My only goal walking in was to have more mental energy. Four months in, I have lost weight, increased both physical and mental energy, and have a better understanding of mind-body connection. I highly recommend anyone, especially new comers like me, to try a different approach to healing and feeling better.

I started working with Kathryn after six months and dozens of flights worth of work travel. I was ungrounded, exhausted, easily sick and my digestion was off after years of travel bugs and spice infused eating habits. After many shared experiences, I knew that Ayurveda could help me find grounding and a restored relationship between my mental and physical. Working with Kathryn has given me the routine I needed and the mindfulness my body deserves. I couldn’t believe how much I had normalized the exhausted state I had been in until I started seeing major shifts. I sleep better. I give my food gratitude. I have a morning routine that makes me feel at home no matter where I am in the world and I can now connect the dots when something is off. My Ayurvedic practice has become a natural and foundational part of of my daily life and I look forward to more growth within it. I am so grateful to Kathryn for her expansive knowledge and empathetic teaching style. Some weeks were harder than others, but she always made sure I could rise to the challenge.

Working with Kathryn has been such a source of joy, comfort and support. I started with my initial consultation and made the leap for a three-month period. My experience with her was amazing, so much so that we worked together for another three months. Kathryn is incredibly supportive and with her support I was able to address some triggers, hone in on small, workable goals and do some things that I really never thought possible of myself! I adore Kathryn as a professional as well as a friend. I’ve deepened my Ayurvedic practice and have created lifelong habits and routines that have changed my life. I cannot recommend Kathryn enough.

Nancy Viemeister (Kauai, HI)

I am so glad that I found Kathryn, she has been a key part of my healing health journey. She is extremely knowledgeable and passionate about what she does and creates a beautiful, comfortable space to learn, share and create. I am so grateful for her support and guidance in my life, and recommend her to anyone interested in learning more about Ayurveda and integrating the practices into your daily routine, as well as overall support for your physical, mental and emotional well being. She truly is the whole package of health coach, teacher and counselor all in one.
