Studying different dance genres has always been a passion for Serena Qualliotine, RYT500. During her youth, performing with the Pittsburgh Community Ballet Company in Pennsylvania, then studying dance education through college at East Carolina University, has allowed her to connect with expression and movement. Through dance, Serena was introduced to yoga.
As an adult, her practice of yoga strengthened as the need for a healthier and more balanced lifestyle was necessary. Since 2011, Serena has been helping others connect with movement and yoga. In 2012, she completed her 200 hour Yoga Alliance teacher certification under Martha Catz, M. S.,E-RYT 500, at The Yoga Connection, in Smithfield, North Carolina, and has enjoyed teaching the practice and philosophy of Hatha yoga since.
In December of 2017, Serena completed the RYS300 Kunga Yoga Therapeutics program at Wilmington Yoga Center, in Wilmington, North Carolina, where she is currently instructing a variety of classes from gentle to power flow.
Serena embraces understanding the history, philosophy, and benefits of meditation with yoga, as well as the physical practice for all bodies, from beginners to advanced.
