Carrie was born and raised in a small town in Virginia.  She graduated from a 500 hour massage therapy program in 2004, going on to further train in 750 additional hours of clinical modalities, which provide her an in-depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology, and the body-mind connection.  She worked extensively throughout the state in clinical and spa settings, athletic events, and wellness retreats. In 2011, she founded an award winning clinical massage and wellness center, overseeing a group of holistic practitioners and working directly with local physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists for rehabilitative bodywork, muscular injury prevention/treatment, post-op recovery, and pain management.  

After moving to Colorado, she completed her 200 hour yoga teacher certification. She came to yoga in her twenties, as a way to counterbalance the wear and tear of 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.  The moving mediation, of the practice, brings clarity, strength, balance, healing, and harmony into her life. She decided to become a yoga teacher because she believes in the power of connecting breath, mind, heart, and movement through yoga.
