The seeds Carly sowed with her young students at Holly Hill Organic Farm summer camp many years ago grew into not just vegetables but her own enduring interest in creating supportive learning environments. This interest was reinforced when she wrote a thesis on the academic motivation of Grade 3-6 students, taught Spanish to Grade 1- 2 students, and immersed herself in the Montessori method while working at the Inly School for two years.  At Inly she taught both weekly yoga classes to preschoolers and creatively integrated yoga into the school day. Her work in the classroom was informed by the following three trainings: Calm Classroom, Positive Discipline,  and “Yoga and Mindfulness in the Classroom: Tools to Improve Self-Regulation, Learning and Classroom Climate”.  In addition to teaching yoga at the Inly School, she also taught yoga as a for-credit college course for 3 semesters.
