This is what Carla’s students have to say about her teaching:
I have practiced yoga for over 20 years to help me manage chronic pain resulting from serious injury, and as such I have sought out excellent teachers. Carla is caring and knowledgeable, supporting me and others in the class to make adaptations to suit our bodies and minds. Louise


Balanced and blended yoga class with flow elements with qualified and fully insured yoga teacher Carla. Carla also holds a current DBS and has worked with injuries and disabilities so this is a class for everyone - young and old alike!.

Your practice will be adjusted for a Mixed Ability class with more advanced practice for experienced students and individual needs and adjustment to correct your alignment, and avoid strain and injury.

Carla has trained in both the Iyengar and Ashtanga systems of yoga and has been practising yoga for 30 years. Yoga nidra and breath/mindfulness in savasana (relaxation pose), complete your practice.
Yoga improves sleep quality and relieves stress, as well as mobilising joints and increasing flexibility and strength.

This is what Carla’s students have to say about her teaching:

Carla is a wonderful yoga teacher. She takes the time to really get to know you so that even in a class setting, you feel completely looked after and are given guidance tailored to your own specific needs. Her classes have a lovely and supportive atmosphere and you leave feeling refreshed and positive. Highly recommended. Lesley

I have done lots of classes in the past but Carla's class is the only one I have stuck too. A big plus is her cheerful character and sense of humour - the hour and half is over before you know it. Thank you Carla - Namaste. Reshma

This is your opportunity to work on refining your yoga practice, work deeper into the postures with fewer attendees you will benefit from more adjustments and correction in the work that you do. This is your chance to get more involved in your yoga.


Workshops will emphasise alignment, correction in the asana practice and correct breathing techniques that facilitate awareness and depth in the poses.

Mindfulness through the practice of yoga nidra will be practiced at the end of each session for a minimum of 20 minutes. Please contact me with any queries.
