Kaitie has been in love with movement her whole life, beginning with dance; training in ballet, modern, jazz, and tap. To share the benefits of moving the body with others, and to deepen her knowledge of anatomy and alignment, she dove into 900 hours of Yoga Training through a Advanced Yoga Teacher Training, Yin Yoga Course, and Yoga Therapy Training. From a movement practice came the balance of stillness within yoga, and the healing capabilities possible through deepened release within the body, mind, and nervous system. Her practice deepened and grounded here; in the importance of balancing internal layers through subtly reflecting inward. Continually aiming to assist others in connecting deeper with themselves to live more authentically and expressively in their lives and individual yoga journey, she uses her skills in mindfulness, myofascial release, alignment corrections, breath work, resiliency for chronic stress or pain, and a trauma sensitive approach. She hopes to instil practices that have helped herself, and others, find greater ease, lightness and resiliency. She can offer a therapeutic approach, and private sessions have the ability to find the root cause of a personal issue, both physical and emotional, to create unique practices for greater range of motion, ease, quality of life, and resiliency going forward. We work together to playfully explore all of the layers of the self with intention to intertwine the body and mind to lay the foundations of unique balance. When she's not teaching or practicing yoga, Kaitie spends her time using her Herbal Immersion Training to create herbal medicines, aromatherapy concoctions, and tend her garden. You can find her spending time with nature, exploring, rock hunting and foraging. She also loves good food, reading, writing and being around friends, family, and of course her Chaya cat.
