East Meets West Yoga Center

Carol Kramer

Yoga has been a part of Carol’s life for 10 years. Her enthusiasm and commitment for yoga continues to grow. She is excited to focus more on teaching now that she has retired from the corporate world.
Although the physical aspects initially brought Carol to yoga, her personal practice and a growing understanding and connection with the world of yoga has become her motivation to continue to learn and to teach. Carol offers a heartfelt approach to yoga, with a focus on strength, flexibility and mindfulness. Currently, her focus is on teaching Restorative and Yin yoga.

Carol completed 200 hour Vinyasa Flow training (August 2015) at JOURNEYoga in Arlington VA. She studied with Padma (Sarah Lynn E-RYT 500), and continues to dive deeper into the vast world of yoga to understand the history and philosophy. She enjoys studying the sutras, intricacies of each posture, and the benefits of yoga for everyone. Yoga has brought Carol joy and she looks forward to sharing that joy with others through careful instruction in a fun and supportive environment.

February 2017 Carol completed 75 hours of Kripalu Restorative Training with Sudha Carolyn Lundeen. Being supported in passive poses by an assortment of props enables the body to release tension allowing the nervous systems to be relaxed. Since we have busy lives, restorative yoga is a great way to release and help restore the body. Carol’s love of helping others makes her a natural for teaching restorative yoga.

In September 2017 Carol completed 65 hours of Yin training with Jo Phee. This training has opened a new area of yoga to focus on — another tool to help people reset their physical body, revive their internal and external systems, and find joy in their practice.
