Carrie has been practicing Bikram Yoga since 2005 and teaching since 2008. From the first time she took class she fell in love with the practice. Through the practice she is able to connect with herself on a physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual level and takes this connection that she creates within herself to inspire her students to have access to that same experience.
Carrie believes that in order to give something away you have to have it with yourself which is why she stays committed to her own personal practice no matter how much she is teaching. Her teaching style is energetic and uplifting and she has a soothing voice that will relax your mind and guide you through the 90-minute moving mediation.
