“I love working with Kathleen. She helps me to get the most out of my practice by queuing up ways to make the pose work for me and my body type versus the generic yoga everyone else provides.”

– Kim D.

Hi There, I’m Kathleen

I am a Yoga Teacher and Integrative Health Coach diagnosed with osteoporosis. I love to be outside in nature, whether it is a hike or another form of exercise, being active and healthy is my passion. I want to do all the things I love for years to come, regardless of age.

I used to associate osteoporosis with being something only older women experienced, as part of post menopause. I never thought it could happen to me, especially before menopause.

As an active woman, the diagnosis came as a surprise for me, maybe it was for you too?

Many women, just like us, are diagnosed every year. Some do not find out until it’s too late. I am glad I know now so I can work to reverse or at least prevent further bone loss.

Now you might be wondering what needs to change?

Lifestyle, food choices, yoga?

And, the short answer is YES!

You might also be afraid to practice yoga now that you have a diagnosis? Or maybe you already have experienced pain in your hips, shoulders, or lower back after a yoga practice?

Your body needs to move carefully, you need a different type of yoga now.

Radiant Flow is a specially designed yoga practice combining Hatha Yoga and Restorative Yoga, along with other therapeutic techniques to increase body awareness, manage stress, nurture and strengthen the body, and improve posture for women with osteopenia and/or osteoporosis

All important benefits for helping to minimize the risk of fracturing so you can still do all the other activities in life that you enjoy!

You need support and guidance.

I am here to help!
