Carey comes from a sports background--playing soccer and running track at the Naval Academy. After graduating, she commissioned into the Marine Corps. Carey spent about two years in the Marine Corps before a health issue got in the way. This is when she really became passionate about yoga. "I was able to connect and get in touch with myself and my body when, in other situations in my life, I felt like my body was failing me." A year later Carey earned her 200 Level Yoga Teaching Certification through Yoga Alliance and is now considered an E-RYT 200. She is also certified through Power Pilates in Mat Pilates. She is now healthy and happy---loves competing in marathons, other races, and just being active. "I love leading students through a flow and find it so empowering to watch students grow in their practice. Yoga has taught me so much already, and I look forward to all the lessons that are in store for me."
