Cait was drawn to yoga over ten years ago after trying many different methods to overcome anxiety and stress. She found that practicing yoga transformed her life in a way that allowed her to develop stronger self-respect, positive self-talk, physical strength, flexibility and balance. She received her 200 RYT through the Yoga Center of Teacher Training in HoHokus, NJ. She believes that all situations begin with thoughts, and when thoughts are reshaped, words and actions are also reshaped into a life that is present and fulfilled, and her teaching offers an opportunity to connect with the authentic voice.
