Kaiut Yoga® came into my life in Telluride, Colorado in May 2017 when I went to Yvonne Mosser's class with a friend, it wasn't my favorite class, but left me curious since it is the Yoga of Biomechanics something I recently had become certified in through Katy Bowman and her Nutritious Movement exercises. I wanted to understand what made this the "yoga of biomechanics" so signed up for the September 2017 ten day teacher training and arrived with a torn medial meniscus. I understood within the first couple of days how to heal on my own.

I brought Kaiut Yoga® to Martha's Vineyard because I found everything I'd studied in the last decade happens in this practice. Every one has a unique Kaiut Yoga story. I was not looking for another modality in my life, but found the quiet practice of Kaiut Yoga to be so much more powerful than each modality I previously taught or practiced, it has given me greater freedom in my body and range of motion while also changing my experience of pain and a deeper calm in my whole system.
Kaiut Yoga® is all about biomechanical health (or said another way, your freedom of movement). It has been designed to work through chronic pain & injuries, general aches & stiffness, and work for the inflexible, hyper flexible and the aging body.
Unlike most yoga that stretches muscles in extraordinary ways, Kaiut Yoga® works from the joints. As such, it has a dramatic impact in countering the harmful effects of modern living – where most of us sit most of the day – as well as the harmful impact to our bodies of consistent movement patterns such as frequent running or cycling, playing a certain sport for years, or our compensating behaviors for old sports or other injuries.
Kaiut Yoga® is about maintaining or returning the body to optimal structure and functionality. It’s about freedom of movement, physical system and energy flow. It’s about keeping us as healthy, mobile and pain free as possible for as long as possible. With more freedom of body comes freedom of mind. It’s about a better quality of life.
