My husband has had a bad back for several years and after his osteopath recommended that he took up yoga, we both started lessons. I soon realised that yoga is the traditional background for many of my beliefs and with regular practice it can be the catalyst to embrace life’s challenges, seeing them as opportunities to learn and grow.
As our lessons progressed I increasing enjoyed both the physical and mental benefits that yoga gave me and decided I wanted to learn more. I therefore studied Vinyasa yoga with Debbie Avani at Yoga Ananda in Reigate and qualified as an RYT200 teacher with Yoga Alliance UK. Since graduating from my teacher training I have continued to develop my knowledge and understanding by completing a number of other courses. These include
- Yin yoga – Sarah Powers and Sarah Lo
- Embodied Relational Yoga Therapy – one to one yoga and therapeutic yoga – Kate Ellis
- Teenyoga – Charlotta Martinus
- Working with Injuries – Deborah Berryman
- Sun Salutation, Demystifying the Chakras, Effective Sequencing, Standing on Your Feet – Debbie Avani
- Coaching to Excellence – Third Space Coaching
- First Aid
I teach private lessons and small classes in Winchester, Romsey and the surrounding areas. I endeavour to create a caring and supportive environment, in which I can share my knowledge in a friendly and enjoyable way. My aim is to help you to learn practices that will improve your overall health and wellbeing.
As of December 2016 I am now an Associate Level 2 teacher. For details of my accreditation please click on the images below.
Carolyn creates a reassuring aura of compassion, playfulness and intensity when she teaches yoga. She shares herself with you to create an inspiring atmosphere where anyone can relax, learn and enjoy the experience of yoga!!
Carolyn is articulate, thoughtful and extremely creative. She is a wonderful teacher and caring person and I would highly recommend her classes.
Carolyn is a sensitive, intuitive and inspiring teacher. Her gently manner helps you feel at ease immediately and she seems to have a real talent for knowing just what you need and when you need it. I can’t recommend yoga with Carolyn highly enough.
