Carolyn and yoga fell in love following a lifelong swimming career. The physical practice of yoga came naturally and helped her regain physical strength, reinforcing the connection between body and mind, and bringing an element of balance back into her life. In 2013 she completed her 200-hour RYT to deepen her practice and pursue her love of helping others. Trained in Vinyasa, meditation, pranayama and assisting technique, she places an emphasis on being a student before a teacher; learning and cultivating a personal practice in order to translate knowledge authentically to her students. She feels a strong connection to the ocean and appreciates the beautiful unannounced moments of meditative clarity that are brought about when surrounded by nature. Carolyn is committed to helping others cultivate a joyful and authentic life, no matter their unique path, finding peace within themselves. Carolyn is also a proud representative of AcroYoga as a JAMbassador, helping cultivate an inspired community based on love, sensitivity, and play in the Wilmington, NC area.

Carolyn instructs the following:
  • Surya 108
  • To open this celebration of movement, we will flow through a mindful Puja prayer ritual to rid ourselves of stale thought patterns and shed weight that no longer serves us. We will use the sacred simplicity of the number to flow through 108 Surya Namaskaras, blazing through barriers and setting intention that will be woven into moving meditation. Rejoicing in our vulnerability and humility teaches us to live with joy, gratitude and grace. Together we will use our bodies as instruments of higher awareness, so that we can receive wisdom and knowledge and enter the New Year with clarity and mindfulness.
