Testimonials

“I have had the pleasure to know Carine through yoga both personally and professionally. I came to know Carine through my work as a teacher with at-risk youth in Richmond. The students that I work with come from very diverse backgrounds and many of them struggle with a variety of learning and emotional challenges. They range in age from 13-18. Many of the youth are often scared and unwilling to expose themselves or show weakness. Carine provided a very safe and welcoming environment for the students that allowed them to be vulnerable and open to the practice of Yoga. In the beginning, students were working through basic postures and by the end, we were attempting head stands and meditation. When we would do reflections on our experience they would all describe the sessions with Carine in a very positive and engaged manner.  Carine also opened up her yoga knowledge to me as a pre-natal instructor. She led a private class for my husband and I. Carine has a gentle and kind energy that she brings into all spaces that she visits. When she came into our home, she showed us how to use props around the house to aid us in the early stages of labour. Her vast knowledge of the body, postures, and breathing through partner work greatly enhanced my natural birth experience. It was through the tools that she explored with us that empowered me through my very intense labour experience.”  Lisa T

“Carine’s yin yoga class is the yoga that I have been trying to find for years. Carine is such a good teacher that I’ve finally been able to grasp the basics and make that elusive mind body connection that I’ve been stumbling through since the 70’s. At the end of
every class, during our last pose, Carine wafts lavender over us. One night, during this time, she took extra time over me, and I felt the last claws of my 3 days migraine lifted out of my skull and jaw. When I asked her about it, she explained she had cleared my energy. I felt that she waved my negative energy away. It was true magic.”  Judyann

“I love your class a lot!!!”  age 6 boy

“Carine has beautiful energy!  My daughter Grace loves coming to Carine’s classes…if we have to miss a class for whatever reason, Grace needs to know why we’re not going to yoga today.”  L. Gates

  1. Carine customized a 75 minute yoga practice that was perfectly suited for me, taking
    into account minor sports injuries and alignment issues that seem to go with aging.
    I really appreciate Carine’s holistic approach to yoga.

  2. Every week I look forward to my gentle hatha class taught by Carine! The atmosphere she creates for her students is so welcoming for all~from beginners to the experienced. She adapts all the poses so everyone can reach their personal comfort zone. We all look forward to listening to her welcome as she often starts with a personal story which connects to yoga or a quote that we can all keep with us to inspire. Her soft, calming voice sets the tone for the class. I recommend everyone to try one of Carine’s classes~you will LOVE it! Louise Mazzone

  3. I have been in Carine’s yin yoga class nearly every week for the past year. In every class I learn something more about myself through Carine’s gentle guidance.
    She is a wonderful teacher and I’m so glad to have found her.

  4. We enjoyed wonderful mother/daughter class–thank you! My mom is bravely battling anxiety and described how during our session she “saw panic, but was able to not feel it”. What a gift! Thank you again for guiding us through such a meaningful experience.

  5. Hello Carine,
    I just wanted to thank you again for thursday’s class. Your magic touch on my neck and shoulders felt like it realigned my entire spine. You are the great mother of healing.
