Carla’s goal for her students: “The more they know themselves, the happier they will be.”


Introduction to Yoga

Sitting at a vegetarian restaurant in Lima Peru, Carla noticed students with mats on their way to the studio across the street. In that moment, her curiosity was piqued and she took her first yoga class. She left that class feeling happy and peaceful. So began her introduction yoga and  years of dedicated practice.
