Episode 13: Claire Missingham – Finding Flow and Having Faith

Hello, Hello —

I am so excited to share this week’s podcast with you and I can 100% guarantee that this guest has the most beautiful voice/accent of anyone I will interview. My guest is London-based teacher, Claire Missingham. Claire has over 16 years teaching experience and and runs a successful yoga teacher training program having trained over 125 teachers in the UK in the past few years. She is a Senior Teacher at triyoga, Europe’s leading yoga studio, and teaches worldwide. Claire is also a triathlete, competing regularly in Sprint Distance Triathlons after learning how to swim and cycle only in the past couple of years since turning 40!

I got to know Claire (@claire_yoga) well when Jason taught a TT in London a few years ago and I just adore her. She’s thoughtful, funny, and a devoted mom and she has a fascinating life story that led her to yoga — from her family’s practice of Sufism to her years leading a professional dance company, we piece it all together and talk about:

* Her spiritual childhood and the effect it had on her
* The importance of modeling self care and practice time for your children and family
* Her creating magic workshop (which I wish I could take!) and some of her ideas for carving out creative time
* Creating monthly themes for classes (and practicing with the flow of the moon!)
* Shradda or faith — How yoga helps us feel faith through tumultuous times

“Whatever reason people came to yoga in the first place, often the reason they’ll stay is a blossoming flower of faith inside of them. It’s faith that they’re not alone and that there are other people who believe what they do.” — Claire Missingham
