Carta Robison

Carta began her yoga journey six years ago in the studios of 105F Yoga in Chicago while she was working for a large company and in need of some time for self-care. She was immediately in love: with the practice, her awakened spirituality, and depth of physical change she experienced. Practicing yoga gives her a sense of peace. Not only has she developed physical and mental strength, but her desire to learn about her body and experience yoga's benefits continue to increase exponentially. Her life philosophies and relationships reflect what she has learned and what the yoga continues to teach her. 

Through this yearning to receive the benefits and teachings of yoga, Carta wanted to get closer to her practice. She completed 250 hours of training and received her Yoga Alliance certification in 2016. She is eager and excited to share her love and knowledge of the Bikram series.

Currently a full-time law student at Indiana University Maurer School of Law, she pops in to KYKP to both teach and practice. She looks forward to practicing next to you or guiding you through the series in the future!

Looking back, different limbs of yoga have always run through my life. As a child I began my journey as a protector of animals as I cared for local strays and wildlife. In college, I became a vegetarian, traveled, and found myself interested in spiritual practices of other cultures. As an adult, I worked to bring peace and shelter to children and families in their communities. Along the way, I have experienced several styles of asana practice and I love how each of them offer a unique way to join mind, body and spirit. I believe there is yoga for everyone and I am filled with joy to be at Know Yoga Know Peace where I can share and encourage others on their journeys.

I have been a Crossfit trainer for the past four years, and taught Pilates classes before that. Though I have enjoyed both of these healthy endeavors, something seemed to be missing. A fellow crossfitter invited me to a "bring a friend" yoga class at KYKP. It was there, on a borrowed mat, that I found the missing element.

Combining mindfulness, breath, and movement, yoga transforms more than just the body. This has been true for me. Practicing yoga, especially at KYKP, has brought me peace and rejuvenation on a level previously unknown to me. This is why I attended a YA certified 200 hour teacher training through Bamboo Moves. I simply can't imagine life without sharing the gift of yoga with all who are interested.

I can't wait to meet you.

Yoga has had a huge impact in my life. After running for many years I had to stop because of injuries. For four years I couldn't find anything that compared to the feeling I got from running. I had given up on ever feeling that good ever again. I thought we all have to get old someday, now its my turn. Reluctantly I came to a hot Bikram class figuring what do I have to lose. To say the least I was totally blown away. I felt like I had ran five miles. And I also felt like I had got a massage. I knew I had found something amazing and something I would do for the rest of my life. I can do things that I used to do in Jr high again. No longer do I have leg or back pain. It has been an awesome journey and look forward to possibly helping others find something as rewarding as yoga has been for me. I look forward to continuing the journey.

My yoga journey began in 2010. After many years of negative self-talk, and low self esteem. I needed a path to self-love, and I found this love at Know Yoga Know Peace. Yoga brought me to a place where I felt confident in myself. In a room of silence I somehow found my voice. Since I was young, I always knew I wanted to help people emotionally heal. Through the love and guidance I received from my fellow students and instructors, along with the support of my Hive sisters; I became an instructor in 2014. I was more proud of my 200hr Teacher Training Certificate from Bamboo Moves, then of my Psychology Bachelor of Arts from IU. This is still the beginning of my journey. My intention as a student is to always love myself so that I can better love those around me. My intention as an instructor is to open your being to your inner energy and love that energy you share. Come Dance in the Moonlight with me.

My story begins 5 years ago in a Bikram Yoga studio and it was love at first sweat. I was instantly struck by how the practice seemed to quiet the mind. I loved the instant bond with other students and how the yoga demystified all our broken parts and the healing we were all seeking became empowering and no longer shameful. There are a lot of different teams represented in the yoga room. There's team busted knee, team slipped disc/ spinal injury/ sciatica sufferer, team dancer/ super bendy for whom yoga is a natural progression of their interests and then there are the completely-in-the-head teams: team addict/ team OCD/ team depressed, etc. The yoga room is amazing because you can be on a few different teams at once if you want (the teams aren't exclusive!) and winning means something entirely different in this space. The yoga is nothing short of a miracle.

I did my Hot Yoga training in NYC at Yoga To The People in early 2014 followed shortly thereafter by a 200hr RYS in Vinyasa, also at YttP. It is my intention as a yoga teacher to invite students to have their own individual experience on the yoga mat. For one student, growth could mean obtaining the strength and balance to stand on one leg after weeks and months of wobbling and shaking in the first part of standing-forehead-to-knee. For the student who pushes total exhaustion class after class and hits a wall, their break through could be finding the grace and compassion to rest or dial back. Both eventualities are beautiful and relevant to the process. I am so excited to be at Know Yoga Know Peace! See you all on your yoga mat.

 I first entered the hot room about 7 years ago at a Bikram studio in Queens, NY. I was taken with the intensity of the moving meditation.  The practice provides access to the spiritual through the physical. I would often feel pushed to my limits during class, but I would always survive and the sense of empowerment that gave me was amazing.  In the hot room, I discovered the strength to find sobriety, the ability to face my internal struggles, and the control with which to breathe. As an instructor I am a guide and each student is their own true teacher. I am there to assist the individual in their journey to self-empowerment.


 

After training at Yoga To The People in New York City I taught the hot series in Manhattan and Brooklyn at the YTTP studios.  I have also been able to teach at studios in North Carolina.  I take class wherever I travel and I have found my most recent yoga home at Know Yoga Know Peace where I look forward to sharing my perspective with our community.
