This class focuses on the front body and aims to clear congestion, unlock new space, and generate more energy. Through a series of supported backbends, you will open up your shoulders, chest, abdomen, and hip flexors alongside the use of breath, props, and minimal effort.
An LA-based yoga teacher, Carling is known for her lighthearted attention to detail and commitment to the growth of her students. Connecting individuals to the practice through intelligent and informed sequencing, compassionate, intentional adjustments, and relevant alignment instruction.
Carling’s teaching is designed to give students the tools and techniques to access their own unique body’s needs, create new connections and continue to find the center of themselves each time they step on their mats. As a balance to her regular classes, Carling is trained as a Doula and also specializes in prenatal yoga. She has been featured in and contributed writing to publications such as Yoga International, Mantra Magazine, and Yoga Digest. When she's not on the mat, you can find her hanging with her partner in crime Patrick, dreaming of Tokyo, singing along at local shows, and shopping for retro sneakers.
