Yoga Nidra


This class is taught by:

Paul Herzer

A certified Kripalu yoga teacher, Integrated Amrit Yoga Method, and certified Yoga Nidra Master Facilitator, Paul came to yoga because of chronic pain and inflexibility. The least flexible yoga teacher you’ll meet, he believes the measure of yoga isn’t in how far you can bend but in how peaceful you can be. With advanced studies at the Amrit Yoga Institute in Yoga Nidra, yoga posture and philosophy, Paul travels the East Coast deepening his practice through his love of learning and teaching. When not teaching yoga or studying with Gurudev Yogi Amrit Desai, Paul can be found chanting with Bhagavan Das or talking about beards. He is lovingly grateful for all his teachers both far and near.

Carol Parr

Carol walked into Gold's Gym on a cold February morning in 2006 expecting to learn how to pump iron and walk on a treadmill, but instead, found yoga which has grown into a deep passion. On a cold February morning in 2014, at Kripalu School of Yoga in Lenox, Massachusetts, Carol graduated from her 200 hour yoga teacher training and is passionate about sharing her love for yoga as a way of life for people of all ages and physical abilities. One does not have to be a "pretzel person" to enjoy and gain the benefits of body, mind and spirit that yoga offers to anyone.

A former music teacher and currently pastor at St. John's Lutheran Church in Steelton, Carol graduated with a B.S. in Music Education from Taylor University, her Master of Divinity from Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg, and the Shalem Institute of Spiritual Formation with a certification in Spiritual Direction. She is also certified in Quantum Touch energy healing, and in past-life regression by Dr. Brian Weiss.

Carol's three sons are all grown up now, and as retirement begins calling her name, she looks forward to many years of sharing her love for yoga with others, excited about the opportunity to do that at Yoga at Simply Well.
