Client Testimonials

"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."

- Lauryn Russo, (Wailua, HI)


"The best thing about Kathryn is her energy, her approach is not streamlined for the masses, rather what worked for me and my goals. 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 newcomers like me, to try a different approach to healing and feeling better."

- Melissa Wilson (Hanamaulu, HI)


"Kathryn is the best. She is driven by passion, operates from a deep understanding of holistic health care from her own life experience, and is dedicated to sharing that knowledge with others. I have worked with her on an individual basis to overcome some of the biggest obstacles in my own personal health and to identify and create a healthy lifestyle that will support me for years to come. Highly recommended."

- Mat Inglis (Kapa'a, HI)


"An Elemental Practice is a gem in the heart of Kapaa. The space is open and inviting, filled with items of simple beauty and healing products to soothe your body and mind. Kathryn’s warm smile and welcoming personality made me feel at home instantly and I witnessed her approach others with this same loving presence. Our journey has just begun, but I am so excited to see what else her guidance can help me uncover!! Very grateful to have found An Elemental Practice!!"

- Arien Reed (Kilauea, HI)


"I can’t say enough about An Elemental Practice. Not only is Kathryn a wealth of knowledge regarding Ayurvedic practices and holistic wellbeing, but she could not be easier to talk to. She will take you step by step through this journey. Bonus - her space feels like an oasis!"

- Danielle McCoy (Evergreen, CO)


"I have had fairly chronic stomach issues and after working with Kathryn they have started to alleviate! She made everything very easy to understand and all the changes she suggested could be implemented easily into my daily routine. It feels great to be seeing changes with a natural holistic approach and I would definitely recommend an Elemental Practice to anyone! Kathryn is a wealth of knowledge and helped me greatly with my digestive issues. She helped me make small, achievable adjustments to my daily diet and helped me realize what was triggering certain issues for me. She is not only knowledgeable, but caring and makes your sessions a very safe space to share and learn. I highly recommend her and An Elemental Practice!"

- Jaclyn Stoerzbach (Seattle, WA)


"Kathryn was such a delight to work with! I did the initial consultation and 3 month program with her and I really benefited from it. Working with her is a mix of having a therapist and a health coach- we dig deep, we chose mantras but she also really guides me through some healthy habits that have stuck! My energy levels heighten, my sleep improved and my anxiety lessened- she really helped me find balance and nix certain things that at the time I didn’t realize weren’t working for me. She also helped me develop morning and evening rituals that I will use. I’d highly recommend Kathryn to anyone interested!"

- Gina Baiamonte (San Francisco, CA)


"Kathryn was able to gently guide me through the practice of Ayurveda to make meaningful changes in my lifestyle to allow for healing. I highly recommend her abilities and skills in coaching one to be the manager of their own health."

- Noreen Steinmetz (Kapahi, HI)


"Kathryn is warm, friendly, and full of knowledge and awareness about the Ayurvedic Practice. Her space is accessible, inviting, peaceful, and full of items to help get you started on an Ayurvedic lifestyle. She's down to earth, funny, and full of life- I felt comfortable with her right off the bat. I recommend anyone who is curious about Ayurveda, regular practitioners, or those who just simply want to live healthier to check her out!"

- Rachel Piano-Pooley (Kapa’a, HI)


"When I sought out Elemental Practice, I was looking for more information about how to start implementing Ayurveda principles in my everyday life. Kathryn not only taught me how important self care is, but also taught me so much about Ayurveda. I highly recommend going!!"

- Courtney King (Koala, HI)


"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. "

- Katie Hale (San Francisco, CA)


"Twice I've had the pleasure and absolute fortune to live with Kathryn during a one to two week period and experience her healing through Ayurveda. Kathryn explains her modalities in a way that allows you to understand yourself through Ayurveda + visualize the true beauty of their benefits. She is remarkably well informed and continues to discover more each day, so as her client you are provided with constant knowledge + growth. Her teachings have proved that by simply understanding your own needs and making small adjustments accordingly, overtime you will have a life changing outcome -- and that journey is just so incredibly fun!"

- Marissa Wingo (Chicago, IL)


"I began working with Kathryn after my second child was born. It was a perfect storm of hormonal imbalances and sleep deprivation. As we were adjusting to life with 2 kids, we also moved! I found life as a mother, wife and business owner overwhelming and found myself in a very anxious state. We sought Kathryn’s counsel and guidance in an effort to regain our family equilibrium. She helped us focus on eating nourishing foods and carving out time to be outside. Her approach was simple, yet life changing. She helped lay down a foundation for simple daily changes. Simple changes can be hard, but she held us accountable.  We are beyond grateful for her guidance and support!"
