I simply LOVE teaching yoga
Yoga to me is about slowing down, paying attention and being in the world, rather than moving through the world executing transactions, wondering where the time has gone, and feeling lonely. Even if I am alone, when I am practicing yoga, I am friends with myself.
Style of Teaching
Carol adapts her teaching to her students. She encourages learning through thoughtful touch, precise modeling, and through layered and ecclectic language so that students may experience their yoga on a deeper kinesthetic level. She uses props, focuses on physical alignment, and takes time to guide people into their experience of breath. She carefully selects music and language during class to inspire and relax the energetic body.
