About me

A yoga teacher with more than 15 years experience, Carmel is passionate about achieving the best outcome for her clients so they can move, transform and love their bodies.

Offering a calm and safe environment to just be, without judgement or ego, Carmel asks her students to find and face the challenges on the mat, so that they may live their lives effortlessly.

Her classes and therapy sessions are challenging and uplifting as she takes her students beyond the physical aspects of yoga and brings ... them into their own sacred space.

Carmel believes that gentle movement brings about a sense of stillness, which helps people to reconnect with themselves.

Her weekly trauma-informed class focuses on injuries and gives clients the freedom to slow down and focus on healing and strengthening their bodies.

In her classes for older people, Carmel says the gains are phenomenal, with improvements in strength and balance as well as the emotional and social support these classes give them.

Offering a different kind of yogic challenge, Carmel’s “Great Yoga Wall” extends people beyond what they think they can do physically and mentally, taking them out of their comfort zone and creating a new level of confidence.

Carmel’s private yoga therapy consultations help to integrate the mind, body and spirit through yoga postures (asana), breathing exercises (pranayama), meditation (dhyana) and guided imagery. This therapy is beneficial for physical, mental and emotional health and wellbeing.

Describing herself as an eternal student of yoga, Carmel loves to study to keep expanding her knowledge of all things yogic to share with her students. Her most recent course was one on neuroplasticity of the brain.

Carmel loves yoga teaching and providing the space where people feel free to be completely themselves.
