Online and In-Person Classes with Caryn
Caryn is a Yoga Alliance RYT-200 certified teacher and also has her ACE personally training certification and CPR Certification. She is a graduate of Florida State University. She worked as an IT Consultant and a manager in the corporate world, but always had a passion for fitness and healthy living.
In 2000, Caryn discovered yoga after experiencing many years of lower back issues. She immediately felt the benefits of yoga both physically and emotionally. She became more flexible and her core got much stronger so most of her back issues went away and she discovered a peace that was missing in her life. She has always practiced alignment based Hatha Yoga. In 2013, Caryn graduated from Heartwood Yoga and Retreat Center with yoga teaching certification.
Caryn believes that yoga is for everyone from the beginner to the experienced and the young to older adults. She takes the Hatha alignment approach in all her classes from gentle to vinyasa to ensure that her students are safely practicing yoga while stretching and strengthening their mind, body and soul! She also wants to encourage you to take what you learn on your mat into your everyday life!
Caryn also loves healthy eating! She’s not a perfect eater, but definitely feels and looks better when eating fruits, vegetables, lean meats and fish. She and her children work in the garden together, which consists of Earth Boxes and Tower Gardens and they cook together. She also takes and sells Juice Plus, which is whole food nutrition in a capsule or chewable, to ensure that she gets her daily dose of fruits and veggies.
Caryn is truly dedicated to helping people become strong and healthy. She is here to encourage you in your walk to become a healthy person inside and out, so she cannot wait to see you in one of her classes.
Caryn teaches the following weekday classes via zoom and in-person on Saturdays:
Fitness Training on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 8:30 – 9:15 am – A 45 minute full body workout with or without weights.
All Levels Vinyasa Flow on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, 9:30 – 10:45 am – Vinyasa Yoga is a flowing, dynamic sequence of poses which synchronizes the breath with a continuous flow of postures for a Moving Mediation. The fluid, almost dance-like movements increase flexibility, strength and stamina, as it calms the mind and improves overall health. We will focus on correct alignment and posture while using props as needed and we will work to a pinnacle pose in each class.
Gentle Yoga & Foam Rolling on Mondays and Fridays, 11:00 – 12:00 pm – This class is designed for beginners through intermediate students. In Gentle Yoga, you’ll be guided through the basic poses, but allowing for more challenging poses based on your practice level. This is a great class for students looking for a more gentle experience, those who are new to yoga or those who need a change of pace, yet still have the option to take it to the next level. Also the perfect class for students with injuries or limitations.
Vinyasa Flow on Saturdays, 9:00 – 10:15 am – Same description as above, but… it is live in-person in the upstairs breezeway by the Four Pillars Wellness Spa in San Marco Plaza in LWR. Take the elevator upstairs. Enjoy vinyasa with Caryn and connecting with the yoga tribe in the shade with a breeze and a view of the lake and fountain. We will be 6 feet apart and will use hand sanitizers. If you prefer to join from home, the class will also be offered via zoom.
