Carly Norwood (formerly Hayden) strives to create space for connection, celebration, introspection, and exploration in everyday life, and she brings that spirit into her joyful and creative yoga classes. She first fell in love with yoga at the age of 15 and heard the call to become a yoga teacher at 17. That passion became a career as a Yoga Alliance E-RYT (Experienced Yoga Teacher), Continuing Education Provider, Stand Up Paddleboard Yoga Instructor, and the creator of the PSUPA SUP Yoga Teacher Training Program.

To Carly, yoga is not about striving for a perfect pose. Its about loving your body enough to care for it, tune into its messages, and be kind to yourself through the process. Off the mat, Carly loves spending time with her two daughters, getting into nature, seeking new experiences, and losing herself in a good book.
