35: Caitlin Parsons ❤ Find Your Non-Negotiables

In this podcast, Caitlin shares about 6 ways to stand in your empowerment, finding inner resource, the benefits of yoga nidra and yoga therapy, the loving act of tuning into your body’s needs and non-negotiables, and how to manage dental anxiety.

Caitlin’s passion is to create a space for curiosity and the unfolding. She is a teacher, student, nature lover, and adventurer at heart-based in San Diego, California. Caitlin has spent thousands of hours experiencing, studying, teaching, and training in all things therapeutic yoga, meditation, yoga nidra, and sound healing. She is a Certified Yoga Therapist, 500hr E-RYT, and a Wellness Advocate.

Caitlin shares her love and passion for transformation through her supporting her students in an online program called The Embodiment Academy, where she takes a deep dive into meditation, mindfulness, movement, breath work, self-care, and self-inquiry. This program involves education, coaching support and strategy for creating daily habits. Caitlin also continues to bridge her therapeutic knowledge and practice into her education as a Dental Hygienist to help those suffering from physical, mental or emotional discomfort or pain through her 6-week Online Yoga Therapy Program and offering continuing education courses.
