Welcome! I am Carolyn Young, a wife, a mom of two teenage boys, an Ashtanga Yoga practitioner, an International Certified Health Coach (IAHC) and a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT-200). I love nutrition, fitness, reading, travelling and warm weather.
Your health is your most important asset, without it, you lack motivation to focus on anything else. When your physical needs are met you'll have the energy and inspiration to focus on your dreams and life goals. Together we will discover how you can transform your health and make sustainable lifestyle changes that work best for you.
There’s no magical pill or secret to obtain a healthy lifestyle, it’s about sticking to healthy habits, being mindful and recognising that you are unique. What works for you may not work for someone else. Learn about my Health Coaching Programs.
I currently live in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with my husband and our two sons.
I love sharing what I know about yoga, healthy eating, and wellness with others.
Wow! So much to say about this GEM 💎!!!! She is super talented, life’s what she does... and knows how to support her clients with her knowledge and intuition. She is a true healer and I am so blessed to have met her - Laleh M.
Carolyn has the amazing ability to connect with you, that feels comfortable and supportive to clients. She’s warm, genuine and has great energy to match. I’m so grateful for her, she’s the real deal!! - Sitira P.
I have worked with coach Carolyn during an intense and stressful period of my life and am recommending her wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a physical and mental balance. -Mirjana M
My top three goals for coming to yoga are to improve my balance, vastly improve my flexibility, lose weight and tighten up “loose bits". Carolyn was able to help me work towards my goals by motivating and encouraging me and having empathy to my tight hips. She is sensitive to personal needs (not everyone has the same flexibility).
The biggest tangible change I have noticed since beginning yoga has been I can now touch my toes and I relax more. I have strengthened my willpower and my concentration levels.
Carolyn is an excellent teacher, who is very passionate of what she does. She is very skilled and knows how to pass on information easily.
I would recommend my yoga teacher to everyone. I find Carolyn’s teaching method to be the best I’ve seen. Always motivating and encouraging. She makes me love yoga! - Lenny N.
My top three goals for coming to yoga are to focus inwards, relax my mind and body, and stretch and strengthen my body. Carolyn was able to help me work towards these goals by guiding through the breathing while using a gentle and serene voice, providing clear instructions for every move and pose, giving alternative options if my body is not ready to do a certain pose.
The biggest change I have noticed since beginning yoga has been being more conscious about using my breath to relax my mind and body. I am more focused in the present moment and conscious about using my muscles in a different way than other forms of exercise.
I feel more in control of my mind and complementing my pilates practice, my body feels more balanced between strength and flexibility.
Carolyn has a strong will and a warm heart. She is confident, focused and practical who strives for the best in everything she does. Curious and eager to learn, and always happy to share and help others. Carolyn herself is a testimony of what you can achieve with self discipline, determination and love for yourself. She is an example and an inspiration to her students and everyone who gets to know her. - Angie M.
Carolyn was able to help me set goals and hold me accountable, gave me tips and recommendations and handouts with specific information. She encouraged me and supported me.
More focus!! Although still a challenge, I now know the direction I want to go in life and working towards that. It makes it now easier to choose and to commit. It doesn’t have to be perfect to start is also one of the big things I have learned. I have come across my own blind spot and characteristics I thought I didn’t have. Also I have now been saying “no” to things that are not helping me achieve my goals. I am more focused.
I would describe Carolyn as very professional. She encourages you and also holds a mirror. She is also very accurate. I would recommend Carolyn to anyone wanting and willing to change their lives. I learned a lot these 6 months working with her. It was challenging at times and an insightful journey. I am so thankful for the coaching by Carolyn. - Audrey F.
