In 2004, while attending college and working as a photographer in Washington DC, Kaitey tried her first power yoga class. Although a regular practice wasn’t a part of her life at that point in time, the seed was planted.
Yoga found its way back into Kaitey’s life after the sudden loss of her husband. On a trip out West in 2015, a friend reacquainted her with yoga, and that is where her true journey into yoga and healing began. Once she arrived home, Kaitey established a daily practice and found sanctuary. “My mat became my life raft— a safe space where I could show up as I was, to move and breathe, and just BE… without expectation or judgment. A time for self-reflection and introspection. Yoga helped shine a light on my darkened spirit and allowed me to connect with my strength of spirit.”
Through regular practice, the lessons of presence, connection, equanimity and balance that we cultivate on the mat, begin to extend into daily life.
Kaitey believes in the transformative power of yoga to nourish and heal the mind, body and spirit. She hopes her deep reverence and gratitude for this practice shines through in her teaching.
When Kaitey is not in the studio, you can find her skateboarding her German Shepherd, paddleboarding, skydiving, backpacking, traveling as much as she can, and all around adventuring. Kaitey obtained her 200 hour RYT certification in 2017.
