Yoga gives us the opportunity to love ourselves in a very specific way. To engage with the healing potential within: becoming our own resource for healing and recovery of any kind.
We are made to heal and to grow. Made to engage with our potential and to learn what we are capable of on a very deep level. This is the capacity of our human creature. We are capable of recovering and regenerating. We are capable of healing and of aging in a way that does not incur more and more disability, but the opportunity to grow endlessly. This is what is possible. Yoga is a tool to get us there. Yoga is a technology. It has been around for a very long time, but it might be more relevant now than ever before.
“We’ve been doing yoga under the powerful influence of the fitness field. And this is something we want to erase from our practices. The more we practice, the more we must understand that Yoga is absolutely something else. It is you using your body in alignment with nature and therefore having from your body a neurological consequence in your brain.” – Francisco Kaiut
Kaiut Yoga, developed by Francisco Kaiut of Brazil, is a simple and effective Yoga Method. It addresses the body in a variety of ways to unlock Nature and unleash the healing potential within you.
Kaiut Yoga classes utilize the seed of traditional Yoga poses, applied to the modern body and the modern lifestyle. All the poses are progressive. This means that they are accessible for any body of any age, stage and ability. There is no “right” version of any pose, only what your body is able to do in this moment. Kaiut Yoga is not about forcing your body to do something that looks like the perfect picture you have seen in a yoga journal. It is about discovering what you personally can do and regaining mobility and adaptability as you age. Much of the work is done on the floor at a gentle pace with very accessible guidance.
Kaiut Yoga reflects the needs of the modern human: down regulating and balancing our overworked nervous systems, holistically addressing the effects of too much sitting and the impacts of repetitive use, maintaining and even recovering the mobility in worn out and aging joints. This practice restores the body’s natural ability to balance, heal and evolve. As we regain our freedom of movement old injures heal, chronic tension and stiffness dissolve, and we become more mobile and flexible in all aspects of life.

~Megan’s Story with Kaiut Yoga~
I am gifted in this life with a body that has been through great challenges. I was born without hip sockets – bilateral congenital hip dislocation. It went undiagnosed until I was 18mos old at which time I embarked on the 15 year process of constructing stable hip sockets. I had many reconstructive hip surgeries, followed by full body casts, on and off throughout my young life. When my orthopedic doctor ‘graduated’ me at age 18, he said, “Well, we have done everything we can for you. Expect that you will need your hips replaced by the time you are 40.” My life was on a healing path long before that moment, but what came in the next decades has me nowhere near where he predicted. When I met Francisco in 2015, at 38, I was moving into more and more chronic pain. The doc’s prediction was in my future somewhere. I could feel it in the nagging inflammation in the right hip, the chronic low back pain, the migraine headaches. I had been my own greatest client for the last 20 years, caring for myself through the experience of every modality I have studied and woven into my healing basket. But still: the pain was there, the inevitable arthritis, the eventual hip replacements and a slow degrade into a painful old age.
None of that is true anymore. My body is still my teacher, I feel a lot, but my vision of myself at 85 has shifted from being in a wheelchair, to not being in one. I am open to needing joint replacements if I do indeed need them, but I have no pain, no arthritis, only more and more mobility, freedom and deep harmony in my body and in my life.
Francisco developed the Kaiut Yoga Method out of his own need to contend with a body in pain. He studied and learned and researched and developed something that helps him and that he can offer to the world in a safe, repeatable, effective way. He continues to refine and adjust and evolve the work as his understanding deepens.
When I met Francisco and found Kaiut Yoga, something happened for me. I immediately recognized that much of what I had learned about healing made sense inside the form of the Kaiut Yoga Method. It resonated in my body as correct on such a deep level that I knew it could save me from tremendous loss in this life. This offering as a Kaiut Yoga teacher is my response to that. I feel that the best thing I can offer my clients and students is this method that helped me move out of physical restriction and into greater freedom and health.
I practice most every day. My Kaiut Yoga practice is the tool that keeps my body from locking up in scar tissue and trauma, stress and lack of mobility. When my body is free, my mind follows, my heart responds, my life comes ever more into harmony. This is just the way it is. My life is not special or unique in this way. It is, just as yours is, but not in this way. Everyone who does yoga properly, with the right orientation in mind, has the ability to benefit in the way that I have. The way that thousands of Kaiut Yoga students have. Kaiut Yoga addresses the whole human being. From our joints to our skin, our habits to our luminosity. Come, drink from the well of your own deep intelligence. It is not hard, you just have to do it.
