About

dsc_0505My name is Alena Hall, and I am a wellness writer and editor based in New York, NY. I joined the new Swirled team as their health editor in May, andI completed my 200-hour intensive yoga teacher training in March. I love engraining my foundations in yoga and personal health in all that I do, from my freelance work to my private yoga offerings. As I further build out my individual role in this world of balanced wellness, I look forward to simply capturing inspiration as it comes and growing from there.

I earned my master’s degree in magazine journalism from New York University’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute and my bachelor’s degree¬†from the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Journalism and Mass Communication. When I’m not in the office or working on my side hustle, I’m either¬†wandering through the city’s beautiful parks, experimenting in my kitchen with new recipes, or cuddling up with my cat Fitzgerald, a cup of hot tea and a good book.
