Carolyn Smith is an licensed massage therapist, certified yoga therapist and teacher with a passion for helping people improve their health, well-being, and functional mobility through therapeutic massage and yoga. 


Carolyn came to yoga and massage after almost 20 years in corporate finance. Over a decade of practicing and teaching yoga she developed a deep interest in understanding the basis of good biomechanics, functional movement, and the body's innate capacity for healing. 

She began studying Body Balance Yoga Therapy® with Jenny Otto in 2012 and after completing over 200 hours of clinical work and was certified as a Yoga Therapist by the International Association of Yoga Therapists in early 2017. Carolyn's training as a yoga therapist led to her interest in massage as both are a perfect compliment in creating the conditions necessary for the reduction of pain, improved movement in the body, and deep healing.

Carolyn studied Therapeutic Massage at Anne Arundel Community College becoming a Licensed Massage Therapist also in 2017. She is experienced in Swedish, deep tissue, and myofascial release techniques and will often incorporate other modalities for deep relaxation, such as yogic breathing or calming essential oils into massage sessions.

Carolyn is a member of the American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA), International Association of Yoga Therapists (IAYT), and Yoga Alliance (YA). In addition to her massage and yoga certifications, she holds a BA in Accounting and a MBA in Financial Management.

Carolyn took the time to listen to me and what I needed. Her massage was personalized and focused on the areas that were troublesome. I will book with her again.

Carolyn listened well to my injury history, and displayed real interest in rooting out my challenges to tailor the treatment to best improve my functionality and comfort. I'll be back soon.

Carolyn is very nice. She has strong hands and delivered a good DT massage. She can work on her flow to ensure one portion of the massage flows well with the next.
