Claudia is a Brooklyn native with a background in performance, movement, entrepreneurship, and energy healing. In 1997, while getting a BFA from Tisch at NYU, she walked into Jivamukti on Lafayette Street and thus began her yoga journey. She began teaching in 2002 after being certified in Los Angeles in the Ghosh/Bikram method, and is an E-RYT and YACEP with Yoga Alliance leading ongoing trainings throughout the year. She is thrilled to have completed her 800 Hour certification with Rima Rabbath.
Claudia has been a part of running several small businesses, including her own yoga school which she owned and operated in Brooklyn from 2009 - 2015. She loves incorporating the multiple modalities and tools she's learned over the years, and is also certified within the Roll Model Method, is a ReUnion Kinesiologist, and Body/Neural System reboot practitioner. Above all, nothing beats the bhav of a killer track, and her love for music is as much a part of her class as the sacred satsang and the importance of optimal alignment. She is grateful to be a part of the Jivamukti community, and to Sharon-Ji and David-Ji for inspiring a method that keeps the soul of yoga in the daily practice.
