It is with much sadness that I share that a member of our Mind Body Flow Yoga family and team of teachers, is departing from the Mind Body Flow Yoga teaching team – our very dear and beloved, Carly Brown.
I often tell the story of how Carly came to start teaching at Mind Body Flow Yoga – I’ll never forget this beautiful, petite woman, with these pretty brown eyes, coming up to me at the end of class one day, back in 2017, and saying, “Hi, I’m Carly. I teach yoga and I would love the opportunity to tell you a bit more about myself sometime.” She smiled the biggest, brightest smile at me and handed me her business card. I said something along the lines of, “Sure – I’m sure we can set something up and chat sometime.”
About a week later, I received an email from Carly, where she was following up in hopes that we could chat. It was then that I was really intrigued, because it became clear to me that Carly was really pursuing the opportunity to chat with me and I have a high level of respect for someone who sees something they want and really goes after it and keeps “knocking at the door” (so to speak), in pursuit of what they want. The time came where Carly and I finally sat down and had that chat that Carly had pursued with such great intention, and the rest is history. I knew I had to have her on my team. And there’s no doubt in my mind that the same wonderful impression that I was left with after our first chat, is the same wonderful impact and impression Carly has made on the organization that is so very fortunate to have her joining their team.
Carly started teaching at Mind Body Flow Yoga in July of 2017 and has had an incredible journey – one that all began with her stepping outside of her comfort zone – not only in approaching me about teaching at MBFY, but also in her having the courage to ultimately take this leap of faith with her career. While it is very bittersweet for me to have Carly leave MBFY’s team, I am so very proud of her and so very happy and excited for her! She is embodying so beautifully what our yoga practice teaches us by spreading her wings and flying into this incredible opportunity – courage, trust, faith, and surrender. I feel blessed to call Carly my friend and to have witnessed her incredible growth in these past couple years.
Carly will continue to serve at MBFY, as a substitute instructor – subbing on occasion, when her schedule permits. Carly loves MBFY very much and will continue to practice at the studio as her schedule permits as well.
Carly’s last scheduled class taught at Mind Body Flow Yoga will be the 9:30 AM – 10:45 AM Open Flow class, on Monday, April 22nd. Please join her, if you’re able, and wish her well in her new journey ahead.
Carly, we are truly going to miss you at Mind Body Flow Yoga. You will always be a part of our MBFY family and have a yoga home with us. We thank you for your contribution, dedication, and for inspiring us all. Your light, love, inspiration, infectious smile, and encouragement will be in our hearts always, powerful pixie!
Many blessings to you always, and abundant light and joy in the new and exciting journey that lies ahead!
