Meet our latest Teacher Feature, Caitlin Pike! Caitlin graduated from Yoga For All Beings very first Teacher Training program and starting teaching at YFAB in October 2016. Read on to learn a few fun facts about Caitlin in her own words below.
I’ve been practicing yoga since my early 20s. Though I quickly came to love it, I was so intimidated in my first few classes that I never corrected a teacher who for some reason thought my name was April until it was too late… I let her call me that until I moved away.
✂️ Besides yoga, my passion is making things by hand. I’ll try almost any craft (weaving, pottery, sewing, embroidery, bookmaking…) but I always come back to my first love, knitting. I also like to make soap, candles, and various bath/body products. You can read some craft tutorials I’ve written at http://f52.co/1ZSUf5d.
I love being outdoors and in nature – camping, hiking, biking, etc. This summer I’ve gone on (and absolutely loved) my first backpacking and bike camping trips.
🐱 I have a big, fluffy black-and-white cat named Henry Bear. He loves belly rubs and is the apple of my eye!
✨Find Caitlin on the regular schedule Mondays at 6:15pm for Vinyasa Level 1-2 and you can also find her subbing classes at YFAB on occasion.
Read Caitlin Pike’s full bio below:
After a decidedly unathletic adolescence, Caitlin found vinyasa yoga in 2009 and loved how at home in her body it made her feel. As she continued to practice, she found that her physical, mental, and emotional wellness were more deeply intertwined than she had ever imagined. Yoga helped her find more balance and ease in everyday life, along with space for exploration and play—yoga is fun!
Caitlin joined the Yoga for All Beings community shortly after the studio opened and completed her 200 hour teacher training with YFAB in spring 2016. She is honored to share this practice with others in classes that create space for mindfulness and self-care. Most of all, she is grateful for how yoga can teach us to inhabit our poses and our lives with integrity, strength, and grace.
