Thriver Spotlight: Claire Rose
November 5, 2019
Claire began practicing yoga in 2010 to improve her flexibility. What she found as she continued to practice was so much more.
She quickly fell in love with the way yoga helped to quiet the mind while strengthening the body, and she quickly recognized that her favorite part about teaching is helping students to feel empowered by their practice, igniting passion in all areas of their lives.
What’s your name?
What is your superpower at Thrive?

What’s so special about Thrive?
You can feel the warmth and love the second you walk in the door. The entire staff truly cares about everyone who walks in the door. It’s very apparent that your well being is of the utmost importance to all there.
Where did you grow up?
Any Activities/Hobbies outside of Thrive?
Going on hikes with the family, just relaxing with friends, and being a chauffeur to my two boys.
If you could recommend one thing to someone new coming to thrive it would be?
What is your definition of Functional Medicine?
Truly trying to find the root of what’s going on. Instead of just quickly prescribing medication or slapping a bandaid on a health issue, the doctors actually try to get to the root of the problem. They look at the body as a whole, and know there are so many ways; including through nutrition, exercise, and supplements, to heal and prevent.
The best part about an appointment?
Dr. Larson spent so much time really listening to me. She truly cares and wanted what was best for me.
My advice would be to take advantage of EVERYTHING Thrive has to offer!!
