We have the most amazing sangha! Many of the students we have worked with over the years have become like family. We appreciate you all, your hard work and commitment to self care, self practice and sharing the light of these beautiful teachings. Here are a few student experiences.
“Meeting Carlisle and Zap has been a life changing experience for us.The two of them have so much knowledge, and a genuine passion in their teaching. They balance each other beautifully in all aspects and their teachings are so complete and rich. We feel every yogic experience we have with them, whether being asanas, theory lessons, meditation etc makes us open our eyes more, increases our understanding and makes all our daily experiences fuller and more meaningful. Having teachers like C&Z is a gift we wish everyone could have the chance to experience.” – Line
“Carlisle and Zaplin embody the teachings of yoga in the most beautiful, practical and humble way. Their passion and devotion to teaching is a reflection of their breadth of knowledge, personal practice, and their teachers. In trainings, creating balance between holding space and guiding is essential and they did an incredible job, staying tuned into the needs of the group while also staying on schedule and covering the ground necessary to meet requirements. It is an honor to have attended an immersion and training with them. As a direct result of studying with them, I now have a consistent, effective personal practice and am inspired and able to share with others. If you have the opportunity to self study with these two beautiful souls, I highly recommend you say YES!”- Emily
“Zaplin and Carlisle are passionate about everything they touch. I have worked with/been a student of Carlisle and have enjoyed watching her growth and empowerment over the years. Zaplin seems a perfect compliment to her. This is The Team that greets you on the mat, wherever you are, without judgement, with compassion and enduring love. I completed several successive programs with them, each time deepening my awareness, knowledge and ability to share. This past Spring I was blessed to have a guided pancha karma with them. Through their vast wisdom, insightful and attentive care I was guided through a complete purge of old samskaras and emotions that were continuing to hold me back. I have experienced a surge of creativity, boost in my yoga business and a drive to help others, all whilst feeling balanced, keeping my heart and mind free, open to possibilities. They individualize your experience and inspire you to be sensitive to your own daily changes/needs. I look forward to each time our paths cross and the continued knowledge and love they impart.” -Shera
“I’ve worked with Carlisle and Zaplin across various retreats for Yoga/Ayurveda as well as for Panchakarma. The style in which they share their cumulative knowledge has been inspiring and transformative for me on so many levels. I have always had an interest in Yoga (asana) and Meditation but it took studying with them for me to truly understand the purpose of practicing. Something was missing for me when it came to Yoga, until I met them. Because of their teachings, I understand Yoga as a way of life, and in my experience, there are no two better guides in the process. They have studied for years and years and continue to. They live and breathe their practice. Their extensive knowledge and understanding allows them to help students find balance and health through Ayurveda, which is much needed in truly practicing Yoga. They are able to meet each student where they’re at to help them prepare to practice Yoga from the ground up. They help students find their own practice and work with them so that it’s sustainable, personal and safe. Carlisle and Zaplin deeply honor the traditions of Yoga and Ayurveda and it comes through in everything they do. Their teachings are authentic, traditional and effective. Whether studying Yoga and Ayurveda or undergoing Panchakarma, working with them requires discipline, dedication and hard work. And for me, it’s been life changing.”- Ashley
“I have been a student/client of Carlisle and Zaplin for more than 5 years. With expert guidance, gentle nurturing and highly skilled treatments, they have steered me toward a practical and individualized path to health and wellness. I have been inspired by them to rekindle a long-lost light of daily meditation. It’s been a major game-changer for me. One of their most powerful strengths is an uncanny ability to accurately pinpoint areas of my mind and body that might require attention. I can honestly say I’ve experienced deep transformational healing every single time! Nutritious meals, nature-bathing, daily meditation and movement practices are among the many experiences served up with so much warmth, love and authenticity on their glorious farm in Maine!” -Fran
“Absolutely amazing. I couldn’t have asked for more thoughtful, kind, and respectful teachers who were willing to share all their information with me. All I had to do was pay attention and ask. I absolutely love these two, and will be back to train with them many times over. Thank you both for all your kind words and your thoughtful lessons. I can’t wait to see what the future holds in my practice.”- Kimberly
