A note from Carrie:

Yoga is an exploration of self and I encourage my students to turn their attention inward to understand what is real for them in each moment. I started practicing yoga in 1995 with the news of my first pregnancy. Looking for something that would stretch & strengthen my newly forming body, relax my mind and ease the anxiety of childbirth; yoga was the perfect fit. Many years later, as a hatha yoga instructor, my vision is to create an open and safe environment in which new and experienced students can comfortably practice.
Students will learn to establish a rhythm using breath and movement while becoming aware of their bodies and creating stillness within their minds. Connecting with their inner messenger and learning how to nurture themselves. Carrie
