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.
My love for yoga began over thirty years ago. While the level of commitment to my practice varied over the years my belief in the benefits of yoga has never wavered.
In 2012 I began teaching after completing my 200 Hour Yoga Teacher Training. Since that time I have completed advanced training certificates in Yin Yoga, Meditation, Applied Yoga Anatomy and Restorative Yoga. I have studied under teachers such as Josh Summers, Doug Keller, Marlysa Sullivan, Yoganand Michael Carroll and Jason Crandell. I will begin work toward my Registered Yoga Teacher-500 Hour Level in the summer of 2017 through Daniel Oralansky in Arlington Massachusetts.
I welcome you to join me on the mat regardless of your age or physical ability. Yoga is for everyone and the beauty of yoga is that it will meet you where you are. Namaste.
Aside from her teaching she enjoys hiking with her dogs, bowling and spending time with her family and friends.
I started practicing yoga in the 1970s. In 2017 I completed the 200-hour teacher training at Samadhi yoga in Manchester, and teach there as well as at other local studios. I have taught tai chi since 2008.
My goal as a yoga teacher is to bring yoga to everyone who is willing to give it a try! May I share my appreciation for yoga with you?
