Claudia Simpson

Certified Yoga Instructor & Yoga Therapist

Claudia has been teaching yoga and leading workshops since 1990. Passionate about yoga as a tool for healing, she has served people in treatment for heart disease, cancer, and mental health issues.  

In her private yoga therapy practice, many athletes and musicians have been able to improve performances by releasing long-held stressors. From 2004-2019, She co-led Yoga Teacher Training Programs in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Her skillful guidance, compassion and gentle style have inspired hundreds of students to become healthier and happier. She is certified in Kripalu Yoga, Cardiac Yoga, Reiki, and Phoenix Rising Yoga Therapy. While the study of yoga is life-long and teachers are everywhere, she has been influenced by the yogic lineage of Paramahansa Yogananda and Swami Shankarananda.

Off the mat, she enjoys playing the piano, running, spending time with her husband Don, a UU minister, and her adult daughter Amelia, a NYC based actor.
