About the Facilitator(s)

Lino Laure

Lino LaureLino Laure has been practicing meditation for over 25 years. A year after learning meditation, he had a spontaneous spiritual awakening, as the surge of kundalini energy awakened within him prompting a whole new level of life, self- awareness and direction. Since 1993 he began study and received guidance from his teacher, JK Gurukal, a master healer from Kerala, India, learning aspects of yoga, meditation, martial arts and the healing arts: applied sciences from the tradition of Dhanurveda. While much of what Lino has learned has been essentially for his own edification and spiritual evolution, he enjoys nonetheless sharing aspects of what he has learned with individuals who are open to a better understanding and experience of the art of yoga and meditation. Since 2010, Lino has taught extensive workshops and retreats in yoga and meditation at Kalani. He currently lives in the East Coast. www.linolaure.com

She enrolled at the Healing Yoga Foundation, with Chase Bossart and Kate Holcomb, a 500-hour teacher-training program in the tradition of T. Krishnamacharya. As Ayurveda and Yoga are the sister sciences to each other, Carol along with her Alexander training has developed a hands-on approach to working with these 3 systems of learning to help empower people in their own process of healing.
