About The Teacher

Hi, I am Claire, and I believe in the power of feminine connection to heal each other. I am a dreamer, and a risk-taker.

Ten years ago, I was living in Paris and working as a successful corporate executive in a male-dominated industry. After my MBA at INSEAD, I then launched my own business in the fashion industry, disrupting a commodity market with a simple business idea whose success stretched from Paris to Milan, Dubai and Los Angeles.

When I came on a business trip to Venice Beach in 2013, I knew I was meant to live here. And I started to dream I would have a house on the canals, working on new exciting projects every day, and host beautiful Champagne parties.

Today, I am writing this short intro overlooking the Venice Canals, and a hummingbird is tasting one of my flowers on my patio, while the ducks are bathing in the water.

What happened between 2013 and today to make my life the dream I was always meant to live is me deciding to apply a set of practices, beliefs, and self-love that I am now sharing with other women. I came to the realization that dreams choose us, and that it is our duty to fulfill our life purpose and our potential.

I have to talk about Champagne and why I love it so much. The simple sound of popping a bottle of Champagne makes me happy. The small bubbles dancing in my glass, the promise of a celebration and the sparkle in people’s eyes makes Champagne the drink of happiness.

Since 2016, I have been hosting private events at my home on the Canals called “The Healing Power of Champagne”. When I moved to LA in 2015, I wanted to create a safe place where women could talk about anything freely, exchange and support each other, without ever feeling judged. During these monthly events, I gather women to talk about feminine power, body image, relationships, love…etc…and we heal each other, one glass of Champagne at a time.

After two years of private events, it is time for me to take “The Healing Power of Champagne” to the next level and launch my program of retreats.

The “Healing Power of Champagne” retreats are taking you on a journey to a new culture and to yourself, waking up your feminine aliveness. By combining fun and nurturing activities that will heal the goddess in you, with personal growth exercises and breakthroughs, this experience will be like no other. I will make it as personal as when you are at my home. I will be facilitating the whole program myself together with my wellness partners (reiki masters, yoga teachers…etc.) and will guide you through this sacred path to realizing your deepest dreams. Whatever you are experiencing right now in your life, take the first step in proclaiming your truth and achieving your heart’s desire.

My inspiration sparks from my innate charge to connect with a collective innate goodness. I aspire to live in a way that continuously blossoms and embraces my wise and compassionate human nature. Freundl
