Carlie Bae LMP, RYT (License MA00022371)
The seeds for Carlie’s passion for health were planted as a child growing up on a small farm in Fall City, Washington. No matter how many sports she tried, Carlie was never a natural athlete. She suffered from injury on the slopes, on the field, and in day to day activity. It was not until she found yoga that fitness became accessible. This was the key to unlocking a navigable path on her personal quest for balance in all parts of life.
She achieved a Bachelor of Science degree in Nutrition from Bastyr University where she also discovered the wonder of physical medicine. In partnership with Bastyr she received her certification to practice massage from Brenneke School of Massage in 2005, and has continued to study different techniques ever since. Modalities she has studied and integrated into her practice include myofascial release, Thai massage, Lomi Lomi, pregnancy, therapeutic cupping, and manual ligament therapy. She began sharing her approaches to yoga for health and fitness in private and group settings in 2012.
In her free time she loves to play with really heavy weights, snowboard, hike,garden, cook and spend time with her beautiful family and menagerie of urban farm animals.
Carlie specializes in myofascial release, Thai massage, Lomi Lomi, pregnancy, therapeutic cupping, and manual ligament therapy.
