Originally from Indiana, Carson was introduced to yoga in high school to stretch and cross train for other types of fitness. It wasn’t until the pressure of graduate school that Carson began to see yoga in a totally different light. She began to see how the practice of yoga helped her seek balance in other aspects of her life. As a self-proclaimed perfectionist, yoga has taught her a new way of responding and observing daily moments and obstacles through awareness of breath and finding patience for yourself. Carson has begun to truly understand what it means to be fully present.
Always an avid learner, Carson decided that 6 months out of graduate school was too long without a book and highlighter in hand. She began to dive deeper into her yoga practice and enroll in Sanctuary’s 200-hour teacher training program, which she completed in 2016. She loves how every time you step on the mat it brings a unique experience, something different to respond to. Carson believes you never stop learning new things, whether it’s a new pose, a new way to approach a situation, or a new transition on the mat or off.
In her time off the mat, Carson works with special needs children as a speech language pathologist and enjoys the Nashville music scene. She strongly believes that the best thing you can teach is kindness.
