Instructor: Carmel Calcagno
Carmel began her practice in 1989 after a book fell on her head in a local bookstore. The book “Initiation” was not about yoga but reincarnation and in one the lifetimes the author was an Egyptian Princess and did yoga every morning. She bought the book and took her first yoga class the same month. After practicing for 7 years her teacher asked her to teach for him while he was away, not her plan, but it was the beginning of her teaching experience. After 10 years of practicing yoga Carmel met John Friend, creator of Anusara Yoga, and began her practice with the most amazing group of teachers ever! She was certified in 2003 and opened her studio, Yoga Anjali, in Belmar, NJ the same year. Carmel has a strong meditation practice as well after being initiated into Neelakantha Meditation by Paul Mueller-Ortega of Blue Throat Yoga in 2008.
