Please join Caitlin Marcoux, a Nantucket-based senior Prana Vinyasa® yoga teacher, for a sacred sadhana devoted to cultivating fluid grace and nourishing the warrior spirit. Many thanks to Larisa for creating this opportunity and offering our students a chance to practice with this distinguished teacher.
Catilin can be summed up in one word: AMAZING!!! Read her bio at the bottom, and we also encourage you to click on her website to watch the opening video of her practicing...you will likely be in awe.
As a recent breast cancer survivor, Caitlin will guide you through mantra, mudra and movement alchemy featuring circular movements to open a connection to our innate cellular intelligence. Fluid circular movement invokes spanda and the element of water which is believed to purify and nourish allowing energy to flow in the physical and somatic body. This practice honors the wounds within us all, and will inspire you to be an agent of change with vitality and hope. Yogis of all levels are welcome to this workshop.
Prana Vinyasa® is an energetic, creative, full-spectrum approach to embodying the flow of yoga cultivated by Shiva Rea and the Global Vinyasa Collective of Teachers. Students of all levels are empowered to experience prana - the universal source of breath, life-energy and conscious intelligence - as the navigating source of yoga practice and vital living. Practitioners learn classical and innovative approaches to vinyasa yoga and the state of flow drawn from Krishnamacharya's teachings, Tantra, Ayurveda, Bhakti, Somatics and Shiva's teaching experience from the last fifteen years.

After being a pilgrim on the Prana Vinyasa® path for over a decade, Caitlin, a senior Prana Vinyasa teacher, is deeply honored to be part of the global Prana Vinyasa Tribe and an assistant to Shiva Rea in service to the Prana Vinyasa® Teacher Training program. As a yoga teacher, Caitlin is known for her unique synthesis of asana and dance (BA, Dance and Choreography, Bard College, The Walnut Hill School for the Performing Arts), and for infusing her teaching with wisdom inspired by her triumph over multiple cancers.
In 2015 Caitlin was an honoree of the Massachusett’s General Hospital’s Cancer Center’s The One Hundred, which recognizes “100 Everyday Amazing individuals and groups each year who are changing how we fight cancer.” and she continues to advocate and support cancer patients through yoga and wellness mentorships.
Primarily teaching Prana Vinyasa® Yoga, Caitlin has brought the transmissions of this lineage to multiple yoga festivals, including the LoveYoga Fest, Unifier Festival, and The Nantucket Yoga Festival. She was honored to be the 2015 regional headliner for the Maine Yoga Festival, and a 2016 featured presenter at The Yoga Reaches Out New England Yogathon in recognition of her inspiring teaching style and ability to connect large groups of students to the practice.
She has been featured in N Magazine, Mantra Magazine and Origins Magazine for her work as a cancer activist and advocate, and she is thrilled to be a part of Shiva’s online school, Yoga Alchemy.com, where she will be offering courses in the healing arts. Her writing has been published on elephant journal and RebelleSociety.com. You can read excerpts from those pieces here and on her blog.
In 2014 Caitlin opened Nantucket’s only floating yoga studio: Paddle Nantucket, which offers an array of SUP Yoga classes as well as private and semi-private PaddleFit coaching on the calm waters of Nantucket’s north shore. You can find her teaching weekly yoga and indoor cycling classes for members of The Westmoor Club
