Carol initially began her yoga exploration with the Iyengar style, learning the alignment basics. She practiced off and on for a few years and found her body needed more of a balance from the years of repetition, gradually developeing a dedicated yoga practice which led her to pursue her yoga teaching training. Her Vinyasa flow training truly opened her to the positive effects of yoga both on and off the mat. Yoga has helped Carol find balance within her life, connecting her to her mind, body, and soul. Focusing on the breath has taught her to remain in the present, a lesson she carries throughout her practice and her life. Carol is grateful to all her teachers and continues to grow her practice by studying with mentors and attending workshops. The ongoing process of learning is what provides the fresh insights that inspire her teaching. Carol brings a balance of fluidity and alignment along with accessible sequences that challenge and nourish the whole being. She is excited to share yoga as she believes there is a gift to be found each and every time one steps on the mat.

Chloe has felt a divine connection to the practice of yoga since her introduction as a young teen, and it has been a golden thread woven through her life since then. Practicing yoga has always felt like going home for her. Chloe deepened her practice in April 2015 through Sonic Yoga’s 200 hour YTT in New York City with the guidance of Lauren Hanna, Johanna Bell, and Tracy Mohr among others. She believes in a world where we treat ourselves with compassion, are at peace within our own body, mind, and spirit and are in tune with the earth’s natural rhythms so that we can spend our energy crating and serving the planet in whatever ways resonate with us. Her practice is her devotion to these intentions, and the palpable sense of peace she feels after guiding students through a flow keeps her returning to the mat as a forever student and teacher.
