Caitlin’s Story

Caitlin Brown is the founder of Mindful Detroit and a licensed macro social worker (LMSW) and registered yoga instructor (E-RYT 200). She began her journey with yoga and meditation due to her own struggles with anxiety. As a social worker, she has also turned to her mat and her cushion for important and reflective self-care to prevent burnout and compassion fatigue that is all too common in helping professions. She founded Mindful Detroit to share yoga, mindfulness and wellness services.

She received her yoga teacher certification from the Asheville Yoga Center in 2010, her BA from the University of Michigan in 2006 and her MSW from Wayne State University in 2012. She is currently training to become a Yoga Therapist through Inner Peace Yoga Therapy.

She was born and raised in the city of Detroit and is excited to share these services with her community.
