CARLA PINTO

My introduction to Yoga happened at a young age in collaboration with my extensive dance training. As a Yoga instructor, dance artist, and educator, I share my acquired body intelligence with students by bringing mindfulness into practice.

Following a BFA in Dance, my 200 hr RYT certification was completed at the Dallas Yoga Center in 2014. My lifelong passion for dance has translated into an anatomically sound teaching style in Yoga, creating conscientiousness and ease in movement. I look at the student as a whole being, body, mind, and spirit. My goal is to continuously be an advocate for self-care, personal health, and wellness. Here to hold space and share the love and joy of Yoga with you. In yoga, the focus will be on the whole self, body, mind, and spirit. Knowing each individual is unique and holding space to connect to self and rebalance the body and energy centers.

In Yoga, our attention will be on using bodily postures (Asana), breathing techniques (Pranayama), and meditation (Dhyana) with the goal of bringing about sound alignment, a balanced healthy body, and a clear mind. Bringing mindfulness into practice while finding ease and flow within our bodies.

Mindfulness is the practice of being deliberately aware of each moment of one’s experience. It is tuning into the stream of consciousness and staying in the present moment with this awareness. Together we will tune our awareness and increase our conscious connection through the art and science of Yoga.
