Carmela remembers leaving yoga class one day feeling different/calm, peaceful, and connected, with a huge smile on her face that she couldn't wipe off. As Carmela continued to deepen her practice she found herself transforming and realized that teaching yoga was her true calling in life. Training at Cleveland Yoga with Tami Schneider at the helm, Carmela received her 200RYT in 2008. She is honored to share the healing benefits of this ancient practice with others, and holding space for her students to find their own teacher within themselves. Her classes are dynamic and fun, with emphasis on intelligent sequencing and safety in alignment. Carmela teaches with awareness that no two bodies are the same, and that everyone has their own practice. She provides modifications and variations in her class so that each student can progress along their own unique journey. One of Carmela’s favorite things about yoga is that you can show up to your mat exactly as you are, and work towards your own personal freedom into your best version of yourself. Carmela feels blessed and inspired by her students, watching them grow and thrive has been most rewarding.
