Carol Caparosa has been practicing yoga regularly for the last 8 years and completed her 200-hour teacher training certification program at Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health in February 2016. She focuses her teaching on beginner students introducing them to the many facets of yoga including postures, breathing techniques, mind/body connections and taking it “off the mat.” Carol has taught at Source Yoga and Fitness Break, both in Northern Virginia. She is a member of Yoga Alliance and Kripalu Yoga and Ayurveda Association.
Carol has a special interest in helping people who are in stressful situations, especially those in health care related environments. As a result of her experience being the Mother of a pediatric patient many years ago, she started a non-profit organization, Project Knitwell, in 2010. Its’ mission is to utilize knitting as a wellness tool for people in stressful situations. Carol is a volunteer knitting instructor at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital where she teaches patients, family members and health care providers how to knit. Those she teaches tell her continuously that they are calmer, less stressed, and feel a sense of accomplishment as a result of learning to knit. Knitting has a meditative quality and recent literature explores it as an important practice in mindfulness. Carol sees many connections between yoga and knitting and has participated in events combining the two.
