Are you a square peg trying to fit into a round hole? Do you question why you find yourself trying to live up to society's standards? On this episode my guest, Kelley Carboni-Woods of I Am Infectiously Happy, dive into the non-conforming choices that projected her life in a whole new direction. Kelley also gives a great deal of insight on what mindful parenting looks like for her, and how yoga helped her stay connected with herself through life-changing moments.
Kelley is a yoga teacher, writer, small business owner and wellness advocate from Charlotte, NC. She was introduced to yoga through private classes as she was seeking another way to support her weight loss journey. Yoga was transformative in the way she lived her life, making her realize she wanted to make the practice accessible to all body types, ages and physical fitness levels. Kelley's main focus when teaching is to help students understand that asana is one small part of yoga, create an inclusive environment and give her students tools to navigate life with gratitude, self study and joy.
