Gianna Carotenuto

Gianna Carotenuto, PhD, is an accomplished art historian, healer, and senior yoga teacher in the lineage of Ana Forrest, with nineteen years of combined experience. Her work in the healing arts focuses on helping students heal mental, emotional, and physical injuries through yoga asana and meditation, and to learning how to fully embody their creative spirit.

Students value Giannas ability to "see" and release trapped energy in the body, her sensitive hands on adjustments, and capacity to guide them into realms of deep healing, strength and awareness.

Her background in Zen meditation, workshops with the Dalai Lama, summer residency at Tassajara Zen Center, University research and teaching in the Art of India and Asia complement her yoga teaching.
