Carissa, Yoga Teacher

I discovered yoga 20 years ago as a university student. Over the years my relationship to practice has evolved with the common thread of coming back: onto the mat, into my body and to the space between my breaths, thoughts and emotions right now. My yoga mat has followed me from NYC, to many places all over the world until arriving here now in Paris.

I am fortunate to have taken my first teacher training in NYC at Om yoga and, with my fairly recent discovery of Ashtanga yoga and the Mysore practice thanks to Ashtanga Yoga Paris, was extremely happy to participate in the 200 hour teacher training in 2020 with Linda Munro and Gérald Disse. I feel very privileged to be able to share the practice of yoga with others.

When not on the mat, I am a nurse specialising in infectious diseases who has been working with with Médecins Sans Frontières for many years.
