A former division 1 college swimmer, Carmen thought yoga was too slow and not a high cardio workout like she thought she needed. Upon a quick move to Los Angeles, she found the TV show she was employed with encouraged yoga during working hours. Needing to get away from her desk, she went with a few buddies and was not immediately hooked. But with persistence, she began to have the willingness to be patient and explore her body through movement and breathe. And now she is HOOKED!! She completed her YTT with Carolina Yoga in 2020 and can't wait to spread the joy of the practice with others!
