About Carol

calmclearmind

Yoga and meditation have transformed my perspective, experience and enjoyment of life.

I began practising 27 years ago and have been contributing to teacher training programmes since 2008.

I offer one-to-one yoga in my local area of north Hertfordshire, having greatly benefited from this approach myself. Yoga was originally taught in this way.

It is a privilege for me to share the benefits and beauty of these practices, and to see such a discovery unfold in others. Each person I work with is unique and yoga can work for everyone.

I initially completed a 500-hour Teaching Diploma with the British Wheel of Yoga in London and have taken many further trainings since then, including certification in Yoga Nidra and Restorative Yoga. Time on retreat, some of it silent, has been life-changing for me, both in India and in Europe.

The majority of my experience as a practitioner is in the so-called Krishnamacharya lineage, and I am deeply grateful to teachers from the Iyengar, ashtanga and viniyoga traditions.

My training in sports massage (with sports therapists and an osteopath) also informs my yoga practice and teaching.

My background is varied and I love working with people from all walks of life.

I trained in ballet for 15 years before undertaking my first degree. Originally a linguist, I completed a graduate programme at the European Commission in Brussels. I have worked at senior management level in the corporate world and in fundraising for London's wonderful National Portrait Gallery.

For a taste of my approach please see the work with me pages, testimonials and my blog.
