Claudia Conty Chambers founded Raleigh NC Yoga in 2008, with the goal of making a wholistic and authentic yoga practice available to more people in the Raleigh North Carolina area.
Claudia always had a deep connection to the earth and an appreciation of its healing energies. As a child, she joined her mother in yoga poses. In her native Puerto Rico, she watched her godfather (a teacher of transcendental meditation) master various yoga asanas and admired her great aunt practicing Thai Chi on the balcony overlooking the ocean. At an early age, she understood that those beautiful postures and practices consisted of more than just breathing and stretching. She knew that they could bring health, peace and happiness for the body, mind and soul.
In 2003, she made the practice the yoga part of her everyday lifestyle. Five years later, she decided she wanted to share the practice with others and trained to be a yoga teacher under the guidance of Elizabeth Hoffman’s UrbanBliss.
Over the past nine years, Claudia has worked with thousands of yoga students from all backgrounds and at all experience levels, with her oldest client at 95 years (young) and using breathing techniques to calm her baby daughter. She has worked with students suffering from a number of ailments and injuries including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Fibromyalgia, High Blood Pressure, herniated or bulging discs, Asthma, Arthritis, Depression, Cancer, Anxiety, stress and other dis-eases of the mind and body. She also specializes in pre-natal yoga.
The practice of Y Respira (and breathe) is at the heart of everything Claudia does, and captures the spirit of the sacred yoga studio she has built. Claudia and her fellow yogis understand that breath is the key to yoga and the key to life. She supports clients as they practice incorporating that philosophy on the mat and off the mat.
“A yogi measures the span of life by the number of breaths, not by the number of years” – Swami Sivananda
As part of her wholistic approach to health, Claudia offers a number of other complementary services including skincare, Reiki, Thai Yoga Stretching, Aromatherapy, Bach Flower Essences, & Herbology.
Claudia loves learning and continues to add new skills and experience to her healing repertoire. Most recently, she completed a certification with EquineOM, prompting her to offer unique horse yoga retreats, and earned her certification as an Equine Sports Massage Therapist thru EquissageNC. She also completed Thomas Berry’s Program of The InnerLife of the Child, which focuses on co-existing with Mother Earth.
She continues to create new opportunities for others as she leads a number of training programs. As an accredited Yoga Alliance School, she has trained more than 80 students with her 200 hour certified teacher-training program. She is an approved vendor of the Department of Veterans Affairs, where veterans with a disability rating of 20% or higher may be eligible for Vocational Rehabilitation (Chapter 31) Training through the Veteran Administration.
And, she now offers a Mindful Yoga and Natural Horsemanship Integration Certification for yoga teachers, equine therapists, barn owners/managers, and equestrians.

Claudia is professional, knowledgeable, and experienced in all that she practices and teaches. She connects to people easily and understands what her students/clients needs and helps them achieve their goals. I had the privilege of having a Rieki session with Claudia and felt like a weight was lifted off of me right when I finished the session. I would highly recommend working with Raleigh NC Yoga, you will be happy you did!
