“What you are seeking, is also seeking you.” ~ Rumi
Kathy has been practicing yoga for several years now, although she has been quite active her entire life. Kathy is a former Team Canada Volleyball Player and an avid runner, biker and climber. Of course, living at top speed for so long comes with its share of bumps and aches, which is what prompted her to initially try yoga. She had hoped that it would provide a means of healing and increase her flexibility, and it did, while also providing the added benefit of mental health therapy.
The community of Modo, the positive energy, and of course the heat, made Kathy fall in love with the practice. Come 2013, she decided that the next step in her growing passion would be to become a yoga teacher. In 2015 she made a commitment to the Modo Yoga Teacher Training program in Kelowna, BC. The role of teacher came quite naturally to Kathy as it was an organic extension of her 30 year teaching career. That being said, it did come with its share of unique challenges but Kathy now knows what it means to truly love what you do so much, that it does not feel like a job. Kathy has recently completed Moksha Modo Teacher Training, and will be taking Yin Yoga Training later this summer.
Not only is Kathy a devoted athlete and yogi but also a mother of two beautiful daughters, Sam and Jess. She is also an animal lover, nature lover, a backyard farmer and a devoted promoter of all things natural.
