Carole began practicing yoga in her mid-50s after spending decades developing tight hamstrings and hip flexors while sitting at a desk while working in healthcare administration. She initially added yoga to her exercise regime to gain flexibility and calm her type A personality… but now the practice means so much more to her. To her, yoga is about making space: space in our joints, space between our vertebrae, space in our hearts, and space in our minds.
Carole is passionate about making yoga accessible to every body–regardless of age, size, shape, or ability. She says, “Can’t balance on one leg? No problem, that’s why we have walls to support us. Can’t get down and back up from the floor? Fine, let’s do some chair yoga. Too stiff to do yoga? That’s like saying you’re too dirty to take a shower!”
Carole encourages students to start where they are and enjoy making progress with consistent practice. In her classes, you can expect mindful meditation, breath work, asana practice and savasana. The goal is to get a little more comfortable with the uncomfortable, and to feel great when finished.
When not teaching or practicing yoga, you can find Carole gardening, riding her bike, strength training, paddle-boarding, cooking and traveling.
