Kathy’s interest in yoga began as a personal mission to heal her daily battle with anxiety and depression without using medication. She was invited to a Bikram Yoga class in 2004 where she embarked on a life long journey to wellness. From the first breath, she found security, freedom, relief, and support. Bikram Yoga Teacher Training soon followed in the Spring of 2005. This channeled a new radiant being to emerge and blossom in the years to come. She walked out more confident, more energetic, more alive and more true to herself. Her dedication to her practice over the years has provided a deep awareness of the great power of yoga and the inherent healing properties it possesses.
From 2005 though 2014, Kathy excelled and ranked nationally at the USA Yoga Competitions. Her regular attendance at teacher trainings, advanced seminars, clinics, and workshops founded a wealth of knowledge and perspective to base her practice and teaching upon. Teachers from the Bikram Yoga Bend and Pure Yoga Austin studios as well as Emmy Cleaves, Ashley Hooper, Jason Winn, Mary Jarvis, Esak Garcia, Lynn Whitlow, Lisa Ingle, Christina Sell, David Swenson, Shelley Washington, close family and friends have given her a wide range of inspiration, mentoring, encouragement, coaching, and camaraderie in her career as a practitioner, teacher, studio manager, and competitor. Each has uniquely contributed to making her live at her highest potential.
Kathy thoughtfully blends principles of the east and west through innovative, inclusive, precise alignment-based connection in her teaching. Her deep interest in the origin of yoga has lead her to diligently study yoga philosophy and Ayurveda. She shares knowledge of yoga asana, philosophy, and teaching methodology as a lead member of the 105F Teacher Training Staff. Kathy teaches all levels: beginning, intermediate, and advanced classes weekly in addition to traveling to lead trainings, retreats, and workshops for teachers and students.
