CIARA DESMOND, 500 Hour E-RYT

Chief Yoga Officer + Teacher Training Lead
DSC05701

Ciara found Pilates and Yoga in college at the University of Maryland, where she was pursuing two degrees – Kinesiology and Communications. She received her Beginner & Intermediate Pilates certification through Power Pilates in 2011. However, when life got busy and her yoga practice faltered, she decided to fully throw herself into her new passion and joined the CorePower Yoga Power 200-hour Teacher Training program in 2013. The 8-weeks in the program changed her life and her practice for the better. She went on to train in Yoga Sculpt, Hot Power Fusion, and Restorative yoga with CorePower and has led several Yoga Sculpt and 200-hour Teacher Trainings since then. Being able to combine her love of fitness, movement, music, and community is exactly what she wants to do with her life and she couldn’t be happier to spread her love of pilates and yoga to everyone she meets.
