She loves to meet and connect with like-minded people while building a strong sense of community. Kaycie’s passions go deeper than just yoga. She enjoys helping others to see their truest potentials by deepening their inner awareness with the use of meditation, yoga, essential oils, and writing. Kaycie is also a blogger on these topics, and some of her articles have been published on elephant journal. She enjoys teaching both energetic Vinyasa classes as well as slower meditative Yin styles. Kaycie continues to grow as a teacher by furthering her knowledge as a student. Currently, she teaches at Sukha Studios in Modesto but has also ventured into the world of teaching online yoga classes. She has big dreams of traveling and teaching around the world while sharing her passions with as many people as she can. Community building is a huge focus for Kaycie as she strives to bring people together to live the life they love.
