Carly's Picks: 5 Things I'm Loving Right Now

Click here to see February’s list from last month, and please let me know what you’re loving in the comments - I can’t wait to read them all. Here’s a list of things I’m loving this March.

Health-Ade Kombucha

Kombucha is sweeping the country right now, and I think Health-Ade is the best brand out there. Health-Ade’s mission is “to inspire people to trust their mind, body and gut – so they’re happy and healthy!” They encourage people to “follow their gut” and drink their kombucha that is full of tummy-friendly nutrients!



A mother-daughter duo founded YogaPaws after years of practicing yoga on-the-go. Their gear allows people to enjoy non-slip practice anytime, anywhere—even without a mat!

Young Living Essential Oils

It would be impossible for me to explain how much I love these essential oils. Essential oils have been used for thousands of years, and Young Living has done an amazing job bringing this ancient tradition back to the forefront. We even use them at TPY! (Find out how you can get started with your own here.)



Lauren Moshi

I LOVE Lauren Moshi’s line of clothing. Each piece is like a piece of original art, and the t-shirts and sweatshirts are so soft. It’s all the comfort of regular “atheleisure” with a little extra flair. We also carry her line in my studio at Thunderbolt Power Yoga!


Exhale Spa

I always tell people I’m a blend of eastern and western medicine. I love Exhale’s Thai Yoga Massage, Myofascial Release and relaxing in their Hammam Room with cucumber towels and tea. Heaven.

Carly Grace Milyo

Born in New York City,  Carly Grace grew up in Atlanta and graduated from The Westminster Schools.  Carly received her Bachelor of Science in Human Development, and graduated Summa Cum Laude from Virginia Tech in 2012. During her college career, Carly began practicing yoga as an escape from her intense ACC Cheerleading training. The rigor and requirements Carly upheld as an ACC athlete combined with the social expectations and action packed schedule expected of an Alpha Phi left Carly depleted both physically and mentally.  Before Carly found yoga, she used running, partying with friends, and restricting her diet to maintain a sense of control in her life. It was Carly's true desire to find more purposeful and authentic friendships and to invest her time in cultivating her greater well-being and spirituality that lead her to yoga. 

The creativity and physical challenge of yoga captivated and inspired Carly. Yoga was the first thing Carly practiced where the perfect-ten mentality was not required; in fact, perfection is the antithesis of yoga principles.  After hanging up her poms poms and retiring from her ACC Cheerleading career, Carly quickly found herself  invested in the In Balance Yoga Community in Blacksburg, VA.  With encouragement and affirmation from Studio Owner, Becky Crigger, Carly set out for New York City to train with Dana Trixie Flynn at Laughing Lotus Love Skool.

Yoga Alliance 200 E-RYT, Carly has studied and practiced with many influencers and teachers all over the United States.  Carly currently teaches Thunderbolt Power Yoga®;  a powerful alignment based vinyasa flow inspired by some of her greatest influencers including, Dana Trixie Flynn and Baron Baptiste.  Carly infuses creative ideas and sequencing into her classes. Her purpose as a teacher is to inspire people to move like themselves. Carly is committed to helping students be audaciously playful in both their practice and in their lives. 

You can catch Carly Grace teaching at her studio Thunderbolt Power Yoga, at off-site events such as the infamous FIT Yoga Series with Carly Grace at W Atl Buckhead, at music festivals, corporate conferences, and more!  Be sure to look out for Carly's quarterly Boombox Power Yoga® Class offered alongside a live DJ, accompanied by her pink boombox, and enhanced with a 16 inch disco ball. 

In the mean time, you can follow her adventures on instagram (@yoga__barbie) or give her a wave when you see her drive by in her infamous pink jeep!
