Thanks for dropping by! My name is Carly (she/her). 
I’m a massage therapist who is certified in manual lymphatic drainage, and a student & teacher of Yoga. My passion is in co-creating a more peaceful, liberated, and gratifying life for myself and others. 
I actively participate in continuing education and personal development programs in pursuit of providing my clients with the most thoughtful and informed services possible. I'm currently diving deeper into yoga studies with Susanna Barkataki's 300hour Yoga Teacher Training program, Embody Yoga's Roots, and learning from a diverse and experienced community of educators.
It is my hope that the services I offer will bring you a sense of peace, confidence, and equilibrium.


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 Certified Manual Lymphatic Drainage (Vodder Technique) course to better serve clients experiencing chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, cancer patients and post-surgery clients.  

When we feel better, we can do greater good in the world.


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 and offer 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). You can find my yoga schedule here.

All of the public yoga classes I offer are beginner-friendly and donation-based or sliding-scale fee.

Mindfulness is at the heart of all my offerings; my mindfulness studies include an introduction to Vipassana, the Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Course developed by Jon Kabat-Zinn at UMASS, and mindfulness-based continuing education with Cultivating Inner Stillness. My mindfulness practice is life-long homework; I look forward to continuing in an effort to help myself & others stay present for this precious life.
