Carly Smith, Founder & Owner
Yoga and Meditation Teacher
specializing in yoga for brain trauma and mental wellness
Carly's passion for yoga is one of which was gratefully stumbled upon. She got into yoga as means to overcome anxiety, worry and stress. She quickly started to benefit from the unfoldings and transformations that it was bringing into her life. It not only improved her physical strength but more so helped her find inner peace and self awareness. Yoga has helped her overcome obstacles and boundaries that she never thought possible.
Carly has been teaching yoga for the past 9 years after completing her 500 hour yoga teacher training under the guidance of Shasta Townsend, Director of Balanced Life Yoga. Through her passion of nature and being outdoors, she went on to complete her Stand Up Paddle Board Yoga training in San Diego, with Gillian Gibree from Paddle into Fitness in 2014. She has also completed continuing education courses in Restorative Yoga, Yoga Tune Up®, Yoga for Anxiety Relief, Pre-natal, Chair Yoga and Meditation Specialist.
Carly is currently registered with the Yoga Alliance as a RYT-500. She is also certified with Canadian Red Cross in Psychological First Aid, First Aid and CPR-C.
In addition, being someone who has endured a TBI and concussions, she has taken a strong interest and recently shifted her focus to the healing and therapy of individuals who have suffered traumatic brain injuries and concussions. She is eager to bring this into the TBI community after recently completing and receiving her certification from the Love your Brain Foundation in 2020.
She is a strong mental health advocate who humbly shares her own personal experiences and healing. Through both, Carly's personal journey and education, Carly has the passion and tools to help assist others in leading a more balanced, fulfilling, healthy lifestyle.
Carly is currently in the process of becoming a Health & Wellness Coach which she is excited to complete in 2021.
