Carolyn began her fitness career teaching cycling classes in 2001. She likes to bring elements of her outdoor rides into the indoor format. She uses positive motivation and powerful music to help her students achieve their fitness goals. In 2002 she started teaching yoga and quickly discovered all the other benefits for health. The practice of mindfulness, breathing, stretching and strengthening took her students fitness to new levels and added a new sense of being present and at peace. She embraces the way that Yoga balances out her life. Carolyn works to establish a positive experience in her classes using intelligent sequencing and creates a comfortable, non-competitive space where students can safely explore their practice while challenging themselves. Carolyn's core belief is to live life to the fullest and be your truest self. Carolyn has over 1,000 hours of yoga teacher training and certifications including 200 hour E-RYT through YogaFit, Anjali Restorative Yoga, 500E-RYT Prana Flow Yoga with Shiva Rea. She is an AFAA certified Group Exercise Instructor, and is a certified cycle instructor with Schwinn, Keiser and Cycle Reebok. She is proud ambassador for the Athleta Tysons Corner Store.
