Kathy’s curiosity for yoga began almost 30 years ago as a graduate student in nutrition sciences at Tufts University in Boston. What started as a form of exercise grew to become a profound practice in self study and learning how to cope with life’s many highs and lows. In 2020, during the pandemic, Kathy fulfilled a longstanding goal of completing a 200-hr yoga teacher training program with Yoga Shanti. She has since completed an additional 200-hour and a 300hr-hour Advanced Teacher training with Colleen and Rodney. She was able to complete all the teacher trainings online from her home in Hawaii. Kathy loves being a student and even more a part of the Yoga Shanti community. She remains involved as a mentor in their teacher training programs and teaching community yoga classes via Zoom for Yoga Shanti. Kathy hopes to integrate her knowledge of nutrition and wellness with her yoga trainings.
