During grad school, Kathie tried a kundalini yoga class at a mindfulness day event. She’d never experienced something that felt so weird and challenging in the moment, yet left her feeling lit from within afterwards. Yoga has played an important role since, helping her to live life a little more calmly, bravely and joyfully. While living in Costa Rica, Kathie completed her 250 hour yoga teacher training at Caribe Yoga Academy. Kathie teaches beginner-friendly vinyasa classes with a focus on conscious breathing, and hopes that everyone practicing with her feels the peace and freedom that yoga practice can bring.
