Carolina Grace Lorenzo is a passionate lover of life, of heart to heart connection, soulful collaboration with others and the human dance of growth, healing, and embodiment. She is a yogini, a dancer, a mindfulness practicer, and a bhakti musician. These spiritual practices fill her up and support her in her intention to be a lighthouse of love and to offer a sacred, safe space for people to see themselves as the love they are. She brings all of this into her work as a therapist and a mentor and is thrilled to become part of the Stepping Stones community.
She has always been a mover and finds her spirit through dance, yoga, handstands, hiking, running and biking! She loves to do and teach handstands, for they remind her of the power of single pointed focus, and of overcoming the obstacles and limitations of the mind.
She has been teaching in one form or another since 2000, and holds teaching credentials in Special Education and Regular Education in the state of California and a Masters in Body Psychotherapy from Naropa University. She has been teaching yoga for 12 years and has studied yoga and meditation in India and with Thich Nhat Hahn in Plum Village. She has studied with Melissa Michaels and her soulful work for 5 years, and feels deeply privileged to have been introduced to rites of passage work through Melissa.
She loves educating, inspiring, witnessing and supporting people in overcoming their perceived limitations, though physical or emotional, and being a part of the catalyzing of a new story, a new empowered way of living that incorporates the whole self and is in highest soul alignment.
As a therapist, teacher and therapeutic educator she specializes in working with women and girls and issues related to empowerment; finding one’s voice, self-love, body image, personal power and sisterhood. She uses her full tool kit to meet each moment with love and grace and draw upon her intuition to bring forth what is needed to facilitate growth and healing. She feels so honored to be dancing this sacred dance and to be serving as a Leader for the Stepping Stones Project.
