Carol Price

Carol Price started her working life as a Physical Education Teacher in Scotland before moving to England, many years ago. She is now back in South Ayrshire and the yoga journey continues.

Carol is a Diploma Course Tutor (DCT) for BWY, delivering BWYQ Level 4 Diploma/Certificate Yoga Teacher Training Courses in Norfolk and Scotland via Manchester and Spain.   Carol has assisted Belinda Emberson, on the BWY Foundation Course Tutor Training programme, for the last three years. She is currently BWY Regional Officer for Scotland.

She will bring all of this knowledge, expertise and experience to this Foundation Course – so be prepared to learn something new about yoga and expand your yogic horizons.

Carol has practised and studied with various teachers and schools of Yoga. From this eclectic mix, came a style of teaching that combines her teaching background and her love for the more traditional Hatha Yoga practices, which she feels encompasses the very best that Yoga has to offer. Carol believes that anyone can practice Yoga, you just have to find the teacher and style that resonates with you.

I remind my students that everyone can do Yoga and Yoga is for everyone, but it can take a little while to adapt your body, mind, breath (and spirit) to what is happening in a yoga class.  As yoga is a practice for life, you can take all the time you need to adjust and let Yoga into your life.”  C. Price
