She has received approval from Matthew to teach his wonderful Moon and Lion Sequences; and is currently working on his Advanced Baddha (Bound) sequence. Kathy has been studying and teaching yoga for over 20 years, including 15 years practicing and teaching Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga in the tradition of Shri K. Pattabhi Jois.

Kathy enjoys teaching and encouraging her students to make the practice their own by developing a consistent self practice approach; and she continues to explore her own practice through techniques of self-observation, fluid and rhythmic breathing, and inquiry into the energetic body. She has studied extensively with teachers certified or authorized by Shri K. Pattabhi Jois; including, Annie Pace, David Swenson and John Scott. She has completed David's Primary Series and Intermediate Series teacher trainings. Kathy views the practice as a path to liberation.
