“Yoga is the practice of tolerating the consequences of being yourself.”

Just like she was meant to birth her two children, Caroline was born to practice and teach yoga. Her journey on the mat began in 2000 with Bikram Yoga when looking to get into shape for her wedding in 2001. Caroline’s sister suggested a Vinyasa class and she was hooked. She no longer felt as stressed when living her life of wife, mother, and professional. Caroline’s emotions began to balance themselves out with every practice. She now believes that self study on and off the mat is the root to clarity of body, mind, and spirit. Caroline was certified to teach Vinyasa in 2010 by Eyes Of The World Studio with Tom Gillette and Shannah Green. She recently completed an advanced 500 hour training with Theresa Murphy in traditional Hatha Yoga. This training was a cross-pollination of styles, penetrating study of asana, anatomy, meditation, therapeutics, hands on assisting, sequencing, wisdom teachings, subtle anatomy and so much more. Her classes include many different styles of yoga and wisdom teachings. Caroline weaves every class differently so that the student has a better sense of their body and feels the transformative experience that is yoga.

In Hatha Vinyasa, there is emphasis on proper alignment to ensure that the most benefit is derived from the pose and that risk of injury is reduced. Props, including blankets, blocks and straps, are incorporated to achieve proper alignment. Breathing is emphasized to help students experience a mindful practice. Breathing (Pranayama) and meditation techniques may also be taught as a class focus. Hatha Vinyasa is an excellent style for students who appreciate longer holds in individual postures so that they may begin to experience the poses more deeply from the inside. Students who prefer a slower and more meditative approach to practice (while still reaping the benefits of a physical practice) will benefit greatly from Hatha Vinyasa. The intention for this class is to be able to express yourself in the practice of yoga and to embrace that it is your practice and that you are invited to show up exactly as you are.

The room is heated between 85-90 degrees with some humidity. This class is accessible to all levels.
