Born in California, Carla moved around as a Navy brat. She landed in the Pacific Northwest at age 10 and has called it home ever since. Now, she is a solo mom raising an amazing teenage boy who makes her smile just for being part of her world. Her favorite cuddle partner is her beagle, Rocco the Dog, and her favorite kind of high is laughing until tears run down her face.
Carla was a business banker for over 10 years before going back to school and opening her own yoga studio in 2012, trading in nylons and heels for stretchy pants and mala beads.
Her most memorable teaching moment: Assisting James Fox from the Prison Yoga Project in a yoga class at San Quentin prison with 20 military vets serving life sentences.
