Carolyn Little, MA
In my classes, whether it’s yoga, mindfulness, or life coaching, I hold a safe, open space…… guiding students through an integration of vinyasa, yin, restorative, pranayama, and meditation. I encourage students to meet themselves and their practice, with compassion, vulnerability, and a sense of humor.
As a 500hr RYT, (including certifications in yin yoga and prenatal yoga), along with a graduate degree in Social Justice in Intercultural Relations, I bring a multidisciplinary approach to wellness, empowerment, and leadership shaped by my experiences working and traveling nationally and internationally.
I am a Wellness & Transformational Life Coach, Reiki Master, and Shamanic Practitioner.
As a catalyst in bridging ancient traditions with modern technology across various spaces from yoga studios to western medical and corporate settings, I impart the philosophies of holistic healing, earth based traditions, and the subtle skills of self inquiry, emotional intelligence, and compassionate communication to support interpersonal relationships.
My unique journey has led me to study with indigenous Elders from Columbia, Peru, Costa Rica, Mexico, and North American (including the tribes of Cherokee, Lakota, Anishinaabe, and Cree).
In tandem to this, I have developed and taught comprehensive mindfulness and emotional intelligence programs at some of the world’s leading biopharmaceutical and life sciences corporations.
