Clara originally trained as a registered nurse, then gained a degree in Printed Textiles, became a performance artist and costume designer until fifteen years later a severe tendonitis arm injury stopped any costume making and she began to step back to her health and wellness interest by finding effective management tools for the condition.
After experiencing Acupuncture, Homeopathy, Massage, Shiatsu, Reiki and Physiotherapy, Clara wanted to find a self-management tool to take anywhere. Qigong came in to her life, the fuller story can be listened to via the Soundcloud link at the bottom of this page. Some years later Clara graduated from the College of Elemental Chi Kung in London, after a 4 year Teacher Training programme. After teaching for over 15 years she was asked by several keen students to offer a Foundation Teacher Training programme that has been running successfully for over 5 years now.
Clara has been teaching Qigong, Meditation and Reiki in and around the New Forest area from early 2000. Since 2010, Clara has expanded her training to Europe, offering retreats in France, Spain and Austria.
Clara is passionate about sharing the energy gathering and self-management potential Qigong can give the quality of our lives, She is innately curious, likes to have fun as well as uncovering wise teachings. After years of being fiercely independent, Clara knows that non of us are alone, we are all part of the ONE background presence yet each of us offer our own gifts and talents to the whole. One of hers is to share the wisdom of Qigong as a key part of understanding our energetic nature as we all move forward in these evolving times.
Clara's other interests continue to be creative and musical along, hosting the ever popular Chi Time Radio show on the Soul Traveller Network having a deep interest in what makes people tick. She also runs the inspiring and successful Conscious Living Events company in Bournemouth UK where world class teachers and speakers come to share their wisdom and has invited the well respected Qigong teacher, author and researcher Master Kenneth Cohen to share his Primordial Qigong sequence with us in June 2017.
