What the students are saying
I count myself lucky to have had Clare Bassett as my trainer on a number of Yoga and Meditation trainings I’ve completed.
Clare is a generous and accomplished teacher, warm, supportive, grounded, inclusive and inspiring. She is passionate about Yoga and Meditation and her deep knowledge and experience shine through in her teaching. Clare teaches with crystal clarity and makes everything really accessible and understandable. Her training style places strong emphasis on making Yoga & Meditation accessible, safe and enjoyable for her trainees and their students.
I’ve trained with many great teachers from around the world and Clare is up there as one of my favourite and most respected. You’ll come awake from her courses with a smile on your face, joy in your heart, and feeling competent and confident in the skills she has taught you. More than that, you’ll come away knowing you’ve made a new friend and trusted mentor.
Thank you Clare
Clare was one of my first ever meditation teachers. Her gentle approach and deep knowledge of yoga and meditation is something that will stay with me forever. Thank you for starting me on this beautiful path.

I absolutely loved teacher training with Clare! She’s very knowledgeable. Her tone of voice is so soothing, which makes any meditations even more enjoyable. She’s such a beautiful and kind soul and I am very happy we connected 🙏 I can’t recommend her enough to anyone interested in Pre- and postnatal Yoga as well as Meditation and Yoga Nidra. Thanks Clare ❤️
Julia Gast, Yoga teacherIt’s true when they say… when the student is ready the teacher will appear, and Clare my meditation teacher showed up🙏
Loved this meditation teacher training with Clare, love her relaxed and gentle flow to her teaching. Plenty of time spent in teaching practice with lots of help and advice from Clare on how to hold a meditation circle. Experienced both in-person and zoom classes which worked really well for me. I have begun putting my teachings into practice especially how to structure a class and have since started my own meditation circle.
If meditation teacher training is calling you I highly recommend Clare.
Gratitude and thanks Clare 🙏 Sharon Ennis, healer and meditation teacher
