Kathleen Pizzello:

It was love at first Uttanasana.  After my first yoga class I knew the practice would transform my life forever.  Without a doubt, yoga has set my heart on fire and it is this passion that I wish to share with the world.

I began my journey of yoga teacher training in 2010 on the mystical Lago Atitlan in Guatemala focusing on Vinyasa, Sadhana, and Shamanic studies.  Soon after that I discovered Anusara and completed another 300 hours of training in alignment based vinyasa yoga.  I am currently working towards my advanced 300 hour teacher training with Sianna Sherman and Rasa Yoga, a "bhakti fusion of asana, mantra, mudra, pranayama, meditation, chanting, ritual and earth prayer."  My teaching and learning are alive and ever evolving and I hope that my love for the practice inspires others to live their own lives in joy and authenticity.

I am a certified Level 2 AcroYoga teacher, blending the tradition of yoga with the playful practice of acrobatics and the therapeutics of Thai Massage.  I have studied in depth with Sianna Sherman and Ashley Turner as an assistant for the Urban Priestess Mystery School—a journey of deep inner work, personal growth, and ancient wisdom. I am a Thai Bodyworker and Usui Reiki 2 Practitioner.  My intention is to weave all of these teachings into my life and my classes, inviting students to become the alchemists of their own souls.  My classes offer healing alignment, depth yet lightheartedness, and cultivation of a fearless heart.  My goal is to guide students to a place of freedom in their bodies, minds, and hearts.  It is with immense gratitude that I share this most transformational practice.
