Claire began mindfulness practices as a keen meditator with Friends of the Western Buddhist Order (FWBO), now Triratna Buddhist Centre. In 2004 she enhanced her skills while in Bergedorf, Germany, where she consciously devoted time at a regular practice of sitting and walking meditation. Science has finally caught up with what the ancients have been practicing for centuries! When monks in Tibet used mindfulness techniques, MRI scans of their brains showed more neural connections and activity than their non-meditating counterparts. Becoming more mindful improves:
• Focus & attention span
• Strategic thinking
• Innovative thinking
• Better decision making
• Clarity of mind
Claire offers a 45-minute Mindfulness Presentation and/or a Corporate Mindfulness Course, customised for your requirements. Contact Claire for more details...
“I had reached a point of total exhaustion by the time I scheduled a Prakruti Assessment with Claire. Claire explained to me about the Aryuvedic principles and I resolved to invest in myself by taking a course of treatment. I also invested in a series of private yoga lessons so that I could practice more regularly on my own- whether at home or travelling. Claire not only helped me learn how to “do” physical poses safely, she also brought awareness of the fuller meaning of “Asanas” and, in this way, has helped to empower me to “walk” on my own”.
"Dear Claire ~ Ever since I’ve been attending your yoga classes, something has changed. It is difficult to put words to how I feel, but I nevertheless want to try. I wake up in the morning with a smile... and I don't know why, but I am glad for the joy I have. My back is not hurting when I get out of bed... not because it has miraculously healed, but because I learned to pull my navel in. I walk on air the whole day, walk more upright by pulling my shoulders back and down. That somehow lifts my spirit too and the world around me seems happier. I feel like painting, sculpting, dancing, running and gliding on a cloud, all at the same time. In short, I am filled with happiness and joy... why and how I don't really know, but the only thing I changed in my life was to regularly attend to your yoga class. Thank you for being my teacher!"
"This is to testify that Claire Stephenson is competent and efficient at performing reflexology. She has given me several treatments after my recent hip replacement operation which I have found to be beneficial and she exercised due care".
