Carrie was born and raised in a small town in Virginia. In 2004, she graduated from a 500 hour massage therapy program, going on to further train in numerous clinical modalities, which provided her an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and the body-mind connection. She would work extensively throughout the state in clinical and spa settings, athletic events, and wellness retreats, and eventually founding an award winning wellness clinic, overseeing a group of holistic practitioners, until moving to Colorado in 2015.
She came to yoga in her twenties, as a way to counterbalance the wear and tear of distance running on her body. Over time, yoga became more than just a physical practice and she found it to be transformative on and off the mat. Yoga is where she finds and connects to her true self, again and again. The moving mediation, of the practice, brings clarity, strength, balance, healing, and harmony into her life.
She completed her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training course in 2020. She decided to become a yoga teacher because she believes in the power of connecting breath, mind, heart, and movement through yoga. She is grateful for the amazing teachers she’s had in her own yoga journey, and hopes to one day be able to guide her students to their own deeper, fulfilling practice. She has a specific passion for Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra.
Outside of practicing or teaching yoga, she enjoys being in nature, hiking, time with family, reading, road trips and adventure.
