Teacher: Carrington Razook of blue lotus
Carrington took the first steps along her yogic path in Denver, Colorado, in 1994. Her journey began with Bikram yoga and after a few years, she found herself drawn to the strength and beauty of Vinyasa. Through the creative process of marrying movement to breath, the transformation from a physical practice to a spiritual practice was born. Carrington realized yoga was much bigger than just a physical endeavor of asana. But rather it was a way to connect to the very core of self, which is the place of spirit … the place of connection, the place of the divine. Ultimately, the soul of her practice is about bringing peace and healing to the world. Carrington uses her own experience with her practice to help deepen and encourage the practice of her students. Her commitment to her students encourages a strong internal body, mind, and spirit awareness, as well as core strength and grace. She believes listening to the body’s own wisdom is an integral part of yoga and by listening to ourselves, we realize everything we’ve ever wanted to know is already there. Her journey of yoga has had many teachers along the way. A few teachers who have influenced Carrington’s personal and teaching practices are Seane Corn, Sharon Gannon, Ainslie Macleod, Terry Brown, Suzanne Newton, and of course the greatest teacher of all Life. Carrington gratefully attained RYT status in 2004 and RYT500 in 2010. She currently teaches at Blue Lotus Yoga in Raleigh, NC, serves in leadership with YogaVotes and Off the Mat Into the World and is also a lululemon ambassador.
