About Carol Stall

I am one of those people who are born to teach. I realized at a young age that I wanted to pass on to others the knowledge and wisdom that brings peace and happiness.

My goal since the 1970’s, when I first found Yoga, has been to assist in the raising of consciousness on Earth. My masterful and gifted yoga teachers gave method and intention to my own teaching and nurtured my ability to teach Yoga with the kind of deep, inward focus that is not available in what might be described as “monkey see, monkey do” yoga classes.

I first began studying Yoga in 1973 and started teaching yoga classes in 1979 at the request of several friends and colleagues who observed positive and apparently noticeable changes in me. People began to describe me as someone who "has it all together" and asked me where my "inner peace" was coming from. So I started on this road, this journey, this mission, unsought and unplanned in my imagined life, though it was. As Carolyn Myss says, "Want to make God laugh? Tell Him your plans!"

Here's what I can say with confidence: I bring to my teaching the best of what I have learned from many teachers and a variety of yoga and meditation traditions. Especially significant in my work are teachings gathered from the work of internationally recognized yoga teachers, Donna Farhi, Rossella Baroncini, Irene Beer, and Vanda Scaravelli; from Body Mind Centering founder Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen; and from Shri Anandi Ma, a realized Master and the spiritual leader of Kundalini Maha Yoga, a lineage that originated thousands of years ago in India.

Since 1990, I have operated a holistic healing and yoga teaching practice in the Dallas area. In 2003, together with Vicki Johnson, I founded Namasté USA, a yoga teacher training program based on Vanda Scaravelli’s unique and inwardly powerful approach to yoga asana practice. Prior to this, I mentored yoga teacher training candidates in association with Namasté International’s 500-hour certification program.

I am now in the process of completing a book of poetry, written over a span of about 45 years and put on the back shelf for far too long. Concurrently, I am writing and editing a collection of quotations from spiritual wisdom that point to the mystical underpinnings of Yoga. This book will appeal to both yoga students and teachers who appreciate Yoga's deeper practices.
