Instructor — Claire Wilde

Claire Wilde found yoga after a spinal fusion surgery at age 12 left her feeling hopelessly disconnected from her body. Linking breath with movement, exploring her body’s abilities, and getting comfortable with its limitations allowed her to come back home to herself. She delights in holding space for other people’s explorations of their own unique body-minds, and her classes are relaxing, meditative, and deeply nourishing.

Claire completed her 200-hour Teacher Training in 2016 at Sellwood Yoga. In addition, she completed her Prenatal Yoga Teacher Training in 2017 with Shana Celnicker-Chong at The Bhaktishop, and her Kids Yoga Teacher Training with Annie Kobliska-Becker and Rosey Wyland in 2013 at Sellwood Yoga. She was a labor doula for several years, and teaches a yoga-based childbirth prep curriculum called The Yoga Way to Birth. She particularly loves working with children, families, and people in any stage of the childbearing year; you can learn more at
