Clio is a yogi, a mother, a wife, a follower of the sun, the fun, the flow; an ex-NY’er, a former fashionista, a sutra student, an enlightened mind-in-training, a hot tea fiend, enchanted with LA, infatuated with fresh juice, a composter, a chanter, a recovering type A, an emissary for Joy, an Ambassador for Vimmia and Manduka and a 500 ERYT through YogaWorks. Yoga is my practice, my challenge, my calming, calling, community, religion, health, home and the Hanuman monkey on my back since 1995.
For 15 years I worked in Fashion and PR. I was well paid, well dressed and highly stressed. When my son was born, I left it all to follow the path of Love (aka dharma). And the moment I traded my stilettos for stillness, I began this journey from spinning to centered. I started as a yoga dabbler and over the years slowly grew into a yoga dealer and now am a dedicated yoga devotee. At the core of my teachings is a celebration for our capacity to expand, love and live more fabulously. With utter gratitude for this profound transformation, I bow to my teachers Joan Hyman, Annie Carpenter, Ruth Lauer-Manenti and Elena Brower, along with every student who appears to teach me how to look and see, listen and hear, and connect more fully each day.
