Nature, celebration and connection are three threads that weave throughout Kathy Lee’s life. Yoga arrived in Kathy’s life following a back injury, which left her feeling fearful of surgery and incapable of participating in her favourite outdoor activities without pain. Deciding to postpone surgery Kathy began attending regular yoga classes. Letting go of fear and allowing for slow and gradual physical improvement over a number of years eventually led Kathy to wholeheartedly complete her yoga teacher training in 2013. She now shares her experience and compassion in her work as the Manager and yoga teacher at The Yoga Sanctuary Danforth.
Kathy also spent 12 years living with her husband in an intentional community where they shared the joys of planning and preparing weekly meals and celebrations for up to 75 children and adults. She also worked in her community as a consensus facilitator; organic gardener with a weekly market; and as an environmental educator for a non-profit grassroots group dedicated to protecting a local river.
Kathy believes that yoga invites us to a deeper understanding of ourselves, which then ripples outwards in all directions connecting us to others, to the earth, to the universe.
Kathy’s Group Activity at Bliss
Medicine Wheel Sundial Yoga
An energizing and accessible yoga exploration to start your day!
Drawing inspiration from many traditions, Kathy will guide you to the four directions through a flowing Hatha yoga sequence designed to invite a personal journey inward. We will connect breath with movement as we discover the symbols connected with each direction – North, South, East and West – and you will become your own sundial as you travel around your mat.
Yoga is a practice of self-discovery, and when we bring a sense of curiosity to our yoga mat we can begin to notice what is – without judgment. With this awareness we can begin to open to what is possible. Start your awesome bliss day by connecting deeply with mind, body and spirit!
