Taught by the following Senior DYC Instructors:
Carla Rudiger Weaver - 300 Hr. Teacher Training Manager
Carla has 20 years of experience guiding people in yoga, therapeutic and creative movement. Her vast knowledge of the human body as an integrated organic whole is drawn from her study of yoga, meditation and Body Mind Centering® as well as her rich background as a professional modern dancer in NYC.
Carla is a graduate of the Embodied Developmental Movement & Yoga program from the School Of Body Mind Centering.
Her classes are heavily influenced by this somatic approach applying what she knows about developmental movement and experiential anatomy to the asana practice. Her teaching style and personal practice involve deep inquiry, observation, mindfulness and whole bodied expression within the form and practice of yoga.
Carla leads special workshops in somatic movement education and is an instructor in DYC’s Teacher Training programs.
Jessica O’Keefe E-RYT 500, has 20 years of experience guiding people in yoga and movement education. Her understanding of yoga and the human body has been influenced by Body Mind Centering, modern dance, dance therapy, and holistic health.
Jessica assists her students in knowing the joy and wonderment of integrating the mind and body. She encourages an authentic and life-nurturing practice, one that brings greater consciousness to each moment and each movement of the body.
Jessica has taught workshops throughout the United States. She also teaches the 300 Hour Somatic Yoga Teacher Training at the Dallas Yoga Center. Jessica has been training students to become teachers since 2005.
Since the birth of her son in 2008, Jessica has developed a specific line of research focused on the pelvic floor and women’s health.
Her teaching always remains committed to a sense of ease and acceptance.
Jessica is ever grateful for her students and many teachers.
Paula uses a mindfulness based practice to guide students into a place of receptivity that develops sensitivity, intuition and self-acceptance. Paula has a background in counseling, rehab and bodywork. She has been practicing yoga regularly since 1982 and meditates using the Pureland Buddhist tradition. Her yoga background is diverse and she continues to study with senior teachers believing a beginner's mind is a fresh mind.
Paula believes that yoga is a medicine for the body as well as the mind, and she incorporates her background as a yoga therapist and mindfulness based psychotherapist into her private practice.
