Hi, I’m Claire Russell Burns a yoga teacher with a passion for helping ladies who are experiencing core and pelvic floor issues. Whether you are postnatal or post-menopausal, whether you’ve had babies or not, whether you exercise regularly or not at all, the specialist classes I teach are for all women of all ages and experiences.

I came to motherhood relatively late, having both my children in my 40’s and I moved to Brighton in 2011 after my first. I started working teaching mums with toddlers in tow and I had a real shift in my personal practice during this time. I had diastasis recti after both pregnancies and I soon discovered that I needed more than a classical yoga practice to recover. I was meeting and teaching ladies who had all sorts of postnatal issues, so I consulted and took courses with women’s health physios, explored the work of movement experts in this field and tried a variety of postnatal recovery programs.


Finally my path lead me to the Restore Your Core program. A combination of yoga pilates and functional movement that resonated with me on so many levels. I jumped at the chance to do the teacher training and I have learnt so much in the process. I have also found a love for working in this area of womens’ health. I feel there is little support for these ladies, some often suffering in silence and I intend to be doing this work for as long as I can.



I’d love to hear from you if you have any questions regarding my classes and workshops. Simply fill out the form and I’ll be in touch as soon as possible.
