Carrie is an inspirational teacher and guide, whose passion for what she teaches shines through at each step. She is one of the most authentic people I have ever met. She lives what she teaches. The training I received under her was packed full of both the intellectual theory and the spiritual side of the practice. Her training materials are very detailed and an amazing resource. Her training provided me with the confidence and tools necessary to teach yoga as well as deepened my own personal practice.

Yoga & Ayurveda have fundamentally changed my life. They have helped me heal from childhood trauma and drug and alcohol addiction. They have helped me move away from anger, fear and feelings of unworthiness. Over the past 19 years of practicing and teaching, I have been able to trust in my innate goodness, access my inner light and honor my unique purpose for being here in this lifetime. One of my greatest joys is helping beautiful and brilliant souls, like you, connect to your own light so that you, too, may be a beacon for others.
