Carolyn Maier likes to get lost. Lost in a good book, lost in the beauty of a sunset, or on a ranch with the smell of horses. She teaches therapeutic equine yoga and is certified with the Yoga Alliance as an RYT 200. She is certified in Parkinson Wellness Recovery (PWR!) and Reiki. Carolyn is also an artist, and was one of the creators of a featured art installation at the World Parkinson Congress entitled Forging Resilience: Capturing Moments: Living Life with Parkinson’s. One of her favorite mediums is photography, which she finds provides the perfect fusion between creative expression, healing, and documentation. She holds a BA from Boston College and an MPA from the University of Montana and is a graduate of Rocky Mountain School of Photography..
