Comments from Our Community
This was my first time sticking with a 30-day yoga challenge, and I really loved it. The structure of the week was perfect, with the right amount of slow mixed into the more intense practices. I felt committed and motivated to get on my mat every day and looked forward to seeing what the day's practice would be.
The live classes on Saturday were my favorite, having not been to a live yoga class in a year. I have followed Clara for years, from her days on the Gaiam app, and assumed I would never have the opportunity to practice with her in real life, so it was such a wonderful treat to feel like I was in class and in community with her. Great challenge, app, content, and the best teacher.
Clara has always seemed like an old friend I met at this party, who knows where or when that I wasn’t sure I wanted to go to, but I’m sure glad I went because I met this really cool person who changed my life.
And so it continues many, many years later; I have become a better practitioner, student, and teacher, not to mention mother, partner and overall better human since coming into contact with this beautiful soul.
Something about her teaching creates an allowance in your body that enables you to experience what it truly means to find ease through effort and strength through release. Her teachings have helped me increase my awareness and appreciation of my body, what its capable of and how it moves.

Taking Clara's 300-hour yoga teacher training was the most transformative experience in my practice and teaching since completing a 200-hour.
She taught us with precision and creativity to design sequences that make sense and feel beautiful.
We explored the art of teaching advanced postures with skill and the safety of students in mind. We learned to teach through kramas, stages of the process, to meet students where they are at. I highly recommend this program to anyone with an interest in vinyasa or who is intending to teach this style to others.

In the 30+ years I have been practicing, I can name only a very few teachers who really offered me what yoga can deliver, and Clara is definitely one of them. She plays your body like a musical instrument. She's like the jazz musician of yoga teachers, riffing and meandering down creative pathways.
No staying inside the lines with her teaching. Live classes can be on Zoom, so your adjustments are called out. So she'll get to know you if you show up to your mat.
It seems with every passing year, the love and gratitude I have for the community grows deeper. The PWC community is one space that has been and continues to be a big blessing.
I love the PWC community for how real it feels; it's free of judgment and safe to share where you are in your yoga or life journey, including the struggles you are facing or any raw emotions you’re carrying at the moment. I believe a big part of my dharma is to hold space for others, and I get to practice that here.
Practice with Clara has something for everyone at every level. It is the most prolific practice that I have found with an extensive amount of content organized in a way that makes it easy to find just what you need or to just follow one of the many recommendations.
I would and have recommended Practice with Clara to anyone that is curious or already has an existing practice.
