For over 10 years, Carla was a certified yoga teacher but felt there was something missing from her understanding of how the body moves & functions. This thirst for knowledge led her to Katy Bowman and Restorative Exercise. She first became a Healthy Foot Practitioner in 2012 then earned certification as a Restorative Exercise Specialist in 2014 through Nutritious Movement™, a science-based education facility dedicated to optimizing the long term health of the human machine through proper understanding of how postural habits and alignment affect organ and system function. Under the tutelage of Katy Bowman, M.S., along with a generously supportive group of fellow students, she continues to expand her education studying biomechanics. Carla is also a Licensed Massage Therapist, Lamaze® Certified Childbirth Educator, owner of Sanctum in Fredericksburg, and single mother of four beautiful children.
