For most of her life, Carrie Owerko has been immersed in the study of movement: from athletics to dance and theater arts, movement science, yoga, and beyond. Carrie earned a BFA in dance and theater, worked professionally as a performer in NYC, and taught theater and movement in the NYC public schools and with inmates at Riker's Island Correctional Facility. She studied Movement Analysis and received her CMA from the Laban Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies. She also spent decades studying Iyengar Yoga and earned a senior level teaching credential. Carrie has spent years enthusiastically exploring human movement with the intention of helping people develop clearer, more fully embodied communication and expression. Curiosity, openness, and affection are of utmost importance in her approach to Iyengar Yoga, as is the integration of science, yoga philosophy, and poetic imagination. Most importantly, she loves to explore the relationship of discipline and playfulness and is a firm believer in the power of controlled folly.
