Hey, y'all! I'm Lynell -

I am an international educator with more than a decade experience working with, and learning from, children and adults in traditional and non-traditional educational settings about a myriad of topics.

I am also a traveler, among many things! I’ve fused my passions of travel, education, yoga and language learning into a mobile academy – Rooted U Yoga Education – that allows me to be me, wherever I be 🙂

I am curious about Nature, and my connection to Nature. I recognize that the human experience is vast, and I’m on a mission to normalize the intricacies and diversities that exist within our lifespans.



One of my main goals in life is to stay rooted in my truth and have compassion with myself and my process (and how often it changes me).

#STAYROOTEDYALL was created as an invitation for folks to become curious about and explore exactly what it is that helps them to stay rooted throughout the twists and turns of life. It is a reminder to breathe, move, rest/retreat, embrace life and trust the Divine Plan. 

I create spaces for children and adults to explore practical tools and applications of yoga philosophy through their multiple intelligences on & off the mat. We honor the roots of the practice and interweave them into the root systems we create in our communities. 

I honor my teachers and learning experiences, as use them as motivation to share my gifts as an educator. My teaching journey has brought me to share with people of all ages, across several continents, and experience many cultures.

My yoga journey has brought me to live in ashrams worldwide to study myself and yoga philosophy very deeply and intimately. I have taken 1000+ hours of trainings and taught several thousand hours of classes and teacher trainings. 

Leadership and community and self-expression are pillars. I believe that we are all leaders at something, and we each have an important role in our communities. Join me on an interactive journey of self-discovery and empowerment to discover how you #stayrootedyall.

Love, Carla

Serve. Love. Give. Purify. Meditate. Realize.
