Kathleen grew up in Chicago and spent most of her early life dancing. She was introduced to yoga by a college dance professor and initially practiced as a way to relieve some of her body aches and pains. As her dance career faded, her interest in yoga moved from merely physical to more. Eager to deepen her study of and relationship with yoga, Kathleen completed her 200 hour yoga teacher training in June 2015 at Bloom Yoga Studio. She teaches yoga as she taught dance, with a respect to its function and form, a playful willingness to explore, deep curiosity and joy.
