“I have introduced a few friends to her class and we all agree she is a fantastic yoga instructor. Of all the yoga classes that I have attended, I have benefited the most from Kathryn’s classes. Her outstanding ability to explain poses and detail explanation about subtle physical sensation are extremely helpful. She makes it very easy to not just learn but also understand poses. Her personal commitment and dedication to yoga practice definitely show through in her teaching. It’s always a joy to be in her class.”.
