We hope that sharing Namaste student stories will inspire your own journey on and off the mat. Meet Carley Hauck, a devoted Namaste student for the last six years, taking a broad range of Vinyasa classes with teachers like Rachel Heron, Satya Gita Aune, Jaimi Patterson, and Anj Manitsas. Carley is passionate about teaching conscious leadership. Read on to see what inspires her, how her yoga helps her on her journey, and where her passions have taken her.
What inspired you to begin studying yoga?
I started my yoga practice at the age of 17. I taught myself from reading various books. Yoga has been a steady foundation and anchor of mine for half of my life. Yoga led me to my meditation practice and I practice both together multiple times a day. Thank Goddess for yoga!
What is your favorite thing about taking class at Namaste?
I enjoy taking classes with instructors that challenge me in ways I wouldn’t do in my solo practice. I appreciate the skill and heart of the teachers at Namaste.
What is one thing people might be surprised to learn about you?
I feel like I am just beginning to learn how to harness the power of being an empath.
Tell us some favorite things you do to help make every day sacred.
I try to incorporate grounding meditation, green tea, being grateful, spending time in nature, and being with those I love.
What is the best advice you can offer to someone struggling to start their own health and wellness journey?
When I practice yoga, meditate, move my body, and eat healthy foods I feel so much more grounded, patient, happy, and focused. There is a palpable difference that I commit to the practice everyday.
Share some details about your passion project!
I just finished my book SHINE – Ignite your inner game and lead consciously at work and the world. This book wanted me to write it and I was very committed to its birthing for 3 years amidst many twists. I wrote this book from my heart, body, and soul. I feel excited to see how it impacts those who read when it comes out March 2020. I hope it will awaken the leader in all of us and inspire a more sustainable and harmonious world.
My heartfelt commitment is to support people and planet to flourish. My heartfelt commitment is to serve leaders and businesses with the inspiration and tools necessary to be a force for good in the world. I believe that when you cultivate your inner game, you change your life and from here you can transform the world.
Join Carley for her first public offering to develop a strong inner game with a community who want to create meaningful impact in March with 30 Days of Mindful Living.
