Kait leads Aerial Dance Series, Aerial Conditioning & Mobility, and Performance Lab at MASC. She began practicing yoga in 2010 when she first attended a class at University. As a life long athlete and outdoors enthusiast, she has always felt most uninhibited when engaging in movement. Yoga has given her an outlet to find meaning in that movement and provides a safe space for introspection. She believes that yoga is essential to maintaining a balanced life. Kait completed her 200 hr RYT through Greenville Yoga under the guidance of Liz Delaney in 2015. Flow and Yin are her favorite styles on the floor as she aims to guide students to combine yogic movement and meditation into one practice. Kait first began her aerial training in 2015 with her mentor Kelly Van Leeuwen of MAYA Movement Arts. She completed her Aerial Yoga Certification through Levity Aerial Yoga, a program accredited by Yoga Alliance, in the spring of 2016. Kait has also attended aerial workshops led by some of the most influential members of the industry. While aerial yoga and aerial choreography have become a fast passion, she still continues to find herself coming "home" to her mat. Having recently moved from Greenville, South Carolina--Kait is grateful for the opportunity to share her passion both through yoga and coaching aerial dance with the Missoula community.
