About

carrie wren, yoga, life coachHi! My name is Carrie.
I am a life coach, yoga educator, facilitator of life-affirming yoga retreats + teacher trainings, travel junkie, and adventurer seeker. I am committed to Transformation, Empowerment, and Impact: for myself, for my clients, and for the world.

Here are a few of my creds:
 Life Coach, Accomplishment Coaching  Master of Social Work, University of North Carolina at Charlotte  Licensed Clinical Social Worker (currently non-practicing)  Experienced Registered Yoga Teacher (ERYT-500), Wilmington Yoga Center  Certified Advanced Thai Yoga Therapy Practitioner, DeonThai School of Thai Yoga Massage  Co-Founder and Co-Director of Teacher Trainings + Retreats, Bella Vita Yoga

I’m often asked this question: How did you start teaching yoga?
To make a long story short: it all started with my own experience as a yoga student and clinical social worker. I found that I was able to calm my mind, feel better in and about my body, and experience greater ease and contentment in my life. As a clinical social worker {i.e. therapist}, I desired to help my clients experience those same types of benefits in a way beyond the scope of traditional psychotherapy. So when I enrolled in Yoga Teacher Training in 2009, it was with the intention of learning how to share techniques with my therapy clients that would offer them tangible results to help them feel better mentally and physically. Little did I know that I would feel the instinctual pull to teach yoga right away. Upon transitioning from a decade-long career of facilitating healing in a traditional therapy setting to supporting clients in feeling greater freedom and ease in their minds and bodies through 1:1 Yoga + Thai Yoga Therapy, and later co-creating a Yoga Teacher Training to educate prospective teachers, I stumbled quite accidentally into Life Coaching. I found coaching to be one of the most powerful and transformative experiences of my life. Again, the call to offer a deeper, more thorough level of service to my clients and community beckoned, and I enrolled in a metamorphic Life Coach training. Now, as Coach, I have the privilege of collaborating with my clients to create life-altering, sustaining change in their lives.

Now, enough about me; Let’s talk about YOU.
While on the surface, my client roster may seem diverse {musicians, doctors, graphic artists, tattoo artists, writers, publishers, producers, moms, entrepreneurs, lawyers, therapists, and fellow yoga teachers, just to name a few}, they all have a few things in common. Maybe some of them sound like you:

 Do you desire to finally take time to replenish your mind, body and spirit and practice taking excellent care of yourself?

 Do you hope to learn practical techniques to help you manage stress, relax, energize, or simply feel better in your body?

 Do you wish you could connect with an experienced, compassionate teacher or coach who “gets” you and is dedicated to supporting you in meeting your goals?

 Do you crave change but aren’t quite sure where to start?

 Do you recognize that true change takes commitment, rather a “quick fix?”

 Do you suspect that there is so much more to an authentic, fulfilling life than you are currently experiencing?

 Do you sense that it’s possible to not only enjoy, but to RELISH life, without taking it {or yourself} too seriously?

 Do you long for mental + physical well-being, more calm + balance, greater ease, and an abundance of gratitude?
