Carol Ballard

Yoga in 1985 in the United States was not the ubiquitous practice it is today. While visiting family in New York City, a sister suggested she go to a yoga class, a somewhat rare opportunity at the time, and an “aha” moment was born. There was an immediate awareness of a way to connect with her body and access quiet in a busy and challenging life. A long love with yoga and its teachings had begun.

Through the next thirty-five years, her continuous practice brought contact with instructors of Phoenix Rising, Ashtanga, Anusaura, Hatha Flow, Yin and a sprinkling of other styles. There were multiple weeks and weekends of workshops to attend, a year long monthly immersion, silent meditation retreats, sutra studies, memorizations, an increasingly large, personal, yoga-related bookshelf and always a mat available for class, home or travel. The fun expanded to include a joyful chant practice and commitment to Sandpoint’s Meditation Sangha.

Caring about the local youth resulted in being in service to teenagers, and she donated time at Sandpoint’s Juvenile Detention Center. A deep gratitude to the many inspirational and generous teachers that have influenced her life has led to a desire for her to share the practice with others, resulting in her teaching adults in numerous settings and studios for more than 20 years in Sandpoint, Idaho.
