Yoga for me has been a journey within, a practice of remembrance to our most connected self and an exploration deeper and deeper into our true essence: all loving, at peace and at home.Claudia Gallo
Originally from San Jose, Costa Rica, Claudia RYT 500 had spent over a decade traveling, living, and teaching around the world. She lived and taught mainly in Malaysia but constantly took workshops and other trainings in other parts of South East Asia and the USA, always deepening her practice and learning creative ways of sharing the yoga traditions. She has recently moved back to Costa Rica and has been working and collaborating with different Yoga retreat centers, studios, and communities, managing and facilitating retreats and offering her classes and special events.
Claudia did her first 200 hrs Teacher Training in India at Himalaya Yoga Valley in 2011, and her 300 hrs were completed in 2017 in New York at Yoga Works. Claudia also has a vast interest in healing and restorative practices, which lead her to dive deeper into energy work, Yin Yoga, Yoga Nidra, and most recently into the expressive embodiment practices.
With a background in sports and adventure and the third generation of instructors, Claudia’s energetic yet serene personality invites you on a journey within. Her well-rounded classes focus on the awareness of the body, the importance of the breath, calming of the mind, and opening of the heart, inviting you to a deeper connection and balance of the mind, body, nature, and spirit.
Each of Claudia’s classes is creative and sometimes challenging yet always very grounding. She pays special attention to proper alignment, and her cues are clear for both beginners and advanced practitioners. Claudia will always make you feel comfortable, at ease, and inspired by her down-to-earth personality. Her classes flow gracefully, and her voice nurtures you to places deep within.
Committed to sharing wellness in an integrative and functional way, Claudia’s events, workshops, and retreats reflect the love and passion she has for the practice and can transmit that and touch the practitioner’s hearts to look within, tap into their inner wisdom and come back into full trust.
