About Stillness In Motion

My name is Claudia Silas and I am the creator of Stillness In Motion Yoga and Massage.

I was born and raised in East London and began my movement journey training as a professional dancer and performance artist. After graduating, I began to travel widely, study other movement practices and complete a yoga teacher training. Following my return to London, I qualified as a Soft Tissue Massage Therapist and began working as a teacher and therapist in my local community, studios and corporate settings.

In recent years, my teaching practice has developed significantly as I have completed training in parent and baby yoga, baby massage and children’s yoga. I also gained an MA in contemporary dance, with my focus being on injuries and mental health. 

During the last year, I have worked extensively for Adventure Babies Waltham Forest, bringing books to life through storytelling and sensory play.

Now residing in Sherwood, Nottingham, I am delighted to be offering a variety of sessions for the whole family and look forward to meeting you in a session very soon.
