Patrick teaches vigorous vinyasa classes that emphasize building strength, creating flexibility, encouraging play, and learning to float. His classes are a fluid mix of longer holds and crafty flows that forge a deep mind-body connection. Patrick’s caring and intelligent teaching style makes yoga relatable for all levels of modern-day students. Longtime yogis familiar with his teachers, Annie Carpenter, and Brock and Krista Cahill will appreciate the blend of those teachings with Patrick’s own in-depth knowledge of alignment and his flair for creative sequencing built from a dedicated personal practice.
Carling began her love affair with yoga in an instant. The beautiful blend of strength and flexibility drew her in and kept her coming back to her mat day after day, year after year. Carling is trained by Annie Carpenter in a harmonious blend of Iyengar & Ashtanga yoga. Having studied anatomy, nutrition, labor and birth, Carling’s classes are informed by our body’s architecture and development. She aims to provide students with both progression and a life long yoga practice. As a balance to her regular classes, Carling also specializes in prenatal yoga. Using pranayama, asana, visualization, and self care, she feels lucky to be able to support women through their pregnancy and into motherhood. Through her training as a Doula, she works to help support and enable women to find their power and serves as an advocate for both women and birth. In addition to yoga, Carling uses her passion for food, health, and wellness to cultivate a healthier, happier, more informed dinner table through private and corporate nutritional counseling. When Carling isn’t practicing and teaching, you can find her hanging with her partner in crime Patrick, their 2 magical cats Opie & Zelda, singing along at local shows, and shopping for retro sneakers.
Opie and Zelda are a curious, adorable and unexpected pair of rescued kittens. Opie sports a classy tuxedo while Zelda struts her stuff with her signature extra short Munchkin legs. Opies favorite pose is Happy Baby, Zeldas favorite is Tadasana.
