We welcome Carly Smith, Certified Yoga Instructor, to our Vitality Team.
Carly’s passion for yoga is one which was gratefully stumbled upon. She got into yoga, as a means to overcome anxiety and worry, and quickly started to benefit from the unfoldings and transformations that yoga brought into her life. It not only improved her physical strength, it helped her foster inner peace and build self-awareness. Yoga has also helped Carly overcome obstacles and boundaries that she never imagined possible.
Carly also has a deep love of travel, which she was able to bring together with her passion for yoga in 2011 when attending a Yoga Retreat in Costa Rica. It was the most exhilarating experience of her life, and it was here that she made a promise to herself to continue to bring these two life loves together. Carly really enjoys experiencing different types of yoga in her spare time; this past summer she took her personal practice to the waters and discovered a playful joy in combining Stand Up Paddle Boarding and Yoga. Fun stuff!
Carly has taught Gentle, Power, and Restorative Classes throughout her journey and is excited to further her teachings with various class styles.
In addition to Carly’s 200 and 500 hour teacher training under the guidance of Shasta Townsend, Director of Balanced Life Yoga, she has also completed continuing education courses in Restorative, Pre-natal and Chair Yoga. Carly is certified as a 200RYT with Yoga Alliance and is very close to achieving her 500RYT Certification with Yoga Alliance. Through Carly’s personal journey and her ongoing training, she has both the deep desire and the skills to support others in leading a more balanced, fulfilling, and healthy lifestyle.
Carly will be floating on the schedule, subbing various classes at Vitality. This week you may join her for Thursday, September 12th’s Vitality Flow @ 10: 30 am, and for Sunday, September 15th’s Blissed Out @ 9:30 (PS. It is also FREE YOGA SUNDAY!).
Welcome Carly…so good to have you on board!
