Caroline Cucchiara, E-RYT 500
Yoga History/Philosophy, Yoga Sutras and Ayurveda
Caroline (E-RYT-500) has been a dedicated practitioner and student of Yoga for more than 30 years. She has been teaching for more than 15 of those years – mostly so that she can be an even better student and practitioner. She took the deep dive into Yoga after reading just the first 2 pages of The Integral Yoga by Sri Aurobindo. In those few paragraphs Aurobindo answered the questions she had been asking for a long time: what is my purpose in this life? why am I here? Aurobindo seemed to personally reply to her: the most important thing to do is find out who you are, and to do that you must find out where you came from. He said this was the work of Yoga, so Caroline wholeheartedly set off on this path.
She is versed in a vast array of hatha yoga traditions including Iyengar, Ashtanga, Anusara and the Krishnamacharya/Desikachar teachings of the viniyoga of Yoga. Most importantly, Yoga has invited her into a deep study of the human experience through the teachings of the great masters, particularly the teachings of the greatest of teachers, Sage Patanjali. Caroline’s greatest passion is to share these teachings and help all of us who walk this exhilarating, terrifying, awe-inspiring, breath-giving, mind-bending journey we call Life to be steadfast, healthy and happy travelers.
