Caroline has been living, practicing, and studying yoga for nearly a decade. She first came to the mat searching for something to fulfill her desire for a deeper awareness, and has never looked back. Her background includes a wide variety of styles including Vinyasa, Jivamukti, Anusara, and Ashtanga yoga. She began her studies with Lauren Lanham in Fairfield, Connecticut, while frequenting master classes in New York City with Dharma Mittra, David Life, and Bryan Kest. She also spent a year and a half in Paris where she studied Mysore-style Ashtanga yoga with Charles Bensusen and vinyasa yoga with Mika DeBrito.
Certified by the White Lotus Foundation in Santa Barbara, Caroline extends immense gratitude to her teachers, Ganga White and Tracey Rich, for inspiring her to explore a more intuitive approach to Vinyasa yoga. Now in Rochester, Caroline is completing her Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance and Literature at the
Eastman School of Music. Future goals include developing a yoga program specifically designed for classically trained singers that pairs traditional pranayama and meditation techniques with specific vocal exercises as a tool for role preparation and minimizing performance anxiety. She has already been teaching a pilot version of the program, both as a guest teacher at the Eastman School, and as a workshop at Tru Yoga. Caroline has been teaching at Tru since September 2011, and is thrilled to continue to offer classes in the vinyasa flow style that emphasize proper alignment and a mindful awareness of the transitions/space in between the asanas.
When she’s not pursuing her yoga practice, Caroline loves to travel, cook elaborate meals, hike mountains, and ride her bicycle.
