About Kitty Blincoe
“A calm mind is the investment for success. If you know how to free yourself of tension you know how to solve your problems in life.” says Swami Satyananda Saraswati. A while ago I came across the description “soul nurturer” in reference to parenting, however it struck me as a possibly perfect description for yoga and meditation teachers as well. The ever increasing peace, serenity and unity with life – this nurturing of the soul my practice brings is what I hope to help the world experience. Having reaped benefits of yoga and meditation since my cancer diagnosis in May of 2004, it is my intention to assist others in learning how to empower themselves to better health through developing life coping skills, mindfulness and stress management – one being, one class, one breath at a time. Mindful movement, breath awareness and creative intelligent sequencing drawn from various lineages are key foundations of my classes. Expect an uplifting and fun playlist in a safe and caring environment. “Like a big hug” said one workshop participant.
I am currently obtaining my 300 hour advanced teaching certificate through Yoga Synthesis which draws inspiration from Krishnamacharya’s lineage (B.K.S. Iyengar, Pattabhi Jois, and T.K.V. Desikachar), Classical Hatha Yoga Schools (Shivananda Yoga and Integral Yoga), as well as Kundalini Yoga, as taught by Yogi Bhajan. I am a member of the International Association of Yoga Therapists with special training in meditation and therapeutic yoga completed at Duke Integrative Medicine, as well as Kripalu and Om Yoga (with Tari). I am a trained y4c teacher and am certified in Reiki – Level II, Yoga of Awareness, Relax&Renew Restorative Yoga and am a Young Living Essential Oils Distributor/Consultant. I love sharing the beauty of yoga as a teacher trainer and through workshops too. I have taught yoga and meditation to cancer survivors and other populations in both the medical setting and in the studio setting. I am honored and thrilled to be a part of evolving the face of healthcare through the y4c program.
