Kelly Carter

I began practicing yoga in 2006. It didn’t take long till I started to see the effects of how the practice impacted my life. I am passionate about my practice and have the desire to share this passion with the world. I am a certified Baptiste power yoga teacher and received my 500hr with Dharma Mittra. I teach mostly power yoga vinyasa because it changed my life. Building the Shakti community with my sister Lauren has been one of my greatest adventures. This community has come together through a shared love of yoga and continues to grow and expand outside the studio walls. I am inspired by the leaders and teachers at Shakti Power Yoga and leaders from the Baptiste community who motivate me to continue to move forward and expand my boundaries. My husband has been my biggest support and the way his business impacts Nashville continues to inspire me. Workshops, teacher trainings, and destination retreats have brought me so much joy, and I am grateful to have the opportunity to co-lead retreats with the woman I love and admire, Lauren. We offer a retreat that will give you the opportunity to rejuvenate, reconnect with yourself and others, practice, practice, practice, and immerse yourself in the experience of the beauty of Thailand.

Lauren Farina

I first started teaching in 2009, and since then, I have continued to grow as a teacher and student. I am blessed by many teachers in my life and have learned powerful lessons from each along the way. Every day is an opportunity for growth and to connect with others.

I am Baptiste Certified, and my practice and teaching is rooted in the Baptiste Methodology. I have also trained with Sri Dharma Mittra and he has taught compassion and peace in my life and I am honored to be able to teach the techniques and practices he has shared with me. I am a 500 and 800 hour Certified Dharma Yoga Teacher. What I love about the practice is that I will continue to always be a student; there is something new to learn each day from my students and in my own practice.

My sister and I opened Shakti Power Yoga in Nashville in 2012 and every day I am grateful for our community and the space we have created together. I am blessed by the growth and support of our community.

Yoga has transformed my life and I am grateful I can be a service to others by sharing my passion. Yoga has allowed me to unfold a strength in my body, an ease in my mind, and an openness in my heart that I did not know was there. In my teaching and practice my intention is to create a powerful connection with myself and others and to be open to what is right in front of me in each moment. I believe kindness, presence, and gratitude is the key to happiness and endless possibilities.

I am so excited to be leading this retreat to Thailand with my sister, Kelly. Together we create a powerful team of love, growth, connection, and fun. Thailand is a magical place and I am excited to explore the beauty the country provides and connect with all of you. Cheers to spending a week to rejuvenate the body, mind, and soul.
