I know that being told you have a weak pelvic floor or pelvic organ prolapse goes beyond the physical and can leave you feeling let down.
I understand as a mum of three just how important it is to be able to run after your children freely without worry. I also know how hard it is to find time to focus on your own self-care & it stays constantly on your to-do list. This is why I created online courses so that you can access the tools you need to conquer your core in your own time in the comfort of your own home.
Claire is a straight-talking and inspiring Scottswomen with an inclusive yet exacting and rigorous approach. She has an absolute passion for all things Pilates but her manner is enabling and supporting and she maintains a sense of humour and humility throughout all her client interactions.
Claire is the living embodiment of “you are the architect of your own happiness.” After discovering Pilates in 1998 as a young dance student when it resolved her debilitating knee injury she has been evangelical about the benefits ever since. Teaching since 2002, Claire has a wealth of qualifications and never stops learning – training & certifying with Pilates Institute, Fit To Deliver, APPI, STOTT, Natural Bodies and of course Polestar, and most recently, becoming a Second Generation Teacher graduating from the Lolita San Miguel Master Mentorship Program 2019. Mum of 3 Claire has been a studio owner since 2005, is a Polestar Pilates Educator and host for Polestar in the North of England and runs an apprenticeship program bridging the gap between training and teaching. In 2018 Claire expanded on an existing venture and founded Hosted By Movement Education as part of her mission to build awareness and participation locally and globally.
Claire’s teaching has always been influenced by her own experiences. Initially, Pilates helped her recover from knee injuries as a young dancer and then greatly improved her form when she returned. Years later when she had her first son Claire discovered she had diastasis recti, where the abdominal muscles part along the line of the linea alba. Claire then studied this condition and trained in lots of ways to resolve it. Later after her third son she discovered she had a mild prolapse, this lead her into the next phase of study and training. Ultimately Claire was determined to learn what she could to understand, resolve and help other women with similar conditions. Not simply by giving exercises but by empowering women to understand their own anatomy, shift the paradigm around continence as a women and help them help themselves for the long term.
