Kathy, “A Warrior Goddess in the Wisdom Years”, has spent the last 12 years studying and practicing Yoga. She received her initial 200-hour certification in 2008 from the Kripalu Center for Yoga and Health and went onto complete the 500-hour level training in Yoga Therapy with the Pranakriya School of Yoga Healing Arts.
With a deep passion for health, Kathy has investigated a variety of healing modalities, including in-depth studies in Positional Therapy with Lee Albert at Kripalu. The Positional Therapy work is a simple, easy, yet powerful way to bring muscles back into balance. Another area of study and training has been Ayurveda to enhance your yoga practice with wisdom and knowledge. Training with Yoganand Michael Carroll, Tias Little, Stephen Cope, and Marlysa Sullivan have all helped Kathy to bring more awareness and healing to herself, and a deeper understanding from which she can fully share all the benefits of yoga with students and friends.
Kathy brings to her teaching an enthusiastic belief that the mat is your refuge – the place to be you without judgment, the place of compassion and acceptance to trust yourself first, listen to your body and move into stillness. Kathy steps onto her mat as the teacher with deep gratitude for the wisdom her teachers and students share with her.
During this weekend retreat, as a community of women, we will come together to learn from each other while exploring connection, creation and flow in life and practice. Connection and community (sangha) are vital components of overall well-being and spiritual exploration, and something many of us have been missing these past few years.
To enable as much community and connection as possible, this retreat is offered as a hybrid experience, with the option to participate live in-person at the Belfast Yoga Studio or live-stream through Zoom.
Throughout our time together we will explore accessible practices and teachings around connecting with the feminine energy – enabling us to more deeply and authentically connect with others, tap into creativity, and move with ease and grace through life.
This retreat is offered by Jaime Boswell, Kathy Fotterall, and Sandra Levin of Whole Soul Wellness Yoga – all advanced yoga teachers of therapeutic yoga who love to connect with women exploring how to be their best selves in middle and older years.
