Pure Heart Yogi


I was fortunate to have been put in contact with Carolena when I was having back problems and I badly needed to exercise and stretch. I had practiced yoga for a few years when classes I was familiar with were available but I had to help out with grandchildren and I lost touch with the discipline. I thought I could get myself back into the habit but found I was unsuccessful and frustrated trying that on my own. Carolena has helped me this past year and guided me into so much more strength and discipline. She figured out what I needed by listening and observing and by easing me through manageable poses moving forward with more challenging movements. This has helped restore my body, strength and well being in all ways. She is a great and loving and devoted teacher. With her help I look forward this year to more discipline and gratefulness in my practice.

We had a private yoga class with Carolena for our corporate event in Napa. She arrived on time, provided mats for our group and was a great instructor! She was able to adapt to the needs of our group. She was thorough with checking in with each of us about injuries/pain and made sure we all felt comfortable. We loved our experience and would love to work with Carolena again in the future!

There were so many special experiences we had during this once in a lifetime trip in Sonoma and we kept saying how our private yoga session with Carolena was one of our top ones

I hired Carolena for an individual yoga session. I am very new to yoga and have been intimidated by studio classes so I decided to try a private session. She spent time talking to me via phone before we first met to understand my needs and level of experience. Our first class together was great! Carolena makes you feel encouraged and confident. I am continuing private one on one classes with her and would highly recommend working with Carolena!

My husband and I celebrated our 50th birthday with friends and hired Carolena to come and instruct yoga for us. Carolena showed up on time, was very professional and brought a beautiful energy to our group. We all came from varying levels of yoga and Carolena did a wonderful job instructing to a mixed group. We wouldn’t hesitate to work with Carolena again!
