me figure out a pose I was struggling with and that definitely made an impact. I love her focus on harmony of mental, spiritual and physical well being and am looking forward to taking a class with her next semester as well." - Student, Oakland University, December 2017

“Just wanted to let you know that I attended the best class ever last Saturday with Claire. It was an “experience” in yoga, she is wonderful.” - Student, Red Lotus Yoga, Rochester Hills MI, February 2014.
 

“I have been away from RL for a while for a number of reasons. Today, having a day off from school, I decided to try a class. I am somewhat of an advanced practitioner, but have not practiced (in most any way for a year or so). After reading Claire’s W. bio, I came and took her class.  I hoped to share with whomever reads this, what the difference a teacher can make. Yoga is very personal, and for me, that means “the person”.  She adjusts and corrects alignment, and shares the essence of yoga aside from the physical (Hatha) aspects.  So for no other reason than to tell “someone” how an individual (Claire) can re-awaken the joy and “release” yoga brings, I write this letter.  I am glad I came and took class with Claire, and thought someone should know how she inspired one of your students to “try again”.  And so I will. Take care and Namaste.”

“Being fairly new to yoga, I was very happy to join Claire’s class at Red Lotus Yoga. She is extremely knowledgeable about form and technique; and is super helpful. She shares a lesson with each class and adds something for personal growth and reflection. She makes yoga more than just exercise but also about self improvement. I look forward to her class every week. She is a great teacher for beginners and advanced students. I highly recommend Claire!”
