British  born Yoga teacher, Claire Hartley, is known for bringing the deeper  layers and meaning of Yoga and Yoga philosophy through all of her  classes and workshop experiences, leaving the practitioners with an  experience of the authentic joyful Self. She always does this with a  healthy dose of her Brit wit and sensibility! She teaches weekly at her  LA studios Rising Lotus Yoga, as well as trainings and conferences.

Her  journey begin when she was fortunate enough to stumble into the  beginning of the western Yoga revolution in New York city in the early  90s. The east village was still known as Alphabet City and it was here  she found her healing and passion for Yoga at the Jivamukti Yoga Center.  A deeply spiritual center led by Sharon Gannon and David Life who were  intimidating, wild and incredibly uncompromising in their conviction  that Yoga was a path to Self-Realization.

She  moved to Los Angeles in 2001 where she continued her practice and  trained with some of the best teachers in the world including an  apprenticeship with Senior Iyengar teacher Lisa Walford. This training  along with other studies informed her vinyasa flow style with a deep  love of alignment and functional movement, that if yoga is about  relationships then building a more healthy and sustainable and joyful  one with the body and movement can lead to a deeper inquiry into the  self.

In April 2006 she opened and co-founded Rising Lotus Yoga,  a busy and thriving studio in Los Angeles, attracting practitioners  seeking alignment based Vinyasa Yoga classes with healthy doses of  dharma talks, chanting and joyful community.

In 2008 she created the popular Rising Lotus Teacher Training Program,  along with Daniel Stewart,  which teaches trainees how to bring  intelligent alignment and sequencing to students as well as bringing  real meaning back to the yoga practice with dharma talks,  self-reflection and a commitment to stay constantly curious to the path  of becoming a teacher of yoga, which ultimately is a teacher of the  heart. In 2018 she opened a second studio in Santa Clarita, CA.
