Hey, I'm Caitlin — 


Doctor of Physical Therapy. 


My work is inspired by functional strength and mobility, developmental movement, somatics, yoga, self-massage, and conscious relaxation.


Join me for a multidisciplinary mix of movement that champions inquiry and autonomy. I offer group classes online and one-on-one movement consultations, in person and virtually.

Does this sound like you?

  • You’re a curious student of movement who enjoys feeling strong, comfortable, and capable in your daily activities 

  • You need a practice that fits your life—short bouts of accessible, impactful movement throughout your day that can be done with minimal set-up

  • Maybe you’re the oddball who can’t fully subscribe to just one method of practice

  • You’re a teacher of movement who’s ready to replace rigid protocols with more variety, exploration, and play

If you’re nodding your head yes, I’m right there with you.


I’ve got your back with tools honed over several years of study across a wide variety of movement disciplines. My teaching places the student in the driver’s seat and champions inquiry.


I operate from an antifragile stance, one that views the human body as robust, adaptable, and resilient. I believe in our abilities to build capacity and develop new skills through knowledge of self and interaction with our environments. My vision for movement practice expands beyond the self to support ease in participation with our families, communities, and the world.


My therapeutic aim is to make movement physically accessible to the general population, and more widely available to folks across socioeconomic backgrounds. I strive to educate about the science of the human body while making space for the unknown.

Thank you for the fantastic series! I had so much fun doing these elemental moves—it reminded me of how easily and naturally I used to move as a kid, and how much fun it is to explore the body in space. Thank you also for the reminder to observe how something feels rather than judge it.



I'm loving your strength and somatics classes and am so grateful that you're teaching them. Whenever I've visited a good physical therapist, I've always thought how great it would be if they taught weekly classes about how to move safely, efficiently and with intelligence. Not only are you doing that, you also make it fun! I particularly like it when you giggle at your own jokes.



Caitlin's teaching is informed and enriched by her in-depth studies of human movement. So she's able to meet the needs of a wide variety of practitioners and keep things fresh and interesting.



Caitlin challenges you to work clearly and with stability, helping you to strengthen your joints. Her classes have helped me feel more capable as I go through my day. I love that she offers a variety of household objects as props. It makes movement accessible to everyone. It also changes my relationship to movement. Using familiar objects makes me realize how I can incorporate more movement into my everyday life.




A mentorship for yoga teachers and movement specialists

12 weeks of online learning. The current cycle of Cross-Fade is now closed. Stay tuned for the next course in 2021.

The mentorship was immensely useful to consolidate concepts that I had learned through practice and to expand my knowledge of the body and how it works. It also encouraged me to experiment more in my own practice, and gave me the confidence and the terminology to share more of what I am learning with my students. Finally, it helped me feel less isolated in my search for answers beyond those provided by the specific type of yoga that I first began practicing.



Caitlin is one of the most thoughtful, talented and supportive teachers I have come across and as someone who takes a LOT of trainings (like 2-3 every year) and loves to learn, I can honestly say this one went above and beyond my expectations. I feel like a better, stronger and more well-informed teacher of movement as a result of participating in this mentorship.
