Cara Calderone

Cara Calderone is fun, energetic and filled with passion, especially when it comes to sharing her love of Yoga.  Cara is a certified RYT 200 hour yoga teacher, and a RCYT, 95 hour certified Yoga and Mindfulness Children's Yoga instructor through ChildLight Education Company.  She started practicing yoga while in college, as a way to stay active.  She immediately fell in love with all of the postures she was learning.  After practicing for a few months, she became aware of the calm sensation she felt each time she stepped onto her mat.  Cara started to pay closer attention to the role her breath played on and off the yoga mat and was amazed at how it could positively affect the way she felt physically and mentally.  She soon learned that yoga was much more than moving your body in and out of postures and began to learn about mindfulness, meditation and yogic philosophy. 

     Cara’s asana, meditation and mindfulness practices as well as, her love of yogic philosophy and traditions, carried her through her college years as an education and history major.  It continued to support her in her role as an elementary school teacher and mother.  She witnesses regularly the stress and academic demands that are placed on students of all ages.  She also sees the affects these demands have on children’s physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing.  It is Cara’s passion to provide children of all ages with a kind and caring environment to learn and practice yoga, mindfulness, meditation, and social emotional skills.  Cara’s life path is to empower children to believe in themselves; to believe in the abilities they already possess and those that are still to grow.
