Woman Crush: Katlin Sisson of Yoga for Bad People

Katelin Sisson 4

The Hatha Yoga Pradipika explains that “adhering too strictly to rules” in the practice of yoga is actually a bad thing. Hence, Katlin Sisson (along with Heather Lilleston) created Yoga for Bad People, an unconventional organization that brings people together for yoga retreats in cool locations with a side of non-yoga fun. We like yoga, and we like non-yoga fun, so interviewing her was a no-brainer.

Name + Occupation: Katlin Sisson, Co-Founder Yoga For Bad People

What makes for a good retreat?

A great group with great attitude and a beautiful setting.

Best habit – beauty or otherwise:


Worst habit – beauty or otherwise:

I play with my hair. I can’t stop. It’s awful.

First thing you do when you wake up:

Listen to see if my daughter is up. If she’s not, I try to sleep a tiny bit more.

How often do you wash your hair?

Everyday. (I know that’s bad!)

Favorite Living Proof product(s):

Perfect hair Day Dry Shampoo

Biggest hair regret:

I don’t have a lot of hair regrets because I am not very adventurous with my hair.

One thing you would never do to your hair:

Perm it.

How long have you been going to your stylist?

I have been going to Suite Caroline for a couple years. I’ve been seeing Jonny there for the last year. Lena is the mama colorist there. I don’t color my hair but most I know that do, go to her. She’s the bomb.

Who is your role model?

Cora Neumann [founder, Global First Ladies Alliance; former Senior Advisor, U.S. Department of State] is probably the smartest person I know. The way she has worked and shaped her career. The way she mothers her children. The relationship she has to her family. The way she encourages other women to be epic. ROLE MODEL STATUS.

What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?

Believe people when they show you who they are

Favorite inventor/gamechanger (living or dead):

Matti Makkonen. He invented the text message. He died just a year ago. He was brilliant.
