Carolyn has practiced yoga since 1988. She was introduced to both yoga and the Buddhist dharma while living in Thailand serving in the Peace Corps, 1987-89. On her way home from Thailand, Carolyn traveled to India to learn more about the land in which both Buddhism and yoga originated. She continues to return to India to study both spiritual paths, which she feels complement each other. Carolyn regularly goes to Pune to study with the Iyengar family.
Mary Dunn was Carolyn’s primary teacher in the States. Carolyn continues to study with Patricia Walden and Gabriella Giubilaro.
Carolyn strives to teach in a way that the students feel they are doing to learn and not doing to do. She feels the Iyengar method, thanks to the brilliance of BKS Iyengar, is an amazing method to learn yoga. “We spend time with our teachers to learn. But ultimately we must learn from our practice.”
