Consciousness, Psychedelics and Art
A desire to nurture a deeper connection with body and mind drew Carlie to her mat in 2008 and since then she has been humbled by the depth of this practice and its profound influence on the way we relate to the world around us. “Yoga has unfolded its petals and become a great love of my life, inspiring self exploration, discipline and compassion.” Carlie completed her teacher training under the exceptional guidance of Sarah Trelease at Yoga Bhoga in 2012. She is passionate about the many layers of this practice and students who attend her classes are encouraged to explore the physical body while connecting deeply to breath and lightness of mind. Influenced by a strong Vinyasa and Hatha practice, Carlie enjoys challenging her students but recognizes that sometimes the greatest challenge is simply to sit with ourselves in stillness and admiration. Her teaching allows her to share and inspire with students of all levels, the compassion, humility, and infinite potential of our bodies, minds and spirit through devoted practice. The deep seeded belief that food is love drew Carlie into the kitchen and to the study of nutritional healing through the choices we feed our bodies. She has been cooking for individual clients, yoga retreats and large scale events for several years. “I love to be the bearer of a precious experience. I love to create the space, nurture the energy, encourage self love and self care, all while making bodies and bellies happy. It is the work of my soul and a delight to share with all of you.”
I am a Conscious Hip Hop Musician and a Poetic Priestess of Peace. I live in Unity Consciousness and have devoted my life to being a peaceful warrior for Love, Truth, Beauty, Goodness and Freedom for All. Through the sacred creation and celebration of the harmonics of poetry, music and dance, we can COSMICALLY CONNECT with each other and LINK our awareness and consciousness for the purpose of creating PEACE within, PEACE together and PEACE on our planet.
Both of my albums, 'Muzoetry: Conscious Musical Poetry," and 'When in Om' are extremely danceable discs with stellar poetry and bodacious beats. The words will electrify your inner-song and the melodies will have you singing along!
When I play live, I overlay my voice with ORIGINAL musical compositions that incorporate a synergy of vocals, beats and various instruments such as the tablas, digeridoo, African drums, hip-hop beats, nature sounds, and many more!
I have performed at Envision Festival, Arise Festival, UnifyFest, Burning Man, Raw Living Expo, Sister Winds Festival, The International New Age Trade Show, Moon Flower Herbal Fest, The Matriarch Gathering, Art Spirit Now, The Mercury Cafe, The Tonic Herban Lounge, Ling Elixirs, Shine Restaurant & Gathering Place, Naropa University, The Psychedelic Symposium at Naropa University and Brigitte Mars' Sacred Salons.
