Kathryn Swick


Sutra 1.2 Yoga citta vritti nirodhah, translates to “Yoga is the calming of the fluxuations of the mind”. The practice of yoga offers a pathway to peace and liberation. Kathryn’s relationship with yoga began in San Francisco during her early 20’s. After her first class, she realized she had caught a glimpse of relief. Relief from the chaos of her mind, and a taste of the experience of stillness described in the yoga sutra. Feeling deeply inspired and intrigued about the mysteries embedded in this ancient practice, Kathryn dove into a lifelong, passionate and deeply dedicated relationship with yoga.

Kathryn has trained in several modalities, including yogic lifestyle and philosophy, bhakti yoga, bikram, ashtanga, and most recently, kundalini. Her most influential teachers are Stephanie Snyder, Sri Dharma Mitra, and Kia Miller. Kathryn offers classes that combine the graceful, fluid and grouding movement of vinyasa, with the meditative exploration of kundalini yoga.

Teaching yoga is an extension of Kathryn’s personal practice, and offering of that which she has so gratefully received. She is humbled to witness the unfolding of self-love that the practice of yoga brings to the student. Kathryn has been transformed by her relationship with yoga and feels that she absolutely must share these keys to freedom with others.

Her suggestion to new and experienced students is, stay open, stay curious. There is always more to learn and explore in this practice. For this practice, is a study of yourself.
