Kasey came to yoga from a lifetime of athletics and manual labor. From growing up the second of eight children working on dairy farms, to collegiate rowing, to bicycle racing, to wild land firefighting, Kasey has had dirt under her nails and calluses on her hands for many moons. She came to yoga as a physical pursuit and kept coming back because it made her feel better. As she delves deeper into the teachings of yoga what strikes her is the beautiful simplicity and accessibility of what if means to lead a good life! She began teaching yoga because she truly loves sharing the experience of doing something that has such profound effects on people and they walk away thinking “That’s just what I needed!”
