Carrington Jackson


Carrington took the first steps along her yogic path in Denver, Colorado, in 1994. Her journey began with Bikram Yoga and after a few years, she found herself drawn to the strength and beauty of Vinyasa Yoga. Through the creative process of marrying movement to breath, the transformation from a physical practice to a spiritual practice was born. After much time as a student, Carrington gratefully attained RYT200 status in 2004 and RYT500 in 2010. Along her journey, Carrington realized yoga was much bigger than just a physical endeavor of asana, but rather a way to connect to the very core of self. The core of self is the place of spirit, the place of connection, the place of the divine. Ultimately, the soul of her practice is about bringing peace, understanding and healing to the world. One of the strongest core values she practices and teaches with is the art of listening to the body’s own wisdom. By listening to ourselves, we realize everything we’ve ever wanted to know is already there. Her journey of yoga has had many teachers along the way. A few teachers who have influenced Carrington’s personal and teaching practices are Seane Corn, Sharon Gannon, Ainslie Macleod, Terry Brown, Suzanne Newton, and of course the greatest teacher of all Life. Carrington calls Blue Lotus Yoga her home, leading weekly yoga classes, annual yoga retreats both internationally and locally, and lastly, guides sections of the Yoga Teacher Training and Immersion Program at Blue Lotus. In addition to serving as an Ambassador to Lululemon, Carrington currently serves as an Off the Mat Leader, Yoga Votes Leader, Seva Coordinator for Blue Lotus Yoga Studio.
