Carolyn began her study of both Buddhism and yoga in 1987 while working for the Peace Corp in Thailand. In 1998 she was initiated into the Kalachakra Tantra by H.H. the XIV Dalai Lama in India and began studying with Khen Rinpoche Lobsang Tharchin in New York. She presently studies with Dzongsar Jamyang Khyentse and has also studied with Gyumed Khensur Rinpoche and Professor Robert Thurman.

From the beginning, she was fascinated by how the Iyengar method of teaching yoga led her a calm state of clarity and stability, both mentally and physically. Her goal as a teacher is to give that experience to others. She regularly studies in India with the Iyengar family.
