Veena (Carrie Black) took her first yoga class while in college and knew there was no turning back. Since then she has continuously studied yoga and meditation. After attending the Living Yoga Training program at the Satchidananda Ashram in Virginia, she took the Classical Yoga Teacher Training with Swami Jaya Devi and graduated in 2011. She additionally was able to serve Kashi Atlanta as an apprentice from 2011-2012 and has been working on her 500-hour Kali Natha certification since 2012.
Veena’s classes focus deeply on asana (posture) as a moving meditation and an opportunity for grounding, introspection, and transformation. She has also found much stillness and growth through yin yoga, and is excited to share this practice with others.
