meet co-creator of breathe,

Hi, I'm Carrie

I’m a starseed, empath, yoga teacher, alignment coach, workplace mindfulness facilitator, and co-creator of breathe. 

 

While pursuing formal education in Psychology and Human Resources Management, I coached gymnastics and worked countless hours in the service industry, mainly serving and bartending. I began my professional career working with an educational travel company, and after 3 years I switched industries and spent 7 years with a reputable investment management firm. Throughout my career, I held many positions of leadership, and my roles were mainly focused in the realm of HR. 

I was highly successful, but my heart knew there was something more meant for me than climbing the corporate ladder. In early 2017, I took a leave of absence to complete a yoga teacher training program in Nicaragua. Upon my return to Canada, I began teaching weekly yoga classes to my colleagues, and absolutely fell in love with creating and maintaining a safe space for people to disconnect from the stresses of every day life. I am passionate about helping others establish a deeper connection to themselves through conscious breathing and mindful movement.

Yoga was just the beginning of discovering the body's miraculous ability to heal itself. In 2020, I began training in energy healing techniques. I am certified as a Reiki 2 Practitioner, and a Quantum Touch Level 1 Healer. I completed a Spiritual Mentorship program, and continue to deepen my knowledge of spiritual and holistic healing such as breathwork, meditation, energetic alignment, and various embodiment practices.

 

In May 2021, I said goodbye to the life of an employee, and transitioned into spiritual entrepreneurship. I am passionate about maintaining a healthy and balanced life, mentally, physically, and emotionally - and know that my purpose is to help others do the same.

A bit more about me...

For much of my life, I suppressed my spirituality and lived my life according to the expectations of others. I was raised to be a “good girl” in a society and religious community where the topic of sex was considered taboo, and sexual education was definitely lacking. So, when I entered puberty and became curious of my own sexuality, feelings of guilt, shame, and confusion were prevalent. 

I started experimenting with drugs and alcohol before I was even a teenager. By the time I was in high school, I was regularly binge drinking and was desperate for attention from the opposite sex. Impaired judgment and intoxication led me to various vulnerable situations with male peers who were only interested in one thing. I often confused sexual attraction for romantic interest or the genuine connection I was longing for. But before I knew it, I was being called a “slut” in the hallways and cafeteria. Shame and diminished self-worth triggered the onset of disordered eating - something I quietly battled for nearly two decades.

As I entered adulthood, I developed a pattern of attracting partners who were controlling and emotionally abusive. I experienced various health issues and could never find a solution. Doctors and specialists prescribed remedies and treatments that would give me short-term relief at best. I was completely disconnected from myself, and I eventually hit an emotional and physical rock bottom.

"As a highly sensitive and intuitive woman, my passion and purpose is to help others establish a deeper connection with themselves. I believe that the majority (if not all) of our issues in life are the result of being disconnected - from ourselves, from each other, and from the universe at large."

Somehow the universe guided me to sign up for an intro pass at a nearby yoga studio, and it was the best thing I ever did. Developing a routine of regularly taking time to connect with myself and my breath was exactly what I needed. I finally found relief from my most severe symptoms.

 

This is when my spiritual awakening began, as I had discovered the inter-connectedness of the body, mind, and soul. I dove deep into the realm of spirituality and holistic healing, and eventually developed an understanding of my trauma and the effect it had on my subconscious patterning. I believe that the path to healing is a lifelong journey, and I now see my past experiences as lessons and initiations into a greater expression of my highest self.

 

My robust life experience and my formal training in yoga, energy healing, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and other spiritual and holistic modalities have helped shape the services that I provide to my clients. My personal mission is to help others align with their highest potential.

I look forward to working with you and witnessing you become your best self!

With love and gratitude, Marisa & Carrie (7)_edited.png
