While Claudia considers herself a life-long student of yoga, her main goal is to share an accessible and healing yoga practice with local firefighters, veterans and active duty military and their families at no cost to them.
Claudia has developed several yoga focused events in collaboration with the veterans non-profit organizations VETOGA, Wounded Warrior Project, Mindful Warrior Retreats, and the US Special Forces Duskin & Stephens Foundation and in partnership with the Georgetown Men’s Basketball Team and the Washington Wizards NBA Team to bring veterans and athletes together on the mat.
During her 7 year tenure at lululemon, Claudia also spearheaded the lululemon regional CSR initiative, Here to Be, in partnership with the veteran-operated non-profit organization VETOGA, aimed to bring yoga teacher training, yoga classes and meditation to veterans, active duty military and first responders and their families.
Claudia has recently founded the corporate wellness company WRKwell, to deliver VOI (Value on Investment) focused stress management, personal development, and employee engagement programs to local corporations. WRKwell combines the power of yoga and meditation with leadership and corporate responsibility training to provide tools for both organizations and corporate employees to thrive in their work environment.
