Selena Garefino began practicing yoga when she was 13 years old. Yoga has been and continues to be for Selena, a vehicle for learning to shift from habitual emotional and behavior tendencies towards serving 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, Douglas Brooks, Rod Stryker, 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. Selena is a PhD Candidate in South Asian Anthropology. And holds an MPH in International Health.

It was a life-changing experience with amazing women from all over the world (okay Canada, US, and Europe ;)) and especially amazing teacher who taught us not only the yoga practice but also important things for everyday life. The accommodation was very nice, super clean and super helpful and friendly personal and we had healthy yummy food ;) Selena is one of the most inspiring women I have ever met. She taught us a lot about anatomy (in a way everybody can understand and practice it), and she brought us to a state where we could actually enjoy a meditation. She is like a living encyclopedia, no need for google anymore when you need something to know about Yoga History. Full of love kindness and knowledge of philosophy (real good stories about the Indian Gods ;)) and life in general. If you are looking for a high-class​ yoga teacher training, for a place where you can reflect and learn about, then this is the place! I will definitely come back here if I will do my 300-hours advanced teacher training in the next couple of years!
Hands down, the most amazing adventure of my life! The people, the food, the guides, and the landscape were extraordinary. Selena is an exceptionally talented teacher, both in yoga and in life. Her knowledge of the Nepali people, customs, traditions, and language make her uniquely qualified to lead this trip, and her storytelling kept us thoroughly entertained. The hotels/lodges, transportation, meals, and scheduling were well thought out and as perfectly delivered as one can expect in a place like Nepal. This is the first time in my life I really can't come up with a negative thought!

First time up in the mountains, first time in a cabin, and first time doing a yoga teacher training. Everything was more than what I could ever imagine. One of the best experiences of my life. Completely aligned with my own wellness journey and future endeavors. There was so much knowledge and passion between Selena and Rhoni. They truly changed my life and look forward to working with the each of them to further my education in ALL Things Yoga. With so much gratitude in my heart, THANK YOU!
