    carter siegel colorCarter Siegel, M.Ed., RYT500, was certified to teach in 2005 through Yoga Alliance and in 2012 received her 500 hour teaching certificate in Classical Yoga from the YogaLife Institute. She has been teaching in private and group settings to all levels of ability.

Carter has studied and practiced many styles of yoga over the years (both hard and soft) and has studied with American gurus such as David Swensen, Sean Corn, Shiva Rae, Daniel Orlansky, and Beryl Bender Birch. While her yoga foundation is based in the physical and athletic style of Ashtanga, she makes it accessible to even the newest yogi through a careful and gentle approach to identifying the needs of her students. From the newest to the advanced practitioner, Carter teaches in a clear, logical and appropriate pace and level that supports the students abilities and limitations (if any). Carter's vinyasa flow classes focus on linking breath to movement. The student will build strength, increase flexibility, and work towards realizing a greater sense of peace of mind and clarity of thought.

Dear Yoga Community,

julie rost portraitAs Director of the YogaLife Institute of New Hampshire, I welcome you to our website. We believe it responds to a need that Yoga students and teachers have for greater connection and community. It is also an opportunity to share Yoga's rich lineage of philosophy, science, spirit and practice which, though timeless in its presentation, often needs some interpretation for the Western student of a different era and cultural understanding.
