Name: Cailey Smith
I was born and raised in California. Dancing brought me from Northern CA to Los Angeles, where I eventually traded the competitive life of a dancer for the blissful life of a yogini! After completing my teacher training with YogaWorks, I spent several years teaching yoga and fitness classes in LA. In January I uprooted, selling most of my possessions, and headed for adventure in New Zealand and Australia! After 3 months of travel, Sydney was enticing enough to stop me in my tracks and bring the teaching bug back! I stumbled into Power Living and instantly felt at home. I am so excited to be a part of this family! My classes will be fun and athletic, while geeking out on alignment so that whether you are a new or seasoned yogi, you can leave feeling challenged, but safe.
Getting to know the crew:
What is your favourite asana posture and why?
Urdhva Dhanurasana (wheel). I used to hate it but over time and practice it’s become one of my favourites! I especially love the weightlessness and view when done on a stand up paddleboard.
When you’re not extending, bending and sweating, what do you like to do?
More extending, bending and sweating! You can often find me swimming, running, climbing things, training, and trying to master slack-lining. Otherwise I’m probably reading, blogging, or loitering in a coffee shop.
In one word, how would your best friend describe you?
My best friend is rubbish at counting….here’s what she said:
“Flexible! As in your body and also as in you’re down to get margaritas on a Tuesday afternoon. Strong! As in your muscles, will and friendship! Quick….as in your wit and also you can say and do things really fast! Ooo…and determined!”
