Clara was introduced to Gyrotonic in Seattle, with Master Trainer Magali Messac, when she was a dancer at Pacific Northwest Ballet. After her dance career, Clara maintained an active life, snowboarding, playing tennis, climbing mountains, and raising three boys. A chronic back injury and basic wear and tear, lead Clara’s return to Gyrotonic. Through the Gyrotonic movement system, she again found mobility and strength within her own body. Clara became a trainer at Kinespirit Circle under Master Trainer, Chantal Deeble--taking her final Level 1 certification, in 2018, with Master Trainer, Kathy Van Patten. As a trainer, Clara brings her love of movement, desire to share the physical benefits of Gyrotonic with her clients, and ultimately, her belief that when the body feels strong, fluid, and controlled--the spirit is liberated.
