About The Teacher

Kathy, also known as KATICA, is an Ayurvedic Health & Lifestyle Coach, 500-Hour Registered Yoga Teacher, and a Master Reiki Practitioner. She is a student member of the National Ayurvedic Medical Association (NAMA) and a lifelong learner of holistic health modalities who loves to share what she has learned with her clients, friends, and family. She began her yoga journey in the fall of 2000 at the Dharma Yoga Center in New York City after being diagnosed with hyperthyroid. While working full-time as a Fashion Designer, she started practicing yoga twice a week in order to counteract the symptoms of her thyroid condition. In January 2004, Kathy’s love for yoga led her to enroll in a teacher-training course in Miami, Florida. Kathy taught at local studios and spas in Miami, while also implementing “Yoga for Lunch” into the corporate world. In addition, she taught private clients at their homes and businesses. In November 2005, Kathy moved to Columbus, Ohio. The first thing she did upon arriving was to take a tour of the city to find all the local yoga studios. She has taught at McConnell Heart Health Center, local studios, country clubs, and her home studio in Worthington. Kathy has trained with Sarah Powers, Gary Kraftsow, Rodney Yee, Paul Grilley, Cyndi Lee, and many others. Her fluid yoga style is sometimes referred to as a “dance”, as she links one pose to the next with each breath. Kathy’s continuing studies and personal health experiences with Yoga, Reiki, Chinese Medicine and Ayurveda, have led her to teach in a way that blends all these practices. In October 2015, Kathy decided to train in Ayurvedic medicine with the California College of Ayurveda. Her intention is to complete the entire program at CCA to become an Ayurvedic Doctor so that she may better serve her community. In July 2016, Kathy opened an intimate and nurturing yoga and wellness center in her local community of Worthington, OH. She named it KASA Yoga and Wellness. Her mission is to design a lifestyle that inspires change through the ancient practices of Yoga, Ayurveda, Reiki, and Meditation. On this journey, she inspires her students and clients to live in the spirit of awareness, balance and transformation for optimum health and fulfillment. Kathy’s favorite quote by Mahatma Gandhi: “Be the change you wish to see in the world.”
