Teaching for 40+ years. Yin/Yang Yoga Certified Teacher for 15 years with classes for all ages. I taught DaoYin Yoga at the SYF in 2022 and truly enjoyed meeting and sharing energies.

Background – BFA in Dance Performance from WMU. I own and instruct at my Pilates Studio in Highland Park, IL since 1997. I also lead a class in Taiji for 7 years.

Kathy Saephanh

A yoga student shared once one word to describe Kathy, and that word was Authentic. Kathy has a youthful, fun, and practical approach to sharing yoga and meditation with others.

Practicing yoga since her teens, she brings with her the understanding and importance of growth, and how yoga is essential as one undergoes changes in their life. Yoga is life, and she loves to live it!

Kimberly Sanchez

Kimberly found her path in yoga back in 2015. Having created such a positive impact in her own life, she embarked on her journey to becoming a certified yoga teacher in 2019 with Yoga and Barre Haven out of High Bridge, NJ. Growing up in a big family with many children, Kimberly always had a soft spot for nurturing children. She comes with over ten years of childcare experience as well as being certified as a Children’s Yoga and Holistic Birth Educator. One of her passions is to hold space for the families in her community and to nourish the spirits of children by integrating yoga on and off the mat. Kimberly founded Prana of Sedona in 2022, and her goal is to make sure yoga is accessible to everyone of all ages 0-99.
