    I liked it because it made me feel good physically and mentally. I am disabled but the class worked with me at my level and "stretched" me further each time. I didn't know I was capable of such poses and movement. very positive experience!

    Carla is an amazing instructor. She instantly puts you at ease with her soothing manner. She is encouraging and very helpful for a beginner like me, yet her passion and broad knowledge is evident. I highly recommend taking a class with her!

  • John Wills

    I am an older male and her lessons were very manageable for a beginner. I never felt out of place and Carla’s claming voice and instruction allowed me to be in the moment and catch on quickly

  • Alisa

    Carla is an amazing instructor. She takes it to the next level by adjusting and explaining each position very well. I always feel sooo great after a session with her!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Typically I will speak with the student(s) and ask them their goals and why they want to include yoga in their life to see if I am the right fit for them.  We then get to movement and breathwork! 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

200 hr. Yoga Alliance certified Yoga Instructor.  I also have 4+ years of experience teaching at various studios and with private students.  I also volunteer my teaching services from time to time at NAMI in Wheaton.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Yes, I charge $18 for 1 hr. studio classes

Private Lessons - $65/lesson - 3/$150 class bundle

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with multiple ranges of students from teaching chair yoga (seniors) all the way to teaching heat building vinyasa (advanced) classes in addition to restorative or yin type styles. I also teach meditation and breath-work depending on need/desire of student(s).

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be sure the teacher resonates with you on some level so you feel comfortable enough speaking up.  No one knows your own body like you do, the teacher is there to create a safe space for you to explore and stay curious.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

How/why does Yoga draw you in? Is it purely for the physical aspects?  Does the psycho-spiritual play a part for you when practicing?  Maybe it’s your first time and you don’t want to go into a studio without some knowledge. Either way, I would ask you why you are drawn to yoga.
