Caitlin took her first yoga class in college in 2015 at the University of Vermont and instantly felt at home in her mind and body- she knew that this powerful practice would now always be a part of her life.
Caitlin received her 200-hour Yoga Teacher Training in Truckee, CA in 2019 and since then has focused on trauma-informed yoga, completing a training in San Francisco and continuing with her own personal study - she is currently receiving her 300-hour Yoga Teacher Training at the Front in Ogden, UT.
Her classes here at Free Spirit will be a reflection of who is in class. Classes will be personally tailored and curated to provide a safe and effective practice for all. Caitlin believes yoga is an extremely powerful tool for self-regulation. The goal of her classes is to promote and practice self- regulation: cultivating a sense of safety, groundedness, and presence in the body. Her classes will be a combination of movement, mindfulness practices/mind-body connection awareness and breath work.
Caitlin is originally from Vermont and moved to Ogden in July 2023. Yoga aside, you can find Caitlin cooking in the kitchen, planning her next adventure, eating dark chocolate, or getting cozy with a book or podcast.
Emily combines her experience as a social worker, physical therapy assistant, and yoga teacher to practitioners of all ages to offer an inclusive yoga experience that restores the body and calms the mind. Recognizing that the body feels different with each day, each season of the year and each phase of life, she incorporates a dynamic approach to movement and breath work to cultivate mobility, balance and inner strength. Her focus is to soften into the more subtle benefits of slowing down to attune the body and mind.
Drawing from her background in Restorative, Yin, Vinyasa Flow, Core Power and Prenatal Yoga, Emily finds a new practice every day, bringing together a sense of play, with flows that are always changing. She uses trauma sensitive care and an open mind to meet the needs of the class in front of her.
Utah is a haven for exploring mountains, deserts, rivers and lakes. Emily spends her free time appreciating yoga through mountain biking, hiking, snowboarding and paddle boarding alone or with her husband and two daughters.
