An adventurer by nature, Carley thrives in the outdoors. From surfing to rock climbing to skiing and hiking, her feet are happiest in motion except when they land her solidly on her mat. As a full time yoga instructor for the past 5 years, Carley offers classes in yoga studios, corporate offices, and clinical settings. She believes yoga is accessible to everyone and guides her students to listen to the deeper more subtle cues of their bodies to overcome whatever curve balls life may have thrown them. She adds laughter, compassion, strength, and skillful physical adjustments to her classes in the hope to inspire individuals to reach their greatest potential both on andoff the mat.

A former journalist, Nicole was first drawn to heat, the powerful flow and the hands-on assists she discovered in power vinyasa classes as a bridge from her intense workdays into presence and peace. She came out of every practice calmer and more joyful. Now a certified Baptiste power vinyasa yoga instructor, Nicole brings love, joy and energy to her teaching, encouraging you to explore your edge, to find full self-expression and to see the incredible possibilities on your mat and in your own life. Her intention is to empower students, to serve and to create dynamic communities.
