I am grateful she has been, and continues to be, a mentor and guide on my path."

—Nona Jordan, Master Coach, Guide, and Author

Restorative Breathwork is a powerful system to help heal yourself and to learn to help others. My training with Kathleen has particularly helped me as a yoga instructor with private clients. The teachings are applicable whether they are looking simply for stress relief or deep spiritual healing and growth.

Jill Loftis, Owner/Director, Uttara Yoga Studio

Kathleen led a three-part basic breathwork class for eight clients at the mental health free clinic run by my agency. The outcomes have been nothing short of amazing! After three months clients report improved sleep, better control of anger and stress, a marked reduction in panic attacks, and the need for less medication to manage symptoms of anxiety. Best of all, Kathleen provided our clients with tools which continue to empower them in their journeys toward mental wellness. We will definitely offer this class again!
