Cari Wilder, Owner and Director of Kula Yoga on Main studio, began to practice yoga over 15 years ago. As a competitive swimmer, runner and water polo player, Cari found that yoga not only balanced her body, but also her mind. Cari has been teaching since 2010 after completing an RYT 200 hour certification with TeriLeigh Schmidt in the Baptiste Power Vinyasa style. She has also continued her yoga education by exploring the playful practice of Acro Yoga under the guidance of Joe Barnett and Yuki Tsunji-Hoening. Cari’s approach to teaching is energetic and heartfelt, and her classes are a dynamic combination of strength, alignment and depth. This blend of compassion and power creates a space for students to explore their edge and open up to their authentic selves. At her core, Cari believes that we grow the most within community, and is committed to bringing safe, effective, and empowering yoga to the Roaring Fork Valley, making our local community an even better place to live.
