Certified Applied Meditation Counselor
200RYT with Yoga Alliance
Carina found yoga and meditation as a way to soothe her anxiety, which had grown into panic attacks. She started taking yoga classes and enjoyed a calm and ease that she had never experienced before. This led to a love affair with yoga and her certification as a yoga teacher through Cloud Nine Yoga School, whose director Erika Faith Calig continues to inspire her practice. During that same time she also began learning about Yin Yoga with her teacher Sasha Papovich and quickly incorporated this subtle yet powerful yoga into her personal practice. Now she loves teaching it to others. She has been teaching yoga for 10 years. Her meditation practice began at roughly the same time. With the gentle and encouraging guidance of her teacher Dr. Andrew Shugyo Bonnici, she has been a dedicated meditation practitioner for the last 14 years. She has also been certified as an Applied Meditation Counselor through the Applied Meditation Institute and has led meditation groups and counseled individuals for over 10 years. Carina is passionate about teaching yoga and meditation as a way to connect deeply to the well of aliveness, clarity, compassion, and ease that are inherent within everyone.
