Caro started practicing yoga in 1996 as a way to 'slow down', but yoga and self-care often took a back seat to her passion for International Nonprofit work. From The Dominican Republic and The United States, to Kenya and Romania, Caro spent years working in orphanages and building a NYC-based nonprofit to help eradicate human trafficking.
In 2006, Caro started to consider the responsibility we all have to self-care, especially those in the industries of caring for others.
"Without ourselves present, strong and well, we cannot do as well in the world".
At this point, she started an intensive yoga practice for emotional and psychological well-being in order to create a larger, stronger foundation for compassion, empathy and mindfulness to preside in her life. She refers to this path as 'Living in a State of Grace', a phrase that she first heard from her brother during one of their ambling conversations about mindfulness. She now uses this path to guide her through her practice, her teaching, and through motherhood to two incredible young boys. Her boys and her courageous farmer-entrepreneur-musician husband are her gifts and her teachers.
Caro completed her first training with meditation master Alan Finger (YogaWorks, NYC) in 2006. She started teaching in 2007, and from 2007 to 2013 attended the 500-hour Yoga Therapeutics Training and Integrative Yoga Therapy Track with Bo Forbes and The New England School of Yoga Therapeutics.
Caro is a member of The Yoga Alliance and The International Association of Yoga Therapists, and specializes in a slow and mindful Vinyasa Flow, Restorative Yoga and Yoga Therapy. She teaches at Inner Space Studio in Brookline and at The Yoga Space in Canton, MA.
