She returned to the United States at the end of 2009, and completed a 200-hour teacher training program at the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, California, with its founders, Ganga White and Tracey Rich in the summer of 2010. After completing her undergrad, Caroline moved to Rochester NY, where she earned her Master’s Degree at the Eastman School of Music, and studied Iyengar yoga with Francois Raoult at Open Sky Yoga. His expertise in alignment and anatomy, as well as pranayama and meditation has deeply influenced Caroline’s teaching to this day.
Currently, Caroline is pursuing a Doctorate of Musical Arts in Voice and Opera at the University of Connecticut, and has been teaching group and private classes at Storrs Yoga Center since she moved to the area in 2013. All of Caroline’s classes are deeply informed by a strong foundation in human anatomy and proper posture alignment, as well as sensitivity and awareness of injuries, limitations in range of motion, and experience of each student at every age and level of practice.
