In May 2015, Kathleen left her position as film producer and took a leap of faith to begin her journey toward becoming a yoga teacher, and yoga has since been an incredibly transformative tool in her everyday life.
She completed her 200hr Vinyasa teacher training in October 2015 at The Shala Cape Town Yoga School, and has since been not only a teacher but also the full time studio manager.
Kathleen has a passion for teaching Beginners and is one of the lead teachers of the studios reputable Absolute Beginners Course that runs twice a year. She also teaches 4 other permanent classes at the studio every week.
She strives to encourage all her students to be mindful about their alignment and foundation, to embrace their inner teacher, and to take the time to develop a self-practice.
Kathleen feels strongly about the importance of addressing mental health issues through movement and meditation, and continues to use yoga as a tool to help her clients with depression, anxiety and other illnesses.
