my story


i'm cailen -- a yoga teacher, blogger, and entrepreneur.  ever since middle school, i've been drawn to creating and running my own businesses, and i began my first venture (a party service company) when i was just 14.  since then, my entrepreneurial spirit led me to start 3 more businesses -- an interior design company, a freelance writing biz, and finally (after completing my yoga teacher training) CALM yoga & CALM biz.  with each one, i was stepping more fully into my passion and purpose, and gathered quite a lot of biz savvy and social media experience along the way.

by trusting my intuition, i've crafted a lifestyle and career for myself that is truly and authentically meCALM yoga came first, offering on-site yoga classes and workshops. while i love teaching yoga, i don't want to be one of those teachers that gets burned out teaching 20 classes and tons of private clients each week. plus, i realized that my friends, family, and fellow yogis often sought me out for business and social media advice -- and, bingo, CALM biz came to fruition :-)  it dawned on me that my yoga "calling" wasn't to teach a particular style or demographic (i love teaching vinyasa, hot yoga, and restorative!), it was to fuse my two passions -- my blog (and social media savvy) with yoga.
