ABOUT

Thanks for dropping by! My name is Carly & I’m a massage therapist and yoga teacher with a passion for helping myself and others experience liberation and live a more connected, gratifying life.

My greatest joy is to help clients find relief from chronic stress, fatigue, anxiety, and depression through sharing therapeutic massage, manual lymphatic drainage, yoga, mindfulness, and meditation.
I actively participate in continuing education in pursuit of providing my clients with the most thoughtful and informed services possible. 
 
It is my hope that my offerings will bring you a sense of peace, confidence, and equilibrium.

 

A little bit more about me...

 

As a Registered Yoga Teacher, I guide a slower-paced Hatha class to provide you with moments of stillness & one-pointed focus (dharana) in a trauma-sensitive and body-positive way. My intention is to honor the traditions of yoga while offering an accessible practice.  I achieved my initial 200hr training through Bhav Brigade and Dr. Diane Malaspina’s comprehensive program; additional training includes Restorative Yoga, Bridging the Practice of Yoga and Modern Healthcare, Trauma-Informed Yoga, and Yoga for Addiction Recovery. 

I'm currently enrolled in Susanna Barkataki's 300hr Embody Yoga's Roots teacher training (Summer - Fall 2022).

 

I offer 30-minute Mindful Mornings yoga classes live on Zoom 5+ days a week (learn more here) and in-person classes with Bhav Brigade (see schedule here).  All of the public yoga classes I offer are beginner-friendly and donation-based or sliding-scale fee. You can find my yoga schedule here.

Mindfulness is at the heart of all of my offerings; I have completed the 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at UMASS and mindfulness-based continuing education with Cultivating Inner Stillness.  Practicing mindfulness is life-long homework that I look forward to doing in an effort to stay present for this precious life.

 My massage treatments move at a mindful pace and depth, encouraging your nervous system to restore calm, balance, and optimum functioning.

Since graduating from the Healing Arts Center in St. Louis, MO in 2009 I have maintained Board Certification - the highest attainable credential within the massage therapy and bodywork profession; it’s an advanced credential separate from entry-level state licensure.

In 2022 I completed a 40-hour course to become Certified in Manual Lymphatic Drainage (Vodder Technique) to better serve clients experiencing chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, cancer patients and post-surgery clients.

May we all live life with more ease.
