Clare Pritchard has been teaching yoga for over 15 years and has travelled to both India and the USA to enrich and deepen her understanding of the practice. She is a certified Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga Facilitator (TCTSY-F) with a passion for embodied healing and social justice. She began her yoga path practicing in the Iyengar Yoga methodology, and became a Certified Iyengar Yoga Teacher in 2003. Clare became involved in running the successful yoga program at West CASA (Centre Against Sexual Assault) in 2011, and has since introduced the program to CASA House in Melbourne's CBD. Clare completed her TCTSY-F certification through The Trauma Center, Boston in 2018 and continues to offer yoga sessions in the CASA's as part of a holistic body-based therapy program offered free to clients of these services.

Clare holds both Certificate 1 & 2 in the Radiant Child Yoga Program and has also completed a course in Yoga Therapy for Children and the Zenergy Kids Yoga Foundation Course Certificate.

Clare worked for many years in the Community Sector so approaches her yoga teaching and practice with a far greater depth than merely 'running a business'. Her passion for introducing yoga to survivors of trauma led Clare to her ongoing work with clients of West CASA and CASA House, and she has also offered programs at North CASA, SECASA, Counterpoint Young Women's Refuge, and the GirlStorey program (a program run by the YWCA for marginalised young women). She has also facilitated programs in a voluntary capacity at the Maribyrnong Immigration Detention Centre and the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

what people are saying about Clare Pritchard

I have had the pleasure of doing trauma sensitive yoga with Clare for the past few years. I've never had such a gentle, genuine and restorative experience as when being led by Clare. I've found the trauma sensitive yoga classes complimentary to the therap

I have done more than 2 terms of restorative yoga with Clare and I don't think I could recommend her highly enough. I have struggled with some injuries and also PTSD and have always felt cared for and supported by Clare both mentally and physically. Her yoga classes certainly improved my movement and strength without pushing me too far. She is truly a great teacher. (Shirley)
