Yoga Therapy Session Testimonials

"Following my diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer, I have sought therapies to help me cope with the impact of the disease. I am so pleased to have now found Claire and accessed her yoga therapy sessions. Her expertise and gentle compassion are helping me on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level. Through our sessions I am gaining confidence and learning how to reduce my pain and mental anguish. I would recommend Claire and yoga therapy to anyone struggling with a cancer diagnosis and the side effects of treatment."

"I contacted Claire as I had been suffering with long covid and I was struggling to find any treatments to help my symptoms. I found the sessions with Claire improved my general mood and well-being alongside really alleviating my long covid symptoms. Claire teaches in such a calm and caring manner and made it very easy for me to learn the yoga therapy techniques to use at home. I would recommend Claire to anyone interested in yoga, but especially people suffering with long covid or other respiratory problems"

“The Yoga Clinic Michigan and Claire Whittleston cannot be more highly recommended.  I had taken many of Claire’s courses in the past and knew she was a skilled teacher, so I jumped at the chance for one on one yoga therapy sessions.  I have been dealing with C-PTSD, anxiety, and depression and was looking for natural remedies.  Claire employs many and varied techniques including adaptive movement, yoga asanas, breathing exercises, and at my request, chanting to assist meditation.  Each week I am provided with a sheet that reviews all the tools I have learned that I can do for homework.  In just over a month, I am finding my stress levels reduced and sleep patterns improved.  The best I feel all week is when I walk out of the yoga clinic.  If you are looking for improvement in your life or in your yoga, and you want an environment that is safe, effective and non-judgmental, I would advise this method strongly.”

“Thanks Claire for a very insightful and challenging chair yoga practice this morning. Of course, it will help with rehab after I get my knees fixed, but the surprise benefit was in alignment and rotation that I could focus on with the chair's support. (I'm talking knee, hip, ankle, back, shoulders in warrior 1 & 2). I was embarrassed by how "lazy" or compensating my practice has become. The chair poses are very adaptable and I believe they can be as gentle or challenging as needed. I also enjoyed the breathing exercises and chanting. And, who knew you can do seated sun salutation with an up dog. Claire's friends; if you need some extra support, are coming back from an injury, or an experienced yogi wondering about chair yoga, please give Claire's class a try. I bet you'll be glad you did.”
