Carrie Owerko

Carrie Owerko is a Senior Intermediate Iyengar teacher and continues her studies with the Iyengar family by traveling to India on a regular basis, as well as by continuous in-depth studies with her yoga teacher, Patricia Walden. Before studying yoga, Carrie earned a BFA in dance and theater, graduating from the renowned Neighborhood Playhouse Theater School in NYC. Carrie then spent several years working for a movement, educational, and experimental theater company called The Irondale Ensemble Project. After Irondale, she continued her inquiry and became a Certified Movement Analyst, completing her studies at The Laban Institute of Movement Studies. She 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.
