Carrie began her Yoga journey with a 12 year career in Massage Therapy, giving her the insight she needed into physical wellness. With a trained therapeutic eye, Carrie’s intuition in this marvelous field stemmed from her personal experiences with injuries, illness, and life. Somewhere in the midst of a divorce and an ulcer Carrie found Yoga and watched the healing effect it had on not just her physical, but her mental well-being.
In 2013 Carrie took care of her Mom through Cancer, teaching her breath awareness and simple movements to ease her mind. The passing of Carrie’s mom from this disease changed her life completely.
From this moment on, Carrie knew she needed to teach Yoga.
Carrie wanted to show people of all backgrounds, in all stages of life, who deal with illness, injury, and set-backs, that they too can benefit from this incredible journey that became suddenly spiritual for her, as well as mental and physical.
