Yoga with Carrie Rodd

Saturday 8th June - Saturday 15th June 2024

Yoga with Carrie

 

We are delighted to welcome back Carrie who has been teaching at Chimeneas for over a decade.  Her wonderful style of teaching indeed first enticed us to practise yoga on a regular basis and we are so pleased that she will be here once again in June to enjoy some yoga, good food as well as plenty of options for guided walks and local talks and activities 

 

About Carrie 

About Carrie

Carrie has been practising Yoga for about 15 years. She studied Ashtanga with Danny Paradise, Anusara with Bridget Woods Kramer, Iyengar with Anna Ashby, meditation with Emil Wendel.   Carrie’s formal Yoga Teacher training was with Triyoga London where she studied for 18months with Jeff Phenix and Susannah Hoffman and achieved a distinction in the 200 hour training accredited by The British Wheel of Yoga and Yoga Alliance.  This year Carrie has studied with Jason Crandell on his Advanced Teacher Training programme. Carrie blends different styles of Hatha Yoga to develop a practise which is invigorating and healing, soothing and strengthening.

A week of vinyasa yoga to deepen your practice, or if you are a beginner, to introduce you to the practice of asana that can develop strength, flexibility and focus.

We will begin each day with an awakening of the muscular body, slowly opening and warming, leading to a graceful vinyasa. The afternoon sessions will reflect a slower more meditative pace,   delving a little deeper into certain aspects  of Yoga and tailoring a practice for each individual.  At the end of the week you will have a yoga session designed specifically for you to take home and through your yoga practice build the best possible version of yourself.
