Kate Fitzgerald E-RYT 200/500 is a licensed and nationally certified massage therapist. She had her first insight into her purpose when she walked into Massage school at the age of 21. She always had a vision of helping others, but it wasn’t until that Monday morning in October that she knew she was on the right path. Her life began to change in amazing ways as she was introduced to other modalities such as Reiki and CranioSacral Therapy. After multiple car accidents and years of practicing massage, Kate enrolled in a yoga teacher training program for personal growth and well being. A year later she decided that teaching yoga would give her the opportunity to share her knowledge of the body and self healing with a larger community. While she loves the results from assisting her clients through modalities of bodywork, Kate realized that teaching yoga to those in her community would give them the tools necessary for their own self healing. After a couple of years of searching for the right space Kate opened Involution Yoga to share her love of yoga with the community. Having grown up in Southern Delaware, Kate is pleased by the growth and diversity of yoga practices and styles in the area. She is truly grateful to the yoga teachers in the community that came before her and inspired her along her way.
Lindsay Fitzgerald decided at the age of 11 that she wanted to be a child therapist. She graduated from the University of Delaware in 2005 with a bachelor of Psychology. In 2006 Lindsay decided that she needed a healthy way to deal with the stress of her career path and signed up for a teacher training in Svadhyaya yoga with Susan hamadock of Silver Lotus Training Institute. What drew Lindsay to this style of yoga was that the creator herself was a Psychologist and the focus was to go within to truly understand the self. The tools that she learned through this training have been instrumental in how she continues to approach her own self healing and the children that she interacts with daily. In 2012 she continued her training in LA with Caroline Klebl of Source of Yoga and obtained another 200 hours of training in Ashtanga Yoga.

Kim Doughty-Cavagnaro Her love of Yoga began in 1998 while taking her first Hatha yoga class in college. She was majoring in Ceramics at the time and found yoga to compliment her studies and also to be a place of tranquility and great release. After maintaining a personal practice for the last 13 years she decided it was time to share yoga’s virtues as well as her love and passion for this art form with others. Her first teacher training was with Tim Miller, and soon afterward she did her second training with David Swenson. Her heart lies with Ashtanga yoga, the practice spoke to her the first time she tried it. There is something about the sound of the collective breath in a Mysore class and the silent motion of each student’s personal practice moving at their own pace that fully energizes her. While not practicing yoga, making ceramics or jewelry, or playing in the garden she can be found on the couch enjoying fresh baked cookies with her husband and their two fat cats. Oh yeah, for the most part she dedicates her time to running her business, The Artful Bean Coffee Shop and Fine Art & Craft Gallery in Bethany Beach.
Justin Cavagnaro has been following his creative side since childhood. He received an Associates Degree in Fine Arts in 1996 and went on to earn a BFA, with a major in Glassblowing and Woodworking, in 2001. He has been pursuing a career as an independent artist since that time. In 2011, with encouragement from his wife, Justin began practicing yoga at home. Shortly after beginning his yoga journey he stumbled onto the Ashtaga Yoga method. It was love at first bend. Though initially drawn to physicality of the Ashtanga practice, it didn’t take long for him to see the actual benefits manifesting themselves on a more internal and personal level. The aspect of yoga as “moving meditation” became more apparent, and deepened his commitment to his practice. Justin’s passion for the Ashtanga Yoga method led to his taking Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Trainings with Tim Miller and David Swenson. Justin is hoping to inspire others to spend some time on their mats, getting to know their bodies and minds a bit better. He would like to show his students that by allowing themselves to have the time to practice, with a consistent effort great results can be achieved, both on and, more importantly, off the mat.
