Welcome to the 22nd edition of the Hip Tranquil Chick podcast: a girl’s guide for living a luxe lifestyle on and off the yoga mat. On location at Tranquil Space studio in Washington, DC.
Today’s podcast is an interview on mindful relationships with Carol Collins, topped of with a pose of the podcast, book suggestions, hip tranquil chick chat, and fun podsafe music! View our shownotes at hiptranquilchick.blogspot.com.
Carol loves helping people learn about themselves through yoga. She focuses on mindfulness, encouraging students to reach within themselves to find truth and wholeness in their body and mind. Carol is the Postnatal Yoga coordinator at Tranquil Space where she has been teaching since 2002. She has developed her own style of hands-on "baby and me" yoga classes where parents gather to share common experiences, strengthen and open their bodies, and bond with their babies through "yoga play". Carol enjoys the graceful way in which vinyasa yoga flows through the asanas, develops stamina, strength and flexibility. Carol earned a black belt in the Korean martial art of Tae Kwon Do in 1994. Yoga is constantly teaching her the balance between competing toward an edge and accepting the grace of the moment. Carol also holds a Master's degree in Education and is a former school teacher and private math tutor.

Hip Tranquil Chick Chat:
"I am a fiber artist/ teacher/ stay at home mom and I create all kinds of visual and wearable art. I use Merino wool and make floral pins, felted jewelry and beads, and The Artist’s Clutch Bag. I am an extremely creative individual and I have returned to yoga to help me focus on my creative dreams. I wear many hats in my family and I struggle with finding time to take my art to the next level. I want people to enjoy it. Since I’ve discovered you, I listen and practice yoga more. It’s my retreat to my passion of creating art. While doing yoga I calm down and visualize my creative goals. It’s a great start in the right direction. Thank you for being so inspirational to me."
