A competitive gymnast growing up, fitness has always been an important dimension of Caitlin's life. At 16 she suffered a spinal injury while snowboarding that ended her gymnastics career. When she was introduced to Hatha yoga, her life began to transform in every area. Upon completion her first class, the resounding feeling of accomplishment, grounding, vitality, and rejuvenation that she was experiencing was unlike anything she had felt with any other fitness regimen. From that day on, her yoga practice has provided her with a strong foundation for continuous physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual growth. She has been inspired to share yoga with her community since.
Caitlin's practice shifted from predominantly Hatha style to Power Vinyasa when she fell in love with the Baptiste Methodology. She completed Power Yoga Teacher Training through the Baptiste Institute in 2015. In her teaching, she encourages students to build resilience and strengthen their self-efficacy in a safe, fun, and challenging environment.
She is currently studying Health Psychology with a focus on Public Health at Bastyr University in Kenmore, WA. Academically she aspires to combine her love of Psychology and Public Health with her passion for yoga, and is working to incorporate yoga as a complementary healing modality in mental health treatment facilities.
