A lifelong resident of the beaches Candice grew up surfing and swimming at the Beaches Aquatic Club and on the Fletcher High School swim team, lettering in diving. She has worked as a cardiology registered nurse for over 30 years and completed certification in cardiovascular nursing through the Cardiovascular Nursing Association.

Candice began practicing yoga in 2003 and received her 200 hour teaching certification under Deva Parnell at Discovery Yoga in Saint Augustine in 2011. She has studied with Doug Keller and also has certification through the Christina Phipps foundation to teach yoga to breast cancer survivors and their caregivers.

“I teach in the Kripalu style of hatha yoga which is a gentle practice with emphasis on linking breath with movement. This allows the mind to quiet and awareness to turn inward and can bring about a meditative state of deep relaxation. I also offer modifications for the yogi who wishes to take the poses deeper or make the postures more restorative. Each student is encouraged to explore all that yoga has to offer in an environment that is safe and nurturing. Yoga has changed my life both on and off the mat and I want to share what I have learned with others.”
