Carly has been teaching yoga and meditation since 2002. She opened the Beverly Yoga Center in 2006 to offer a welcoming and comfortable place where people can nurture their bodies, calm their minds and connect with their hearts. Carly has always been curious about how uncomfortable feelings, fractured relationships and difficult life circumstances can linger within us and how yoga can help us relate to these human experiences.
Carly’s teaching philosophy invites students to slow down, breathe consciously, develop awareness and cultivate an inner friendliness. She is an experienced yoga teacher in many disciplines, with certifications in Hatha and Yin yoga. She is a trained Somatic Yoga Therapist; specializing in helping people reduce symptoms and suffering who experience stress, anxiety, low mood or chronic pain. The tools, practices and resources she teaches integrate the mind, body and heart. She is also an Insight Yoga teacher, which blends yoga and meditation with an exploration of the human spirit. In addition, she uses the Internal Family Systems model in her teaching. This is a therapeutic approach in self-discovery. She teaches private yoga and meditation sessions, writes a monthly blog and leads retreats around the world. Carly has been a devoted student for over a decade to her spiritual teacher, Jennifer Welwood, who blends Psycho-Spiritual Inquiry within the context of Buddhism. ••••••••••••
