CARLY GRACE

Founder and director of Thunderbolt Power Yoga®

Carly grew up in Atlanta and attended The Westminster Schools and Virginia Tech, where she graduated Summa Cum Laude.

During college, she began practicing yoga to escape her intense cheerleading training; a desire to find more purposeful friendships and cultivate a greater well-being kept her coming back. After a lifetime of perfection-based sports, yoga was the first thing Carly practiced where a perfect-ten mentality wasn’t required, and she delighted in yoga’s celebration of imperfection.

At only 24, she opened Thunderbolt as a community-based studio where instructors practice with each other, students make friends, and yogis count on clean spaces and familiar faces.

As a YA 200 E-RYT, Carly’s studied and practiced with influencers and teachers across the country. In addition to teaching, she leads Carly Grace Power Yoga RYS Trainings, and generates content for her lifestyle/wellness blog, carlygraceyoga.com.

When teaching, she encourages people to move like themselves, helps students be audaciously playful in their practices and lives, and hopes to inspire the “be for one another” mentality that shapes her business.
