Hi, I'm Kathryn! Welcome to Breathe at the Beach.
Even a moment of mindful breath, in stillness or in motion, brings unity to the mind and body. This is the definition of yoga: Union.
With a consistent yoga practice, the nervous system shifts from less of a sympathetic ("fight or flight") state to more of a parasympathetic ("rest and digest") state. THIS is the goal and mission behind both my Bodywork services and Yoga offerings: to balance the nervous system. The body cannot heal in a stressful state, so we start here by activating the parasympathetic nervous system by breath work, meditation and gentle movement.
I welcome you to practice with me. You don't need experience with yoga, terminology, or fitness, you only need an open mind. At least, open enough!
You don't have to look far to find long lists of the science-based health benefits of yoga. I'd like to know, what brings you? People come to my classes for many different reasons, but most commonly, it is to FEEL and FUNCTION better! This may manifest as improved sleep quality, a strengthened stress response, greater balance, a stronger core, increased flexibility and less pain and restriction in everyday movements. It's a personal experience and the results of a yoga practice are unique to every person!
My job is to help you engage in the balancing of your own nervous system. I'm here to help and support you as you aim to unite your mind and body.
Holden Beach Yoga with Kathryn 2023
Kathryn is a breath of fresh air and a has an incredible energy. She is detailed and accommodating to any injury or limitations during a yoga class on the beach or on her massage table. She is the best in town and you won’t regret booking with her.
Hands down the best yoga instructor I’ve gone to. Calm energy, incredible ability to deliver instruction to a variety of skill levels, and classes are always fun. I’ve gone to Kathryn’s Brewery yoga, and goat yoga, and recently just went to her beach yoga on Holden beach. AMAZING!!!
Great service incredible massage excellent local business 6/5 stars
Highly recommend! Visiting from Ohio, we were warmly welcomed and made to feel at home. Beautiful practice and setting. Great flow and amazing savasana! Holden Beach + yoga = win/win!!
What a great way to start our day! Kathryn just guided my family through a fantastic gentle yoga session on the beach we all have such gratitude for her guidance!
What a wonderful experience! We did yoga Monday and Wednesday this week, and highly recommend it! The perfect mix of challenging and relaxing, and we all left feeling refreshed. We had a variety of ages (25-63)and levels with us, from a first timer to people who practice regularly and all felt comfortable and challenged. We will definitely be back next year on our annual visit!
