Our Soulfire

Our WHY

Carlene and Marisa are the co-creators and owners of SOULFIRE POWER YOGA™.  They met on the field, families in tow, to support their sons as they learned the game of football.  They connected as moms and found a mutual love of yoga and in particular the ability to see yoga everywhere, all the time and with everyone!  

Baptiste Yoga changed each of them and enriched their lives to such a degree that they want to share it with everyone!

Carlene and Marisa are committed to their own practice and discovery.  They continue to train personally with Baron Baptiste and the Baptiste Institute bringing that learning into each class and to the team.

Our Teacher

Baptiste Yoga™ was founded in the 1940’s by Walt Baptiste and through his son Baron, it has evolved into a practice that holds true to the spirit of its creation while remaining accessible to anyone today. The physical aspects of Baptiste Yoga™ are inspired by the Hatha Yoga teachings of Krishnamacharya and his students Iyengar and Desikachar, whom Baron Baptiste studied with personally from a young age.

For more than 25 years, Baron Baptiste has devoted his life to creating and sharing transformational yoga practices and programs. He shares the Baptiste Yoga methodology through workshops, books, yoga teacher trainings and his continued work with non-profit organizations.

An entrepreneur and visionary, Baron is committed to sharing Baptiste Yoga in ways that make a real and lasting difference in the lives of people across the planet. His approach to yoga has been a catalyst for society’s acceptance of yoga as a popular practice and is now being used by millions of people globally.
