In 1997 when I was certified for Relax with Yoga in the Integral Yoga tradition, I had only a hint of how genuine joy would fuel my life. Since then, I've been privileged to lead tens of thousands of yoga classes. I am the conceiver, co-creator, and happy proliferator of the Meditation Sampler program, and I feel especially fortunate to offer meditation guidance for women with cancer through WomenCare of Santa Cruz. So inspired by the calming effects of yoga and meditation, in 2015 I earned certifications for various methods of hypnotherapy and, that same year, started a wellness business called Calm Together.

My yoga classes encourage:

Trust in body intuition — I offer clear verbal instruction, without physically "adjusting" your position, as you best know your needs, desires, limitations, and strengths on any given day.

Realness — Vibrant yoga practice calls us to be real with ourselves. My style is unstuffy, inclusive, occasionally irreverent, sincere, and warm. Please be who you are.

Community — We welcome, support and encourage each other as friendships and knowledge of yoga both deepen. It is proven that the benefits of a loving community are immeasurable.

Abundant peace ... for all — Our innate peacefulness is naturally expansive, unifying, and shapes the world around us. Indiscriminately and unreservedly, we share with all.

I began practicing yoga 15 years ago at Yoga is Youthfulness in Mountain View, California mostly to stretch and move my body as a strategy to offset some of the work stresses associated with a career in corporate finance. As I got started, I did become a bit more flexible, but I had no idea of the transformative yoga journey that was to come.


Now living in San Francisco, as the pandemic took hold, I reconnected  with Julianne Rice, one of my first yoga teachers at YiY. As I was seeking comfort during the early COVID days, her classes left me feeling amazing, physically and emotionally. It was just what was needed and I became a regular in her Zoom classes. Over time, I began to demonstrate postures for Julianne on Zoom which sparked my passion for teaching.

Creating space to attend to our individual and collective health and well-being is my devotion. Coming together in community through yoga – in breath, body, mind, and spirit – is a deep calling within me.


My personal yoga journey began in 1997 with physical asana practice while I was in graduate school and needing a way to find a way to increase both strength and relaxation in my body.  In 2010 a radical shift in my life uprooted me in a profound emotional and spiritual way, and my yoga practice deepened to include meditation and inward, energetic exploration.

Carolyn has been practicing yoga since 1992. She completed her 200 hour Yoga Teaching Training in 2019. Since then she’s been teaching yoga to all ages. Her motto is “yoga is for EVERY body" and she has adapted traditional yoga poses to the chair as well as to water.

The more room you give yourself to express your true thoughts and feelings, the more room there is for your wisdom to emerge.
