my story

Yolie Carrera (Yoga Instructor) Yolie is a yogini with a passion to heal, create, and inspire. She is known for sharing the ancient art of yoga roots to practitioners in a  creative, dynamic, and life transformational way. Yolie found yoga as a teenager and was hooked from day one. She continues to carry the practice through her journeys in life. Always knowing that yoga would be a part of her, she decided to follow her dreams and become an instructor in 2012.

Yoga has taken Yolie all around the world, Costa Rica included, where she completed her 200 hour teacher training with Frog Lotus International and is a RYT with Yoga Alliance. She has a focus in Vinyasa Flow, Prenatal and Restorative Yoga. She practices Bikram, Kundalini, and meditation regularly. She continues to share this wonderful practice with many at yoga studios, festivals, and special events.

In the Summer of 2015, Yolie Carrera co-produced Yoga on the Grass at Mamby Beach Festival, now Nadi Yoga at Mamby Beach Music Festival.  Feeling inspired by the beautiful experience, YolieYoga began curating classes in Chicago, IL.

YolieYoga’s classes and participation in events has expanded both frequency and locales.  Classes can take place anywhere; from nightclubs, to cruise ships, festivals, corporate events, and parks. Classes run anywhere from 30 – 75 minutes in a vinyasa-style flow that’s available to all skill levels. We are also open to customizing a class/program that fit the needs of the attendees to the best of our abilities.
