The thought of practicing with online classes at home might feel initially isolating, however it has been such a beautiful gift to discover our growing community of yogis is vibrant, thriving, and that our connection together has only strengthened as we gather in live-streaming and recorded practices. We are stronger together, and we need one another.
Yoga practices and teachings have always been transmitted and held within a community of practitioners... you have arrived.
In the spirit of this community, fellow yogis have been contributed their 'Views from the Mat'... illustrating the range of perspectives as we gather and explore our common ground. The photos reflect an incredible variety of environments... and interestingly the practice brings us to the same placeless place of quiet and wellbeing.

The breathing techniques that you taught me helped me go through the pain, especially the moo-ing breathing!!! I practiced your online classes so much it was almost like I could hear you coaching me through the contractions. Your classes and workshop were the most useful things I did to prepare for birth and I am so, so thankful. I was so scared about giving birth, but the preparation with you really made me have a good labour. I will definitely recommend this to every pregnant woman I know.

For more than 7 years now, whenever life has tested me, I’ve turned to Clearlight for support. She has a unique ability to guide one on a journey inside the self, using yoga nidra as a vehicle. By leading you on a path of inquiry, she can help you to find your own deeply buried inner truth. With her help, I have experienced profound emotional and physical healing, at a level I would never have imagined possible.

Clearlight's profound depth of knowledge and her ability to reveal the rich subtleties of this practice with such clarity left me in awe and kept me inspired to dig deeper. During our meetings, I found myself wanting to write everything down as she illuminated new aspects of these teachings. It was an amazing learning experience made all the more enriching by Clearlight's exceptional teaching ability. Her name says it all.

I've found that the live-streamed practices with you offer a much deeper and more beneficial experience than any recorded videos. Following our first practice together online, I experienced such a profound sense of peacefulness - it was as though all the stress and anxiety that the pandemic had brought was filtered, and for the first time since it all began, I was given a real opportunity to settle and rest.

I first met Clearlight when I took her pregnancy yoga classes over a decade ago, on the enthusiastic recommendation of friends. The mental and physical approaches to pregnancy and labor that she taught us were invaluable in my own very lengthy delivery. I've kept going to her classes ever since, initially to mom and baby yoga and now, for the past several years, to her evening mindful yoga courses. Clearlight has a calm, friendly, professional, and reassuring presence that has earned her a devoted following. Clearlight is simply an amazing, inspiring yoga teacher.

Clearlight’s yoga is definitely for both body and mind. I have done both pregnancy and mom-and-baby yoga with her, and they have both been so amazingly helpful. Pregnancy yoga gave me a space to find some weekly moments of calm for myself, tools for labour, and trained muscles I did not know I had. Mom and baby yoga has been amazing for the community, understanding and strengthening my changed body, and for meeting the emotional and mental challenges and wonderfulness of motherhood.

Such an incredible experience. I did both pregnancy yoga and mama & baby yoga and both were such important parts of my journey towards becoming a mother. Clearlight is such an amazing teacher and the support you feel being part of a group of women who are all going through different stages of the same experience is really special. I definitely recommend.

I needed these practices more than I ever thought. The rhythms of your class, your voice, your reminders, your peace. Thank you endlessly for offering these online. It is truly a gift. I'm holding far more stress in my body than I thought possible and I can't thank you enough for providing a way to help release it and rejuvenate. It was so soothing to nourish myself and let go of the stress. I feel extremely lucky to be able to introduce my practice back into my life right now and grateful for it to be led by you.

Clearlight is a wonderful person and teacher. She creates a really welcoming environment and her classes are very well structured. The prenatal partner class was perfect to learn more about labour and prepare for it, and the mama-baby yoga is amazing to learn to live with a whole new baby. It's the best place to be when you are still just figuring things out with this tiny human.

I followed Clearlight's prenatal classes during both of my pregnancies and enjoyed very much the gentle movements and breathing exercises. Those breathing exercises have been particularly helpful during labour. I also enjoyed mom & baby yoga with Clearlight and then got hooked up with the Mindfulness Yoga classes. Such an important practice for body and mind and I can't imagine my week without this practice. Clearlight is a gifted teacher that I highly recommend!
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the gift of connection. While explaining our sessions to a friend it, it took me back to your kindness and gentleness with me in our healing sessions together. You were the only one who made me feel safe enough to connect to my feelings for the first time after more than a decade of disconnection and trauma. I will be eternally grateful to you.
Thanks for these wonderful classes! Although I really enjoy in person classes and the charm and magic of this modality, I surprisingly really enjoy the online version of your classes too! I didn’t think it was for me, but you did a great job at making it interesting and warm but also practical. These online classes are amazing, especially the fact that recorded classes are available, super convenient for new parents ;)
