Selena Garefino E-RYT, MPH, PhD Candidate
Selena is the co-founder of Sarva Rasa Yoga and Barre Align. She leads international yoga retreats that artfully combine yoga, movement, coaching, journaling, and meditation to help you connect with your inner voice and wisdom, to connect to your soul’s call, living a life of highest possibility.
Selena completed her first vinyasa training with Core Power Yoga. She went on to study with Sarah Powers, Melina Meza, Anne Phyfe, Nicolai Bachman, Elena Brower, and Noah Mazé. She has studied Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Pre-natal and Postpartum Yoga, Vinyasa, and Hatha Yoga.
Selena is dedicated to teaching movement through artful alignment to support her students on and off of their mats. Her classes offer yoga and meditation as a mechanism to shift the way we offer ourselves in all aspects of our lives and as a tool for granting profound healing in our bodies, our hearts, and ultimately our relationships. She is deeply committed to raising up a generation of innovative, knowledgeable teachers to bring the gift of yoga to their communities and the world.
Selena holds Masters of Public Health from Boston University in Maternal, Child, and Infant Health and International Health. She is a PhD Candidate at the University of Montana in Medical Anthropology specializing in South and South-East Asia and Maternal and Infant Health.
She also teaches mobility, calisthenics, Pilates, and barre. She believes that specialization always has a price in the body and encourages her students to cross-train, lift heavy things, and move.
