I'm Carley! I am a Wife, Mother, Yoga Instructor and creator of Yoga Flora.
I began practicing yoga in 2007, as a means to diversify my fitness routine. Initially practicing for physical transformation, I began to benefit from pranayama, meditation and other traditional yoga methods, both on and off the mat. Yoga naturally became a social culture and complete way of life.
Today, with over 400 hours of training in styles of Hatha, Vinyasa and Prenatal, I balance teaching yoga with family life as a Wife and Stay-at-Home Mom for my 1-year-old Daughter, Irisa.
As my passion for yoga grows, so does my desire to connect and share with others along the yogic path. Thus, I created Yoga Flora; My online alias which metaphorically represents the analogy between the workings of nature and those of a yoga practice.
Yoga is about connecting to our true, inner nature by planting the seed of intention, tending to our body like a garden and weeding the distractions of the mind. It's hard work, but so rewarding to harvest the benefits of strength, flexibility, mindfulness, peace and compassion.
I invite you to check out the Yoga page for my teaching schedule in the Ottawa area.
The Flora page is where you will find content that I create to share with you through videos and blogs.
You can also follow me on social media for my latest updates and inspiration.
I would love to connect with you!
