I have been teaching Fitness since the mid 80's. I have taught Step, Hi/Low, Strength Training, Pilates and got certified in Yoga in 2011. Yoga is my passion and I love to share it with others. In the past year I became certified to teach Senior fitness and Chair Yoga, Jillian Michael's Body Shred and Reiki Master.
I am a very positive and energetic person and love to meet new people. Teaching yoga has been the most rewarding job I have ever had. I think it makes a difference to my students and it certainly makes a difference to me!
Kathleen is an excellent instructor. She is warm and inviting and has the ability to make any level yogi feel great about their practice. I wish I could go to more of her classes!
Class is always different and very energizing.
I have been taking weekly yoga classes with Kathleen for at least the last five years. She has grown into a wonderful and confident teacher, who continues to challenge herself and her classes.
Kathleen will forever be one of the greatest, most seasoned teachers I've ever had. She exudes yoga in it's truest form through not only her teaching, but her lifestyle, as well. I first started taking Kathleen's classes at Medford Fitness and finding her was like finding a diamond in the rough. Her classes at this gym are equally comparable to classes that you would find at some very respected yoga studios. Her classes are challenging but accessible to all levels, shapes, ages, and sizes. I was so inspired by Kathleen's classes, that I ended up enrolling in a teacher training, and becoming a yoga instructor myself. I still refer back to her teachings when planning my own classes. I hope to one day, become half of the teacher that Kathleen is, and I am truly grateful for having discovered yoga through such a talented and authentic instructor!
I ask the new student if he/she is new to Yoga or new to me as a teacher. I then ask the student if he/she has any injuries or issues to share that will enable me to teach with the appropriate modification level. I ask the student if it is ok for me to make physical adjustments or if the student prefers verbal queues only. i make the student feel as comfortable as possible and help them enjoy the yoga experience.
I completed a 200 hour Yoga Alliance certification in 2011. I also am a Reiki master (since January, 2017). I am certified to teach Pilates and can incorporate some Pilates exercises in the class.
My price is negotiable, starting at 50.00 for an hour class for 1 participant.
I started teaching Cardio Dance classes at Elaine Powers in the mid 1980s and then became AFAA certified. In addition to Yoga, I teach Step, Hi/low, Spinning, Sculpt, Circuit, Body Shred and Silver Sneakers Classic and Yoga.
i have worked with students of all ages, including children, teens, middle age and Seniors. I have worked with all levels. I teach a multi level class regardless of the format.
It is important to feel comfortable with and trust the teacher. The student is the customer and deserves to be satisfied, so communication is key to ensuring that the student gets what he/she paid for. In addition, the student should share any preferences (i.e. style of yoga, pace of class, injuries or health issues) with the teacher.
The student should be clear on their style preference, i.e, vinyasa, pranayama, slow or face-paced, more athletic or not, more spiritual or not.
