Meet Kari Kittinger
Yoga Therapist, RYT
Yoga therapy is specifically designed for you. It doesn't need to involve stretchy pants and heated rooms. In fact, you don't even need a yoga mat. Yoga therapy can be done anywhere from your living room to an office chair or even while lying in bed. This modality for health and wellness is truly accessible to everyone. I also integrate the science of Ayurvedic medicine into my practice and enjoy offering a whole-body approach to the yoga practice.
I am a certified yoga and prenatal yoga instructor with the Yoga Alliance and a certified-level I yoga therapist with IAYT, I am working towards my level II certification. I have 1000+ hours of training and 500+ hours of teaching. I am grateful for my teachers including, Mirka Kraftsow, C-IAYT, Lynn Weinberg, C-IAYT, Kaya Mindlin, C-IAYT, Simone de Winter, Robin Gueth, C-IAYT, Harvey Deutch, P.T., and Judith Hanson Lasater, Ph.D., P.T. In addition to yoga, I have studied Non-Violent Communication with Newt Bailey and Judith Lasater in San Francisco.
I live in Petaluma with my family and enjoy being in nature and cooking up the local bounty.
“I can’t say enough good things about my work with Kari. It was my first experience with yoga therapy. I’m not someone who does yoga or was really even that interested in yoga as I understood it to be. My work with Kari has opened up a whole new world to me. Not only did the work help me with my insomnia, it helped me work through some deep feelings and introduced me to a whole new level of self-care/self-compassion. Kari is a natural. Her loving, kind ways were not just wonderful to receive but also acted as a role model for self-care, ways I could be more gentle with myself and with others. I felt so safe and comfortable with Kari. She manages to thread the needle so skillfully: she’s both very warm, engaged and inviting but still professional and completely focused on our work. It seems effortless for her! Whether your are a very experienced yogini or someone who’s never been on a yoga mat, I think you could greatly benefit from Kari’s knowledge, expertise, and experience but the most valuable thing Kari offers is herself. ”
