Hello, my name is Kyle McGregor and I'm a licensed physical therapist and certified yoga teacher. I graduated from the University of Vermont with my Doctorate of Physical Therapy in 2014 and have primarily worked in the outpatient orthopedic setting. It was my desire to help people combined with my love for the human body that drove me towards physical therapy. This drive segued beautifully into my passion for yoga, as it provides the opportunity to empower others and possibly prevent injuries from developing in the first place.
Yoga has been a part of my life for almost a decade now but it wasn't until this past March that I traveled to Rishikesh, India (the birthplace of yoga) to hone my personal practice and to enable me to teach others its physical and emotional benefits. I am formally trained in both Ashtanga and Hatha yoga styles, and my classes tend to fall closer to the Hatha end of the yogic spectrum. The Hatha style encourages the modification of poses to meet the doer's abilities and therefore it is I enjoy structuring my classes in the vinyasa or flow style, as pairing the breath and the movement helps to deepen the practice and promotes a greater mind-body connection.
While I enjoy teaching group classes, my professional passion lies with the private lessons. Private lessons enable us the time and structure to hone in on your goals both within your yoga practice and beyond. As a physical therapist, I know how to appropriately tweak poses to increase the intensity and isolate the target tissue in order to progress your practice in a safe and effective manner. So, if private lessons sound appealing, it’d be my pleasure to talk with you and address any questions or concerns you might have.
