Kathy Krain, CIYT Introductory II

Kathy began practicing Iyengar yoga in 2004 when a friend suggested she take an Iyengar class to help with managing pain from a back injury. It was then she began learning how to relieve her pain through the postures. Through her background in dancing she was drawn to the importance of sequencing, the detail in the attention of body awareness and clarity of instruction found in her instructors, which eventually drew her into becoming a certified Iyengar teacher herself. She is also keenly aware of the calming benefits of yoga, necessary in her career as well as in everyday life which she strives to share with her students. Her continuing education includes intensive workshops from senior teachers: Dean Lerner, Rebecca Lerner, Gabriella Gubilaro, James Murphy and Manouso Manos.  Her mentor is Warporn (Pom) Cayeiro.  She has made a career behind the scenes in television audio engineering.
