Training Implementation Specialist
Jodi Castallo is passionately committed to helping others learn, grow, and change through the simple power of paying attention in the present moment. Jodi has been exploring this easy but not-so-simple concept, for over 17 years through the practice of yoga and mindfulness. She is a graduate of the Yoga Life Institute’s 200-hour Classical Yoga Teacher Training, is certified through the Yoga Alliance, trained in Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction, completed Massachusetts General Hospital’s “Stress and the Relaxation Response: The Fundamentals of Mind Body Medicine” course, and has attended many other workshops and retreats. These opportunities have afforded her the unique ability to customize practices that work for her and a more intuitive sense of how to share them with others. Through her role at Center for Resilience, Jodi feels honored to be working with both the students at school as well as the adults through training programs. This gives her a unique lens on what is needed in the workplace though not necessarily being taught in the schools. Jodi has a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Biology from Bucknell University and a Master’s of Science degree in Environmental Science from Antioch New England Graduate School. Before coming to work with Center for Resilience, she spent 18 years collaborating with, educating and helping communities in both Maine and Rhode Island with land-use planning issues.
