Carolyn Theresa Simon

I'm an internationally certified yoga educator (500 RYT, QCI Level 2). Earlier, I was the training academy lead for yoga at the fastest growing fitness company in India, cult.fit & continue to be a part of various marquee programs & content projects with them. I completed my studies at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Ashrams (TTC, ATTC) & went on to study Ashtanga Yoga from the Paramaguru Sharath Jois at KPJAYI/SYC, Mysore. I also work closely with the Indian Men's Hockey Team at SAI Bengaluru.

Current fitness goal

My cheat day looks like

I believe in having everything in moderation so I don't really have cheat days. But when I feel like having something, I just have less of it. And I love sharing my food so if I feel like having a burger, I just have a bite from my friend's.

Favourite Character

Simba from The Lion King

Trend I'd like to see dissapear

All the different kinds of yoga that are coming up like beer yoga, goat yoga, etc.

Your fitness+wellness journey

My biggest learning is to just feel everything that is happening, to understand where it is coming from.

Superpower you wish you had

Everything, everywhere, all at once. To be in different places at the same time, to be able to do one thing (but also the other!) at the same time via my clones.

Biggest Learning

  • Cosmix No Nonsense Protein Powder has been a great product and it's one of the best protein powders I've tasted.
  • The changes I've noticed are increased vitality, improved endurance during workouts, and quicker recovery.
  • The product is perfect for active individuals and athletes looking to enhance their protein intake.
  • For me the product also seemed easy to digest and I enjoyed the different flavours, another plus is that there is no added sugar to the mix and mostly monkfruit extract is used for sweetness
