About the teachers: 

Clara Roberts-Oss:
Movement has always been sacred to me. I have danced my whole life, whether it’s been grooving to a good song, taking dance classes or flowing through a vinyasa, my body can’t get enough. Through movement, I feel as though I’m communing with the Divine. I took my first vinyasa class in 2000 at Jivamukti Yoga Center. I had a feeling of arriving home. I received my 200 hour Vinyasa Certification with Lauren Hanna at Sonic Yoga NYC in 2003 and have completed my 300 hour Prana Flow Certification with Shiva. I thank all my teachers for sharing their passion of this practice with me: David Life for opening my heart, Stacey Brass for her minute cues that have changed me life, Dana Flynn for throwing out all the rules and inspiring me to do the same, Constantine Darling for showing me another way, and Paul Ortega for reminding me we are ALL the cosmic dancer. I invite you to be playful in your practice, remembering that lightness is found in spirit!

Carolyn Anne Budgell: 
Yoga surprised Carolyn as a ski bum in Whistler ‘99 at the unaware age of 19. It initially provided agility for her snowboarding, skateboarding and trail running. Now, as a teacher in Vancouver, she continually learns how to connect with others and feel at home in one’s skin. Since completing her first 200 hour YTT in 2008, she has an extensive CV: as a contributing writer for My Yoga Online, filming videos with lululemon and Mala Collective, as an educator for international Teacher Trainings with Lila Vinyasa School of Yoga and Semperviva Yoga, managing yoga studios and guiding students through the mind blowing practice of just being while in silent meditation intensives. Carolyn’s vinyasa classes are chock-full of unique alignment cues, smart sequencing, some careful touch and some touchy jokes to which she pays gratitude to Schuyler Grant, Ana Forrest and Clara Roberts-Oss. Her passion for silent meditation in forests is thanks to Adyashanti and Michelle St Pierre.
