Kitty began her yoga practice in 2001 at Bikram Yoga in Minneapolis. She found that yoga was an excellent means to keep her body healthy, while helping to rehab many old injuries from a life of running, gymnastics, and other sports. She learned over time that relaxation through the breath work that goes hand in hand with a yoga practice was helping her sleep as well as keeping her mind clear and calm on a day to day basis.
After 4 years of personal practice, she knew she wanted to teach, and in 2005 Kitty completed her first RYT-200 certification for Hot Yoga through Corepower Yoga in Minneapolis. She began teaching in the fall of 2005. Over the next year, she completed her second RYT-200 certification for Vinyasa Yoga, as well as training to teach Yoga Sculpt. In 2012, Kitty completed her third RYT-200, and RYT-500 training in Brazil through Modo Yoga. She also completed Modo Flow training in New York City in 2014. Kitty is a graduate of Align Pilates’ Align Barre training, and has been teaching Barre classes since 2009.
