Style(s): Ashtanga, Dynamic, Restorative, Breathwork, Yoga therapy


Caroline is an Ashtanga yoga teacher, yoga therapist, and scientific journal editor. Caroline’s yoga teaching focuses on physical and mental wellbeing of the whole person and is rooted in her ongoing study of Indian traditions, including Ayurveda, Sanskrit and yoga philosophy. Drawing on her understanding of anatomy, physiology and neuroscience as well as yoga, Caroline adapts the Ashtanga practice to meet each individual student’s needs. She specializes in the avoidance and rehabilitation of injury, and aims to provide a collaborative and student-centred environment that makes yoga practice rewarding for students of all levels, backgrounds, ages, shapes and sizes. In Caroline’s classes, students can expect a playful approach that embraces exploration, an emphasis on developing stability and ease, and a functional approach to alignment. The Ashtanga practice, especially Mysore assisted self-practice, Caroline finds, can be a remarkably transformative tool for healing and self-discovery.
Caroline predominantly teaches Mysore self practice alongside traditionally counted led Ashtanga, breathwork and restorative yoga. Caroline also offers one-to-one yoga therapy and small-group yoga therapy courses.
Caroline has been practicing yoga for over 30 years and teaching since 2013. She qualified as a yoga therapist in 2021. Her main Ashtanga teacher is Hamish Hendry but Caroline remains profoundly grateful to other respected teachers with whom she has studied, including Sharath Jois, Greg Nardi, David Keil, John Scott, Eileen Gauthier and Debbie Blunden.

Assisted self practice Students with experience of Mysore self practice can start any time between 5:45 and 7:00pm (the opening chant is at 5:45pm).

Beginners assisted self-practice is at 7:00-8:00pm. If you are new to yoga, experienced in yoga but new to Mysore self-practice, or perhaps are re-starting self-practice after a break, start here! Complete beginners are welcome. You do not need to know anything about Mysore self practice or Ashtanga.
