Caroline trained in Fine Art before going on to do an M.A. in dance. Subsequently she taught dance and movement to all ages, as well as choreographing and performing for film.

In 1995 she completed a bodywork and movement diploma with Ken Eyerman and began practising as a massage and bodywork therapist at the Drill Hall. She also began to train in ashtanga vinyasa yoga with John Scott and in 1996/7 travelled to India and the Mysore Institute to experience the teaching of Sri K Pattabhi Jois.

During the next few years she went on to practise regularly at Sangam yoga with Gingi Lee and from 2001 with Stefan Engstom in Finland. She taught at Natureworks in Central London, Globe House, Surya yoga, Greenwich Dance Agency (yoga for dancers), and ran private groups as well as working one on one.

In 2006/7 she completed a 108 hour anusra immersion with Bridget Kramer Woods, and has attended workshops with Max Strom, David Williams and a week long course with Richard Freeman in 2009. Richard Freeman and Tias Little are important influences.

In 2009 she began a year long study of yoga sutras applied to daily life, with Swami Saradananda. Caroline has completed a 3 month teaching meditation intensive with Swami Saradananda integrating meditation into her teaching practice. She has travelled to India with Swami Saradananda on pilgrimage, both to South and North India, where she first visited Ganga Prem hospice clinic, and subsequently became a trustee in the UK for www.gangapremhospice

Between December 2010 to March 2015 Caroline completed 160 hours of training in Yotopia dynamic flow yoga including basic principles of fascial anatomy, basic fascial touch, adjustments and movement principles and now hold a ‘Fascia Through Movement’ certificate.From 2014 she returns yearly to stay at the Finnish island of Kadermo, with Ashtanga teacher Stefan Engstrom, whose approach to anatomy of wholeness in yoga has been a strong influence. Subsequently, Caroline qualified as a somatic coach with Brian Ingle and this powerful embodied approach to movement has influenced her teaching; the somatic sequences can also be taught separately and are a therapeutic support to every individual.

In 2017 she qualified in Neuro Dermo Modulation with Louise Tremblay. This work focusses on gentle manipulation of surface skin to release nerve pain caused by nervous system output. This work informs not only her hands on work but also her therapeutic approach to teaching.
