Horizon is proud to host internationally acclaimed yogi Carson Clay Calhoun in our studio to teach our 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.
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.
Carson began practicing yoga in 2010. He did his first 200hr teacher training in 2011 at Little River Yoga and has since studied Ashtanga Yoga with David B. Keil. He also 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. Check out Carson’s webpage to learn more about him.
