Carmelina began her teaching career as a yoga instructor, training in 2000 in Wales with the Life Foundation in Dru Yoga and then with the Anahata School of Yoga in 2004, becoming a teacher of Hatha Yoga in 2006. In 2010, she also trained in Vinyasa Yoga on Holy Island and has also travelled to Nepal, Mexico and Thailand to study yoga in depth.
In 2007, Carmelina trained in London with Stott Pilates. After attending a class at Mind and Body in Kirkcaldy and discovering the benefits of Pilates, she took the opportunity to train and then teach classes.
Based in Kinross, Carmelina teaches yoga and Pilates there and in Milnathort, Carnbo, Crossford, Dunfermline, Maryburgh and Kirkcaldy.
Carmelina also specialises in teaching stress release techniques with the practice of pranayama (breathing exercises), yoga nidra, relaxation and meditation in classes, small groups and one-to-one.
Carmelina has been teaching with InspireFit since January 2011, and is a valued member of the team. Her gentle but thorough teaching style has ensured that her classes are always full. Carmelina says she is passionate and committed to InspireFit as the team are professional, motivated and fun.
In 2016, Carmelina became a teacher trainer after writing a manual with her own teacher, and helped to set up and teach at a school. She loved this experience and plans to do it again in the future, as well as running retreats.
