Provider of yoga therapy and meditation services
Caitlin Brown (she/her/hers) is the founder of Mindful Detroit, a licensed macro social worker (LMSW), and experienced registered yoga instructor (E-RYT 500). 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 200 hour Yoga Teacher certification from the Asheville Yoga Center in 2010, her BA from the University of Michigan in 2006, her MSW from Wayne State University in 2012, and her 300 hour Foundations in Yoga Therapy certification from Inner Peace Yoga Therapy in 2020. She is currently training to become a Yoga Therapist through Inner Peace Yoga Therapy. She has received training in yoga for: trauma (3 different trainings), back pain, injury prevention, anxiety and depression, grief, pain, addiction, cancer, functional yoga therapy, the chakras, and Ayurveda. She has a Master’s in Social Work from Wayne State University and is licensed in the state of Michigan. During her MSW program, she studied clinical practice and CBT, and interned at an agency that incorporated therapeutic yoga for eating disorders. Since graduating, she has done work in research, evaluation, program planning, and teaching. In addition to her group and private yoga and mindfulness offerings, Caitlin is also an adjunct faculty member at Wayne State University, where she teaches coursework on yoga, mindfulness, and mind-body-spirit approaches in social work practice.
