8 Week Specialised Course Ideas with Claire Rodgers
(1 hour 15 minutes each session)
ENERGY BALANCING – an eight week course (based on Claire’s book ‘Awakening the Chakras Through Yoga’) aimed at re-balancing the whole system, physically, emotionally and energetically. Focusing on the energy centres or chakras and using a range of practices including asana, pranayama, mudra, mantra, bandha, meditation, Reiki healing, positive visualisation and affirmation.
CLEANSE AND DE-TOX – an eight week course focusing on the cleansing and purifying aspects of yoga, using asana, pranayama, kriyas and bandhas, as well as aspects of nutrition and positive thinking and motivation to balance and cleanse the body, boosting energy and positivity.
‘I was amazed and very excited about how quickly the specific exercises worked for me. They were obviously the perfect ones for my condition. After suffering many months of discomfort and pain in my right hip and leg, within a few days, the quality of discomfort I felt changed to something with more movement and mobility and less protective ‘holding’ of the body. The Reiki was wonderful, as were the breathing exercises. It’s almost as if Claire teaches you the tools specific to you in order for your mind/body to heal itself. Claire is highly intuitive and hits the spot with her suggestions and recommendations. Her yoga therapy is medicine for mind and body for the individual. Not just recommended – this is very necessary for everyone’s own well-being’ Nadine McBay, Massage Therapist

Week upon week, through mindfulness and gentle progression, you will learn much more about yourself through body movement, and begin to clear these obstacles and struggles on the yoga mat which will allow these to clear in your day-to-day life.
”I have found her to be extremely intuitive, compassionate and empathetic. She certainly does produce “yoga healing” in her sessions. For example, I couldn’t sit cross-legged or kneel a year ago and now I can – thanks to the tremendous knowledge Anthea has of human anatomy and physiology. I have found Anthea’s “yoga healing” has brought me peace of mind and friends have remarked that I have an “inner calm” and “better posture”. I am thrilled!” Pam

Claire began attending Hatha yoga classes over 20 years ago, whilst studying and working in mental health and Clinical Psychology in London. She was amazed at the benefits yoga brought to both physical well-being and peace of mind, and was lucky to begin attending workshops and retreats with her teacher’s teacher Swami Dharmananda Saraswati, early in her yoga journey.
On returning to Scotland, she continued her career in mental health, designing and facilitating a range of courses and classes to manage stress and improve emotional and physical well-being. She also continued to attend yoga, studying with Fiona Morton, before training with Yoga Scotland, completing the foundation course and two year teacher training in 2005.
Since then she has continued to teach, study and practise, studying restorative yoga with Judith Lasater, training to teach meditation with Swami Saradananda, and to teach Pranayama with Philip Xerri. She has also deepened her understanding of working with the energy or subtle body, training in Reiki, and co-authoring her first book Awakening the Chakras through Yoga.
She is currently training in Yoga Therapy, with Sue McLennan and the Scottish School of Yoga Therapy, deepening her experience and knowledge of using yoga techniques and practises to work on a one to one basis, and combining this training with her mental health, Psychology and Reiki background, to provide tailored and holistic one to one therapy, and is delighted to be part of Yoga Healing Glasgow.
Anthea saw very young that yoga can be part of your everyday life. Her mum started yoga when she was pregnant with Anthea and through Anthea’s formative years she began to see through others what benefits yoga can bring. In the early 90’s Anthea started going to different yoga, dance and movement classes, but it wasn’t until 2000 when Anthea’s father died that she personally experienced the profound support yoga can bring.
Anthea considers 2000 the year she found yoga, and holds June Mitchell and Gerry Keilty very dear to her heart for mentoring her to this place. After a matter of weeks with June and Gerry Anthea began her daily yoga practice, and it wasn’t long until she began her Yoga Teacher Training with June Mitchell and Julie Hanson (CYS Scotland) and qualified in 2004. Over these years Anthea continued to work within the Well Being industry and with clients on a 1-2-1 basis, before opening and developing Spas around the UK and training therapists in Massage and Spa Therapy. She went to every workshop going and also studied Aromatherapy, Reflexology, Natural Nutrition, Ayurvedic Therapies, Reiki and The Metamorphic Technique.
Between 2004-2005 Anthea continued her training in India and Thailand, which included deepening her own personal yoga practice with Pattabhi Jois, Rolf & Marcy Naujokat and going to Prana Nature Cure Yoga Hospital in Tamil Nadu where she learned about the administration of yoga therapies, kriyas (cleansing techniques) meditation and pranayama (breath-work) techniques for therapeutic benefits.
