At first glance, Kacee Must’s Citizen Yoga empire looks like a typical yoga company. But look deeper and you see its focus is building community and connection as a way to prevent suicide. Kacee became an entrepreneur to honor the memory of her sister, Miya, who ended her own life in 2007. By providing a space where people feel included, welcome, and accepted, Kacee’s built a spiritual company. In this week’s Make Meaning podcast, Lynne Golodner talks with Kacee about her journey, our shared journey, and what the future holds.
Grounded in Vedic Philosophy, Kacee Must teaches alignment-based yoga, and opened the first alignment based Vinyasa studio in Metro Detroit. Her classes focus on self-expression and exploration. A 2006 graduate of Northwestern University, she opened the original Citizen Yoga location in Royal Oak, Michigan as a means to equip people with necessary and effective coping mechanisms. You can count on Kacee to instruct a safe, energetic practice that will leave you feeling nurtured, challenged, and will transcend the physical asana. Kacee is a certified 200-hour RYT, E-RYT, and she will soon be launching the 500-hour Citizen Yoga Teacher Training.
