Carla Wainwright Yoga
I started practicing yoga in 1996, the original motivation — to touch my toes! I had no idea the journey I was beginning to undertake would be so profound and transformational. Seventeen years later, I can touch my toes, and along the way I discovered that my talent and my passion has become helping others nourish their unique journey toward self discovery.
Yoga is the union of the body, mind, emotions and intellect. Yoga is an ancient and timeless art, science, and philosophy that emphasizes awareness, integrity, and compassion. The practice of yoga helps anyone to gain good health, mental peace, emotional equanimity and intellectual clarity.
I love Flow practices for the movement and freedom, Hatha classes for the precision and experience of deepening and YIN for the stillness and expansion. My love of music, movement, dance, breath, food, culture and holistic lifestyle influence and are expressed through my offerings.
Much of my work explores opening and connecting to the mayakoshas (sheaths) or layers of being as a means to merge with the Essential Self. Each sheath is an integral part of who we are: the physical, energetic/emotional, mental, intuitive and bliss body. As we search for equilibrium both within and in between these layers, we begin to truly understand ourselves and the outside world around us.
Furthermore, while most of my retreats and offerings are open to all, I am particularly passionate about helping women explore the divine feminine and embrace their indwelling power, the Shakti nature within. This work entails going deep, uncovering blocks, becoming comfortable with feminine power and sexuality and becoming embodied, balanced and strong on all levels. As I continue to explore and embrace Shakti in my personal practice, I experience my evolution forward into myself. An increasingly empowering and liberating experience, I feel compelled to help others (primarily women) experience this for themselves.
