About Tom Pledger


Carol Stall
Director and Co-Founder of Namasté USA

Carol believes she was born to teach and that her calling is to pass on knowledge and wisdom that can bring peace and happiness to others. When she found Yoga in the 1970's, her calling found its roots, and her goal since then has grown to include assisting in raising the consciousness of humanity on Earth.

She first began studying Yoga in 1973 and started teaching yoga classes in 1979 at the request of several friends and colleagues, who wanted to explore what Yoga was all about.

Over the years, Carol has been led to a select few, truly masterful and gifted teachers, who have given method and intention to her yoga teaching and have nourished her ability to teach Yoga with a deep, inward focus not always found in what might be described as “monkey see, monkey do” yoga classes.

She brings to her students the best of what she continues to learn from many teachers and a variety of yoga and meditation traditions. Especially significant contributions come from the following, the best of the best: internationally recognized yoga teachers Donna Farhi, Irene Beer, Rossella Baroncini, and Vanda Scaravelli; Body Mind Centering Founder Bonnie Bainbridge Cohen; and Shri Anandi Ma, a realized Master and spiritual leader of Kundalini Maha Yoga, a lineage that originated in India thousands of years ago.

Since 1990, Carol has operated a holistic healing and yoga teaching practice in the Dallas area. In 2003, together with Vicki Johnson, Carol founded Namasté USA, a yoga teacher training program based on Vanda Scaravelli's unique and inwardly powerful approach to yoga asana practice. Prior to this both she and Vicki mentored yoga teacher training candidates in association with Namaste' International's 500 hour certification program.

Carol is now in the process of completing a book of poetry, written over a span of about 45 years, a project she has put on the back shelf for too many years. She is also writing and editing a collection of quotations from masters of spiritual wisdom that shine light on the teachings of Yoga and meditation. This book will appeal to both yoga students and teachers who appreciate Yoga's deeper practices.
