Hilary Cartwright


Following her career as a soloist with the Royal Ballet (England), Hilary became a director, a ballet teacher, a coach and she also began to stage ballets.  She is now an Ashton Associate. She has developed the newly named Yoga Narada®, which she has been teaching for the past 25 years as "Yoga for Dancers" after co-founding White Cloud Studio in New York with Juliu Horvath.

Her unique approach and presentation of the work has taken her all over the world. Her acclaim appeals both to internationally renowned ballet companies (Paris Opera, New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theatre) as well as schools for young students and an expanding group of individuals who are non dancers.

A Yoga Intensive retreat Course, which she started in Italy the summer of 2006 was housed in a beautiful picturesque villa outside Florence.  It continues annually although recently now housed in different villas and locations in Tuscany, but none of them less than stunning. This original endeavour expanded to include retreats in Puerto Rico, California, Portland, Seattle, London and Bath England, Paris, Morocco and Costa Rica.  These together with future locations will become training centers for the team of new teachers she is assembling and will direct.
