Claudia Neuman, E-RYT 500, YACEP, MSW, was born in Los Angeles and began her formal yoga training in 1984 at Yoga works in Santa Monica, California. In the course of her training at Yoga Works, she was able to study with and assist some of today's top teachers, (Rod Stryker, Eric Shiffman) as well as study with Pattabi Jois, (the creator of Astanga Yoga). In 1993, she was initiated into the ISHTA yoga system by Rod Stryker . While at USC completing a Masters degree in Social Work, she taught yoga to students and faculty alike. In 2005, she received certification in Anusara yoga from John Friend. In 2012, she began studying again with Yogarupa Rod Stryker in the Tantra tradition, completing several of the Para Yoga Master Training programs. Claudia's classes reflect her rich background of yoga experience as well as the love and dedication to her life-long practice of yoga. Look for Claudia's regular quarterly articles in Pathways Magazine. Try out one of her yoga classes at Blue Heron Wellness.

Claudia Neuman leads the Teacher Training that includes lecture, on-the-mat practice, hands on experience, group discussions and interactive activities. Yoga asana (postures), pranayama (breath) and meditation will be explored. Although several yoga modalities will be explored, Claudia offers specific emphasis in Vinyassa Krarma (logical progression to a targeted goal), flow, yin and her in-depth study of the Para Yoga tradition.
