"I have practiced various styles of yoga on and off for years in many different studios. I find myself extremely fortunate to be a student of Carl's. He combines his mindful meditation with a beautiful vinyasa flow. His classes are always challenging and you leave feeling grateful, connected and at peace. Carl has an ease and energy about him that is rare. I tell everyone I know to experience one his classes is a blessing."
"We've been fortunate to know, work with and learn from Carl for the past 5 years as a yoga teacher, mentor and trusted friend. The practices of yoga and meditation have had such a profound impact on Carl's own life, and he is both adept at teaching them and dedicated to sharing them with his students. Carl was instrumental in building up the vinyasa program at the studio and he has a devoted following of practitioners, us included! Carl is attentive and intuitive as his creative classes seamlessly weave interesting music, stories and humor; his classes touch well beyond the physical practice of yoga. In all things, Carl demonstrates a depth of commitment both to his students and to these practices. We are incredibly grateful for Carl's dedication, commitment and presence at our yoga studio, and we look forward to many more years together."
"I met Carl Vreeland back in 2010. I was interviewing Yoga Instructors to work for me at Apogee in White Plains. I was immediately drawn to Carl and his easy going vibe. He is the kind of person and instructor who draws people in due to his compassion and open manner. As an employee, I never had to worry whether Carl would make the long journey from the city to teach, he was always there for his students. Once I moved away from Westchester and Apogee closed, Carl and I kept in touch with each other via Facebook. This is where I first heard him sing and play the guitar. I was blown away. I asked him to video himself more on Facebook as his artistry was soulful and calming and got me through some of the most difficult days during the 2020 pandemic. Carl is a joy to know and I consider myself lucky to have been able to remain his friend."
"I have been practicing yoga asana for eleven years, most of that time practicing five to six days a week. I have been through many hundreds of hours of yoga teacher trainings, including three trips to India, and taught yoga in Arizona prisons for 2.5 years. Carl is a gifted teacher, possessing great attention to alignment, recognition of the personal ability and needs of each practitioner, a sense of humor, and a strong personal yoga practice. Good teachers like Carl push their students to new heights all the while being careful to prevent injury and bad yoga habits. It is no wonder many are eager to attend Carl's classes."
"I’ve started my day several times a week for a number of years at Carl’s class, and I wouldn’t miss it for anything. His calm and focused demeanor creates an environment where awareness and engagement combine to build an increasingly strong yoga practice. Carl’s classes have let us progress in the basics while offering an opportunity to attempt new and more challenging poses. Carl’s adjustments to a pose are always helpful, and his skill can be seen in the deepened and more assured practice of our entire class. In addition, an unexpected plus to Carl’s great flow class has been his introducing the class with a brief meditation."
"Looking to take a yoga class from a highly qualified, professional and caring teacher? Carl’s classes are the perfect mix of form, breathing, challenge and encouragement. After three years I find myself stronger, more flexible, proficient and peaceful. You can’t get any better than that! Do yourself a favor and take one of his classes, you will feel at once renewed, strong and confident."
