+ creative nomad
Hi, I'm Carman and I use she/her pronouns. I'm a proud second-generation Chinese-Canadian movement facilitator + as my partner likes to describe me, a creative nomad based in Toronto, Canada.
My approach to movement + facilitation weaves together 20+ years of classical + contemporary dance education training, certifications in, and a commitment to continued unlearning/learning in: mat + reformer Pilates, pre/post-natal, vinyasa yoga, yin yoga and restorative yoga. I offer an informed practice that prioritizes longevity, sustainability, mindful connection, sensational movement and intentional rest. Expect to be grounded by a supportive foundation with agency to colour outside the lines through guided self-exploration.
You can move with me at various studio locations throughout the city such as Good Space (Parkdale) and Have A Nice Day Pilates (Corktown) as well as on a few virtual on-demand platforms like Good Space ~ Any Place and Planet Nice Day. I also offer 1:1 movement sessions online or at my home-studio (see below) and facilitate at local workshops + events with like-minded brands.
Beyond movement, I am also a self-taught + peer-mentored photographer, video editor, digital designer + creative writer. To see some of my most recent works, head over to my Portfolio page.
