He is a qualified Yoga Therapist recognised by the BCYT, British Council for Yoga Therapy, and CNHC: Complimentary and Natural Health Council. He is an accredited teacher with the Centre for yoga Studies, the Association of Yoga Studies, and the British Wheel of Yoga.
He has a broad knowledge that was built on being taught to meditate at the age of five.
Carl studied widely from martial arts, gymnastics and sports to reading Philosophy (PPE) at Oriel College Oxford, and then went on to train and work professionally as a contemporary dancer. Later, he began to work with dance on screen and dabbled in acting. He had begun directing and producing film and video when yoga took over his work life to became his main focus in 2001. The varied and rich training he received has been invaluable to understanding yoga as a philosophy and applying it as psychology.
He lives with his wife and children in Muswell Hill, North London, in an energy saving “Passiv Hus” designed around Vastu principles. Carl and his Wife Ruth built the house to live with a greener footprint. There in Muswell Hill, Carl teaches yoga and practices as a Yoga Therapist from a small hempcrete studio in the garden. Built from recycled materials and backing onto Coldfall Woods, it is a lovely place to study and practice yoga in an oasis of nature in London.
