Carrie Irwin

Instructor - All Level Flow, Yoga Core, Yang/Yin
200 hr RYT

Carrie found hot yoga when she was seeking relief from chronic low back and sciatic nerve pain.  It did the trick!  With a regular practice she found amazing relief from her pain and made incredible gains in core strength, along with gaining mental focus and an enhanced ability to concentrate both on and off her mat. As her journey continued to vinyasa classes, she was amazed to find that yoga helped with symptoms of other chronic health issues and she soon expanded her practice to other types of hot yoga classes  She fell even more in love with yoga, both the physical challenges and flowing poses together, which allowed her an emotional and spiritual release she has come to cherish.  Carrie completed her 230 hour teacher training through Asheville Yoga Center in June of 2016 and immediately began seeking opportunities to teach and share her passion for yoga with others.  She is a nurturer by nature and her experiences and natural disposition have readied her to lead, teach and care for her students utilizing the transformational power of yoga.  During her free time she loves spending time with her husband, reading and hiking. Carrie is the proud mother of two adult daughters and an adult stepson. 

A fun and challenging class that combines a powerful flow with core strengthening. You will move and feel from the center of your body learning to engage the core more deeply and intentionally in all postures. A rigorous class with time spent holding poses while building strength, focus, self awareness and confidence. All levels welcome!
