About Helen Clare  testimonial_1

Helen started on the path of her yoga journey 15 years ago, when she first tried yoga as a teenager. A journey that began with yoga as only a physical practice, has developed into a deep gratitude for all the additional spiritual, emotional and mental blessings that it brings. Having travelled the world and practised many styles of yoga with great teachers, Helen has found a love for a flowing vinyasa style, which makes up a large part of her personal practice alongside traditional Ashtanga.


Helen endeavours to continually learn as a student of yoga and improve as a teacher, in a constant effort to deepen her knowledge and understanding. Since her initial Sivananda teacher training in classical Hatha yoga, Helen has trained with many internationally recognised teachers such as Bridget Woods Kramer, Sianna Sherman, Kathryn Budig, Kino McGregor, Doug Swenson and John Scott. Her main teacher is Tiffany Cruikshank, founder of Yoga Medicine and internationally known Vinyasa Flow yoga teacher, with whom Helen is progressing towards her 500 and 1000 hour Advanced Yoga Medicine teacher status.

YOGA IN SCHOOLStestimonial_2

Helen has experience teaching to adults of all levels and to children and teenagers. Being a qualified primary school teacher enables Helen to understand the behaviours and requirements of children and young adults and the innumerable benefits that yoga offers them, particularly in the educational setting. Helen regularly teaches yoga as part of the curriculum in primary and secondary schools in Cornwall and Devon. Helen developed her way of teaching children in the primary classroom and has since also learned from Jo Manual at the Special Yoga Foundation. Helen has trained with, and been accredited by, Teen Yoga UK and is now part of the teaching team on the Teen Yoga teacher training courses.


Once a competitive swimmer to regional level, Helen has always been driven by sport, health and fitness. Now a keen trail runner and surfer, she is dedicated to spreading the health benefits of yoga and works closely with many athletes as part of their cross-training, injury prevention and therapy. Helen has gained the Leadership in Running Fitness certification and Sport Yoga instructor status, and all her yoga retreats have added elements of trail running, surfing or triathlon.


Helen teaches a Vinyasa Flow style of yoga to adults of all ages and abilities, influenced by her Ashtanga practice and her training in Hatha yoga. This is a dynamic flowing form of yoga, where postures are linked together using the breath. Each class will work the whole body but sometimes there is a special theme or focus area, and every class always ends in a much needed Savasana (final relaxation).
