TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR STUDENTS
I most enjoyed the opportunity to connect with other women. I enjoyed the permission to show up as any and all versions of myself. The pride I feel for myself in completing something I didn’t “have to” is so small compared to the pride I feel for knowing these incredible people whose lives just so happened to overlap with mine.
I am so grateful to have taken this course when I did. It’s true that the right people will be there at the right time! I had so much in common with every other participant in this course, and immediately felt at home. I loved that this training was about so much more than teaching an hour of yoga poses. We built community, understanding, and healed old wounds. If only for the therapy this course provided, it was WELL worth it. Knowing I have skills to take this joy to others is a wonderful feeling.
We have built such a strong community over the past 10 weeks. It is amazing how we are now comfortable in the way we can support each other and the way this group can be sort of our support system in our continued yoga journey, whether we move on to be teachers, or just deepen our personal practice. I know I will always have this experience to think back on and realize the growth we have had as a group and as individuals.
It was a warm and welcoming space to grow. Not only is the instructor warm and loving, she FULL of knowledge. Not just behind the yoga practice but the philosophy behind yoga practice. I was allowed to grow at my own pace without judgment. There is plenty of time for practicing poses while you further investigate your practice during in class sessions. It was the right amount of time to build your confidence that was often filled with warm tea, laughter, friendships and tears as we meditated and practiced breath work. It's a perfect place to grow. Caitlin guided us to be our very best.
Really, truly from the bottom of my heart, I am forever grateful to have taken this journey with some of the brightest and shiniest people I have ever met. Every moment in this class felt special and well thought out. Every detail is handled with care and it is incredibly clear that this beyond a job, but a passion for life and spirit. I am honored to be a part of this magical community of Yogis because of this class. Thank you again Caitlin.
Caitlin created such an amazing space for us. Yoga is a physical, mental, spiritual, and beautiful practice. She taught us to blend all three to make our practice strong on and off the mat. I am not the most vulnerable person and I felt supported in sharing experiences . Although my practice with runners will likely be a physical practice, I will be happy to share a whole practice with all my students.
I loved Caitlin’s deep embodiment of the teaching that was presented. It was evident that there was a lot of care and passion that went into creating this course and I loved every juicy drop of the learning along the way. I find myself feeling quite resourced to go out in my world and teach because I have a much greater understanding of not just Asana, but the overall foundation of Yoga.
"The way Caitlin just opened her home and heart to us! She made it such a fun and personal experience that has so many memories with inside jokes. It was such a safe space and Caitlin made it easy for all of us to be open and honest about everything, and it was amazing! I’m going to miss it!!
"Caitlin is attentive, professional, and knows her stuff. She makes you feel at ease and as though she is really listening to you and takes the time to interact. Highly recommended!"
"I'm so glad I found Caitlin. She is amazing! She is very professional and determined. By way of Yoga I got to meet this wonderful human being. She teaches at our speed without pushing much while also encouraging to get better and establish a good foundation. I would highly recommend Caitlin to anyone who is a beginner or a pro."
"I love how Caitlin
brought a bunch of women together from different backgrounds and made us all feel like sisters. I
especially love how much I’ve changed in a good way because of this program."
"I love that this course surprised me. We covered material that was totally new to me
and surprisingly impactful and meaningful to my everyday life. I wasn’t expecting to like or get so
much out of the humanities section, but think that’s one of my biggest areas of learning. Every day I
felt my skills, knowledge, and confidence growing and my inspiration and anticipation was, too.
"Caitlin provides a very welcoming, ready-to-learn environment. It has all been a great experience."
"I am so proud and excited to spread the knowlegde I've learned! I'm grateful for this opportunity and for this school."
"Caitlin is very easy to talk to and a wonderful listener. Her studio has a great energy to it!
"Caitlin is warm, genuine, and generous. Her teaching is concise and well-delivered. The class is very relevant and easy to understand."
