Kathy attended her first Bikram Yoga class in September 2004. All of her buried anxiety, frustration, depression, and suffering began to melt away with the first deep inhale and exhale. Eagerly supported by her partner, family, friends, and teachers, her first class quickly turned into 10 classes, 1 month became 3 months, and soon training seemed inevitable as she found the remedy to feel energized, confident, and on her way to feeling whole once again. For more than 10 years, Kathy has focused tremendous effort and energy on understanding every part of her personal practice. Actively training and competing regionally and nationally allowed her to gather insight from all perspectives of teachers, coaches, and mentors.
