While embarking on her undergraduate degree, Carly discovered yoga as a way to decompress from the pressures of college life. She attended her first hot Vinyasa flow class with Amani Murray and was hooked. After graduating with her degree in Foreign Language Studies, she decided to pursue her newly discovered passion and study yoga.
With her newfound passion and love for the practice and philosophy, she spent 4 years working in a South Charlotte yoga studio and completed her RYT-200 with the Enlighten Yoga school. During her teacher training, she had the priceless opportunity to study with Shari Goldstein (E-RYT-500) and Hilary Bifulco Kossack (E-RYT-500).
Carly’s teaching focus is on introducing beginners to the yoga practice, Yin Yoga, Restorative Yoga, Vinyasa, and Slow Flow. Since her journey began with heated asana, Carly feels right at home teaching with Atha as her passion for teaching heated classes can flourish.
She challenges her students to push themselves physically and mindfully, focusing on balance, strength, focus, and mindfulness. Carly encourages her students to take the mindful tools they learn on the mat and practice them in their everyday lives off the mat.
