Horizon is proud to host internationally acclaimed yogi Carson Clay Calhoun in our studio to teach our first 200hr Teacher Certification. A self-described “Handstand-Up Comedian,” Carson combines his love for being upside-down with his natural ability to make people laugh. During his workshops, trainings, online coaching, and yoga retreats, students are encouraged to push their limits and explore their edge, while maintaining a playful attitude.

Carson began practicing yoga in 2010. He did his first 200 hour teacher training in 2011 at Little River Yoga and has since studied Ashtanga Yoga with David B. Keil. He has since evolved his focus and loves teaching Rocket Yoga. As a movement enthusiast, Carson incorporates a variety of disciplines into his yoga classes, which focus on building a strong mind and body.

Horizon Hot Yoga’s teacher training with Carson promises to be intense and inspirational, as we focus on asana, pranayam, meditation, Vinyasa yoga, movement, strength, grace, and discipline. These topics will be wrapped up in Carson’s fun-loving teaching style. The training is February 4 – March 3, 2020. Check out Carson’s webpage to learn more about him. (
