Carolena, LPC, RYT

I am a Carolina girl living in Napa, California. I love spending time with my family, friends and my precious dog Tony.  My happiest moments consist of soaking up the sun at the beach, traveling the world, dancing, going to concerts, laughing as much as possible and of course practicing and teaching Yoga!

Yoga became my avenue to self-care during graduate school while studying to become a mental health therapist in 2009. The practices of yoga nurtured self exploration and understanding during a time that I needed it most. I wanted to share all that yoga encompasses, so I pursued my yoga teacher training through Subtle Yoga in Asheville, NC. The foundation of my training is in Viniyoga under the work of Gary Kraftsow. My yoga teacher training is rooted in safe, trauma informed and therapeutic oriented practices. It is an honor to teach and to learn from all of my students. I strive to practice what I teach on and off the mat, showing love and compassion to all those around me.
