(no class May 28)
For the last nineteen years, I created and ran A Perfect Knot Yoga on Madison’s east side. I closed this studio and am thrilled to be part of the goodness now happening at Supercharge Foods.
Once graduated from Bikram Choudhury's second formal 500 hr. teacher training in 1995, I added yoga instruction to my career as a professional Massage Therapist. I have continued my studies through various teachers and self study. Since opening the yoga studio in 1996, I have taught 6 -11 classes per week and have private yoga and massage clients.
You can expect me to always be kind and encouraging. We will utilize asana (poses) to increase the health of the joints, internal organs, bones, blood flow plus oxygenation and muscle contraction and release. Every practice, we will lower stress in the body and the mind. Self witnessing and recognizing cultural conditioning (that may crush our vitality, originality, and natural contentment) and then steadfastly casting it away is my main practice toward the yogic goals of truth, non-harming, contentment and self-knowledge. This exploration is present and encouraged during asana practice if one wishes. Understanding habitual reactions/patterns of the mind and witnessing our attitudes and perspectives from a step back are ways to find our own center. This ability to be calm, centered and non-judgemental amidst challenges allows clarity and kind intelligence to flow forth.
Useful anatomical and holistic health information will be offered and I understand something about dealing with illness as I was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes in 1982, when I was 20 yrs. old, and wear an insulin pump. I also have personal experience with depression and anti-depressant drugs.
If you are pregnant, poses can be adapted appropriately and numerous women have used this class pre- and postnatally.

Barbu Panaitescu has received countless hours of formal training and taught steadily for seven years, in New York, Boulder and now Madison. He weaves classical yoga, Buddha-dharma and his own ridiculous life into a class format that is sometimes profound and others absurd. Participants are given simple and effective tools to practice in daily life and encouraged not to be too serious. Barbu has taught advanced as well as beginning yogis - thus his classes are suitable for all, focusing on alignment, deep breathing and joy.
Cari Sims has completed over 700 hours of yoga teacher training, with an Advanced Certification from Yandara Yoga Institute and a 200 hour certification from Alex Pfeiffer’s 21st Century Yoga on the Mat Teacher Training. She is also a Reiki Master practitioner and holds a USSF National ‘D’ License.
Cari creates a safe and peaceful space in which you will learn new ways to move–whether through yoga, meditation, soccer or strength training. Cari effectively combines all of these practices in her fresh approach to human movement. Her strong teaching abilities are in-depth, specific to every individual, and enhance confidence in all of her clients.
Cari’s approach to yoga extends beyond individual poses or any singular dogmatic approach. She embraces the Science of Yoga, functional biomechanics, and energetic intuition to help students release tension and build strength. As an athlete, Cari understands first-hand the challenge of feeling inflexible and adapts her teaching to all body types and experience levels. Her unique blend of cutting-edge science, centuries-old common sense wisdom, and an ever-burning desire to help others succeed is what truly fosters a one-of-a-kind experience in her classes and sessions.
She sees her yoga practice as akin to preparing slow food; requiring patience, focused attention, and compassion in order to bring the highest energetic benefits to the body.
In addition to guiding yoga practices and strength training, Cari is also a youth soccer coach. She works with players to help them become move faster, think more quickly, and be more powerful on and off the field! She also teaches Yoga for Teens.
Cari’s personal and professional goal is to be a role model for young people in today’s society by helping them find confidence in their bodies, their minds and their dreams.
