“I participated in Stair and Carson’s retreat in July of 2018 and it was an incredible experience. The best thing about the retreat is that the Calhouns make you feel right at home with their warm house and amazing hospitality. Carson and Stair are so passionate about their practice and its contagious. I highly recommend this retreat to anyone who wants to take their yoga practice to another level, but with the company of wonderful people.”

Get to know Carson
A self-described “Handstand-Up Comedian,” Carson combines his love for being upside-down with his natural ability to make people laugh. During his classes, workshops, and retreats, students are encouraged to push their limits and explore their edge, while maintaining a playful attitude. In every instance, one can be sure to break a sweat, learn something new, and leave with a smile on his or her face.
After years of encouragement from his mother, Carson began practicing yoga in 2010. He did his first 200 hour teacher training in 2011 at Little River Yoga and has since studied Ashtanga Yoga with David B. Keil and Rocket Yoga with David C. Kyle. As a movement enthusiast, Carson incorporates a variety of disciplines into his yoga classes, which focus on building a strong mind and body.
