Carolyn Hedin

Carolyn Hedin, E-R.Y.T. 500, C-IAYT, Founder and Director of Bluewater Yoga Studio, is certified by the American Viniyoga Institute, the Krishnamacarya Healing & Yoga Foundation of India, and is registered with Yoga Alliance at the E-500 hour level. Carolyn has been teaching solely in the tradition of T. Krishnamacarya and TKV Desikachar.

Carolyn began her Yoga training with International Yoga Studies in 1997 where she was introduced to Gary Kraftsow and Viniyoga. Over the next three years with Gary and Mirka Kraftsow she earned her first 500 hours of Teacher Training and became certified as a Yoga Teacher by the American Viniyoga Institute. Carolyn went on to study 11 years with Kausthub Desikachar first in the U.S. and Canada and then in Europe and India. Many of these sessions were also taught by Kausthub’s father TKV Desikachar, including the Yoga Therapy sessions in India during the final four years. Since 2013 Carolyn has been studying Vedic chanting with Radha Sundararajan, and continues to meet with her sanga of European teachers.

Carolyn especially enjoys teaching The Yoga Sutra-s of Patanjali and The Bhagavad Gita to share the perennial wisdom and guidance that they offer everyone who wants to understand the human potential in all of life’s experiences. Increasingly interested in the many benefits of using sound in practice, she is deepening her exposure to Vedic chanting and sharing this knowledge with her students.

Private sessions are available.
