Carolyn

YOGA INSTRUCTOR

Carolyn has been teaching yoga for over ten years. She began practicing yoga to be more fit and flexible, but fount that not only did this happen but it also helped decrease back pain from sitting at a computer all day, and improved how well she slept. Yoga has been an important part of her life ever since.

Carolyn teaches Yin yoga. Yin is about surrendering. If you are feeling it you are doing it. Yin is a style of yoga where you are targeting the joints and connective tissues in the body. By relaxing the muscles this allows a deeper release. Most Yin poses work from the waist down, mainly on the floor in a seated or lying postion and are held for up to 5 mins. Although challenging at times it is suitable for most people. Like all yoga it helps to reduce stress, open energy channels in the body and increase flexibility and mobility.

Carolyn teaches Hatha Yoga – a classical form of yoga, which focuses on holding postures and maintaining breathing patterns that allow students to calm their minds.

Qualifications include:

  • Advanced Diploma Hatha Yoga
  • Diploma Yin Yoga
