WHAT OTHER YOGIS SAY
Carla is an amazing yoga teacher, she has a lot of talent to be so and many good qualities. Her classes always makes me feel relieved and at peace, afterwards. What I love most is that she is very patient and fills her class with really good energy.
Carla is an amazing teacher, we hosted a weekend workshop with her in Slovenia and she made a great impression on the students with her joyful, yet very professional approach to teaching Dharma yoga. Her way of teaching is very structured and shows a lot of knowledge and experience she gained over the years of studying yoga. I must say that all students benefited from the workshop, from beginners to advanced yoga practitioners. Dharma yoga was new to Slovenian students and we received a very positive feedback from all participants. I am happy to say that Carla did an amazing job approaching this type of yoga to our community and we are looking forward to finding our Dharma together again in the future.
Carla is a super teacher! It was one of my first yoga wheel teachers. Her classes are amazing! Super power, challengers and always connected with the breathing. I can't be happier to have met her!
