Clara grew up in the Bay Area in the city of Santa Clara. She made her way to Southern California for college and graduated from UC Riverside with a bachelors in English. After graduating college Clara slowly made her way to the coast and now calls San Pedro home. Clara fell in love with Pure Barre in 2015 as it was a place where she got a killer workout and found a community. Pure Barre has been a constant source of joy as she moved around Southern California—for 50 minutes she was able to shut off the world and focus on herself. Clara became a Pure Barre teacher so she could give others that same escape. Outside of Pure Barre you’ll find Clara reading, hanging out with her pets, or spending time at the barn with her horse.
