“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.



Caroline Pope Peavy instructs the following:
  • $8 @ 8:00 - All Levels Vinyasa (ANNEX)
  • $8 at 8:00 am! All Levels Vinyasa taught by our PPY Teachers. Some classes might be taught by newer teachers because...we all have to start somewhere and at one point in our lives we were all a beginner at something!

  • 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.

  • 2pm Yoga
  • A one-hour straight up Yoga class for those with midday availability!

  • Yinyasa

  • Nourish and Retreat
  • A Somatic and Restorative Yoga experience. Somatic Yoga focuses less on the external alignment of a pose and more on the internal feeling-tone and experience of movement. Followed by deeply restorative postures, this practice strengthens your inner retreat space.

  • Hatha Strong
  • A strong Hatha class that may often lead to a peak posture (or two!) Explore your boundaries and play along the edges of what you think is possible. You are limitless. 
     
    Hatha Yoga classes are moderate intensity, non-heated classes that emphasizes longer holdings of postures, pranayama (breath work) and meditation. The basic Yoga poses are taught with focused attention on alignment. Props (blocks, blankets, wall, chair, straps) are utilized heavily to enhance, inform and support each posture. This class is excellent for all levels and especially those looking to delve deeper into the specifics of asana. Expect to learn the basic Yoga postures from each of the asana families: standing poses, balances, twists, backbends, inversions, seated floor postures, supine poses and of course, relaxation.
