Elizabeth was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky. She was involved with sports from a young age. She played field hockey and ran track in high school and then continued in college to play Varsity field hockey for Rhodes College all 4 years, a captain for 2. Memphis is where she began her yoga journey with her 1st Bikram class in February of 2005 and was hooked! Elizabeth loved the heat and the fact that it was an intense cardio workout, all while practicing yoga. After moving back to Louisville in 2007, Elizabeth continued her Bikram practice. She attributes her love and knowledge of yoga to all the incredible teachers and dedicated practitioners she has encountered over the years. Her most memorable and humbling yoga experience thus far has been competing in the USA Yoga regional and national competition, AKA the Bishnu Ghosh cup. Elizabeth placed 1st in Kentucky in 2014 and went on to represent her state at Nationals later that year placing 30th in the nation. An incredible experience! Above all, her biggest claims to fame are her 2 children, Cooper and George, and her husband Big George. Elizabeth loves being a mom and watching her children grow each day.
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.
