Just six weeks since opening, Claire has attracted a loyal, word of mouth following that has grown organically from Noosa locals and holiday makers alike looking for a fitness fix that’s fun, effective, and sustainable.
After moving to London to peruse a fast-paced career in sales and marketing of luxury goods, Claire became hooked on Pilates in the quest to find balance from the frantic lifestyle she was leading.
Soon after, Claire quit her job to study every course she could find on Pilates, yoga, nutrition, and coaching to chase her newfound passion for helping others optimise their health and wellbeing through movement and nutrition.
“Since learning to put myself first, life has unfolded in the most beautiful and natural of ways. I left London for New York where I met and fell in love with my husband. I travelled the world empowering women with exercise and further honing my skills and knowledge.
Claire’s studio is divided into two spaces, one for the reformer classes and one for the mat classes, which are separated by the reception area that has skincare goodies, candles, and active wear available to buy. The space is airy and bright fitted with windows looking out onto the Noosa River that create a blissful atmosphere capturing the golden hues of the morning and afternoon sunlight.
Claire’s intimate Pilates classes cater for a broad range of fitness levels offering two types of reformer classes, one focusing on strength and the other cardio, in addition to mat sessions, and two devoted entirely to new mums and mums to be. Private classes are available on request for those wanting a more one-on-one personalised experience. Kat Harding, otherwise known in insta-land as Yoga Kiss, is the guest yoga instructor who teaches Vinyassa and Yin at the studio.
