Caroline has devoted her life to learning and teaching, and considers herself a dedicated lifelong learner. Caroline studied mathematics for her bachelor’s degree, and her other abiding interests include theatre, mythology and Jungian psychology. She has trained in a range of skills, including creative writing, performance storytelling, jazz singing and ballroom dancing – some of which she has found relatively easy and some much more challenging! Caroline aims to weave together all the threads of her own learning process into her teaching practice, and is deeply committed to her personal growth and that of her students. Caroline practises meditation, yoga and dance movement: it is her intention to maintain flexibility of mind and flexibility of body!
