Meet Dr. Kailee Karst,
the mind behind Mindful Movement!

Dr. Kailee Karst, physical therapist and yoga instructor, sitting in yoga pose in Richmond Virginia

Dr. Kailee Karst has clinical experience in outpatient orthopedics, focusing on care for the whole body, with a specialization in pelvic health

Kailee found her passion for the field of physical therapy in clinical practice, helping people understand the subtleties of human movement and how to navigate through pain, in order to improve quality of life.

Kailee has taken extensive training in manual therapy through the Virginia Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy Institute, and takes a hands on approach in order to help maximize results in physical therapy.

Kailee has also taken courses in pelvic health and pregnancy and postpartum through the American Physical Therapy Association, and enjoys working with soon to be and new moms, and people suffering from problems like diastasis recti, urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse.

On top of being a physical therapist, Kailee has been teaching yoga for over eight years, and realizes that not everyone is comfortable in a traditional western yoga environment, and not all western yoga is appropriate for every person.  Knowing how much of a difference yoga has made in her life, she hopes to help people find a yoga practice that fits their own individual needs.

Kailee started Mindful Movement Physical Therapy with the goal of providing individualized, hands on care, to help patients meet their goals faster and more efficiently.
