In Carla's own words:
"My yoga journey began on June 24, 2012 during a workshop in Austin, Texas. I had never attended a true yoga class before and had no clue what Mark was speaking about. I was lost but soon found myself on the mat....and all it took was simply inhaling, exhaling, and moving. Mark knew I was brand new to yoga and that I was nervous as I was surrounded by highly experienced yoga instructors....but, after guiding me through very basic breathing and moving exercises, patted me on the back and simply smiled at me and said "See, Carla....you are practicing yoga! It really is just that simple. You are here. You are breathing. You are moving. Isn't it wonderful?" Something in me changed that day and I truly FOUND myself on the mat. I carried his words home with me and still carry them with me today. I read his books and accepted his 40 day yoga challenge (The Promise) and practiced yoga on my own with the help of his android phone application for a minimum of 7 minutes a day for 40 days.
I am beyond grateful to all of my teachers as they have played a profound role in my transformation - mentally, physically, and spiritually - and words cannot express how much I adore them. However, Mark Whitwell is, and will always be, my "true" teacher and I love him dearly. Namaste."
