Every last Wednesday evening of the month.
Registration: email@example.com up to the Monday evening.
Time: 19.00 – 20.30 / Price: Fr. 50.-
If you respond to the question of meditating with "Yes, I know, I should practice, but ..." or you simply say: "Meditation? - That's not for me. My mind is too restless,” then the last Wednesday evening of the month, is a good opportunity to consolidate your practice and calm your restless mind. In addition to meditating together in a group we will also be looking at one aspect around the theme of meditation during each meeting. There will also be room for questions and discussion if you wish.
Previous knowledge or experience of meditation is not necessary. Everyone, who is interested in the topic of meditation and yoga philosophy is warmly welcome.
The aim of these evenings is to establish a regular practice and to build a solid foundation for you in order to be able to meditate regularly at home.
The life of a yoga teacher can sometimes be very lonely and often there is a lack of exchange between us as well as a lack of growing together. Thus the idea came about to offer this 20 hour programme. According to the group’s needs I will adapt the content but definitely included will be the following:
15 December 2019
19 January 2020
2 February 2020
3 May 2020
Time: 10.00 – 16.00
Place: YogaTopia, Geissbüelstrasse 21, 8704 Herrliberg
Price: Fr. 540.- for the whole programme
Fr. 150.- for individual days (priority will be given to those who can attend the whole programme). Register: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you answered YES to any of the above questions then this might be just the course for you!
From January - June 2020 Claire will offer a process-oriented course that will deeply transform you and your understanding of the practices of yoga. The organisation of the course will be on a modular basis located at YogaTopia in Herrliberg. The 5th and final module will take place during a week's retreat in a beautiful location in Italy. The number of participants is limited in order to ensure maximum individual attention and to keep the group as a harmonious whole.
Module 5 - the Retreat
7 day retreat in the beautiful, newly-renovated Boutique Hotel Country House Montessino, Italy. In the distant past on one of the picturesque hills of the Monferrato, the hamlet of Montessino belonged to a large Italian wine-growing family. In 2016 Claudia and Alessandro acquired one of the historic houses (built 1850) and restored it with great passion and care for detail. This is where we will spend our final week of the 100 hour immersion course together. This is truly a place to “lean back and enjoy the pleasures of life in harmony with nature, following the motto Carpe Diem” as they say on their website.

“In the first week we will enjoy an extended morning practice of 3 – 3.5 hours. At daybreak we will greet the new morning in silence with a meditation, kriya and pranayama practice. After that we will flow in a dynamic asana practice in which the focus is on the precise placement of the body so that body, mind and soul, as a team, become one-pointed in their focus. In this way we create conscious awareness, restore balance and connect to our inner essence. Allow yourself to be inspired!
In this first week the afternoons are free for you to enjoy the beautiful beaches, walk in the cool olive groves, or simply treat yourself to a massage and relax in a hammock in the shade.
This week can be visited together with week 2 or they can be booked separately.
During week 2 we will practice 5 – 5.5 hours a day. The morning schedule is the same as during week 1 but in the evening we will enjoy 2 hours of restorative/yin yoga in addition to mantra practice. Thus week 2 is an intensive yoga week.
Claire is a passionate yoga teacher and has been a yoga student for over 24 years. Her teaching style is clear, purposeful, humorous and engaging. Her focus is on correct alignment in order for optimal breathing and flow of energy to take place. Each and every moment on or off the mat is an opportunity to live and breathe freely - it begins with conscious placement of the body, evening out imbalances and ultimately finding peace of mind! Claire adapts her classes to suit the needs of the participants and where necessary provides modifications of positions so that each participant is able to practice at his level of experience and deepen his experience.
Accommodation (7 nights) in a double room in ‘Haus Hoys’ or an apartment. (Double rooms may be used for single occupancy at a slight increase in price.)
Delicious breakfast buffet and vegetarian evening meal using local fresh products
All yoga classes
Shared taxi to and from the airport
During this intense yoga week (5 hours practice per day) we will enjoy a holistic practice. In the morning session we begin in silence with a meditation and pranayama practice and then move into a dynamic Hatha Flow practice. In the evening session we sing mantras and wind body and mind down with a restorative practice.
During this week you have the opportunity to leave daily life behind and to dive deep into your yoga practice, connect to your essence, restore your energy and create a healing space within you. This connection to your essence enables you to feel a sense of freedom on all levels: physical, emotional, spiritual. It allows you to come home to the Self.
Claire offers an integrated, holistic practice that awakens consciousness on all levels. Through moments of stillness in meditation, moments of concentration in pranayama (breath work) and the precise practice of asanas (yoga poses) consciousness is awakened and transformation can take place.
