Carly's love for yoga was instant after attending her very first class. From that moment onwards, asana, meditation and breath work became a part of her daily practice. As Carly's practice evolved, it had a therapeutic effect on her and helped her navigate her transition into adulthood with greater steadiness and freedom.
After completing over 650 hours of teacher training, her teaching style has evolved and adapted to the many influences of teachers including Dr. Scott Lyons, Mark Breadner, Nicole Walsh and Elena Brower.
Alongside yoga, Carly is a psychology student currently diving into her 4th year of research, exploring the therapeutic effects of meditation on the brain-gut link. She believes that both the physical, energetic and psychological practice of yoga functions to spiritually and mentally train people to become more alive, compassionate and embodied in their human experiences, whilst riding the highs and lows of life.
After she completes her 4th research year and Masters of Clinical Psychology, Carly intends to combine the practice of yin yoga and talk therapy as a therapeutic intervention where individuals can safely explore themselves.
For her, a physically strong class accompanied by an empathic dialogue guides people into the subtly of their bodies. The mat becomes a therapeutic container that provides a contemplative space for people to dive deep into the self. She believes that this exploration, with a widening of mental and emotional awareness, plus a nourishment of nervous system is what brings her and others back to the mat day after day.
