Carmen Champion

Yoga Instructor
I have been a yoga practitioner since 1995 with a foundation in the Kundalini style of yoga and received my 200-RYT certification through Lex Gillan and the Yoga Institute in January of 2013. At this juncture, I am fascinated with all types, forms and disciplines that exist within the vast arena of modern day, western yoga. Generally I like to offer an eclectic class, pulling from various strains to explore breath, postures and meditation.Yoga builds community, is physically challenging, designed to create focus, to activate a present mind and to still the inner voice. These qualities, along with the stamina and flexibility that a daily practice can generate, have enabled me to live a more balanced and mindful life.Yoga has personally transformed me and it is a privilege to have the opportunity to share it with my students. Teaching yoga is, by far, one of the absolute highlights of my day. When I am not teaching, I am working on completing graduate work in art history at the University of Houston. I perfect day for me would involve cooking my son his favorite meal while watching sports on television and snuggling with my two cats. It is the simplest things in life that are often the most rewarding!
