ABOUT ME

Hello

I'm Caitlin.

I took my first yoga class in 2009 as a form of physical therapy to help recover from an injury. But I quickly realized there was much more to yoga than just the physical benefits. I was instantly drawn in by the connection between mind and body and how yoga led me to be more in tune with myself and the world around me.

 

With a consistent practice of more than 10 years, I am dedicated to living yoga on and off the mat, and to sharing my knowledge and passion for yoga with those around me. 

My teaching style focuses on the connection between movement, alignment and breath in order to move the body and find stillness in the mind. I believe yoga teaches us how to build strength and resilience on the mat which we can carry with us into our everyday lives. I encourage students to find stillness and softness even in challenging moments.

 

Yoga is a process of self discovery and inquiry. It teaches you how to live and be in your own body and mind. So most importantly, I encourage you to tune into yourself, to listen to your own body, and find what works best for you.

MY TEACHING BACKGROUND

I am a certified 500 hour Registered Yoga Teacher with Yoga Alliance.

In 2017, I completed my initial 200 hour teacher training at Centered Yoga, Samahita, in Thailand with Paul Dallaghan and Arielle Nash.

From there, I began to teach yoga in Tanzania and later in Ethiopia where I was living and working, and taught to both the expat and local community. In Ethiopia, I started my own group where I taught weekly group classes, worked with numerous private clients, and organized and led weekend retreats. 

I returned to Samahita in 2019 to advance my knowledge through a 100 hour course on 'The Art of Adjustment and Science of Sequencing'. I also continued to study through online courses led by Jason Crandall and Tiffany Cruikshank to name a few.

 

In 2022, I completed my 300 hour advanced teacher training with Jason Crandell at TriYoga in London.

My teaching has been influenced by my teachers Paul Dallaghan, Arielle Nash, and Jason Crandell as well as Stephanie Snyder, Annie Carpenter, Hilary Brown, Jessica Stickler, Hari-kirtana das, and Sri O.P. Tiwari. 

I am constantly inspired to keep learning, growing, adapting, and refining, so I can best serve my students along their path of yoga and self-discovery.

I have an (almost) daily personal practice which I believe is important to maintain so I can teach from what I know, as I continue to grow and explore both on the mat and out in the world.
