“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. One of Caroline’s students described her classes and her teaching the following way, "You possess a fluidity with your emotions and the classes/sequences that you teach. You have a fire about you that creates this compelling energy of motivation and inspiration.You inspire others to enter into areas of their practice that might be difficult.” 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.



Caroline Pope Peavy instructs the following:
  • YinYasa
  • This class is a beautiful blend of yang (active yoga) with yin (passive yoga). Sequencing will include low to the earth yoga to build strength, warmth and flow with fundamental yoga postures while relieving stress and tension by connecting breath with mindful movements. Active yoga might include work to build to a peak pose or a creative sequence.  YinYas  creates flexibility, mindfulness and softness to release the connective tissues, create space and integrity in the joints and remove blockages to internal energy flow.

    Suitable for all levels.


  • Hatha Vinyasa
  • 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.

  • Heated Slow Flow Vinyasa (PPY)
  • Slow Flow is a steady vinyasa performed at a slow, strong pace in a heated room. The goal is not to achieve a specific amount of postures within a set time, instead we work on being present with our breath through slow movements and postures that are grounding, build muscular endurance and create stability and focus. You will move through a different series of postures each time you attend, with a long relaxation period at the end of class. The room is heated to approximately 90 degrees with some humidity. This class is accessible to all levels.

  • Vinyasa Level I - II
  • This class is designed to introduce new and continuing students to the foundations of alignment, breathwork, primary poses, sequences and variations. Level 1/2 is intended for the student who has practiced yoga before, and is good for the student who wants to build on their yoga practice.  Expect strong and steady flow with occasional peak pose work.
