Carole Westerman's mission is to bring yoga to everyone! She is an experienced yoga teacher, with certifications in the following disciplines of yoga: Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative, Prenatal, Children's, Kundalini, and Thai Yoga Massage. Carole is a certified Childbirth Educator, has experience attending births as a Doula, and has a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Psychology. Carole is also the Director of Teacher Training programs at Evolve to Harmony, her studio in Omaha. She is on the Teacher Training faculty of several yoga schools, as well as being on the faculty of 90 Monkeys, and travels to teach nationally and internationally. She has created her own curriculums for 500-Hour, 200-Hour, Yin, Restorative, and Prenatal programs that she has taught in numerous locales nationally. Carole is a mother to three daughters, and has worked many years in the fields of children and family services.

Carole teaches her own eclectic blend of yoga, combining elements from her diverse background and training. Always striving for harmony and balance in her teaching and personal practice, Carole integrates both Yin and Yang aspects into her classes. Carole's more receptive, therapeutic, and nourishing side is drawn from her trainings with Judith Hanson Lasater and Sarah Powers. While her more energetic and dynamic side is influenced by her studies with Shiva Rea and Gurmukh Kaur Khalsa.

Living yoga is what resonates with Carole; taking the skills, challenges, successes, and experiences we have on our mats, and applying them to our everyday lives. She believes that as we align our bodies in poses, we are actually aligning ourselves toward optimal health. As we flow, we are actually learning to ride the ups and downs of life with grace and ease. All of these elements, and more, come together in her classes to weave together a complex and beautiful tapestry that becomes the fabric of our living yoga. She invites you to come explore with her on the mat, and she truly believes yoga will change your life.

This short, yet effective sequence focuses on poses that stretch and open those areas while delivering an overall practice that doesn't require weight bearing on your hands. Move through a series of hip openers, as well as dolphin and gate pose. All postures are done low to the ground, without a single downward-facing dog! Props Suggested: A blanket.
Practice Focus: Prenatal

Towards the end of pregnancy, there can be pressure from loved ones about the arrival of your baby. While their intentions are good, this constant inquiry can create a sense of urgency around the birth. Rather than feeling rushed, use this time to cultivate patience and trust in your body. Practice a grounding sequence of postures like tree and flowing goddess squats, all with a built-in 'pause' for patience, to appreciate living in the moment.
Practice Focus: Prenatal
