Carrie Klaus E-RYT, Owner/Director

You'll find Carrie's class to be a mix of serious yoga focus and light-hearted fun. Each class is different, covering a wide variety of yoga postures and yoga styles. Carrie believes that every body is different and will help you find your most comfortable pose through various modifications. She will encourage you to make your practice your own and have fun!

Carrie began her yoga practice in 2003 after the birth of her first daughter. She started yoga as a way to get her body in shape after pregnancy, but quickly realized that yoga had so much more to offer. While continuing her physical practice she began to deepen her knowledge of yoga. As a result of experiencing greater peace in her life, Carrie decided to begin sharing her love of yoga with others. She enrolled in teacher training and has been sharing her love of yoga ever since.

Carrie completed her 200 hour teacher training at Eternal Health Yoga under the guidance of Shelli Carpenter. In addition to holding a 200 hour certificate and being registered with Yoga Alliance, Carrie also holds a teacher training certificate in Yin Yoga Practice and Theory which she received under the guidance of Paul Grilley. Carrie continues to learn new information to share with her classes by participating in workshops and trainings.

Carrie is a lifelong resident of Southern Indiana, where she lives with her husband, 2 daughters and 3 cats. When Carrie isn't teaching yoga she's busy homeschooling her daughters and watching them compete in swimming and gymnastics.

Anne Darku

Anne began practicing yoga almost accidentally through her training in theatre not realizing that the warm-ups and cool downs were sun salutations and other asanas. Once she moved into a regular practice, she savored how it freshened her mind, created a sense of strength from the inside out and even seemed to make her walk taller. In 2009 she was inspired to pursue teacher training in Nashville, TN where she completed her 200 Hour Certification. Anne believes yoga truly is for everyone, all bodies, anytime.

Laura DeMent

Laura was first introduced to yoga in 2002. At first, she enjoyed yoga as a form of exercise that did not bother her knees. As she continued her practice, yoga became a way to live her life in a balanced and healthy way. In 2005, Laura was asked to sub a yoga class and realized she would enjoy teaching. That fall she enrolled in OM yoga's Weekend Warrior teacher training in Indianapolis and graduated in 2006. Laura's teaching is inspired by her teachers, Seane Corn, Chris Crews, Frank Mauro, Ramanand Patel and Laura Spaulding. Her classes focus on alignment, breath, flow and the use of props to make the asanas (postures) accessible to all students.

Cindy Whalen, RYT

Cindy began practicing yoga in 2010. She soon found that it brought her peace, joy, and better health. She enrolled in a teacher training program to strengthen her personal yoga practice and to develop the skills needed to share yoga with others.

In August of 2012 she earned her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training Certification at Eternal Health Yoga school and is registered with Yoga Alliance.

Cindy's yoga classes are light-hearted and compassionate. Her intention is that your yoga practice is allowing you to connect to your best self and feel good in the body that you inhabit.

"I want people to feel safe and self-empowered in their yoga practice," she says.

Cindy has enjoyed a beautiful background in classical dance, therefore health and movement have long been important to her. She recognizes the power of yoga to simultaneously relax, recharge, build strength, create flexibility, and instill respect for one's body.

Cindy and her husband love spending time with their son, daughter-in-law, and two amazing grandchildren. She's grateful for the opportunity to practice yoga with you.

Cindy also offers GENTLE YOGA for Breast Cancer Patients and Survivors. Classes are held at Inner Spring Yoga. For more information about these classes please contact Cindy by phone: 502-544-0273 or by email: mindfulspirit13@yahoo.com
