After moving from Berlin to San Francisco in 1996, Claudia Bartsch, C-IAYT became certified as a Shiatsu Massage Practitioner which deepened her understanding of the energetic structure of the body and the way it relates to health and well-being. Yoga became a journey to healing because it supported her on all levels. To deepen her personal practice, she took teacher training in 2000 and since completed over 1,500 hours of formal training. Claudia taught Yoga in studios, the San Francisco county jail, recovery centers, senior home, and to private students in their homes. She is passionate about working with people who want to utilize the teachings of Yoga for healing and transformation. She became a certified Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapist in 2011, combining her passion for Western psychology and Yoga. Claudia recently became one of the first Yoga therapists to be certified by the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
