Carey became interested in classical yoga after reading Dr. Butera's work and realizing that they both had attended the California Institute of Integral Studies for their doctoral degrees. Carey is a registered nurse and reiki master, and one of her main motivators for becoming certified as a yoga instructor was to be able to teach yoga and healing with her nursing students at University of Maine at Augusta. Carey has designed a yoga curriculum for BSN nursing students that includes weekly experiences with classical yoga and meditation, and academic work for the course is completed online. Carey is striving to work as a consultant to bring yoga as a healing therapy and self-care modality into more schools of nursing and healthcare settings.
