Confessions of a Yoga Teacher
Introducing our very own podcast, Carlienne’s Corner: our first series “Confessions of a Yoga Teacher” is dedicated to yoga. On my heart lately, is the worry that yoga has become too akin to physical exercise. Additionally, that yoga has become similar to travel: our yoga practice is only a temporary escape. A vacation from real life. We go to a class and “do yoga” and feel good off the endorphins and maybe even start to heal physically. However, when we return to the rest of our day the stress begins all over again. How then, can we intentionally practice yoga in other aspects of our life?
The power to change comes from the belief in the possibility of change. The key is mental. Switch your perspective: instead of “I can’t”, ask “why not?”. We believe the simple decision to try makes things happen (that’s how we traveled for a year!). So we’re going to try this first podcast series out and see what’s possible. Subscribe to the podcast at adventuresofcarlienne.podbean.com or drop by here every other Wednesday for deep and delicious talks on Carlienne’s Corner!
Start at the very beginning with our Caturanga Workshop by building the core and arm strength to confidently flow in and out of caturanga.

About Yoga with Carlienne
My yoga journey began in 2010 during a time of frustration from unmet expectations and struggles with self worth. I self prescribed daily workouts to combat this depression and create a sense of control in my life just as a yoga studio opened in my neighborhood. I joined out of convenient curiosity and 5 years later I took part in their teacher training, where I started to find my voice and envision a dream for my practice: Our Lam Yoga.
I decided my first responsibility in sharing my journey was to create a safe space to develop deep roots. Just as the first cakra Muladhara (LAM) focuses on the sacral root and letting go of fear, we focus on strengthening our basic foundation so that we can build the courage and trust – in the ground, in ourselves and each other – to grow. Each day is a new day and each time we come to our mats, it is different. Lam is also an homage to my family, my roots, and how I have been blessed with the freedom to fly.
