Aprille began practicing yoga in 1993, first studying on her own with books, then later seeking out a teacher. She dreamed back then of becoming a yoga teacher, but it would be years before that became a reality. Over the years Aprille studied a variety of styles of yoga. After years of sitting stationary in the technology field and dynamically moving while rock climbing, Aprille came to Kaiut Yoga with a variety of injuries. Somewhere during that time Aprille had children, which had also altered her body in ways that required healing. After stepping into her first Kaiut Yoga class, Aprille immediately recognized the benefits of Kaiut, experiencing sensations she hadn’t felt in all her years of other yoga practice. Aprille studied with Francisco Kaiut in Boulder and in Brazil over the last several years. The greatest joy she experiences is helping to guide others to experience greater freedom of movement and enjoyment of their bodies, ultimately healing themselves.
For the past five years Pam has devoted herself to the practice of Kaiut Yoga, which has become a passion in her life. Although she didn’t start out thinking she’d become a Kaiut Yoga teacher, that idea grew along with her passion. At first, Kaiut Yoga was all about healing her ankle after three major surgeries in a single year. After a couple of years at the Barn, she also realized that she’d found a special community that was as healing to her as the yoga was. At this time of her life, it feels like a natural progression to share the practice about which she cares deeply, and which she studies consistently. Pam is engaged in ongoing teacher training with Francisco Kaiut, and she loves sharing the joy and healing of Kaiut Yoga. With five children and five grandchildren, she’s especially grateful that Zoom allows her to be with her family, study with Francisco Kaiut, teach, and practice Kaiut Yoga daily, no matter where she is.
When she’s not on the mat, Adri enjoys creating intuitive artwork, meditating, cooking, hiking, and spending time with her 3 fluffy cat children.
