About Caroline

Caroline came from a background in Fine Art and dance. She began practising yoga in 1994 after the birth of her son, whilst training as a bodywork therapist. Her first years in ashtanga vinyasa took her to Mysore in India where she was a student of Sri K Pattabhi Jois. She now teaches an embodied and mindful approach to creative, flowing sequences that use spiral movements and pulsation. As a bodyworker of many years, her hands on approach is compassionate and sensitive. She is a qualified meditation teacher and somatic coach practitioner.

Daily Schedule

There will be two classes a day which will encompass mindful movement, breath work, restorative practice and relaxation.


The classes are suitable for all levels and experience.
