My name is Carolyne, and I am a 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Certified Yoga Teacher, and Level 2 Certified Reiki Practitioner. There is nothing that lights me up more than supporting people on their journey within, and in my opinion, yoga & mindfulness provides the most potent tools for that.
I discovered yoga over 7 years ago after years of struggling with depression, substance-abuse, and feeling deeply unfulfilled & lost in my life. When nothing else seemed to be working, I found myself being guided towards the mat.
I remained consistent with my practice, and learned about yoga philosophy, asana (postures), meditation, and various mindfulness tools that were supporting me. I started to get to know myself and tap into a sense of authenticity and self-love that I hadn't experienced before, even throughout my years of traditional therapy. The more I practiced, the more I was able heal trauma/wounding from the past, connect with my heart, and start living a life of purpose.
At the root of it all, yoga & mindfulness has helped me embrace the full spectrum of my human experience & emotions. I am now able to bring these teachings to those in need of support to help them navigate their emotions on a day-to-day basis in a healthy & holistic way.
Having experienced first-hand the immense physical, emotional and spiritual benefits that come with having a yoga & mindfulness practice, it has become a part of my North Star to continue spreading these teachings to the community.
