Claudia teaches Non-Violent Communication, Yoga and Inclusive Leadership

In these times of turbulence, inclusion is a door we can open to support each other and live better lives.

In fact, I think Inclusive Leadership skills are all like doors that will enhance all my dreams and projects and the way I want to live on Earth.

I am slowing down to open the doors to myself; to be more receptive and be able to see the wisdom that life is giving us if we give it time.

The outcomes are long term relationships, sustainability, trust, communication and love.
