DARVIN AYRE

Teacher / Owner

Darvin has built a life around his outdoor enthusiasm both as a mountain / desert guide and through his love of outdoor sports. Not surprisingly, backcountry skiing, mountaineering, trail-running, and cycling led to a variety of physical injuries. Eventually, injuries to the shoulders, knees, and ankles manifested as severe sciatic pain and lack of joint mobility. Additionally, decades as a traveling business consultant added even more stress to both his body and mind. Darvin began practicing the Kaiut Method in the fall of 2016 and immediately experienced profound results. Inspired to delve deeper into the method, Darvin jumped into a year long teacher training shortly after. Darvin is committed to deepening his own understanding of the practice with Francisco Kaiut and is grateful to share this method with the Boulder community.

Kristin Savory

Teacher / Owner

Kristin came to Kaiut yoga after experiencing back pain after the birth of her second child. Though manageable, her back pain prevented her from participating fully from activities she loved such as hiking, biking, and playing with her children. As an acupuncturist, Kristin explored a variety of alternative healing modalities to alleviate her pain. While she did find some relief through these modalities, nothing addressed the issue as thoroughly as Kaiut. As a student of Francisco Kaiut since 2012, she is consistently inspired by the positive results she sees with the Kaiut Yoga Method. Outside of the yoga studio, Kristin maintains a full acupuncture practice helping women balance their hormones and enjoys spending time with her favorite folks; her family.

CRAIG HENEVELD

Teacher / Owner

Injuries are a blessing in disguise. For Craig, a series of acute knee injuries guided him to the path of Kaiut Yoga. Craig began studying with Francisco Kaiut in 2015 as a way to manage his pain. The results of his practice were immediate and profound. The practice helped him to understand how the intelligence of the Kaiut method resonates far beyond the mat into every moment of life. As a software engineer, Craig has personally experienced how those with lack of movement and a disembodied mind can benefit greatly from this practice. With continued dedication to his personal practice and with Francisco Kaiut, he looks forward to sharing this incredibly powerful work with the community.

MICHELLE ANDERSON

Michelle is a scientist, Kaiut Yoga instructor and yoga therapist, writer, craniosacral enthusiast, and nature geek who’s been teaching yoga in Boulder, CO since 2002. Michelle met Francisco Kaiut about ten years ago and is happy to be continuing her studies with him after co-owning Studio Be Yoga, LLC in Boulder, and developing an independent therapeutic yoga and healing business called BioDynamic Yoga, which incorporates Kaiut Yoga, craniosacral therapy, therapeutic yoga for adaptive athletes and individuals with disabilities and spinal injuries, and somatic workshops highlighting aspects of the nervous system and anatomy.

Michelle’s passion is to share hatha yoga and its incredible life-changing depth and to delve into the collective practice field where every person’s potential is available. She brings dedication, warmth, and humor to her work, drawing on her devotional practices inspired by her time spent in India. Michelle loves chanting and kirtan, ecstatic dance, energetic healing modalities, and climbing, hiking, and skiing. She is a geologist and amateur naturalist interested in all kinds of plant medicine, so she’s really fun to play outside with!

MEGAN ZUBAEDI

Kaiut Yoga Teacher

Megan is devoted to offering a space of love and acceptance where healing and growth naturally occur. As a child, Megan had multiple surgeries and full body casts to correct bilateral congenital hip dislocation (born with no hip sockets). In response to these early life-shaping experiences, she became a bodyworker, cranial-sacral practitioner, and somatic psychotherapist. Many of these and other modalities were essential to Megan’s healing and recovery. Even so, when Megan came to Kaiut Yoga in 2015, patterns of chronic pain and lack of mobility were manifesting that would inevitably lead to joint replacements and long term pain.

Megan is amazed, both as a student and as a healing arts practitioner of over 20 years, to see how a regular Kaiut Yoga practice has the ability to heal the body-mind in a gentle and significant way, even in the most deeply held injuries. Today, Megan has less pain, more mobility, and more freedom than ever in her life. She is honored to bring this practice to you.
