Carol Allen, 200 RYT
This question was posed in a yoga class at a gym in Portsmouth in 1999: “Can you imagine practicing together when we’re 80”. Thirteen years later Carol Allen can answer with a resounding “yes”! The physical, mental, ethical and spiritual practices of yoga have carved pathways of peace, strength and well being that she could not have imagined possible. Carol has practiced at Yoga East since its earliest days in a gym in Portsmouth.
Through Yoga East, Carol has had the opportunity to study with Nancy Gilgoff, Donna Farhi, Sharath, Nicki Doane and Eddie Modestini and Bhavani Maki. She also completed a 100 hour Yin Teacher Training with Paul and Suzie Grilley and 150 hours of training in Para Yoga with Rod Stryker. Carol met her Guru, Baba Harihar Ramji (Babaji), when he came to speak at Yoga East and by his grace was accepted as an initiate in the Aghor Yoga tradition. Babaji guides her spiritual practices. Carol is humbled, honored and grateful to have the chance to share the gifts of yoga and to practice together until we are (at least) 80.
