Kathryn Thomas is a Registered Yoga Teacher (RYT) with Yoga Alliance, which acknowledges the completion of a yoga teacher training with an approved and active Registered Yoga School (RYS). She studied at the Yoga School of Kailua (where she received her RYT500), at Big Fish Power Yoga (where she received an additional RYT200 designation) and with Baron Baptiste (where she attended Level 1, Level 2, Level 3 and is a certified Baptiste Teacher). Currently her focus is learning more about trauma informed yoga.
After college, Kathryn was commissioned into the Navy as a helicopter pilot. She served in the Navy for 8 years, and after an accident was medically retired. Yoga helped her reclaim her life. She was able to walk without a limp, help her students deal with trauma, all because she was personally touched by Yoga.
Kathryn is the founder and Executive Director of Yoga 4 Change, a nonprofit based out of Jacksonville, Florida with the mission to promote healthy living and foster self confidence in Veterans, inmates, at-risk youth and those suffering from substance abuse.
Weekly Yoga 4 Change teaches over 1,500 students who otherwise would not have access to, or be able to afford, yoga without their programing.
