Meet Your Instructor

Claire Weeks

Claire has been a physiotherapist, specialising in sports injuries for seventeen years. She owns her own private physiotherapy clinic in Devon treating patients with a wide variety of acute and chronic conditions. Throughout her adult life, Claire has attended many different forms of yoga classes around the world, experiencing the differing effects they have on your mind and body. Five years ago, Claire was introduced to Heinz Grills approach to yoga and it has significantly deepened her understanding of the human body, our movement and the relationship between our thoughts, our feelings and our actions or behaviours. This new understanding has transformed her clinical practice as a physiotherapist and awoken a new passion in her life. Claire strongly believes that this approach to yoga could be hugely beneficial for everyone in today’s world, no matter what their physical capability might be, as it is not limited to a few physical exercises. Instead, by performing the asana with concentration and consciousness, clear thinking, feeling and determined action, an individual can develop their power of guidance over life and gain an enriched sense of self. Therefore, alongside her work as a physiotherapist, Claire is now teaching yoga in small group classes, to individuals and also on retreats in Devon, in the hope that many others will experience the benefits that this approach to yoga has to offer.

Testimonials

What They Say

"I went to see Claire with an ongoing IT and Plantar Fasciitis problem. She gave me advice and exercises to do that she has built on session by session, to not only reduce the immediate pain and discomfort but to help to prevent both conditions from being long term problems. Claire's knowledge and help have been invaluable and have resulted me in completing a number of events including the London Marathon. I highly recommend her to any friends that have similar sporting injuries."

CT, Tiverton

"I go to Claire's Strength and Balance classes each week, they have really helped my muscle strength. I would definitely recommend them to everyone, gentle exercises which really make a difference."

MG, Bampton

“I have been treated by Claire over the past few years following a knee replacement and recently for treatment following a dislocated shoulder. Claire has been kind, caring and professional throughout and her expertise has helped my through a very difficult time. I thoroughly recommend her.”

MCP, Wellington

"Claire is a warm and friendly professional. She has created an excellent facility in Bampton that is pleasant to visit. Her advice is sound and obviously comes with experience; she is encouraging and patient. Highly recommended!"

AC, Bampton

"Claire is an expert physiotherapist and comes highly recommended. She rapidly diagnosed the root cause of my reoccurring injuries, explained everything to me clearly and concisely, and treated the problem so it was resolved far quicker than I had dared hope. Now injury and pain free, which is wonderful!"

RA, Fleet

"I can really recommend Claire, excellent running form/technique advice and it works!"

CY, Tiverton

"A brief note to thank you for all the help you gave me in the physiotherapy sessions with my shoulder - most effective, and I am very grateful"

JF, Fleet

"I had a back spasm whilst gardening. I called Claire on the Thursday as a first time patient, and she was able to see me that evening, which was fantastic. She assessed me that evening and then started working on removing the pain straight away. After two sessions, it was significantly better, and with exercises Claire set, by three sessions was virtually back to normal. She has an excellent manner, explains everything fully, and is very knowledgeable about how to resolve (and avoid future) injuries, particular useful for me as a golfer. Would recommend her highly"
