Location: New York City
Claudia Jasper is a New York City based Yoga Instructor at Equinox, Pure Yoga NYC, The Yoga Room and Exhale Spa. Claudia found the practice of yoga 15 years ago following a thyroid surgery in 2004. Her practice of yoga stems from her need to heal and still the body and mind from the fast pace and stressful environments which surround our ever changing world. Claudia, a native New Yorker, had worked previously in the highly competitive and intense Fashion industry for 20 years, dedicating much of her time to the industry, including obtaining her Masters in Fashion Merchandising from Parsons, The New School in 2011. Specializing in Retail Management, Claudia found that the practice of yoga helped to balance the demanding and stressful nature of her career, especially through her concentration in breath work.
Claudia is certified E-RYT 200hr Yoga Certified by The Yoga Alliance, studying under Kay Kay Clivio and Adam Vitolo of Pure Yoga NYC in 2016. She later obtained her 100 hr ERYT Mentorship certificate in Hot Power Yoga and Hot Vinyasa from Julia Stephens of Pure Yoga NYC in 2017. She currently is working to finish her 500hr RYT this Fall with Yoga Medicine under teacher Tiffany Cruikshank.
Claudia teaches an athletic flow, while accentuating strength, mindfulness, flexibility and balance within every pose, using empowering music, which is an important element to her classes. She attends continuing education workshops and study groups, and is devoted to the on-going learning experience of being a teacher and student.
Claudia continues to reside in New York City with her Husband John and English Cocker Spaniel, Jake.
