Inspiring and informative!

I have learned so much from this podcast! The way Kathryn interviews is intelligent and she has a good way of giving space to the guest. The guests she choses are great and I purchased a few books from her guests that keep me inspired in my own teaching.

So thank you Kathryn, you are definitely a role model.

The Teachers Daughter

I’ve been practicing yoga for years and I’m injured because of it.
We need Kathryn’s logical voice and her exploration of alternative methods of how to move in a smart and safe way. I wish she had been there when I started over 20 years ago.
But she’s here now! A must listen pod cast if you’re looking for a new way of moving.
