About Carrington

Over the last 20+ years, Carrington’s yoga journey has been a diverse one. Through the exploration of Bikram, Ashtanga, Iyengar, Kundalini, Vinyasa and everything in between, she realized that yoga was much bigger than just the physical endeavor of asana. But rather it was a way to dive in to the very core of self, which is the place of spirit, the place of connection, the place of the divine.

Carrington is registered with the Yoga Alliance as an E-RYT 500, having gratefully attained her RYT200 teaching certification in 2004 and her RYT500 in 2010. Her classes are a canvas of movement, breath, prayer, humor and stories intertwined with spirit, sweat and magic. Her passion both on and off the mat is helping others in finding their voice and owning their power and teaches many classes and workshops to that end.


May I be used for the greater good. May I be grateful, humble and courageous in equal measure.
— Carrington, Yoga Off East Instructor

Q + A

I am happiest…

Too hard to pick just one thing. Traveling abroad. Front row at a Coldplay concert. Sitting with my husband watching my son hit a home run. Floating in my pool. Planning magic. Summer nights with friends.  

My favorite view…

anything with a mountain in it. 

Morning ritual…

Turn off my alarm and say a prayer: “May I be used for the greater good. May I be grateful, humble and courageous in equal measure.”  

One activity you do everyday without fail…

smile. 

A good day is…

when I get to move (yoga, work out, dance, walk my dogs), see friends, plan some magic, eat dinner with my family, plan more magic and get to bed at a decent hour. 

Last thing you do at night…

say thank you. 

What 3 things are vital to your day…

prayer, gratitude, lipstick. 

Your most overused phrase…

"one more breath."

Go-to websites…

DailyMail, Well&Good, Daily Beast, Refinery29, GOOP

Most used emoji…

peace, heart, prayer hands, lightning bolt

How do you unwind…

My hope is that I don’t get wound up to need unwinding.  

What was your dream job as a child…

Through the years it went from trash truck driver, dancer, actress, doctor. 

Who is your greatest mentor…

I feel so blessed to be surrounded by so many amazing women who I consider mentors as well as friends.  

What one meeting changed your life…

So many sliding door moments. Meeting Seane Corn, my teacher, 11 years ago. Meeting Matt Whitley on the corner of Fayetteville and Hargett selling Happy + Hale juice out of a cart. Too many good ones to have a favorite. 

Biggest risk that has paid off…

Every time I have moved it has felt like a risk. OK → CO → NC. Each one of those risks paid off big time, leading me closer and closer to my purpose. 

Failure is…

just as important as success.

Success is…

best when shared. 

Best piece of advice…

Look people in the eye when you speak.
