About Me - The Aligned Hygienist


My mission is to help you ditch pain, stress and anxiety, and create more freedom in your

body and mind so you can step into your power, have more fun and live a well-balanced life. I want to teach you the tools through yoga for back pain.

About Our Founder

My name is Caitlin, I’m a chronic pain survivor, Certified Yoga Therapist, Registered Dental Hygienist, and founder and CEO of Caitlin Parsons Yoga Therapy, a yoga therapy and wellness company. I recently made my dreams a reality by quitting my full-time job as a dental hygienist to pursue my passion and purpose helping others get back into alignment.

Now I use my personal and professional experiences with chronic pain, stress and anxiety, and injury recovery to help women step back into their own alignment – in their bodies, minds and throughout their lives. I help empower women to create balance in their bodies and minds so they can access greater levels of freedom in their lives inside my monthly membership program (Aligned), group coaching program for hygienists (The Aligned Hygienist), a Yoga + Coaching Program for Dental Teams, and private yoga therapy coaching.

I love to share my knowledge and expertise on mindfulness and therapeutic yoga for back pain through my blog and social media platforms as well as guest appearances on other inspiring and like-minded podcasts.

A letter from Caitlin

At Caitlin Parsons Yoga Therapy, my goal is to help you get intentional about your health. This means that I will teach you yoga for back pain (and other areas of pain!), help you build healthy habits, routines and patterns in your mind and body through strategy and planning, and I also teach you how to shift your mindset, become your own healer and how to listen to your body’s signs and signals.

For a long time, I struggled to see long lasting results in my own body and with my clients when it came to reducing stress, pain and feeling more balanced in life. I wasn’t combining both of them together and I soon realized this: it isn’t JUST about what happens on the mat and in our sessions if we aren’t addressing what happens when we are OFF the mat and in our everyday life. They can work as a cohesive team if we weave them together properly.

I realized quickly that in order to get my clients the results they desire that actually last, I had to combine my work with strategy and planning, both in their sessions and outside of their sessions, in addition to the work I do with teaching people how to shift their mindset and tap into their bodies innate wisdom. When strategy and aligned action is coupled with shifting your mindset, patterns and tapping into your unique healing capabilities, the results you get is far greater than is possible otherwise. And that is what I bring to my clients, communities and readers alike.

If you’re new to me and my website, I invite you to check out my recent blog posts, find me on Facebook or Instagram, or learn about the different podcasts I’ve been a guest on. You’ll find the thread weaving everything together is alignment. Whether you struggle with chronic pain, daily stress and anxiety, you are a dental professional/dental office owner, or you want to create new healthy habits that create balance in your life, I hope my message of creating alignment within your body, mind and life resonates with you and helps you to find more balance and create freedom in your life

Ready to find your freedom?

Let’s do it together. Get in touch about your therapeutic needs (yoga for back pain), speaking or podcast guest opportunities, or just to say hey!

What sets us apart


In addition to healing multiple personal injuries and overcoming chronic pain, we’ve helped dozens of people struggling with varying degrees of chronic pain, injuries, stress/anxiety and health habits and we know what works. We use a multitude of different tools and modalities with each client and see these individualized programs work time and time again.

Holistic Approach

Healing from chronic pain, stress or heavily ingrained health patterns is not easy; it requires you to look at the current reality from all angles to find a personalized solution. I plan your program with strategy and aligned action coupled with my intuitive and healing capabilities to get it right. Yoga for back pain, injury recovery, chronic pain or stress is my specialty! Think Physical Therapy Meets Yoga and Mindfulness!

Tailored Program

Each client receives a program tailored to their needs and goals. The most important part of the healing process is being able to customize your sessions and aligned action steps and allowing room to pivot when things change, improve or don’t prove to be effective so you get results fast.

Accountability & Support

Unlike other coaching or yoga therapy programs where you have weekly sessions and then you have to wait a whole week to ask questions, get feedback or support, our program is different. I’m here for you every step of the way. You’ll get daily access to me to help you keep the needle moving forward.

Access to Online Program

During our work together, you receive unlimited access to my online membership program (Aligned Online) that is filled with therapeutic classes and trainings to support you in between our sessions, and ultimately, help you get results sooner. Yoga for back pain, chronic pain, stress, and optimizing your health — on-demand + all in the comfort of your own home

Tracking Your Results

Instead of throwing spaghetti at a wall and seeing what sticks, we track you every step of the way. Starting with an in-depth intake form, we track each session with how you feel, progress you’ve noted, challenges you’re facing, and results we see. This allows us to constantly course-correct and get you better results faster.
