I have studied yoga with Paola Feher since 1998. I began teaching in 2002, receiving Yoga Alliance registration in 2005 and the designation "Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher" (E-RYT-200) in 2010. I have enhanced that registration by continuing education, including 60 hours of additional training at Duke University on yoga specifically for seniors with physical limitations such as arthritis, joint replacements and osteoporosis. In addition, my studies have included yoga philosophy, chanting, pranayama (intentional breathing patterns), anatomy, and asana sequencing, primarily with Paola but also with T.K.V. Desikachar, Brian Dorfman, Elise Browning-Miller, Judith Lasater, and Barbara Benagh. I am also a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists.
I have a special interest in yoga to benefit people with scoliosis and osteoporosis, and patterns of yoga breathing to benefit people with asthma and high blood pressure.
I had never done yoga before my first class with Paola when I was 49. As I look at myself 12 years later, I can honestly say that I am in better health now than I have ever been in my life. I know there are health conditions that cannot be cured, but I am convinced that a combination of yoga asana with intentional breathing can reduce the symptoms and suffering of most conditions.
Carol and Massage
In early 2008, I took intensive training in massage in San Diego. Though I continue studies with Paola on specific techniques to address pain and problems, my primary focus is relaxing touch that is just deep enough to relieve most aches and pains. As of July 1, 2010, the state of Montana began regulating massage therapy. I became a licensed massage therapist at that time.
