Carrie's fascination with yoga began because she wanted to attain both the physical and mental benefits of the practice. And over time, the breath and postures have led to refinement of her awareness of both the inner-self and the exterior-world. In many instances this has allowed her to find her way out of imbalance and back to a state of wellness.
For Carrie yoga is a portal to contentment, balance, strength, fluidity, enlightenment, and access to unspoken truth and extended vitality (to name a few). She is grateful that in this life she has the opportunity to help guide others on their own yoga path.
