Carla Stockalper

E-RYT 500 – Ultra competitive athlete Carla was en route to a college basketball scholarship when a series of reconstructive knee surgeries put her on a different path. After her physical therapist suggested hot yoga would help her recover, Carla discovered hot yoga not only healed her knee, it calmed her mind. Carla completed her hot yoga teacher training with Bikram Choudhury in Los Angeles in 2003. A popular teacher, she taught at several studios before opening Yoga Tropics in 2006. Carla completed Baron Baptiste’s Power Yoga Training in Hawaii in 2010 and in Chicago for a year. She has also trained in Prana Flow with Shiva Rea, Vinyasa with Vinnie Marino, Dharma Yoga with Kristyan Stjerne and other notable instructors. Carla completed Ashtanga Primary Series Teacher Training with Tim Miller in Encinitas. Carla joined the Sean O’Shea Team alongside Rich McGowan of Ashtanga Yoga Center and currently works to bring yoga to kids at the Rady’s Children’s Oncology Unit. What started as physical therapy has evolved into a way of life. Carla’s classes mirror who she is – helping students find stillness and ease while challenging themselves. She recently opened Yoga Tropics Pacific Beach. Carla loves surfing, photography and is a talented artist.
