Caitlin Heller

RYT 200 Yoga Instructor
I’m a high school teacher, and I found yoga in 2014 on an experiential learning trip with my students. I remember seeing and feeling the waves of calm wash over the entire class, and I knew the physical practice provided so much more than a good workout.

I began practicing on my own, and realized that my time on the mat had an enormous positive impact on my life off the mat. Yoga changed the way I walked through the world. I chose to pursue my teacher certification during the spring of 2018 through an organization called Breathe for Change. Their mission is to bring yoga and mindfulness to teachers and their students with the hope of fostering more balanced and healthy lives. I was truly overwhelmed by my spiritual growth through the deepening of my own practice. Yoga, in the sanskrit definition means union-- to connect mind, body, and spirit. In a world that can be so disconnected, my hope is to encourage connection within individual yogis, as well as the collective. I’m passionate about sharing yoga with all ages and experience levels.

Caitlin Heller instructs the following:
  • Basics of Hatha Yoga
  • Hatha Yoga is a 60 minute slow flowing sequence of postures intended to build balance, strength and flexibility of the physical body to quiet the mind, increase energy flow, open the spine and prepare the body for stillness. In this class, students will experience longer holds in the postures to allow time to focus on the foundation of the pose, alignment of the physical body, the breath and quieting the mind. This class is suitable for a student new to yoga, and for those that wish to deepen their practice returning to their foundation of postures, alignment and breath.

  • Yin/Restorative
  • Yin/Restorative yoga is a one hour class that incorporates both yin and restorative postures to cultivate stillness, meditation and deep awareness. This practice is accessible and beneficial to people of all ages and fitness levels. No prior yoga experience is required and modifications will be given along the way if needed. If you sit for large amounts of time at work, this is a great class to break up fascia and relieve tension. With the addition of props, get ready to sink into poses and hold, relaxing and releasing.
