"I have been doing yoga with Carmen for a while now. She is a kind, patient, knowledgeable and a grounding Yoga teacher.
When I started my classes with Carmen I really didn’t know much about Yoga and I was very anxious about my impending labour and delivery, in a matter of a few classes Carmen managed to help me understand what my body is capable of and is making me feel very centered and relaxed.
Her classes always leave me feeling calm, grounded, supported and energized. She is very attentive and listens to my worries which I have really appreciated - especially when she takes the time out of her busy schedule to give practical advice.
She is an outstanding person and Yoga teacher and I genuinely feel very lucky to share my Yoga practice and pregnancy journey with her.
To anyone looking to start Yoga, whether new or advanced in Yoga, I would thoroughly recommend her classes. Thank you for the amazing classes Carmen, I really do appreciate them."

"I'm taking prenatal private classes with Carmen. Every class is a great stimulation for me! I Love to start my day practicing with the breathing exercises, stretching my body and getting so much positive charge and absolute feeling of Love and connection with my baby. She is really attentive to every detail, looking all the time for individual approaches in accordance with my state and feelings, taking care of me all the time, and not only during her classes! The exercises we were doing helped my baby to turn into the right position for birth, and I believe all this preparation will help me a lot during delivery. Thanks to Carmen I’m feeling more confident and relaxed at the same time. So happy we chose the right yoga teacher"
