Karolyn Kilpinen

RYT 200

Meet Karolyn, the owner and founder of Bend & Mend Physical Therapy. Karolyn has always had a passion for helping others and chose to combine this passion with her love of sports and physical wellness by pursuing a career in physical therapy. She obtained her Doctorate Degree in Physical Therapy from Grand Valley State University in 2009 and moved to Charlotte in 2018. She enjoys helping people regain function and get back to enjoying the activities they love. She chose to dive deeper into the principles of yoga training and philosophy through the Soulful School of Yoga at Okra and is now a 200-RYT. She enjoys blending the principles of yoga with her knowledge of the human body to safely adapt postures to her clients. What she loves about the practice of yoga is it allows you to move your body to move your mind towards ease. It unifies communities; allows people of all kinds to come together and encourage every “body” to persevere, show grace, and accept each other as we are in that moment. It embraces life in its raw, chaotic beauty and gives us strength to overcome obstacles. Yoga is her rock and it shows as Karolyn will guide you through your practice with her kind and nurturing demeanor.
