Who's On The Mat
From The Heart
After tearing through numerous other yoga mats a year I decided that if I was going to take my practice more seriously, that I had to take my mat more seriously. I upgraded to a Black Mat PRO and have never looked back. I can always come to practice on it and feel like I am being nurtured and protected.
Why Manduka?: I love that I never have to think about wear and tear with my Manduka mat. It is dependable and steady, like yoga.
What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice...... with steady grace.
Yoga Style: Hatha
Practice with me here: Newton Hip Mamas
Carolyn’s passion for sharing yoga with others has grown from her own transformation within the practice, especially during her own pregnancies and journey into motherhood. She began her yoga journey in 1995, while working as a labor and delivery nurse, when she discovered its benefits in helping mothers cope during labor. Her yoga practice has since evolved into a core part of her daily routine and philosophy on life and parenting. Carolyn began teaching in 2004 and values the opportunity that teaching yoga provides to support new mothers and build community connections.
Carolyn has had the opportunity to study with Nancy Gilgoff, Shiva Rea, Paul Dallaghan, Judith Lasater and Sri. K. Pattabhi Jois. She has also completed Birthlight diplomas in prenatal and baby yoga with Francoise Freedman. Carolyn currently lives in Newton teaching mothers and babies from her home studio.
