Caryl Leffel is a certified Yoga and Pilates instructor, and Personal Fitness Trainer. She is a registered teacher with Yoga Alliance. Certified by NESTA for Pilates and American Council on Exercise (ACE) as a Personal Fitness Trainer.
Throughout her life yoga and Pilates have provided a foundation for other activities. In the 1980s, she studied dance at Oklahoma City University and the University of Oklahoma. Her program of study included Alexander Technique and Laban/Bartieneff Movement Analysis and Fundamentals. In 1998, Caryl began practicing flying trapeze and aerial acrobatics, and has facilitated experiential learning workshops with Sam Keen and Peter Gold at the Omega Institute for Holistic Studies in Rhinebeck, NY.
In 2002 she began teaching yoga classes in Summit County Colorado. Two years later, Caryl moved to San Jose del Cabo and began teaching in the community in 2005. Her teaching style emphasizes practical physical alignment and principles of movement blended with Vinyasa krama - asana sequences that produce specific physical, mental and more subtle energetic effects.
In order to expand her own practice and to continue bringing vitality and authenticity into her classes, Caryl recently began studying with Yogarupa Rod Stryker of Parayoga. She hopes to complete the 500-hour Parayoga Master Training program in 2011. She received the following certifications with Parayoga in 2008, "Yoga Marma: Principles of Teaching and Hands-on Adjustment" and "Yoga Sutra: Light on Self-Mastery".
