Your first 10k
Progressive Running + Yoga + Coaching
So you can run. A bit. Maybe a couple of miles. Or a few on a good day.
And now, dear casual runner, you decided you are ready to take it to the next level.
You are ready to lace up those sneakers, hit the pavement, and slowly build some endurance.
You are ready to graduate from those casual 5k races and go for the next level of running: the illusive 10k.
It’s more miles. It’s a bit more training. But you know you can do it.
And with the support of a program that slowly progresses you from where you are, up to that 10k distance, and a coach, community, plus a lot of loving recovery and cross-training with yoga, you’ll have everything you need to get to the next level.
“Running is about finding inner peace, and so is a life well lived.”

Why We LOVE Running
It’s no secret that we love a great yoga class. The physical, physiological, mental, and emotional support that yoga offers is unlike anything else. I mean, who doesn’t love open hips, a great memory, and a clear mind?!
In terms of improving overall health and wellbeing, yoga does more to help clear the mind, reduce overall stress, relieve chronic pain, and support the nervous system than any other form of exercise.
In fact, it’s so good at supporting overall wellness and wellbeing, that most people believe yoga is the only exercise needed to stay healthy.
And that is partially true. But there is one category of overall wellness where yoga falls short. And that gap is exactly why we created this program.
Cardiovascular health, or heart health, is that category.
Luckily, there is a way to get the heart rate up regularly. And with the right plan, and the right coach, you can slowly, and steadily, build up enough endurance to begin running up to 3 miles, all while improving cardiovascular health and preventing injury.
Running is alone time that lets my brain unspool the tangles that build up in my mind
Meet Your Instructor
Caitrin was introduced to yoga as a way to supplement a running regiment that had left her sidelined with a hip injury.
What began as a physical practice to allow her hip to heal quickly transformed into a practice that provided mental clarity and emotional healing.
Caitrin completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training through in power yoga in 2013.
Off the mat, Caitrin is a licensed mental health counselor and a teacher at a therapeutic school.
She believes strongly in the whole-body approach to health and loves that yoga offers a beautiful medley of physical health, mindfulness, and mental well-being.
She believes that yoga offers a space to challenge oneself physically, while also challenging mental patterns that can stand in the way of achieving a greater happiness.
Note to self: I am going to make you so proud you did this.
