Student Testimonials

I am so glad that I chose to take this class with Kathryn. She is able to put Ayurvedic philology into a simple format, perfect - whether you know a little about the topics or if you know nothing at all. Not only was the class applicable but it also inspired me to continue to pursue Ayurveda which has changed my life for the best! Thank you for everything Kathryn I’d be on a different path if it wasn’t for meeting you and taking this class!

Sonata Beasley

Being a health coach for over a decade, knew that this is what I had wanted to do as a service for others. I was at a point where I wanted to expand my knowledge and my approach to coaching and had always been interested in Ayurveda and the way of encompassing a balanced lifestyle. I then met Kathryn and she was such a breath of fresh air when it came to learning the basics to Ayurveda. After my initial intake with her and getting a glimpse into her gentle yet effective style of coaching, I was elated to study under her and take a fundamentals course as well as train in abhyanga and Shirodhara. In this time I got to experience first hand how powerful these practices are and see changes in people along the way that made huge shifts in their lives. The combination of Kathryn’s knowledge and passion for this ancient medical system is infectious! She explains things in a way that makes sense and is easy to understand and leaves you eager to learn more. I continue to learn from her and she is always there for any questions that may arise. I myself have adopted these very practices into my daily life and am forever grateful for this knowledge. Because of the information, I learned, along with business skills and in-depth client follow-ups it has allowed my practice to evolve and continues to grow every day. I look forward to working with her again in the future!

“I participated in Kathryn’s introductory course to Ayurveda and was so taken with it, I took the plunge and enrolled in her professional program! Kathryn’s approach to this healing science was so easy and approachable, I quickly integrated the knowledge she imparted through our conversations. I look forward to diving deeper into Ayurveda and would encourage anyone with even a passing interest to take her introductory course. The knowledge that I have a Kapha-Pitta dual dosha has changed the way I not only eat, but digest all of my surroundings. She’s awesome.”
