"Kathleen is the quintessential spiritual being.
All of her classes are guided with love, kindness and great care without judgment. Yet, she challenges our human frailties by facilitating each one of us to be more focused and aware. Thus, our bodies begin to do things that we could not imagine as we stretch our muscles and strengthen our core. Kathleen has helped me to reclaim the sacred nature of my body that is nothing short of a miracle of exquisite order and intelligence inseparable from my soul. You cannot help from making an universal connection with Kathleen."
