Carolina Balan Yoga Instructor

Carolina Balan

Founder of Miami Vedic Center

Not knowing that taking a yoga class at the local gym would end up changing her life, Carolina Balan took her first Anusara yoga class in 2010 and knew she had found her passion. A passion that would also heal the decades of suffering with chronic asthma, allergies, inflammation, depression, insomnia, and the inevitable excess weight gains. Every time she stepped on her mat, relief engulfed her, and a new spiritual connection was born. This path would lead her to study with Patrick Nolan, who would change her life forever by introducing her to Ashtanga yoga. Teacher training would soon follow at Corpo Yoga Studio where she received her RYT-200 Yoga Alliance Certification. Over the past 9 years Caro has taught and practiced the Ashtanga Yoga method, following the ancient tradition of Parampara, the passing on of knowledge from teacher to student. She has also had the privilege of studying under great teachers such as Kelly Brandon, Andrea de la Madriz, Beatriz Niebla, Daylene Christensen, Tim Feldmann, Kino McGregor, Greg Nardi, David Keil, Scott Hendricks, and Paige Elizabeth. Her biggest honor has been to practice with Sharath Jois, Manju Jois, and Saraswati Jois – all three the direct descendants of Ashtanga Yoga Guru Sri K. Pattabhy Jois.

In the last 10 years, Carolina has also dedicated a large part of her life and career to help saving, healing and rescuing many children from the Autism Spectrum through various protocols, biodiets, and biomedicine. Her main interest and goal is to bring this aid to many communities mostly throughout Latin America by participating in different organizations such as TACA, Generation Rescue and the organization Defeat Autism Now. Taking initiative in 2018 to create her own group supporting families with special needs children around the world through social media networks. All these experiences have led her to develop a wide knowledge of the digestive system and its relationship with the brain, achieving a vast understanding in nutrition. This knowledge has lead to the creation of protocols to assist each individual through personalized help and support to get rid of the majority of illness in the immune system, treating many allergies and inflammation, all linked to high levels of toxicity in the body.
