Carol Sykes RYT-200
Carol started practicing yoga several years ago for chronic lower back pain. For years her practice was purely physical, and while she enjoyed and continued her practice she felt something missing; the spiritual connection. It wasn't until she suffered a trauma in her life that the missing element would surface. "I finally got it. While on my mat I found I could accept the suffering and find peace through the connection of body and breath. Yoga, coupled with my deep faith in God, became a prayerful moving meditation, an inward journey that brought stilling calm to my spirit, a sacred space." The path to certification was a calling. "While in savasana the thought came to me I should finally get my teaching certification, something I'd wanted to do for some time. That very day the owner of YogaMindset, Kellie Yokeley announced that she would host a 200 hour certification in her High Point studio!" Carol completed the RYT-200 training May 28, 2016 through Life Power Yoga and she and her husband Joe opened Sacred Space Yoga Studio June 1st. Her passion is for students to discover a body, breath, spirit connection in yoga that will take them beyond the mat into their daily lives. "I want students to understand that yoga transcends our suffering and we can cultivate peace within ourselves in any difficulty."
“Yoga allows you to find an inner peace that is not ruffled and riled by the endless stresses and struggles of life.” ― Iyengar
