About

Hi, I'm Kaitlyn, founder of Inclusion Health

I started Inclusion Health as a way to bring my love for health and wellness to more people. I  have spent the last ten years teaching yoga, barre and other forms of workouts at the top studios and gyms in the United States. During this time, I realized that a lot of people feel intimidated or overwhelmed by traditional workouts or neglect their mental and emotional health even though they are experts at physical workouts. I founded Inclusion Health as a way to put on private and public events that bring people together in a healthy and active way by filling the holes in the fitness industry. 

The Inclusion technique fuses together a mentally stimulating question that brings people together, followed by yoga that is combined with strength training and cardio to create a full body physical workout and is followed by a themed meditation that calms the soul and mind.

People that have attended Inclusion events have said,

"First of all, it was such a great work out! I was sweating and sore the next day and I work out regularly! Second, it created such a great safe place to interact with each other and embrace our differences! Definitely going to more!"-Natalie 

"I love how you make it a proper workout, a chance to have fun, and finish feeling relaxed and centred - can't wait for the next one."-Anna 

and

"Exactly how health and fitness should be done."-Harry

In addition to these public events, I have also had a chance to put on private events for company retreats, corporate wellness fairs and bridal parties. After receiving wonderful feedback from many of my attendees, and multiple suggestions of doing videos because of the desire to do this technique on a regular basis, I decided that doing online videos would be a great addition to the Inclusion Health repertoire. Also, I have experienced how much people enjoy having videos that they can do from the comfort of their own home or take with them when they travel on work trips or vacations.

Out of all my years of working in multiple fitness environments and having tried just about every kind of workout, fitness app, wellness website and health trend out there, I have never found a fitness or workout regimen that combines mental, emotional and physical health in the way that the Inclusion technique does. My clients also find that Inclusion Health is unique and different to any other classes or workouts because it is a full experience rather than just an exercise. 

Inclusion Health was founded on the premise and the promise of "Getting Healthy While Giving Back" and our goal is that for each event, class, or in this case video series that we create, we will also share it with marginalized parts of our society so that they too have a chance to get holistically healthy. 

I became very passionate about this video project because I feel it is an amazing tool to reach more people who might not otherwise be able to make it to a live Inclusion event, or any yoga or fitness class. By bringing these videos to people's phones, tablets or laptops, they will be able to get their physical, emotional and mental workout all in one place. 

According to the Wall Street Journal "studio classes, workshops, books, online courses and apps ... is worth about $1.2 billion and growing." With this ever growing need and desire to become healthy and the average person's schedules becoming busier by the day, people are searching for convenient and efficient ways to accomplish holistic health. With apps such as Calm, which brings meditations to your phone, claiming Apple's choice for best app in 2017 followed by 2018 Apple choice for top trend being Self Care, it seems clear that people want to use their phones as a means to improve their health. Aside from that, there is major success with many different online platforms ranging from streamed videos to purchased downloads that clearly shows that the future of fitness is in the palm of our hands. But it is nearly impossible to find these resources all in one place. There's one website for your mediation, another for your ab workouts, another for your cardio runs and yet another for your yoga. It is easy to imagine that most people have no desire to go searching all over, albeit just their phones, for a well rounded health routine. 

This is where Inclusion Health fills the void. One hour segments on one website is all it takes to address your mental, physical and emotional health in an easy, accessible, fun and effective way.

People have high expectations for their lives these days and they need to be able to attain those expectations in an efficient way. In Inclusion Health's series of videos I will address the areas of Family, Relationships, Food, Work, Finances and Global Impact as themes that will run through each of the six videos. By combining my over 300 hours of Registered Yoga Teacher training with my knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda (ancient Indian healing), acupressure and chakras, I have specifically designed yoga posture sequencing and meditation to focuses and improve upon these six areas of life.

As the popularity of these videos grow, I hope to bring my classes and events to larger groups around the country and globe. I hope to bring the idea of holistic health to more people so that people not only get a great physical workout but they gain strength for their emotions and mental capacity. I also hope to bring more resources to underprivileged people in lower income communities and nations.

But I cannot do this without your help! With the events and classes I have put on thus far, I have kept the prices low so that as many people could attend as possible. Unfortunately this has only covered my own costs and has not left me with a surplus of funds to expand in areas like these videos. So in order to bring these videos to you and the rest of the world, I really need your help!

Here's exactly where your money is going:

Risks and challenges

The challenge to creating these videos is simply to raise enough money to cover the cost of production and post production. I have an amazing cast made up of incredibly talented and very diverse people who are volunteering their precious time for free to be in the shoot. So we simply need to cover the cost of location, filming, editing and online platform costs. Every single dollar that you donate will go directly towards the creation and distribution of these videos and you will directly be making the world a healthier place!
