My name is Alena Hall, and I am a wellness writer and editor based in New York, NY. I joined Swirled in May 2017, serving as the deputy editor who also happens to write about all things health-related. I’m also a YogaWorks-certified yoga teacher. 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(s), 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.
