Offering Iyengar Yoga In Encinitas since 2003

There are classes here for everyone from the beginner to the hard core advanced practitioner. If you have any ailments, alternative poses will be given. There is also a Therapeutics class for those needing to rehabilitate from an ailment. I can attest to the effectiveness of the Therapeutics class because I recently used it to cure a whiplash injury. It was amazing and a really great learning experience to feel the injury go in reverse. The other instructors at the studio are also well trained and I have learned a lot from them as well.

A Welcome Refreshing Change. In this day and age of commercialism and watered down goods and services it is a refreshing change to see a place teach Yoga in its pure unadulterated form as taught by one of the legendary Yoga masters of our time B.K.S. Iyengar. Carolyn has reached an advanced level which can only come about from decades of practice. This is evident in the way she teaches. She can sense where you are and where you need to go next. She is adept at picking up incorrect technique and making adjustments. You must have traveled the path before you can teach like this.

As I aspire to teach in the future, my experiences, lessons and guidance both on and off the mat have been invaluable. Classes are challenging and stimulating my own growth as a practitioner. It is truly a Center for learning about the Iyengar method and how to integrate yoga throughout your life.
