Caitlin started practicing yoga under the promise of a friend for a burger and a beer in exchange for company in a class that was being hosted at a local lululemon store. In this class Caitlin learned her first arm balance and was hooked. She started attending weekly classes at a local studio and started to notice a change in herself both mentally and physically. She had found a new a rhythm to her life. A rhythm that allowed her to look at the world with a new perspective, find balance, and be present in each moment. This new found rhythm to life led her to pursue the 200 hour Fluid Yoga training at Stil Studio in Dedham, MA under the instruction of Kevan Gale. Caitlin’s initial intention behind taking the training was to deepen her own practice with the hopes of teaching one drop-in class weekly. The universe had other plans when not too long after her training was completed she found herself leaving her full-time job to pursue full-time teaching. During her classes, Caitlin deepens each student’s individual practice through adjustments and assists while keeping the vibe lighthearted and upbeat. She doesn’t believe in labels such as beginner or advanced, but rather teaches with the intention of growing each person’s practice to a place where the breath and the body can connect and flow in unison. Caitlin began to realize that for her, yoga was more than just teaching drop-in classes. It was from here that with the support of to many incredible people to count, Sangha Studio was founded. She wanted to create a space for people to be creative with their ideas and where classes were financially accessible for all. Sangha Studio opened in February 2014 and on September 1, 2014 Sangha Studio officially became Burlington’s only nonprofit yoga studio offering all donation based classes, $39 monthly sustaining memberships, and yoga service to the community. Since then, Caitlin has continued her education and has completed the bodhi & mind yoga training to lead classes specialized towards women living with breast cancer. She is currently studying for a 300 hour advanced teacher training, continuing her education with Kevan Gale at Stil Studio.
