Maha Pura Yoga's Director, Carolyn Weatherson, has studied such a wide variety of different styles and approaches to the art of yoga, even some Thai Massage Training, that she has developed an eclectic style which does not adhere strictly to any one school of yoga. All Maha Pura Yoga teachers have been trained personally by Carolyn and reflect this wide perspective. The studio offers a vast range of classes, everything from prenatal yoga to aerial yoga. We strive to create a joyful, safe, non-competitive environment.
After over 15 years of continuous study and experience, the Yoga Alliance has graced Carolyn with the highest honour of E-RYT 500.
After graduating from the East to West Yoga Teacher Training Program, she went on to study personally with Rodney and Colleen Yee in '08, '09, '11 and '12,
Also twice with the amazing Dharma Mittra
Many workshops with the inspirational Seane Corn, knowledgeable Dr. Ray Long, soulful Natasha Rizopoulos, the Spiritual Nichela Joy Devi and deep Danny Paradise.
Prahlada and Lilias Folan shared their wisdom and generous spirit with Carolyn as well.
For Pilates, she was blessed to spend time training with Mari Winsor (Winsor Pilates!)
Trained hard with the incredible Ashtanga Master David Swenson
It was an incredible honour for Carolyn to study with the great mindfulness meditation master, Thich Nhat Hanh, for 4 days in 2013
Also, Studied meditation with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in 2010
These intensive sessions with great masters were all transformational and deepened Carolyn's love and appreciation for the art and science of yoga.
After extensive study with a wide variety of master teachers, Carolyn launched Maha Pura's Teacher Training Program as the director of Maha Pura Yoga and wrote 12 comprehensive manuals that have received an amazingly positive response which has left Carolyn completely humbled.
Maha Pura's first video: Strengthen and Lengthen sold out and will soon be available as a download along with a host of other videos now in the making.
Carolyn deeply enjoys teaching yoga to every level of student from beginner to advanced at the studio.
Her anatomy studies have gone well beyond the advanced anatomy certification requirements. Coming from a medical family, Carolyn understands the importance of continually striving to deepen her knowledge on this subject. The science behind the workings of our bodies, combined with traditional wisdom, defines Carolyn's approach to yoga.
