CAROLYN JAGADAMBA TEXIDOR
Having been diagnosed with three Autoimmune diseases, Hashimoto's (Hypo-Thyroid) & Rheumatoid Arthritis and Sjogren’s, her health was going into a fast decline for about a year before being diagnosed.
Suffering from things like swollen & stiff joints, confusion, debilitating bouts of exhaustion, sleepless and painful nights, she needed to find a way to help herself. Having a strong preference to holistic and natural healing, she gave herself the gift of attending a gentle yoga class.
After a few months of practice and feeling the incredible changes happening to her body, she decided she needed to be trained in Yoga & Meditation so that she could share this practice with anyone who was willing to try.
She completed her RYT 200hr certification intensive studies, spending 30 days in seclusion from everyday life, living in a tent under the California stars training at The Sivananda Vedanta Yoga Farm Ashram, in Sacramento, CA.
She is also Owner/CEO of Squeeze'D Juice & Wellness Bar also located in the local community. She is passionate about peace, love and using yoga to bring community together.
C-Ray, as his students call him, brings over 30 years of teaching experience drawn from yogic traditions as varied as Sivananda, Integral and Iyengar. His uniquely personal style emphasizes an alignment, shape and direction through a vigorous practice that explores classical postures in depth and with increased intensity.
Students of all levels are encouraged to examine and surrender habitual behaviors in body and candor and humor. C-Ray guides practitioners through a journey that is challenging, at times unpredictable, and always fun.
