Kathleen originally came to yoga as an additional form of exercise. It wasn't until after practicing for a few weeks did she notice a mental and emotional shift in her life, and a positive change in the way she interacted with the world around her. Yoga quickly became part of her lifestyle, and she is overwhelming grateful for the ability to share her passion and knowledge as an instructor. She recognizes the tremendous amount of benefits a regular yoga practice can bring into one's life, and encourages everyone to give it a try. Her focus while teaching is to provide a safe, judgement-free zone, where both new and seasoned yogis alike can dive deeper into their practice and develop a strong connection with their mind, body, and spirit both on and off the mat.
