Message from Claudine
“Yoga gently breathed calm and comfort into my life when I was suffering unrelenting back and shoulder pain, a result of my corporate career. In order to pass the beauty of this healing art on to others, I have created Le Refuge Yoga, a serene Yoga studio in my own home, to share with you. I hope you will join me and explore this ancient practice:  I promise you will be transformed.”
