She came to yoga 12 years ago and since her retirement from physio in 2014, Carmel has had more time to practice and teach. In addition to yoga, Carmel loves spending time with her family, her husband and four kids. Carmel and her husband live in Halifax and they enjoy cycling throughout N.S. and beyond.

In May 2014, Carmel completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training at HY with Sherry Zak and Coeli Marsh. She has enjoyed being a part of the HY community ever since.
