About Your Yoga Instructor(s):
Things I know to be true in my own experience- hardships are inevitable. Grief and pain are part of life and denying that fact only makes our struggles more painful and more difficult. I love life and I believe in the transformative power of positive thought, kindness, and compassion and know firsthand that there are more layers in life than the bright and shiny ones. Our work is to own ALL of our pieces and ALL of our experiences in order to embrace our true brilliance. Our strength comes from utilizing our resources to be fully seen, fully heard, and fully expressed.
I have found my personal strength through the healing practices of shared vulnerability and truthful expression, in whispering softly to animals, finding delight in the simple pleasures of the senses, traveling to connect with new landscapes and new people, moving my body in ways that it expresses feel best, slowing my mind through meditation, honoring myself and the Earth through ceremony & ritual, and receiving massage therapy sessions.
It’s become my life’s passion to hold space for individuals along their own personal path. Each of us holds the keys to our personal healing and stabilizing resources. I create sacred spaces for clients to redefine their lives after a loss, empowering them to create and grow resiliency and joyful expression with a deepened appreciation for the beauty of the Spirit.
Hi! I’m Carrie. I believe in connecting deeply, expressing fully, experiencing richly…and supporting others in doing the same. I’ve been in pursuit of life-affirming experiences and wild-hearted adventurer for as long as I can remember. As a professional certified coach, I get to have the kinds of conversations that you wish your best friend was trained and willing to have with you: highly intuitive, deeply authentic, no bullshit, and consistently relating to you as your highest and best self, even when you forget who you are. As a yoga practitioner and teacher, I am committed to helping you respect, appreciate, and enjoy being at home in your body. As a transformational retreat facilitator, I see over and over that the alchemy of travel, self-discovery, connection, and yoga among a community of similarly curious and engaged individuals will transform you if you let it. I hope you’ll join us on this special adventure as we Explore & Expand both grief AND joy, together.
