EAST TO WEST

Dear Yogis, I am both happy and sad to announce September will be my last month in Vermont. I’ve been accepted to grad school in California for my Master’s in Clinical Psychology. As I begin training in psychotherapy, I’m particularly excited by a current trend in mental health care: incorporating integrative techniques such as yoga and meditation. Time Magazine has a great article here,“Psychotherapy Goes from Couch to Yoga Mat.”

I’ll be teaching in Southern Vermont until late September. Please check our online class schedule here. 

Thank you all so much for your support. It has been an honor to teach, practice and share my love of yoga with you! Stay tuned for my West Coast adventures. 

In gratitude,  xox Cara

a trip to Yogaglo

I’m just getting back from a great trip to California. One of my best friends (and an amazing yoga teacher, check her out www.pilarcarillo.com) and I took Jason Crandell’s class at YogaGlo in Santa Monica. YogaGlo is an online yoga studio. Only $18 a month, some of the best teachers across the U.S. travel to Santa Monica, teach classes for free, then post the classes online for yogis across the world. Super cool concept. I started practicing with YogaGlo when I lived in England, when the rain and grey kept me away from class.

The studio itself is clean and modern. Sunshine streams in from the skylight. It’s a great space for yoga practice.

From the start, Jason has been a favorite of mine. He lives in San Francisco, travels extensively, and trained under Rodney Yee. His classes are alignment-based but it ain’t no Iyengar 🙂 . He’s a skilled and thoughtful teacher who doesn’t make it to the East Coast too often, so I was psyched to practice with him while in CA.  I have learned so much from him on YogaGlo and would love to do a 500 hour training Crandell-style. Here are a few photos from my trip. If you’re in LA, definitely check out YogaGlo!
