Aprille began practicing yoga in 1993, first studying on her own with books, then later seeking out a teacher. She dreamed back then of becoming a yoga teacher, but it would be years before that became a reality. Over the years Aprille studied a variety of styles of yoga. After years of sitting stationary in the technology field and dynamically moving while rock climbing, Aprille came to Kaiut Yoga with a variety of injuries. Somewhere during that time Aprille had children, which had also altered her body in ways that required healing. After stepping into her first Kaiut Yoga class, Aprille immediately recognized the benefits of Kaiut, experiencing sensations she hadn’t felt in all her years of other yoga practice. Aprille has spent the last year studying with Francisco Kaiut in Boulder and in Brazil and is excited to focus on helping others experience greater freedom of movement and enjoyment of their bodies.

Megan comes to Kaiut Yoga through the door of the healing arts. A yoga student for decades, it was the healer in her that got so engaged by Kaiut Yoga.

She has been amazed to see how, over time, her own Kaiut Yoga practice has restructured her body in a gentle and significant way, even in the most deeply held injuries. She is honored to bring the practice to others. As a Cranial Sacral practitioner, Body-Energy Worker, and Counselor, she offers the Kaiut Yoga practice with a refined sensitivity and a real understanding of the benefits. She is devoted to holding a space of love and acceptance, where the natural integration of body, mind, heart and soul can occur.
