Maha Pura Yoga's Director, Carolyn Weatherson, has studied a wide variety of different styles and approaches to the art of yoga, even including Thai Massage Training. Because of this, 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 20 years of continuous study and experience, the Yoga Alliance has graced Carolyn with the highest certification; E-RYT 500 and YACEP.
Carolyn began her studies in the East to West Yoga Teacher Training Program and went on to study personally with Rodney and Colleen Yee in '08, '09, '11 and '12, also twice with the amazing Dharma Mittra as well as the inspirational Seane Corn, knowledgeable Dr. Ray Long, soulful Natasha Rizopoulos, spiritual Nichela Joy Devi. Danny Paradise, Prahlada and Lilias Folan shared their wisdom and generous spirit with Carolyn as well. Carolyn also trained hard with the incredible Ashtanga Master David Swenson and studied meditation with Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in 2010.
For Pilates, Carolyn was blessed to spend time training with Mari Winsor (of Winsor Pilates!)
It was an incredible honour for Carolyn to study with the great mindfulness meditation master, Thich Nhat Hanh, for 4 days in 2013.
These intensive sessions with great masters were all transformative 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 incredibly 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.
