Caitlin Lawson was born and raised in the small beach town of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. Cait’s first love was the ocean and started surfing at the age of eight, when her dad would push her into waves the small, forgiving waves of the Carolina shore. Throughout her adolescent years Cait surfed competitively in amateur and select Junior Pro & Pro surfing events. It was in college where she discovered yoga and its benefits after suffering a knee injury. A natural athlete, Cait had never been forced to stay off of her feet for so long and yoga was her way back to movement and freedom.
In December 2012, she graduated from the University of North Florida with a B.S. in Mass Communication and the following summer she completed her Teacher Training at Big Fish Power Yoga Studio. Shortly after her training, Cait relocated to Rincon, Puerto Rico where she is currently living, teaching, surfing and building her lifestyle brand Sunburnt & Salty. Caitlin teaches weekly yoga classes at Rincon’s Wellness Center, Centro La Paz, as well as a weekly Community Yoga/Karma Yoga Class. She offers private yoga, SUP yoga and surfing/paddleboard lessons in Rincon and she holds her E-RYT-200, CPR/First Aid, World Paddle Association Level 1, USLA Certifications. Caitlin is a trained SUP Yoga Instructor through Paddle into Fitness. Her goal as a yoga/surf instructor is to empower others to find their own strength, their own confidence, and their own light. Caitlin is an advocate for living a healthy, positive lifestyle, and is proud to be a Living Yoga Ambassador for Yoga Trade as well as an ambassador for Manduka, Go Light Our World, and Yoloha Yoga.
