Kathy Krain, CIYT Introductory II

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.  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.
