Carrie Few

Carrie began practicing yoga 13 years ago as a recommendation from her rheumatologist. After a severe arthritis flare up that rendered her nearly wheelchair bound she made a major life change; left her government job and attended a month long yoga teacher training immersion at the Konalani Ashram in Kona, HI. She started this journey to first heal herself and was inspired to learn that yoga provided her with a gentle consistent means of healing her mind & body.

Teaching is her passion and she specializes in assisting individuals living with pain, both emotional and physical. After teaching successfully in Kamloops for 3 years she relocated to Penticton and has been assisting people at her space on Government Street, Penticton Yoga Therapy for the past 2 years.
