Yoga is my passion. I'm like a yoga evangelist that can't wait to show you how "yoga can fix that." I love to practice and teach, and I hope it shows in each class. Although I do teach different styles, at my heart, I am a true, old school, get you super tired and sweaty Power Yoga fan. I love a class that leaves me completely exhausted, free of the crazy squirrel thoughts, and super sore the next day. I can't wait to see you on the mat soon!

“Instructing all levels and all ages of students in yoga has become a passion for me. I enjoy working with my high school students, as well as my elderly students. I love seeing the benefits of yoga both physically and mentally to all levels of students. Watching my students progress and grow; seeing their peacefulness and inner beauty at the end of each class makes my job complete. I hope that I have the opportunity to see you glow and shine soon.

"For me, yoga is a surprise that sneaked into my life as I was entering my middle age years. I love the vigor that it has brought to both my mind and body, at a time in life when vigor often is a diminishing factor. Teaching yoga to others has become a passion - it is almost magical to help people relax in a yin class, to share what could be a lifelong practice to children, and to lead others in their yoga practice. From turning upside down in aerial yoga, completely relaxing in a yin class, or being upside down in an aerial sling I look forward to the rigor and joy of each yoga class. Any day and any stage of life is perfect for pursuing a yoga practice! "

"I like to challenge and encourage all my students. Yoga should feel good! My philosophy is if ya take the time to put on the spandex and show up, then let's make the extra effort to gain all the amazing benefits your yoga practice has to offer. At the end of your savasana, I want your body to say, "thank you, thank you, thank you!" If you want to flow, stretch, build strength, gain balance, and smile - come play and have fun with me on the mat!"

"Breath is the bridge which connects life to consciousness, which unites your body to your thoughts." Thich Nhat Hanh "Focusing on the act of breathing clears the mind of all daily distractions and clears our energy enabling us to better connect with the spirit within." Author unknown "Throughout my life, I have often and very kindly been told that I am an "encourager." My prayer is that I continue to carry that practice into every yin class I am blessed to share with others."

I believe people practice yoga for many different reasons but I love yoga for the opportunity to heal through breath, connect with the body and form a deeper connection to source energy. I like to incorporate breath work and meditation into the yoga practice. My highest intention is to hold a safe and calming space for all different types of bodies at any level.

"I'm a gymnastics coach, kids circus/aerial acrobatics teacher and a yoga teacher. For me yoga is my meditation. I finds peace through the practice of yoga and honor my practice for it's ability to unite my mind, body and spirit. I find that yoga is a space where I can exhale to release that which I no longer needs to carry. " Join Caroline for unique movement classes where she likes to share her love for the practice and incorporate other unique forms of movement.
