Namaste and welcome to Carol Macartney Yoga…….
It is my deepest wish to impart everything I have learned over the years on my yoga path and indeed my journey through this lifetime as a Teacher a Mother and a Student. There have been so many wonderful teachers bestowing their gifts of wisdom and truth along the way and after twenty three years of practice I now realise that we are all conduits and transmitters of the truth in our own unique way.
I thank you the student for allowing me to continue to share the teachings through the weekly classes, workshops and retreats. Without you, none of this would be possible.
The style of yoga I teach is a synergy between myself and all of the above, but my journey began with my training in the Sivananda style of yoga and thereafter meandered through the paths of Scaravelli, Ashtanga, Yin and Vinyasa. Most importantly culminating in the meeting of my teacher over the last fifteen years, Clive Sheridan who embodies and transmits the teaching of Advaita Vedanta. I trained in 2014 in Shakti Dance with the beautiful Sara Olivier (Avtar Kaur), the yoga of Dance.
If you are looking to attend any of my offerings be it a retreat, a workshop or a weekly class, you can expect a fusion of Asana, Pranayama, Meditation, Dance, Mantra, Mudras, readings and quotes, but more than anything a sense of open heartedness, joy and love.
Everyone is welcome, whether you are beginning on your path or have years of experience because we all inspire each other.
Thank you so much for reading and I hope to see you soon….Sat Nam
2017 promises to be a wonderful year with some familiar venues and some fabulous new ones. Many students have experienced a transformation during some of the retreats and the feedback has been incredibly inspiring.
Some embarking on their first weekend retreat, whilst others diving ever deeper into a longer one, which allows us to leave behind the distractions of daily life and immerse in some precious time to look inwards and let go of numbing habits and negative thinking, opening to the joy which is our birthright.
A retreat offers the opportunity to improve the physical practice as well as awakening to the deeper aspects of yoga, all of this whilst enjoying the experience of practicing outside in nature in the some of the worlds most beautiful places, eating wholesome delicious food and being in the company of wonderful open hearted people.
Investing in ourselves is the most important gift that we can bring to our lives and to those around us.
I am deeply grateful to everyone and look forward to sharing this amazing practice.
Please have a look at the retreats on offer and get in contact with me if you have any questions or would like to book (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Feedback on Carol
"I have had the most wonderful retreat, I thank you from my heart for creating a safe space for me, your endless, selfless love that you show to everyone is an inspiration to me. As always, I have loved your teachings and smiled at your words. I love you for being you."

"I’ve been on many of Carol’s yoga retreats – and that’s for a good reason – Carol is a wonderful teacher with a great capacity to spread joy. She’s inspiring, intuitive, creative, nurturing, grounded and has a great sense of fun. No two lessons with Carol are the same, and each lesson is special. On Carol’s retreats I’ve found that there are always people with a wide range of yoga experience – from many years (or even decades!) to none at all, and Carol somehow manages to teach in such a way that everyone leaves each class feeling that it was exactly right for them on that particular day, and leaves the retreat as a stronger, happier people."

She is a talented maestro leading her class into an incredible spiritual and physical journey that pushes the boundaries of everyone’s comfort zone. Her charm and warmth creates an environment where anyone regardless of their level will feel inspired to discover…”

I’m pleased to be able to offer a nice selection of retreats in 2016, from the comforts of the Isle of Wight, to the beauty of the Italian countryside to the tranquil coast of Turkey. All are aimed at enhancing your yoga practice and releasing the tensions to bring back your self awareness.
