Carol Nelson has been captivated by the magic of yoga since 1976 when she first met and studied with Mr. B.K.S. Iyengar.  Her 30 years’ journey has taken her around the world studying and teaching.  She founded one of Boston’s first yoga centers in 1977, the Creative Yoga Studio.  “Creative” describes her method, an approach that embodies the simplicity and serenity of yoga.


You can read about her in Dan Wakefield’s book How Do We Know When It’s God? (Little, Brown, Co.) and Roanne Weisman’s book Own Your Health (Health Connections.) She is a featured model in two books publish by Rodmell Press; Back Care Basics by Dr. Mary Pullig Schatz and Relax and Renew by Judith Lasater PhD., P.T. and contributed the yoga section to Margit Esser Porter’s book Hope Lives (h.ic. publishing.)


Carol teaches at the Shambhala Meditation Center in Brookline, the Center at Westwoods, and the Greater Boston Area. She is yoga teacher in residence at Window’s to Sea on Martha’s Vineyard, offering private sessions, small group classes and weekend workshops with internationally known guest teachers.
