YOGA, MASSAGE AND MAKEUP
A little insight to my life as a yoga teacher, massage therapist and makeup artist and how it has evolved and unfolded over the years into the well-being services I now offer.
It all started with makeup, my love of it and how my Mum was a huge influence in my choice of becoming a makeup artist. Her collection of Rimmel makeup in the 1980’s led me into this world along with experimenting ways to heal and camouflage my teenage troublesome skin through to my adult acne. My love of skincare remains as enthusiastic as ever, and I still carefully manage my sensitive and reactive skin. I’ve always loved researching and expanding my knowledge and skills, and because of my own experiences, this motivates me to help others. I have an enormous amount of empathy and experience in dealing with skin issues and really do understand how it feels to manage skin issues.
My own experiences motivates me to help others
Bridal makeup is a true passion of mine and l love bringing a calming energy to the wedding preparations. I specialise in natural makeup to enhance beauty, creating an elegant and timeless feel, bringing out what you love about yourself. I gained an ITEC Diploma in Fashion, Media and Theatrical Make up from West Thames College. I’m also a qualified level 3 beauty and massage therapist, certified by NVQ, City & Guilds and VTCT. I’ve trained and worked with Elemis, Caudalie, Ren, Phytomer, Bare Minerals and Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic Skincare.
Relaxation and taking time for yourself is also a big part of what I offer. Its not just about how you want to look, its how you want to feel too, my services are all about investing in yourself. My massage and facial services bring an at-home spa experience to you and I offer Neal’s Yard Remedies Organic Skincare massage and facial treatments from my home in Camelford, North Cornwall for individuals and for group bookings I work further afield, across Devon and Cornwall.
Feeling is a big part in what I offer – how does something make you feel – let your heart lead
My massage work led me to look deeper within body work as I found myself recommending yoga to my massage clients as a way to help movement and general well-being. Through my own personal practice I found space, not only physically in my body, but mentally too. I felt balanced, calmer and more authentically me. As with all my services, when I find something that helps me, I want to share it. I’d like others to feel and experience the benefits that I gain from yoga, and so, after a few serendipitous moments and meetings, I trained as a yoga teacher. This has been one of the best decisions of my life and I cannot imagine my life without yoga. I am, as my yoga mentor, Amy says “spreading the light that is yoga”.
I’m a fully qualified Vinyasa and Yin Yoga Teacher, trained by the amazing Amy Jones and Jane Cradick, and accredited by Yoga Alliance Professionals with a 300 hour Yoga Teacher qualification. I run weekly in-person classes in Tintagel in Cornwall, weekly online classes as part of Claire’s Well-Being Club as well as 1-2-1’s and private group instruction. I am especially passionate about teaching beginners and my style is a mix of hatha and vinyasa yoga, and create uplifting, energising and calming practices. Bringing balance, flexibility, strength and inner calm to your life on and off the mat.
Working with you from the inside out – by blending yoga, massage treatments and makeup artistry to bring you an inner calm and outer glow
I’m originally from Buckinghamshire and I now live on the North Cornish coast with my inspiring, adventurous husband, Andrew, our cheeky Bombay cat, Obisidan and Bosnian rescue dog, Elk. I’m calm, easy going, very down to earth and love a good giggle. I’m happiest with a cup of tea in my hand, soaking up a bit of history, practising yoga and trying my hardest to channel my inner Audrey Hepburn, so if I sound like your cup of tea, contact me.
