February 2020

February began on Day 3 of the Folsom, CA training where students Billie Burke and Rosemary Drinka are taking their second training. Always a pleasure to share space with students from all over, including a large local presence who all study at the host studio, Leap Yoga in Folsom. Having this time to challenge myself to continue letting go of fear and go deeper in feeling each day gives me greater freedom from pain and be my moving-in-nature self.

The monthly NYC Kaiut Yoga Pop-Up Workshop series continued  on February 8 with Alessandra Grando & Bruno Prager studio owners from New Orleans/Brazil. Don't miss March with Christina Siepiela founder of Dallas Kaiut Yoga. See the Classes page for more information and tell your NYC friends, or just come for the weekend for these intimate workshops (18 students max.). Kaiut Yoga creator Francisco Kaiut will teach two Living the Method Workshops in NYC April 24-26 and May 1-3, 2020. If you're interested in NYC classes contact teacher Chelli Devadutt at Kaiutyoganyc@gmail.com


In January I stopped by Kaiut Yoga Broomfield to say hi to Laura Inbody, studio owner. Then on to Boulder for continuing teacher education in immersions and a Living the Method workshop with teacher/creator Francisco Kaiut where MV/New Orleans student Laura Marshall took her first workshop with Francisco*. It was pretty wild to see a neon sign making the new Boulder Baseline Road Kaiut Yoga studio easy to find.

Getting to teach six classes over two days at Kaiut Yoga Dallas School was an honor. I look forward to returning next fall. Thank you Christina Siepiela.

I look forward to seeing everyone back in class beginning Tuesday, February 11.
