Grace Frisone

I received my 200 Hour Teacher Certification from Long Island Yoga School with Laurie Ahlemann and Jennie Wilson in May 2014. I am currently working on completing my 500 Hour Certification with Long Island Yoga School. I earned a YogaKids Foundations Certification from Gail Grossman in October 2014. I received my Restorative Teacher Certification from Gail Grossman in January 2015. And in September 2015 I earned my Reiki Initiation Certification from Reiki Master Laurie Ahlemann. 

Kathleen Katzmann

Kathleen turned to yoga in 2002 when she was expecting her 4th son, and has been practicing regularly ever since. Having put her body through much wear and tear growing up as a competitive gymnast and acrobat, ultimately fracturing a vertebra during college cheerleading, she is grateful for the benefits that a consistent practice has brought. After receiving an engineering degree from Lehigh University and spending a few years on Wall Street in computer programming and investment banking, she decided to retire from a desk job due both to her bad back and desire to raise her family full time. For years amid a variety of athletic regimens including competitive martial arts, she powered through pain until finally discovering yoga. Kathleen knows firsthand the challenges of finding a balance of effort and ease (shtira and sukkah) to deepen asanas without furthering injury, and brings this understanding to her students. Her ultimate goal as a teacher is to bring her students not only physical but mental and spiritual rewards of yoga, infusing them with tidbits of yogic philosophy, sanskrit, and theory behind the asanas. Kathleen completed her 200 hour RYT training in 2015 at Om Sweet Om and an additional training in Restorative Yoga with Gail Grossman in 2016. While her go-to personal practice is ashtanga-inspired vinyasa, she can be found teaching a variety of classes at all levels, specific to the students in front of her at any given moment. She has participated in classes and workshops with many renowned yogis, and is grateful to all of her teachers past and present for helping to shape her practice, philosophy and teaching style.
This class is designed for the aging body. We will stretch and breathe while learning about key muscles involved in the postures and how we can engage them to create a deeper and more stable practice. Using props whenever necessary, we will open areas of the body that modern life does not access (or in fact tightens), leading to better physiological health, i.e. practicing passive backbends improves breathing and circulation to the heart. Using Yoga we will maintain strength and flexibility, along with dignity and grace!
