Bio: Claudia thanks her love of Standup Paddling to the Island of Kauai. As a certified Pilates instructor, she has combined her two passions; SUP and Pilates to form Bay Area Supilates. Not only has Claudia trained professional athletes, she is also quite the athlete herself. Competing in the 17 mile Napali Challenge, Folsom Olympic SUP Triathlon, the 10 mile SUP race at Tahoe Nalu and the 8.5 mile SUP race at Battle of the Bay, there’s no telling what her next feat may be.
