Carina originally hails from a dance and movement background having performed and studied Contemporary dance locally. Her yoga journey began after be…ing introduced to hot yoga back in 2012, where she completely feel in love with it. In addition to achieving a stronger more supple body, she loved the feeling she had after completing a class, the freedom, the focus and the peace of mind it gave her both on and off the mat. She quickly began to experience the profound effect that yoga has, not just on the body but the mind.
For me, it is sometimes just turning up on the mat and becoming present. Yoga has, taught me how to become present in my life and the importance of breath and stillness, not only on the mat but off the mat too. Carina soon became an avid Ashtanga practitioner and started to explore other styles of yoga, completed several 30 day challenges, she has been lucky enough to attend workshops lead by Ajay Kumar and attend yoga retreats around the world, spent a month in Mysore, India exploring her own practice and then finally she embarked on The Fierce Grace Yoga Teacher Training, where she trained under Michelle Pernetta Founder of Fierce Grace Yoga. Carina has since undertaken more training to teach more restorative yin classes to compliment her more energetic yang classes.
She is passionate about making yoga accessible yet challenging and connecting her students to the practice’s higher purpose as a vehicle for becoming present and accepting whatever is going on. Her uplifting classes take students on a creative journey, exploring the use of breath, body and awareness to create a beautiful flowing practice taught to an awesome soundtrack.
